Never Miss A Beat…

best-urinal-ever

Pole Position Sports Bar in Tacoma, Washington is situated right next to a strip club called Fox’s. Since visitors are not allowed to drink in nudie bars in Washington State, the bathroom architects at Pole Position made a legendary move by adding a peephole above one of the urinals in the men’s restroom. Thereby enabling imbibing patrons to gaze straight into the flesh den, and in turn solidifying its status as one of the best bar bathrooms in the world.

Kate Moss’s Champagne Titty

kate-moss-champagne-glass-coupe-titty

In a tradition allegedly dating back to Marie Antoinette, a body part that we’ve seen thousands of times now has its own Champagne coupe modeled after it. That’s right, Kate Moss’s left breast has been the inspiration for the shape of this cup—moulded while the supermodel was pregnant for extra volume—by Lucien Freud’s daughter, British sculptor Jane McAdam Freud. Commissioned by Richard Caring’s Mayfair restaurant 34 to celebrate Moss’s 25 years of service in the fashion industry, the glass will be available for use beginning in October at 34 and its three sister restaurants across London. It’s without a doubt the closest you’ll ever get to partying with the fashion icon, and the only way to classily cop a feel.

The Burryman

burryman-whiskey

The key figure in the annual Burryman’s Parade, which takes place on the second Friday of August, in South Queensferry, Scotland. Tradition has it that a local man is covered from head to toe in burrs that he has collected, and paraded along a seven-mile route with stops at pubs, factories, and official’s houses. During each pause, the Burryman is given whisky to drink through a straw, and money, as tradition states “that he will bring good luck to the town if they give him whisky and money, and that bad luck will result if the custom is discontinued.” This year the festival was “ground to a halt” when the Burryman got a burr in his eye. Luckily, all that whisky helped ease his pain, but who knows about the luck of the town?

There’s No Beer at the Dogfish Inn

dogfish-inn
 
Ironic? Yes.

Thoughtfully designed by Studio Tack in Brooklyn, the Dogfish Inn is a 16 room escape on the quiet coast of Delaware, home to some of the cleanest beaches in America. Rates start at $250 / night
