I learned more about shaving from pro barber Woody Donahue in two hours than I had in 20-plus years of begrudgingly dragging a razor across my face. Donahue, the official Schick Hydro barber, set up shop at The Carlton Hotel in New York City and gave us the full treatment via hot towel shaves at a showcase event for the new Hydro5 and Edge Shave Gel.
Schick has made a concerted effort to be the most sensitive of razor companies. So sensitive, that in the past I have mused that the Hydro5 has all the sensitivity of a toddler petting a kitten on a pillow with a rainbow in the background, while listening to Richard Marx’s hit power ballad, “Hold Onto the Nights.”
If you’re like me prior to the event, you probably have no idea how great, and how necessary a full shave from a professional is. On top of being surprisingly relaxing (considering a dude has a razor at your jugular), a hot towel treatment at the start gently opens your pores and relaxes your skin.
What says “Christmas” more than the famous Budweiser Clydesdales? The Budweiser Holiday Crate.
To celebrate the 139th holiday season of America’s No. 1 full-flavored lager, Budweiser is bringing back its limited-edition wooden crates. Available in select locations starting November 9, the crates include two pilsner glasses and 18 Budweiser bottles featuring the authentic, classic label from 1933 – the first label following the repeal of Prohibition. Elves sold separately.
Budweiser is releasing 60,000 crates this year (vs. 10,000 in 2014), each of which will be hand-made to mirror the original crates that were distributed by the Budweiser Clydesdales following the end of Prohibition.

To us, no beer pitchman was ever as cool as Keith Stone, patron saint of Keystone Light and role model to many. “Always smooth,” Mr. Stone was never harried in his approach to the ladies, and always had an answer for everything, predicated on smoothness, just like Keystone Light.
How could you not love Keith Stone’s “Smooth Musings?” It still makes me long for the taste of a cool, freshly-cracked, crisp, spot-hitting, proprietary blend of awesome that Mr. Stone has been peddling for years, right now, here in the office.
This winter, Keystone Light has come up with the coolest reason to slam light beer that you’ve never thought of – The Hunt for the Great White Stone. Here’s how it works:
You buy an orange 30-pack of Keystone Light. Each one contains three styles of cans:
1) Standard orange hunting cans
2) Cans featuring white antlers
3) The Great White Stone
What is the Great White Stone? The Great White Stone is an elusive white can with the head of a deer buck on it that’s hiding in select orange packs of Keystone Light.
After you bag a Great White Stone, you can artfully mix your orange hunting cans and cans with white antlers to create your own legendary mount that even Keith Stone would be proud of.
Suddenly, it’s December 1st and people expect things under that tree you erected after Thanksgiving. Christmas morning is just over three weeks away and you didn’t put all that energy into moving your children’s Elf on the Shelf dolls on a nightly/”morningly” basis for the last six month just to screw it up during the stretch run – it’s time to buy stuff for people. Harley-Davidson can help you, you boob.

NJOY, the largest independent e-cigarette and vaping company in the US, has unveiled its newest product, the Daily, a superior e-cigarette scientifically developed to deliver quick-and-strong nicotine satisfaction at levels close to an actual cigarette.
The Daily has been crafted for adult smokers who are familiar with e-cigs but have been largely unsatisfied by the products they’ve tried in the past. The Daily represents NJOY’s mission to make the traditional combustion cigarette obsolete. After testing it out ourselves, we have to give props to NJOY on accomplishing exactly what they set out to do. The Daily exceeded all of our expectations and offers a restored faith in those who have given up on e-cigs.
With its lightweight design and soft tip, the Daily feels like an actual cigarette and should provide a full pack’s worth of smoking from a single, ready-to-use disposable unit. It is easy to transport and even easier to use, particularly in situations where you just want a quick drag or two. The Daily produces a thick vapor and offers a strong yet smooth throat hit that is reminiscent to that of a traditional cigarette.
