  • Man Cave: Whiskey Lockers

    Man Cave / May 22, 2015 / No Comments.

    Whiskey Locker

    No, we’re not talking about your high school gym locker. You’ve probably heard of wine lockers—where fans of the vino stash their favorite high priced wines in restaurants and bars around the country. Now, whiskey drinkers can get in on the action. Certain bars across the country are offering lockers where patrons can store their favorite whiskey (and other liquors) for future visits. Steak & Whisky in Hermosa Beach, CA has a steep price tag of $500 for a year long rental, but if you buy $500 worth of liquor and wine, it’s 40% off. Not only can you have your personal favorites ready for you every time you dine, but you can also treat your friends when you can’t make it and take advantage of purchasing rare whiskies and cognacs at 40% off the retail price.

    Whether you’re a partygoer, sports fan, or just the average radio listener the words “Red Solo Cup” will render a similar mental image amongst those alike. The cup has revolutionized drinking in the past decade, becoming an American cultural symbol and representing the social life of college students and “twenty somethings.” The Red Solo Cup began gaining social presence when photo sharing and social media sites like Facebook and Myspace (which seems like ancient history) took off in the early 2000s. People started posting pictures of themselves with friends while holding their solo cup firmly in hand—a clear indication of drinking and party fun. Want proof? Just check out your friend’s Instagram feed, which most like features one picture with solo cups scattered around the kitchen counter of a house party, in classic beer pong formation, or held up with pride at a tailgate.

    It used to be that you’d only buy a bottle of wine with a screw top because you were a cheap party-hopper and didn’t want to risk spilling a drop between gulps. Lucky for you times have changed.
