The Bev Tie—only the fanciest bros need apply.

The tie is essentially a giant, wearable koozie. In addition, the Bev Tie features a neck strap with a velcro enclosure, eliminating the need to store windsor knots in a knowledge bank that’s already been decimated by alcohol. Check out an additional pic below. [click to continue…]

If you’re a space geek that drinks fluids, there are a surprising number of drinkware options at your disposal. Now you can add these Nebula Glasses to your collection.

This Nebula Glasses Set lets you start your day gazing on the wonder of space as captured by NASA’s telescopes. These glasses are decorated with four nebulae: the Veil, the Butterfly, the Helix, and the Seahorse. (We’re using their friendly names because, “Pass me the glass with the image of the nebula near NGC 2074” is too complicated a request before coffee.) Each holds 10 ounces, but if we end up in zero-g, all bets are off.

Here Comes The Mufgel

Say hello to the Cronut’s slightly demented cousin: the “Mufgel”. Scot Rossillo of Brooklyn’s The Bagel Store (the same joint behind the famous rainbow bagel) semi-invented the muffin/bagel monstrosity this past July.

Rossillo noted to Gothamist that inspiration came in the form of a radio commercial that actually coined the name “Mufgel” while poking fun at crazy food trends in NYC. Yes, we’re living in a world where jokes based on food crazes become new food crazes. Nothing is sacred.

Rossillo also noted to Gothamist that he makes 42 Mufgels each day, and he usually sells out by closing time. Well, the Mufgel looks delicious, but is it just me or does the name sound like a terrible hair-care product? Check out more pics and the inspirational radio commercial below. [click to continue…]

As one of the main 2016 Olympic sponsors and the official restaurant of the Games, McDonald’s is attempting to break away from its unhealthy image by offering a “STEP-it” fitness tracker as a Happy Meal toy.

The wrist-worn pedometers encourage physical activity by blinking slowly or quickly depending on a child’s activity. They will be available in Happy Meals for a four week period at locations in the U.S. and Canada.

“Step-it is in line with McDonald’s general philosophy for Happy Meal toys, which is to make toys that encourage either physical or imagination-based play,” McDonald’s Canada Senior Marketing Manager, Michelle McIImoyle, explains to CityNews.

See the tracker in action in the video below. [click to continue…]

Strawberry Mario

Strawberry Mario finally won the heart of Princess Peach and together they made one hell of a smoothie. Unfortunately, married life got the best of him and he started drinking. That’s when Lime Mario swooped in. The result was a daiquiri recipe that tasted kinda bitter.

As part of the recent “Cake: The Final Frontier – A Celebration of 50 Years of Star Trek Collaboration”, Margi Chambers of CakeArt by Margi Chambers created this incredible Phaser, Tricorder, and Communicator Cake.

Margi states that the edible items are fashioned entirely from gum paste and fondant while staying as close to original specs as possible. It was one of many amazing Star Trek creations present at the Las Vegas event. Check out additional pics below. [click to continue…]

While brainstorming the possible results of brand collaborations, London-based graphic designer Jack Lalley came up with this “Starbucks X Spotify” series of coffee cup designs.

The cups draw inspiration from Kanye West, Adele, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Drake, but will almost certainly remain in concept world forever. Starbucks would have to take into consideration any licensing fees and, of course, customers who would refuse to carry something around that bears an image of Justin Bieber. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

Diners at a Santa Monica, California Denny’s received some unexpected entertainment with their breakfast recently when Hollywood icon (and possible immortal) Dick Van Dyke and his a capella group The Vantastix spontaneously burst into song.

Their impromptu rendition of “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” was obviously well received, based on the applause and heavy smartphone presence, and will no doubt serve as some of the best free advertising Denny’s could ask for. Watch the video below. [click to continue…]
