Bow ties = Jackass

With the exception of attending a black tie event or owning a fried chicken franchise wearing bow ties are generally a mistake.

Mini Cooper

My wife and I recently brought home a Mini Cooper. The Mini is a great car with a high attention to detail. Floor mats backed with Velcro to prevent movement and rain sensitive wipers are some details Mini designer's considered. My personal favorite is the color changeable accent lighting. A small switch near the driver seat allows one to scroll through the color wheel, pressing the switch in the opposite direction even allows for a color's brightness to be changed.

The Esquire Party Book

The Esquire Party Book is my reference for making cocktails. First printed in 1935 then renewed in 1963 the book covers the classic drinks and many more. It is also greatly illustrated by Seymour Chwast.
