ESPN’s Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit hinted at the possibility of Helton returning during their broadcast of the USC-Notre Dame game on Saturday night.USC would reportedly have to give Helton a gigantic buyout if the Trojans were to fire him, too, and giving him at least one more season would bring that number down.Still, there will be plenty of USC fans upset with the decision to bring Helton back. Several top boosters had reportedly been pressuring the Trojans to make a change.last_img read more

For the 9-5 guy who prefers to leave his grooming needs in the hands of a professional, getting a haircut usually means spending a lunch hour or a precious weekend afternoon planted in the barber chair. Until now.A new app called Shortcut makes summoning a talented barber to your home, office, or hotel as easy as ordering an Uber. Shortcut is the brainchild of three friends, Irvin Slobodskaya, Will Newton and Jeff Umansky, and born out of personal necessity. “I had grown frustrated by the fact that often times my busy schedule prohibited me from getting an appointment at my favorite barbershops, especially when I really needed a cut quickly and I didn’t have time to plan ahead,” says Slobodskaya. “After talking to friends, family and colleagues, I realized there was a void in the market and that’s how it began.” So the trio made it way more convenient to get a trim: Simply complete a brief profile and a barber, picked based on your needs and location, will be delivered to your door like a pizza for slightly more dough ($75 to be exact). And this can all be done between the hours of 8am and midnight.Suddenly, you have no excuse for looking like Shaggy. Unless, you happen to live outside of New York City, which is the only city currently serviced by the app (though other locales are in the founders’ sights). Order up, New Yorkers!last_img read more

2Bar’s Small-Barrel Bourbon Tastes Like a 12-Year After Just a Few Months

first_img The Best American Liqueur The Manual Spirit Awards 2019: The Best Craft Liquor Made in America Getting to Know Rhum Agricole, Rum’s Grassy Sibling Swill is our bi-monthly column dedicated to liquor, wine, beer, and every other delicious dram that falls under the broader umbrella of booze. But it’s more than just tasting notes scribbled on a cocktail napkin — Swill is about getting outside of your comfort zone, trying new things, and exploring the big, wide world of libations. One week you might catch us halfway through a bottle of single-malt scotch, and the week after that we might be buzzing on some Ugandan moonshine made from bananas. This column is just one big boozy adventure, so grab yourself a glass and join us for another round.Ever have one of those awkward moments where you think she’s 18, but come to find out she’s waaay younger? I mean, I’m usually a pretty good at judging age, but a couple weekends ago I experienced this exact situation — with a bottle of bourbon whiskey.I was at a trade show for Northwestern distillers, at a booth for a distillery called 2Bar Spirits. After a first sip that left me feeling weak in the knees, I asked the guy behind the counter how long it was aged for. His reply? Thirteen months.I almost spit out my drink. Here I was, getting all googly-eyed over a glass of hooch that tasted old enough to vote, and this guy tells me it’s just barely over a year old. My mind was blown. What kind of black magic was this?Turns out, it wasn’t black magic at all; it was just 2Bar’s unorthodox aging process. Not only do these guys mash, ferment, and distill their booze from the ground up using locally-grown grains; they also age it in smaller barrels — just 15 gallons instead of the usual 55 gallon variety that most distillers use.What’s the advantage of aging in smaller casks? Well, aside from the fact that you can carry more of ’em on a forklift, smaller-volume barrels tend to speed up the aging process and help the booze develop flavors an accelerated rate. The reason bourbon makers leave their elixir in barrels for 8 to 12 years is because when you’re aging 55-gallons of whiskey, it takes a long time for the booze to extract tannins and vanillins from the charred oak. With a smaller barrel though, you get a higher surface-area-to-liquor ratio, so the chemical reactions needed to mellow the alcohol and develop the flavor profile occur more rapidly. Therefore, all those wonderful oaky flavors that would take years to achieve in a full-size 55-gallon barrel can be achieved in just a few months.Now to be fair, 2Bar isn’t the only distillery that does this — but in my humble opinion they’re doing it better than a lot of distilleries that are decades older. The company is barely two years old, and already they’re making some of the best young bourbon I’ve had in recent memory. I can’t wait to see what they’re producing a few years from now.Go find yourself a bottle. Immediately. You’ll be blown away. What is Bourbon?

