Giant Handbag Flask Lets You Smuggle More Than a Fifth of Booze

handbag-flask

Take it from a female, most handbags are way too big for what we put in there. A small clutch is perfectly adequate for sunglasses, cell phones, and wallets, so unless you’re lugging around a bowling ball, is there really any reason to carry a bowling ball-sized bag?

Well, here’s a satchel that actually makes use of all the extra space: the Bev-Bag Secret Handbag Flask. From the folks who previously brought us the hairbrush flask is this new, monstrous purse that also holds 28 ounces (or a little larger than a fifth) of booze. $36 buys you the mildly stylish, black leather drink smuggling vehicle, plus the benefit of not having to spend $12 on craft cocktails or $8 on craft beers anywhere.

Although, as one Geekologie reader pointed out, at this size, you really might as well just bring the whole bottle.

[FOOD HACK] The Only Way You Should Ever Open a Bag of Chips

how-to-open-bag-of-chips

How many of you are tasked with the daily struggle of opening a bag of chips? From accidentally ripping the entire bag apart, slinging chips all over a room, to making a slit too large down the side (thus making it impossible to close), the perfect way to open a crinkly air-tight pouch has alluded us for far too long. That is, until now.

We stumbled upon this genius video of  a young man demonstrating the perfect way to open a bag of chips.

Watch as he uses his teeth to rip the dead center of the bag, followed by a move that’s reminiscent of peeling an orange, but with cellophane. The end result? A perfect circular opening, welcoming for any hand trying to scoop up a chip. With over 1 million hits on this video, we hope this leads to a new trend in chip opening. Try this at your next party or at work in the break room, we guarantee your friends will be hooting and hollering just like his.

Picnic Backpack Guarantees First Date Success

picnic-backpack

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s about damn time we stepped our first date game up. Dinner at your go-to Italian restaurant isn’t going to make her swoon and watching Fast and the Furious 273 isn’t going to make him tumble head over heels.

No, it’s time to take things to the next level with the Picnic Backpack.

The canvas pack comes decked out with plates, goblets, utensils, cloth napkins, and a cozy blanket for you and your date to cuddle under. There’s a detachable wine cooler on the side for pinot noir or some bubbly, plus a large insulated compartment to keep your food cool.

Of course, the impressive part comes in the attention to detail, as the backpack also includes salt and pepper shakers, a wooden cutting board and a corkscrew (which you know how elusive those can be).

So, next time you’re trying to impress, invite your date to a modern-day picnic. Break out the wine and cheese plates, then follow it up with a steak dinner while soaking in Mother Nature. Might as well do it proper the first time around.

_______

As you can see, we got ours personalized. Swag.
