The price for such luxury? $5,000 per person, per day. The ship also features high-end restaurants, a 694-seat cabaret theater, and a 1920s-themed lounge decorated in silver, gold, black, and white. The maiden voyage in July, 2016 will be a 14-night cruise from Monte Carlo to Venice, Italy. Tickets just went on sale last week, available only to previous Regent customers, and are going fast. Tickets will be open to the public beginning February 4–if any remain, that is.

  • Don’t Bogart Oskar Blues’ Pinner IPA

    It’s no secret that the folks at Colorado’s Oskar Blues Brewery enjoy their state’s liberal attitudes toward cannabis. Hell, they’ve even promoted the fact that an empty can of Dale’s Pale Ale can be used as a smoking device. But with their latest brew, Oskar Blues’ love of marijuana is more evident than ever. Named after the slang term for tiny joints, Pinner Throwback IPA is actually Oskar Blues’ lowest ABV offering at 4.9%. So it’s on the weaker side, like a pinner. And once you pop the top, you are greeted with a very familiar aroma that reminds you just how closely related hops and cannabis are. If that’s not enough for you, to really make their point, the cans are stamped with “Can I Be Blunt?” above the logo. The not-so-subtle brew is already available in Colorado and North Carolina where Oskar Blues breweries are located. All 41 states where Oskar Blues is available will begin selling Pinner beginning March 1. Remember, don’t bogart that can. Chug, chug, pass.

  • KFC Outdoes Itself With Double Down Dog

    KFC restaurants the world over continue besting each other in sandwiches made with friend chicken buns as KFC Philippines reveals the Double Down Dog. The original Double Down, released in the US in 2010, was a simple sandwich with bacon and cheese and sauce between two fried chicken filets. Then KFC South Korea unleashed the Zinger Double Down MAXX, adding a hashbrown and salsa. Finally, we thought the apex of Double Down innovation arrived last year with the Zinger Double Down KING, featuring a bacon cheeseburger and two sauces betwixt the bun of fried chicken patties. We were wrong. The Double Down Dog, like all Double Down sandwiches, eschews traditional bread for a bun made of fried chicken. And this time, the chicken surrounds a plump hot dog and what appears to be some sort of cheese sauce with chunks of something in it. If you want one, get to your local KFC Philippines ASAP because for some reason, only 50 will be sold each day. Source: Imgur

  • Reminder: American Gladiator-esque Winter Storm Names Are Made Up By The Weather Channel

    No, you’re not crazy. Blizzards did not have names until last year. Especially not ridiculous ones. If you live in the Northeast, this upcoming winter storm is going to render the rest of your week useless. You might have to shovel up to 30 inches of snow off the back tires of your Kia Sorrento before driving into your mailbox then giving up entirely. Winter storm Juno is going to suck. And it’s going to suck even worse because all of a sudden everyone is calling it “winter storm Juno.” Why are we calling it “winter storm Juno,” by the way? Because The Weather Channel decided to start naming blizzards last year. Really. That is the only reason. The Weather Channel says it is naming winter storms because “hashtags are an intrinsic part of social media.” This is not the reason. The reason is that this is a marketing event to gin up interest and scare the bejesus out of people until they watch The Weather Channel. But let’s take them at their word. Maybe “Juno” is an aberration. Maybe their next storm name won’t be bring to mind a Greek god that will pummel and powerhump the Atlantic coastline more »

  • Take Off: 15 Reasons Why You Need To Head To Algarve, Portugal

    Algarve is the premier partying place in Portugal in the summer, but almost unheard of for American tourists. An entire coastline of beautiful beaches and cheap drinks. Algarve (Lagos specifically) has, however been discovered by heavy drinking Brits and Aussies, so if your Portuguese is a little shotty, this might be the English speaking getaway for you. English beaches are shite and Australia’s surrounding natural habitat is constantly trying to kill you. If you’re after a more tranquil atmosphere you can coast up and down Algarve for some of the best fresh seafood and wine you’ve ever had in your life. But you will love the wild atmosphere of Lagos. Rich in history and cheap on drinks, it’s more of a beach-bar scene than Euro nigt club. The cliffside beaches of Praia de Dona Ana will make you feel like you’re in a picturesque movie scene, while the cataplana seafood dishes will have you napping beachside before a big night out.