Our Neighbors to the North: Beard Care Products from Les Industries Groom

first_img How to Grow a Beard: It’s Not Just a Look, It’s a Philosophy How to Grow and Maintain Stubble There comes a point in every bewhiskered man’s life when the stubble goes scraggly, the itch sets in, and a lack of grooming and trimming morphs into a full-on facial hair fracas. When confronted with this dilemma, most men are content to throw in the towel and reach for the razor, but with the right beard care products, you can take your scraggly face from shaggy to stylish.Related: A Beginner’s Guide to Beard GroomingStarted in 2013 by three friends in Montreal, Les Industries Groom, is a Quebecois company focused on producing high-quality, all-natural, hand-made grooming and beard care products for today’s whiskered gentlemen. With so many unpronounceable ingredients in the mostly unregulated big-name grooming market, the guys at Groom decided to buck that trend and instead went with what they know—and what they know is natural.Groom is dedicated to using no artificial scents, coloring-agents, parabens, or petroleum-derived products. The company makes all of their offerings “in small batches to guarantee freshness and quality,” says co-founder Julien Blanchard. “We approach our products with a clear mind, free of the dogmas of the cosmetic world. We take the time to find effective alternatives to parabens, petroleum and silicon, with no compromise on the performance or quality of the products. Some of our essential oils are also harvested from local species of evergreen and our beeswax also comes from a local producer.”We reviewed Les Industries Groom’s full line of natural beard care products, including their beard wash, beard oils, and beard balm. Here are our thoughts.Beard WashYou wouldn’t use bar soap on your hair, so why are you using shampoo on your beard? Shampoos are often harsh, with chemical agents used to strip oil from the hair and the skin, leaving both dry and dull. Lathering up with a squirt of Suave is also not the best method for taming your beard tangles. Instead, look to a wash specifically geared toward your facial hair.Groom’s beard wash combines the conditioning properties of natural essential oils such as pine needle oil, juniper berry oil, and cedar-wood oil, with the cooling effect of menthol for a refreshing, nourishing, and invigorating wash. We loved this wash for its minty-morning wake-up factor and its post-wash, absolutely clean feeling. Slip this beard wash into your morning shower routine and you’ll be smelling woodsy, feeling spry, and looking sly, all before seven o’clock.$25 CAD for 250 mlBeard OilIt is a law of nature that, at a certain point, your beard will begin to itch, and not just a little. So, to save yourself all that scratching, opt instead for a few drops of beard oil. Used to moisturize and condition not only your beard, but also the skin underneath, beard oils are an essential tool in any man’s grooming vanguard. After cleansing, simply rub a few drops between your hands and massage thoroughly into your beard. The oils will tame any unruly flyaway whiskers and the scented essential oils will leave you feeling energized.Original ScentGroom’s original-scented beard oil is a fragrant bouquet of pine, bergamot, and lavender, and contains a nourishing base of argan, jojoba, coconut, macadamia, and hempseed oils. Sourced locally from a small producer that makes hemp products of exceptional quality for both cosmetics and culinary purposes, Groom’s hempseed oil is used for its outstanding properties when applied to both skin and hair. Blanchard notes, “It’s a dry oil (leaving no greasiness) that helps to nourish and moisturize, while also being quickly absorbed by the hair and skin. Although it does have a pleasant nutty aroma, it doesn’t impact much on the fragrance.”Tobacco ScentWe were a little skeptical to take this beard oil for a spin due to it’s tobacco inspired scent, but boy were we wrong. As Blanchard puts it, “The tobacco beard oil does regularly raise eyebrows just with the name of the fragrance; but to be fair, the scent is composed of 12 essential oils, among which you will find sandalwood, spikenard, pepper, vanilla and aniseed, to name but a few.” With a husky aroma and non-greasy formula, Groom’s tobacco scented beard oil is perfect for an occasion where you want to make a well-groomed and aromatic impression.Les Industries Groom’s Beard Oils come in a 30 or 60ml classy amber-glass bottle with an integrated glass dropper.$28 CAD for 30 mlBeard BalmMuch like a beard oil, a beard balm is meant to moisturize, nourish, and tame your facial hair, but with one extra feature: protection from the elements. Made with shea butter, hempseed oil, coconut oil and locally sourced beesewax, Groom’s beard balm is an excellent addition to your winter hair care routine. Not only does it provide a protective coating for your facial hair, but shea butter and coconut oil also soften while they condition. The balm, however, is extremely thick and sticky, so a little goes a long way. And be sure to do as the directions instruct and warm a tiny amount with the heat of your hands before applying liberally to your beard–otherwise you’ll just look waxy. With a woody, citrusy scent, highlighted by notes of natural beeswax, this beard balm smells as luxurious as our beard will feel.$25 CAD for 60mlThe TakeawayWe have to give props to Groom for their devotion to all-natural beard care products. They are an excellent example of what we can expect from cosmetic lines in the future. Lacking harsh chemicals, solvents, and scents, this beard care line can be used daily without the worry of drying or dermatological reactions. With locally sourced, natural, good-for-you ingredients, be sure to make space in your shave kit for our friendly neighbors from the north, Les Industries Groom.Les Industries Groom products are prepared, tested, and produced in Montreal, Canada.

