190e_got_replica_dragonclaw_goblet

So you’re planning a vacation to Dragonstone, are you? You’ll have fun. Of course, the weather isn’t great and it’s kind of remote. There’s also a certain Red Woman who likes to keep things a little too festive and fiery… but otherwise it’s fine.

If you visit Dragonstone, this Dragonclaw goblet makes a great souvenir. It’s absolutely perfect for raising a toast to the one true king (whoever that is) and it’ll be available for purchase in October.

Simpsons-Wine-1

We all know that Homer Simpson’s more of a Duff beer guy, but I can think of two reasons why Homer would be all over these Simpsons-themed wine bottles designed by Constantin Bolimond. First off, uh, alcohol. Secondly, the bottles are designed to look like Marge and him, so it’s the ultimate form of flattery.

Constantin’s bottles were also inspired by Pieter Mondrian’s art, and while they’re only a concept for right now, we’d love to see them for sale sometime in the near future.

Check out some more pics of the bottles after the break…

Well, I’m not too sure how William here is able to pour a beer with his forehead. I’m thinking witchcraft. Sorcery. Weird science-y stuff.

That, or he has a very sticky forehead.

sonic

This is just the thing to have on hand next time the Doctor wanders into your kitchen looking for something to drink. It looks just like a sonic screwdriver, but pop off the tip and it’s a handy dandy bottle opener. Is there anything the sonic can’t do?

Well…Wood. It doesn’t do wood.

winnie the pooh glass 1

Sometimes I forget that Winnie the Pooh is part of Disney’s pantheon. The character all stuffed with fluff is cute, and these glassware designs by Nendo for Walt Disney Japan emphasizes that. The basic cup and bottle come with different silicone lids that feature Winnie the Pooh sticking his head in a jar of honey and floating away on a balloon. I’d love to buy the entire glassware collection!

A new record has been set for the most expensive, single free Starbucks drink. The previous record, as we noted back in May, was a 128-ounce, $54 sexagintuple vanilla bean mocha frappuccino. The new record was set by a woman named Sameera, and she was able to come up with a drink that clocked in at a little over $60–a pretty incredible feat! After scanning her loyalty card the total came out to $57.75, which still snags the top prize.

Sameera went all out when she decided to claim the world record: she checked in with her local Starbucks beforehand, contacted local media outlets and she even brought some friends for support. She tells Consumerist:

“I waited ’till just before closing time so that I wouldn’t be inconveniencing the baristas while they’re attending to customers,” Sameera noted when she wrote in to the Consumerist. “They were really excited about making the drink as well, so that was pretty cool.”

However, Starbucks reached out to the Consumerist and noted that their official policy on the recent record-breaking drink trend is that it’s against the company’s policies to serve large, blended drinks “by the vat.” Apparently, a Frappuccino–which is what Sameera’s drink technically started as–can only be served in a container that’s no larger than 24-ounces. Their official statement is as follows:

With over 170,000 ways to customize beverages at Starbucks, we know that personalization is a big part of the Starbucks Experience for both our customers and our partners (employees), however this particular customization was excessive and something that we do not encourage. We want to ensure our customers receive the highest quality and most delicious tasting food or beverage products from us and, we don’t believe that this particular beverage choice was reflective of that.

Per our existing policy, beverages larger than Trenta size (31 oz.) cannot be made or served. This includes personal cups that exceed 31 oz (or a Trenta-sized cup). For blended beverages and espresso drinks, those cannot be made or served in sizes larger than a Venti (24 oz cold cup/20 oz hot cup).

Ah. Well, I guess Starbucks sure turned into a Debbie Downer of sorts. Is this the official end of the most-expensive-drink trend at Starbucks? Maybe, but I’m just waiting for someone to figure out another cool trend. It’s just a matter of time!
