COOL THING WE WANT #467 | Circular Ping Pong Table For Fun, Crazy Multiplayer Rallies

(via) Until very recently, we had a ping pong table in the Scout office. We had to lose it because it took up too much space, but in a perfect world, we'd have several of them or, better yet, something along the lines of this circular table envisioned by Singapore-based artist Lee Wen. There's just something so delightfully Dr. Seuss-ish about it: "Oh, the places you'll go! There is fun to be done! There are points to be scored. There are games to be won. And the magical things you… more

AWESOME THING WE DRANK #688 | Sons Of Vancouver’s Super Delicious No. 82 Amaretto

Photo: Katie Huisman We drank plenty of interesting craft spirits at BC Distilled last month, but the big takeaway for us was Sons Of Vancouver's superb No. 82 Amaretto. Made with vanilla beans, apricot kernels, and local blackberry honey, it's shockingly complex, long-lingering, easy-sipping (26% ABV), and not the least bit saccharine in its honey-nutty sweetness. On its origins, one of the "sons" in Sons Of Vancouver, James Lester, explained that he and partner Richard Klaus "were… more
