in Food and Drink by James Hills
Men's fashion is in vogue these days and top brands are looking to associate themselves more and more with this emerging market. The folks over at BACARDI and Grey Goose even created some recipes inspired by what they saw on the runways and we think they sound delicious! These are two of the cocktails that were served earlier this month at the Men's New York Fashion Week.

Kia Racing - Driving Great Causes Forward ...

in Stuff by James Hills
This weekend while watching NASCAR it's hard to miss the overt commercialism of the sport, with logos on almost every square inch of space where a camera just might pan to during the race. That's true for the World Challenge Racing League that Kia competes in too, but instead of blasting Kia logos and oil companies all over, Kia and the team owners decided to do something special and focus on…

Sometimes The Only Way to Try Something New is to Surprise Yourself

in Food and Drink by James Hills
I enjoy fresh produce - honestly I do, but as I have gotten older I have started to fall into a rut. I buy the same peppers, the same cucumbers, the same lettuce and I'm pretty happy. For several years now, I had heard about CSA programs (community supported agriculture) for a while now but never did anything. Essentially how these programs work is that you sign up for a weekly delivery of…

The LARK - Bozeman Boutique Hotel and Montana Adventure Basecamp!

in Mancation Blog by James Hills
When most people think of Montana it's most likely a picture of a tent or lodge that probably pops into mind, so I was shocked when I got word about this chic modern hotel located in Bozeman that would be the perfect home base for an awesome guys weekend or mancation without worrying about losing the fun of having running water and cable :)

Don't Just "Find" the Perfect Wine - Go and Make It!

Last year, Columbia Crest opened it's doors and invite the community to help create their new vintage, the 2014 Crowdsourced Cabernet. This year, they are taking it to the next level with a contest to hire a "Crowdsourced Cabernet E.C.O.". Honestly, this is pretty big thing for what otherwise is an…

What's On Tap At Lakefront Brewery?

When planning a guys weekend in Milwaukee, one thing that is likely at the top of your list is to visit a brewery. While most people will assume that means a stop at Miller, there are some incredible craft breweries here in town as well. The one we picked to visit during our Kia TurboCharged…

A Sweet Place to Visit in Milwaukee: Leon's Frozen Custard

No visit to Milwaukee is complete without a stop at Leon's Frozen Custard located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin - just outside of Milwaukee! Since 1947 they have been a center of the community and you'll see rich, poor, English-speaking, and non. This is a place that people come to, united by one thing ...…

OMG! 11 Cheese, Jalapeno, Bacon, Hot Dog Mac and Cheese Recipe

The trouble with going to other people's BBQs is that you can't be "King of the Grill" since it's their domain, but that doesn't mean you can't be king of the table and win bragging rights by having the biggest, baddest dish that everyone will be talking about next week at the office. Sure, anyone…

Setting a Pace - the 500, NASCAR and Z06

in Stuff
The Indianapolis 500 has been run 99 times in the past 104 years. Beginning with the very first Indianapolis 500 in 1911 a pace car has led the field to the green flag. During the previous 98 races there have been some odd, improbable and just plain goofy vehicles selected or modified to lead the…

This weekend while watching NASCAR it's hard to miss the overt commercialism of the sport, with logos on almost every square inch of space where a camera just might pan to during the race. That's true for the World Challenge Racing League that Kia competes in too, but instead of blasting Kia logos and oil companies all over, Kia and the team owners decided to do something special and focus on promoting two very important and awesome charities - B.R.A.K.E.S. and DonorsChoose.org. Sure, there's a Kia logo on the side, but these cars are referred to as the No. 36 DonorsChoose.org Optima turbo and the No. 38 B.R.A.K.E.S. Optima turbo.

That says something about the company when they lead by promoting two amazing charities rather than focusing just on their own brand, and I found that refreshing.

Every so often a car launch event happens that surprises you and this was one of them. Honestly, the Hyundai Tucson is was not at the top of my list when it comes to cars I dreamed of driving. Sure, I LOVE it's big brothers - the Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport - but the idea of a smaller version initially made me think of less power, less space, and less fun. However, the trip was to Minneapolis, I love Hyundai, and all my friends were going ... so why not! What I discovered was that while it's true that this car has less power, less space, and less cost - it's big on fun, style, and completely capable of doing everything you need.
