Our friends at Chillax have been our go-to folks for making the weekends rock. Their Chillax Lounges, GIANT Beach Blanket and Whiskey Ice Cubes – we’ve been loving them all. We asked our resident Bourbon fan, Jon, to share his thoughts on the Chillax Whiskey Ice Cubes we’ve been sent. In Season 3 of The West Wing, in the episode Bartlet for America, Leo has … Continue reading Cheers to the Weekend and Sipping Bourbon over Chillax Whiskey Ice Cubes
A few weeks ago, Jon regaled us with tales of his recent family adventure in the wilds of Alaska. Today, he finishes the story. Enjoy! The Caravan eventually wobbles down a one-lane dirt road to the river’s edge in a town called Hope. I assume it was a town; we don’t see any structures while we’re there.

I don’t fly for work as much as I used to, … Continue reading What’s In The Bag?

It all sounds relaxing and wonderful. But it’s more than that, right? For most guys, our relationships with our fathers are a cornerstone of our personality, shaping us deeper than maybe we care … Continue reading Fathers And Sons
A while back, a friend of mine had just had his second kid and asked me if I had had any trouble with my second. Loaded question, but in short, absolutely I did. I was only about two years ahead of his position at the time, but I told him that I went into the second kid with that “I GOT THIS” confidence and got … Continue reading And I Shall Call Him Number Two