  • You Can Now Get a Better Fast Food Burger Than In-N-Out in New Jersey

    The long underwhelming history of chain burger joints have left a sour taste in many-a-mouth after years and years of plunging quality around the world, but with a demand for change and healthier product so came the supply. Fast food chains like McDonalds and Burger King are struggling to keep their margins thin, while smaller chains who focus on quality over quantity are making great strides. In no way are we saying a Shake Shack burger, fries and shake are healthy, but compare them to a Big Mac meal and you’ll see and taste a stark difference. Plus this year Shake Shack’s IPO put them at a $1Billion valuation. The people have spoken. The statistics are proof of a shifting demand around the country. Consumer Reports surveyed 32,400 subscribers who ranked 65 restaurants during 96,000 dining experiences across the country. While Shake Shack was curiously left off the list of rated restaurants, McDonald’s, the largest chain in the world, came in dead last in the rankings, only slightly worse off than Burger King. So which Better-Burger joint took the crown this time? Has to be In-n-Out Burger, right? Nope. New Comer Smashburger? Nope. The Habit Burger Grill, operated by The more »

  • Crown Royal Regal Apple Is A Flavored Whiskey Everyone Can Enjoy

    The popularity of whiskey has surged in recent years all across the board. Once the drink of cowboys and old men in suits, men and women imbibers of all ages are now enjoying the water of life. One such reason may be the emergence of flavored whiskeys that serve as an inviting introduction to the spirit. Whereas many distillers dove right in, releasing flavor after flavor in an effort to see what would stick, Crown Royal has taken a more thoughtful approach to introducing flavored varieties. And we are most thankful for that. Crown Royal Regal Apple is only the second flavored whiskey from the Canadian distiller after Crown Royal Maple, which came out over two years ago. Crown Royal has taken their time to perfect Regal Apple and after one sip, it’s clear that their effort was not in vain. Regal Apple is first and foremost a Crown Royal whiskey. It has that velvety smoothness that is tough to beat in it’s entry-level price range.

  • Incredible Restoration Of Historic Brooklyn Movie Theater

    Originally constructed in 1929, Loew’s Kings Theatre in Brooklyn was one of the five flagship “Loew’s Wonder Theatres” in the New York metropolitan area. The 3,676-seat theater, complete with elaborate pipe organ, was built to exhibit both films and vaudeville stage shows, but with the decline of vaudeville, the venue soon focused solely on film. In 1977, Loews donated the pipe organ to New York City venue Town Hall and two years later, Loew’s King Theatre shut its doors. New York City took control of the property in 1979 and over the next several decades, the pristine interior fell into disrepair. In 2010, the city announced a plan to convert the theater into a performing arts hall by 2014. Now, after 38 years, the Kings Theatre is set to open February 3 with a performance by Diana Ross. Three of the other “Wonder Theaters” have been converted into churches while Loew’s Jersey Theatre in Jersey City is open for special events and screenings. If you aren’t able to stop by these incredible theaters in person, check out the photos below and marvel at the filmgoing experience before shopping mall multiplexes.

  • Jim Beam’s New Rye Uses An Old Recipe

    Jim Beam already produces America’s best-selling rye whiskey, but as interest in rye increases, thanks especially to the craft cocktail explosion, the distiller decided it was time to reformulate the iconic brand. But instead of creating some new flavored or infused whiskey, as so often is the case these days, Jim Beam looked to the past. Jim Beam Pre-Prohibition Style Rye is made using one of the Beam family’s oldest recipes to produce a rye whiskey that is bolder, higher proof (90 versus 80), and spicier. The reformulation will impart more of a rye kick when used in cocktails. The new recipe will replace the old Jim Beam Rye along with changing the familiar yellow label to a green label with a more modern look. Jim Beam Pre-Prohibition Style Rye rolls out in the US this month with a suggested retail price of $22.99 for a 750ml bottle.
