  • America’s Obsession With Wine, By The Numbers [Infographic]

    Five decades after author Ernest Hemingway’s death, Americans are enjoying and appreciating wine in ever-growing numbers. In fact, the U.S. now ranks as the No. 1 wine-drinking market in the world, with American wine sales hitting a record in 2012. Wine shipments to the U.S. have climbed nearly 50 percent since 2001, wine industry consultant Jon Fredrikson said, “and it is likely that American consumption will continue to expand over the next decade as wine continues to gain traction among American adult consumers.” He added: “The amazing diversity of choices and exciting new offerings are attracting new consumers and boosting consumption.” Here, SpareFoot serves up an infographic that offers an overview of wine offerings and consumption in the U.S. We’ve got to imagine that Ernest Hemingway—who who was anything but a teetotaler – would raise a glass to these statistics.

  • What’s that Buzzing? The Return of Cicadas (HQ Photos, Time Lapse & Infographic)

    Cicadas. Everywhere. If you’re located in a Cicada zone, you already know this. Some people find it hard to hear the male’s mating call (known as a “Chorus”). If cup your ears and pay attention, if it is warm out it sounds like a tea pot whistling in the distance. The 30 billion will make their 17-year appearance when the ground 8″ down is a steady 64° F ranging from Connecticut to Georgia. Hate them or love them, their time here above ground is short. We are about 6 weeks away from not seeing Cicadas for another 17 years.  In 2030 the off spring from this brood will come back and repeat the cycle – think about how much will have changed. In 1996, the last time cicadas made their way above ground, most families in the country didn’t have internet and Justin Beiber was two years old, too young to badger our quiet streets with speeding sports cars and whiney rants about being taken seriously. Warning: NSFSqueamish.

  • Flying from Mt. Everest In The World’s Highest BASE Jump

    Nearly 60 years to the day after the first ascent up Mount Everest, Russian extreme sport star Valery Rozov flew off the north face of Mount Everest – the world’s highest BASE jump ever – 23,688ft above sea level. The ascent began on the Chinese side on the famous north route. It took him four days to climb from the base camp to the jumping location. At precisely 2:30 p.m. local time he leaped despite adverse weather conditions with temperatures -0.4 fahrenheit. Because the cliff at the top was not very high, the initial moments of the leap in the rarified high altitude air were the most critical phase. Rozov needed more time than usual in the thin air to transition from freefall to flying. After that he flew for nearly a full minute at speeds of about 200 km/h (125 mph) along the north face before he landed safely on the Rongbuk glacier – at an altitude of 5,950 meters.

  • 29 NJ Bars Busted For Swapping Cheap Booze for Premium-brand Liquor

    At one bar, a mixture that included rubbing alcohol and caramel coloring was sold as scotch. In another, premium liquor bottles were refilled with water — and apparently not even clean water at that. State officials provided those new details Thursday on raids they conducted a day earlier as part of a yearlong investigation dubbed Operation Swill. Twenty-nine New Jersey bars and restaurants, including 13 TGI Fridays, were accused of substituting cheap booze — or worse — for the good stuff while charging premium prices. As part of Operation Swill, investigators collected 1,000 open bottles of vodka, gin, rum, scotch, whiskey and tequila from the wells of the bars, state Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa said. “This alleged scheme is a dishonest ruse to increase profits and is a slap in the face of the consumer,” Chiesa said.
