Mingle Easy Plates Review

Posted by lukelorick on December 13, 2017 at 11:00 PM Comments comments (0)

When you're out tailgating it's all hands on deck. You need your hands to have fun and enjoy the tailgate, not fumble around with your food and drinks. That's why the Mingle Easy plate was invented.


The Mingle Easy tailgating plates help hold your food and drink all in ONE hand. That is correct: your food and your drink in just one hand. This leaves your other hand open to throw cornhole, play beer pong, high five your buddies or ...

Christmas time is in the air and with that comes relatives, shopping for gifts, and stress! One of the things people are always looking for in December are stocking stuffers. Well the team at Party Flask came up with Santa's Flask to make it that much easier to deal with stress and trying to figure out what to stuff the stocking with.

Santa's Flask is just that, a flask that has a sturdy clip so you can hang it from the mantel and fill it up, just l...

Being the tailgating afficianado that I am, I love to check out a variety of different tailgating venues, outside of just football. Last night, I had the opportunity to attend the Grateful Dead show here in Dallas, TX at American Airlines center. I've never been to see THE DEAD before, but when offered the chance to go, of course I said yes. 

I pulled into the parking garage and there were some people here and there that were tailgating and drin...

Nostalgia Beer Growler Review

Posted by lukelorick on November 26, 2017 at 3:55 PM Comments comments (0)

I have a confession to make: I LOVE BEER. No shocker to those that know me, but sometimes it's nice to get some beer that is more unique than what you find in you local convenience store. A beer growler is the the way to get custom brews poured to take home with you to enjoy when you so choose. The Nostalgia Beer Growler is a BEAST of a growler, as you'll learn soon,as it adds a full CO2 system to the top of the growler.

First off, why is it called ...

ChillBit Review

Warm beer sucks. There I said it. Not that it is a ground breaking statement, but that it was something that could haunt us, if we don't plan correctly. Let's face it there has been a time when all you had was a lukewarm beer that didn't fit in the fridge, or make it in the cooler. Have no fear the ChillBit is here.

The ChillBit is made by the team at SpinChill who love to take warm beer and make it cold..FAST! The ChillBit is a literally a drill bi...

Wine to some is the nectar of the gods, but with one flaw...the wine hangover the following day. What if there was a way minimize the hangover while still enjoying the wine you love so much? Well now there is, with the ULLO, the ullo filters out the hangover inducing sulfites and it also aerates the wine for even better flavor! Win win situation!

I was sent a ULLO for testing purposes and I'll be honest, I'm not a wine drinker, but I have plenty of p...

If you grill then there is a chance that you'll spill, but its ok Tuffy Mat is here so you can chill. The Tuffy Mat is a grilling mat that helps save your patio or deck from getting the stains from oil spills, sauce squirts and greasy meat hitting the ground.

I was sent a Tuffy Mat to check out for myself. The Tuffy Mat comes rolled up in a rectangular box and you have to lay it out and work its shape flat after you unroll it. The Tuffy Mat is made from recycled tires, which is awesome ...

Double Up Can Cooler Review

Posted by lukelorick on November 7, 2017 at 10:10 PM Comments comments (1)

It is common knowledge that TWO is better than ONE for most things in life. That mantra holds true for a koozie too, being able to hold more than one beer is better!

The Double Up koozie does exactly what you think it would do: Holds two beers in one koozie. The neoprene Double Up koozie holds two canned beers and comes in 7 fun colors.

They sent me a few to use and put to the test. I took these Double Up Koozies to a rec...
