This NHL Arena Melted Its Ice So You Can Drink Its Rink


When the Nassau Coliseum announced it was closing down, New York Islanders fans were naturally disappointed. However, in an impressive gesture to help life-long fans cope with the loss, the ice from the final hockey game at Nassau was melted down and packaged in $20 bottles.

Because what’s $20 bucks compared to a lifetime of memories? The keepsake, while pricey, gave fans of the 43-year-old stadium something to hold on to as the Islanders move on to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The bottles were sold through the Islander’s team site.

Unsurprisingly enough, every single drop of the stadium juice has already sold out to dedicated fans. This definitely doesn’t mean the end though. Chances are, we’ll probably see those water bottles popping up on eBay and sports memorabilia sites for fives times the original price.

Here’s How to Put Alcohol Into Sealed Water Bottles [VIDEO]

Summer season is upon us, and for millions of our fellow alcoholics out there, we’re going to assume you’ll be smuggling vodka in water bottles to pretty much every event you’re going to.

Whether it’s a cruise or a funeral, you don’t want pesky security sniffing out your containers — so here’s your summer crash course on getting alcohol into sealed water bottles.

You’ll need pliers, a flathead screw driver, a knife, a funnel, boiling hot water, and as many water bottles as you want to fill with your choice of vodka. If you’re looking for a darker alcohol, consider sealed Iced Tea bottles as a fitting substitute.

Enjoy the tutorial, and it goes without saying, rage responsibly:


Evian Water — Star Wars Edition

Evian water and Star Wars in the same sentence? Yes.

Designed by Amanda Brencys Carbonato and created in 3D by Diego Fonseca, these glass water bottles are shaped to look like the butt of of a lightsaber. Obviously the sexy chic silhouette of the bottles is a sight to behold, but what’s even more intriguing is the exquisite art direction and illustration on every bottle.

Something about the gold C-3PO bottle with the googley-eyed robot from Star Wars in cartoon form that puts a smile on my face. No word on these actually making a retail run just yet, but we’d be willing to plunk down a pretty penny or two on them if they ever became available.

Star Wars fans, rejoice? Water fans? Umm…..

Aperture Water Bottles

Hydrate yourself with technology provided from Aperture Laboratories! Okay, it’s not a portal gun that will teleport you to the other side of a room with a pitfall in the middle of it, but it’s nice to see something from the Portal video game make an appearance in the real world. Each glass bottle holds 18 oz of fluid and is the perfect gift for any one who appreciates the mind-bending amalgamation of awesome that is the Portal video game series. ($15 @ ThinkGeek)
