Fall apparently is the perfect time to go camping, less people, less bugs and less chance of getting overheated whilst sitting round the campfire drinking cocktails being three good reasons to pitch up in Pennsylvania. Well at least that’s how the cool cats at local Art In The Age store roll when it comes to the great outdoors, in fact such is their love of a well mixed tipple that they’ve hooked up with our good friends Poler to create the Camp Vibes Cocktail Kit. It contains everything the backwood bar-tender requires for a blissful and boozy evening under the stars, all neatly packed into a rugged Poler excursion pack. The kit includes an Art in the Age tee-shirt, a Stanley camp flask, two enamelled cups, a handy scout notebook, a woven patch, a Bic pen, Pok Pok drinking vinegar and some Stumptown Cold Brew. Though I’ve no idea what half of this stuff is or does it sure looks like the recipe for a wonderful evening, my only complaint is that it doesn’t contain a song sheet for Blue Shadows (On the trail)or a talking tortoise to wish you goodnight.
If you’re feeling lucky/creative Art In The Age are hosting a giveaway of the cocktail kit on Instagram right now (ends November 1st). To enter just take a photo of your favourite Art In The Age cocktail ingredients and post on twitter using #CampVibes and @ArtInTheAge
