Things aren’t what they seem in this beautiful, two volume Limited Edition from Stillhouse.
A couple weeks ago we attended the launch and celebration of Leffe beer’s Craft Your Character NYC campaign, an ongoing search for true men of character. From scaling a church clocktower in Prague, to crashing an Indian wedding, each of the five finalists had a unique story to tell and refreshing, Belgian beer was enjoyed by all. The winning entry came from Ryan Eberts, a Connecticut-based Teacher and Fishman who had spent time in Bangladesh working with orphans for two and a half years. The ladies in the crowd melted at his story about one specific child he taught, and what it meant to truly teach. Have a look at all the stories after the jump, and put your thinking caps on as the Leffe Stories of Character will be traveling to other cities in the US in the next year.
Pretty interesting to see all the design specifics for one glass.

In their new project Craft Your Character, the Belgian beer brand is in search of a story that made you who you are today. For New Yorkers, there are two open casting calls this week (Saturday and Monday) which will give you the opportunity to sell yourself and your story to the brand. If your story is picked, you might just end up in Belgium at an Abbey drinking beer and eating fries. Now you might be thinking “great, thanks for telling us but, what about you?” Well, I’ll tell you about how I got to where I am…
The 137th Kentucky Derby happens this weekend. The event wouldn’t be correct without some bourbon, and this year Woodford Reserve (the official bourbon of the derby) commissioned artist Brett Armory to design the bottle. So buy one if you can find one, and drink to fast horses, smart bets, and southern belles.
Time Out New York put together a nice guide to get you drunk and fed all around NYC. That above is something called a Birria de res taco which is available all the way out in Jackson Heights, Queens.
