So much wine, so little time. Instead of downing a bottle every few days (although that sounds quite fun), order up a Wineist subscription box. For roughly $14 a month, you get a box of five 187ml bottles or six 50ml bottles. Their wine curators choose a monthly theme and then procure the wines that fit those themes. They’ll also provide an instruction kit for tasting and information on the wine’s tasting notes. Waaay better than drinking wine from a box.

Subscription Meat Service Brings Boxes Of Meat To Your Doorstep
Culture By on May 6, 2014
Come home to the missus, the dog and a large box of beef on the doorstep. AgLocal started off as a cooperation between farmers and Michelin chefs to meet and get a better understanding of the meats the chefs were using. Now, they want the consumer market. Meat on everyone’s doorstep! For $85-100 (about 4-5 pounds or 8-10 pounds), buyers get a box of meat from 4 different categories: “Family Style” for the home, “Grill Master” for bbqing, “Fit and Lean” for those wanting grass-fed and lean cuts of meat and “Farmer’s Pick” for offals and unusual cuts.
Each box also contains recipes and details on how the animals were raised. While it’s an iffy prospect having meat hanging out on someone’s front porch all afternoon, it could be great for those foodies out there.

Mantry: It’s My Snack In A Box
Culture By on Apr 24, 2013
Just when it was finally becoming mainstream for men to get into cooking, some jerk coined the term “foodie” and scared away 74.8% of the heterosexuals. None of us wanna be called that ridiculous term, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want top-shelf eats in our iceboxes. Mantry is a food-of-the-month club that makes grub-loving cool again by delivering a batch of random artisanal foods to your doorstep in a sexy handmade wooden crate. For $75 a month you receive edible gems like BBQ sauce brewed in Alabama, bison jerky out of Montana, and hand-harvested birch syrup from snowy Alaska. Eat it. Just eat it.
