Actor Chris Pratt had some fun promoting his upcoming appearance in GQ (along with Fireball Whiskey) by giving us all an acting lesson, while hilariously drunk. Apparently, whiskey (Fireball only) is what it takes to help you truly understand the imminent threat of being eaten alive by a dinosaur.

See Chris’s tweet and the NSFW (language) video after the break.

The TGX tactical drinking flask offers 6 oz of liquid storage in a stainless steel housing with a matte black finish, textured PVC accent and screw-on cap. A nylon holster with 1 1/2″ belt loop is also provided for portability, as well as integrated MOLLE webbing.

It’s the kind of flask a spy like Archer would probably love to bring with him on an important mission that requires laser-like focus.

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.

Check out the project video after the break.

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.

Easter isn’t really Easter until you slurp vodka-infused Jell-O out of a chocolate bunny head right? Sounds like the beginning of a wholesome new tradition to me.
