A Toast (and a Shot) to Atari

Atari Arcade Pint Glass 4 Pack

Inspired by a recent Nerd Approved post, I felt it necessary to coordinate my drinkware with retro video game art. Most important when updating a drinkware collection is the necessity to acquire glasses for any occasion, from a black tie affair, for which this Atari Black Pint Glass 4 Pack would be appropriate, to everyday use such as the pint glasses in the Atari Arcade Pint Glass 4 Pack would provide. Of course, no evening would be complete without the Atari Shot Glass 6 Pack.

And it should go without saying, coffee in the morning is necessary to wash the shame away. Only one coffee cup in the world would suffice: Atari “You Never Forget Your First” Coffee Mug.

What better way to celebrate Atari than by putting them in a gallery…

Where’s the beef? Leave a message.

Cow Chalkboard

Clara Peller may have left the building, but before she left she made sure we all got the message by asking, “Where’s the beef?” in her raspy, distinct voice. Television commercials were her medium, but the rest of us have to rely on a more old-fashioned approach (or YouTube, I suppose).

Wine trolley keeps the drinks rolling

Oenophilia Kitchen Wine Trolley

Sure, you could pick up a kitchen island to complete the needed work area for your undersized kitchen. Yes, you could put a premium on counter space and pick up a handy island, ending all your veggie-chopping, dough-rolling worries. Certainly it would make the task of cooking easier… Or you could accomplish all that and more.

The Oenophilia Kitchen Wine Trolley doesn’t offer a lot in the way of a work area, as it measures about 16-inches by 20-inches (it stands 32.5-inches tall). But, what it lacks up on top, it makes up for on bottom. Built to house six glasses and twelve bottles of wine, this wine rack on wheels may not help much when it comes to the prep work, but when it comes to the after dinner drinks, it will keep the party rolling.

Space pancakes in space

Outer Space Pancake Molds

The nascent space tourism industry needs to get a few things straight before it really gets off the ground. First, lower the prices. Second do breakfast right. Earthbound hotels often offer a ‘continental breakfast’ consisting of coffee or tea, fruit, and a baked roll or pastry of some sort. We can do better. We can give a little something extra. We can have ‘extra-continental’.

Seeing as anyone staying at a space hotel would be off of all the continents, it would make sense to go the extra mile. Like free pancakes included with the morning meal. And of course, they have to be space pancakes. These NASA-designed inspired Outer Space Pancake Molds would do quite nicely. I’ll even bring them right over. Just send a ship, please.

Moon bounce for your beer

Inflatable Serving Bar

Beverages don’t tend to do too well in bouncy situations, but that doesn’t mean a cushion of air cannot provide a relaxing cloud-like bed for them to lounge in. Just don’t bounce in it. As tempting as though it may be, this raft-like Inflatable Serving Bar is probably too small for the average adult to get a good bounce on. And that’s who is going to be using this of course: adults for their adult beverages. Because nothing says class like having a big boatload of beer chilling in an inflatable raft. (And the kids would just throw thing in the pool).

Abracadabra! You may now drink your beer!

UTILO Deluxe Bottle Opener with Black Handle by Blomus

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. – Clarke’s Third Law

Of course, you are not going to be fooling anyone if you don’t have a magic wand. Everybody knows that magic requires a magic wand. That’s like Magic’s First Law. But in a pinch, a thing that looks like a magic wand will do. Especially when faced with a case of beer.

The UTILO Deluxe Bottle Opener with Black Handle by Blomus is a uniquely styled bottle opener. Similar in styling to a classic magic wand, the bottle opener may not fool anyone into believing you magically opened the beer, but open enough of ‘em and they just might.