Shore Thing: 10 Beach Essentials Every Guy Needs

first_imgChanneyIsn’t summer just the best? As things keep warming up, like many people, we’re headed straight for the beach. Nothing is better than sand and sun, but it’s easy to get bogged down with too much gear. How can you pack everything you need without spending half your beach day making trips back to the car? Here are our top ten beach essentials for keeping things clean and concise without sacrificing fun.A Quality TowelDock & Bay Microfiber Beach Towels – $24As far as beach towels go, the best come down to three things: size, softness, and ease of cleaning. Dock & Bay’s beach towels tackle all three and manage to squeeze eye-catching designs into the mix as well. They’re made with smooth microfiber, so they repel sand and dry three times faster than cotton. They’re available in multiple sizes, including an XL that’s just right for spreading out on the sand, and they come with a compact carrying case for easy travel. We especially love the Festival collection.See ItKeep Your CoolClevermade Collapsible Cooler – $30You can hardly spend a day under the summer sun without ice-cold refreshments, so you’re gonna need a cooler. This design from Clevermade holds true to its branding: in addition to holding up to 50 cans of choice beverage (plus ice), it collapses flat for easy storage. Its leak-proof interior will keep drinks cold for up to 36 hours, and the material quickly wipes clean when you’re ready to tuck it away. Not into this one? There are plenty out there to choose from.See ItFun in the SunBocce Ball Set – $40Bocce is a classic beach game. It’s easy to learn, extremely portable, and lends itself perfectly to a sandy playing field. This set is simple, well-crafted, and comes with everything you need to enjoy the game – including a zip-up carrying case for easy transport.See ItBucketBall Beach Edition – $50In case you’ve never heard of BucketBall, here’s a rundown: it’s basically a giant, beach-friendly version of everyone’s favorite college classic, Beer Pong. Instead of solo cups, your targets in BucketBall are, unsurprisingly, large buckets. This set comes with 12 buckets, two game balls, a handy tote bag, and instructions on how to play (ha! As if you’ll need those!). Much like its tabletop counterpart, the game is surprisingly fun given its simple concept. Heck, it’s enjoyable even if you don’t use it as a means for getting drunk by the ocean. Plus, you can buy fun accessories, including floating bucket racks so you set them up in water.See ItHouse of Marley Chant Sport BT – $80House of Marley is dedicated to two things: superb sound quality and responsible products. Everything they make is constructed of sustainable materials, including this handsome Bluetooth speaker. Its waterproof and dust-resistant design make it a perfect beach day companion. It includes an attached carabiner clip for easy portability, and its shape and size are designed so it will fit conveniently into most cup holders. With 8 hours of playtime, you can enjoy your favorite summer jams all day long – and feel good about protecting the planet at the same time.See ItBeach BagOdyseaCo XXL Mesh Beach Bag – $29Ya gotta get all these beach treasures out to the sand somehow and we’d recommend doing so with OdyseaCo’s XXL Mesh Beach bag. For starters, it’s absolutely massive (24” x 18” x 08”) so it’ll fit just about anything you want to stuff in there. It also includes 7 large exterior pockets for essentials like sunscreen and flip-flops, with one interior pocket made with waterproof fabric and a hidden zipper to keep your electronics and other valuables safe. The base is waterproof, too, so no need to worry if the surf sweeps around it as the tide rolls in. An interior carabiner clip will save you the headache of digging for your keys amongst all the goodies you’ve got stashed inside and padded handles make it comfortable to carry even when it’s filled to the brim.See ItBeach ChairsOstrich Deluxe Beach Chair – $119What’s in a beach chair? Well, if you’re lucky, portability, durability, comfort, and clever design. And wouldn’t you know it, this Deluxe Chair from Ostrich has all four. Made with heavy duty polyester on an aluminum frame, the chair has five adjustable back positions and three adjustable footrest positions. It sits 12” off the ground so you can assume maximum lounge position and fit snugly under your favorite tent, umbrella, or canopy. It also has an attached pillow and an open/close face cavity and arm holes to let you enjoy the sun’s sweet kisses on your back without suffocating or wrenching your head awkwardly to one side. The wooden armrests are equipped with storage for small essentials, including a cup holder. To top it all off, an attached carrying strap makes it a breeze to tote to the beach and back.See ItCabanaCoolCabanas 3 – $119 – 139Although we like to think of beach days as time spent under a bright summer sun, a reliable shady respite is just as important. Umbrellas don’t always offer the coverage you’re looking for, and tents can be a frustrating hassle to set up. We recommend investing in the CoolCabanas 3 – a full, glorious beach cabana that pops open as easily as your classic umbrella. Just pop open the rig from the center stake and fill the four corner pouches with sand for stability. Then sit back and relax. When you’re ready to head home, pack it back into the carrying case and you’re on your way.See ItA Wagon for Your HaulMac Sports Folding Utility Wagon – $146If you’re going all out and a tote won’t cut it, pick up this handy utility wagon to transport your beachy haul. Its 36” x 21” x 25” interior can hold up to 150lbs of oceanside goodies, and the fold-out table has two cup holders to hold your tropical libations while you chill. Thick, heavy duty wheels and an adjustable handle make it easy for anyone to maneuver on sand and the durable fabric is easy to clean. The whole thing collapses into a neat little package for easy storage.See ItLeave the Sand at the BeachBeach Be Gone – $12When the summer sun sets and it’s time to pack it in, there’s just one more item you’ll want to have on hand. Olita’s Beach Be Gone is a gentle body powder you sprinkle over your skin to remove sand and keep it from coating the interior of your car. The powder comes in fragrances like Coconut, Tangerine, and Cool Surf to freshen you up a bit too (there’s also a fragrance-free version). As Olita says, “leave the sand at the beach, not on your seat!”See ItNow that you’re equipped with our top ten list of beach essentials, all that’s left to do is decide which ocean-side respite to visit next.
