Meagan is a bartender at Restaurant R’evolution in New Orleans and she’s come up with a delicious looking recipe that involves a scratch-made Pop-Tart (filled with fig jam) that’s covered with a glaze infused with 1/2 cup of port wine.

You can get the full recipe on Meagan’s site, just be sure you don’t accidentally give these to the kids in the morning rush. That won’t end well.

dungeons and drafts

Most sports bars aren’t really the kind of place where geeks feel at home, so Melissa Garza came up with the idea for Dungeons and Drafts. It’s a bar just for geeks in Fort Collins, Colorado. Not surprisingly, their kickstarter fully funded in under seven hours.

The bar will look the part with styling like a medieval tavern and the drinks will be themed. You’ll be able to sip Thyme Lord, Grain for Ore, and Study in Pink in addition to over 30 beers, meads, and ciders.

Jello

A Keurig machine makes it possible to get a single-serving of your favorite coffee in seconds. It’s great for mornings. The Jevo cranks out 20 Jell-O Shots in just 10 minutes using pods and the accompanying machine. It’s great for parties.

This gadget is targeting bars since not many people will require 20 Jell-O shots at a time, but there’s no reason you couldn’t order one to sit right next to your Keurig. Just don’t get the two mixed up or you’ll be in big trouble.

2Q

If you owned this Beer Engine bike by the Hogs Back Brewery, you could take the pub with you wherever you go. The motorcycle was commissioned by the Surrey, UK-based brewery for a Discovery Channel competition, and it features an onboard bar and a sidecar that’s was made from an actual beer barrel.

Safe? No. Awesome? Yes.

Unfortunately, the bike was disqualified from the competition (apparently the sidecar was the issue), but the brewery still displays the bike proudly.

Yes, this winter has been absolutely terrible but snowsculpt has found a way to make it a little easier to “bear”. Dave Rothstein is a snow sculptor in Northampton, Massachusetts who built a giant igloo, turned it into a speakeasy, and then served drinks to the neighborhood. He told Mass Live:

“It seemed a shame to let it go to waste, with only me enjoying it.”

He makes both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and serves them up for free in shot glasses made of ice. The last few weekends he’s had as many as 70 people a night stopping by his igloo.

pal

It’s been about a year since Palcohol powdered alcohol was approved by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau and then abruptly unapproved due to inaccurate labeling concerns. Now, it’s been approved again and the company plans to have four varieties of their product available soon.

“Potential for abuse isn’t grounds for us to deny a label,” the spokesperson said to The Associated Press.

There’s still the question of how individual states will regulate the product. Colorado already has legislation on the table that would ban its sale altogether. Those states that choose to allow the sale of Palcohol could have it on shelves as soon as this summer.
