Maybe you prefer the taste of a nice Pinot Noir to a PBR– why can’t your friends understand that? Despite your lectures to them on the joys of properly fermented grapes, they scoff at you whenever you lift a fancy glass as they chug brewskies through red cups. Fool them and drink what you want with Union Wine Company’s wine in a can. We’re talking 12 ounces of Underwood Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, with grapes grown in Oregon, concealed perfectly in a tin can. Stealth class beats no class at all.

The Ford Mustang has turned 50, and it’s decided to whip em out for its birthday bash. Not much yet is known about the Convertible, but we do know its soft top roof lowers in 15 seconds. The 2015 Mustang is making headlines for being the first model in the car’s history to be offered for sale globally– so yes, technically, you could be in Tanzania challenging cheetahs to races. We’ll put our money on the 3.7-liter V6 (pegged by Ford as being capable of “at least” 300 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque) or 5.0-liter V8.

I’ll tell ya how Ron Burgundy would prepare for the upcoming release of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues–by getting hammered. Totally balls-to-the-wall boozing it for weeks. Now, Ron may not be real (though it’s hard to tell lately), but Ron Burgundy Scotch Whisky/Great Odin’s Raven Special Reserve is quite legit. His dream can be your reality. This “Scotchy Scotch Scotch” from Riviera Imports is an 80 proof blend of grain and malt Scotch whiskies from Speyside, Highlands and Islay and you’ll probably be playing the flute like a madman by your 3rd shot.

If rappers really loved their hometowns, they’d do more than ‘rep their hoods’ with brief shout-outs in their songs… they’d rep their hoods with wood! Graphic designer Aymie Spitzer has created Neighborwoods, laser-etched, cedar wood, geography wall art that beautifully celebrates the place where you stay… or grew up… or wish you stayed, as is the case with most people in Idaho. Each handmade map is unique, and the cedar wood even brings with it an enticing woodsy aroma. And Brooklyn could use a little of that, actually.

Here it is, Brazuca, the official match ball of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Adidas has put a lot of TLC into this one (like nearly three years worth with more than 600 players taking it for a test kick), and they say it delivers superior stability, grip, and even improved aerodynamics. The colors and ribbons are said to reflect the bracelets Brazilians wear, but we favor another outfit often seen on that country’s women. You’re gonna wanna scroll down to #3.

Already a hit for iOS users, the VSCO Cam photography app is now ready for Android peeps to get creative with. (Note: Flexing in the bathroom remains uncreative.) Photo editing isn’t always an easy task, so it’s no wonder that VSCO’s user-friendly interface has been a hit, even if it belies the depth of the processing power under the hood. It’s free, available for most devices running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher, and includes 10 presets and some editing tools, while more are available to purchase.

Any day now Bruce Springsteen is gonna totally write a song about the (partial) shutdown of the Sriracha plant and the plight of its workers– “Times are hard, my future’s lookin’ dicey, Mary Jo’s wonderin’ if we’ll ever make eggs spi-cy (again)”… Better stock up now on all things Sriracha, including this UV Sriracha Vodka ($12). Infused with a zesty mix of chili peppers, garlic and Sri magic, this tonic can surely give your next Bloody Mary a real kick– and a reason for Mary Jo to forge on.
