Absolut iPad App - Drinkspiration →
As new iPad owner, I have been searching all over for cool apps. As a alcoholic conoisseur of fine cocktails and adult beverages, I stumbled across this app. As predicted, all the recipes use Absolut Vodka, but its a pretty app and gives you some good vodka cocktails so you dont have to just make vodka and crans at home. -Jdrama
Just remembered I been riding around with an Ikea end table in my trunk that I had planned to put a screen in. Hmmmm - Jdrama

Homemade Strawberry Infused Vodka
This is a little project I read about awhile back and always wanted to give a try. Figured now was as good a time as any other. Ingredients: - 1 Handle (1.75L) of decent vodka. Doesn’t have to be top shelf, but if it tastes like death, infusing it with Strawberries will just make strawberry death. 4lbs of fresh strawberries. Glass container big enough to hold all the strawberries and...

Korean BBQ Adventure!
Here in NYC, the snow, cold and excessive dreariness can make you seriously consider jumping off of something high. So in an effort to beat the cold (and creeping depression), a few friends and I set out to try different restaurants around NYC. Prior to this weekend, I’ll admit we were 0-2, but thank goodness, this week we happened upon something noteworthy. Dons Bogam is located on E....
After making a pretty sweet addition to my *ahem* “Home Theatre” this week (post coming soon) I found myself in need of a few HDMI cords. I went straight to monoprice, then I remembered that all my friends might not know about this wonderful place. Unless your running cable through the wall, over crazy long distances, or just need the cord RIGHT NOW, there is pretty much NO reason to...

Crawfish & Crab Cakes
I absolutely LOVE crab cakes whenever I’m out, so I figured I’d take a shot at making them at home. In typical fashion I had to add a little something extra, hence the Crawfish, for a little New Orleans flair. They were easy to make, relatively cheap (the biggest cost is the seafood which changes all the time), and super tasty, so I think these will be added to my list of items I...
