Shooting Gallery: Art in the Age

Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction is a Philadelphia -based artist collective championing the the ideals of fine craft and intellectual rigor. Through their website, social communities and, most of all, their flagship store, Art in the Age promotes “thought-provoking products of real cultural capital.” Their name comes from the title of Walter Benjamin‘s famous 1936 essay, “The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction,” in which Benjamin laments the advent of image reproduction and the loss of “aura” or awe for a single work of art.

Art in the Age also makes the absolutely delicious liquor ROOT, an organic spirit distilled from U.S. sugar cane with flavors inspired by pre-temperance alcoholic Root Tea (sassafras, sarsaparilla, etc.).  Find it here.

Review & Giveaway – Elemaris Water Filtration Pitcher by Mavea, January 31, 2012 

 

I try to encourage my family to drink lots of water because my kids tend to get headaches and feel bad if they don’t get enough water. The water from my faucet is horrible! It smells like chemicals and has a not so clean taste to it. The Elemaris Water Filtration Pitcher from Mavea helps to improve the water taste and reduce contaminants (such as Mercury and Copper). The pitcher itself comes in two different colors to choose from: White or Black. Included in the box: The pitcher, filter, lid, in lid water meter and instruction guide.

Free People Walnut Street Opening

 

Yesterday I left work around 5pm to head to our brand new store on Walnut Street in Philadelphia.  We were having a private celebration for home office employees, family and friends before the doors officially opened this morning. From the moment I walked through the carved wooden door, I felt like I was in a very special place.  If you live in the area, I definitely recommend making the trip to see the store in person – but if not, I hope these photos can do it some justice!

{friday cocktail: the root rx}

 

Our friend Josh recently told us about these new liqueurs by the small company on the East Coast called Art In The Age.  They currently only produce three flavors; Root, Rhuby and Snap.  This stuff is not easy to find, currently it is only sold in two locations;  the Cask online store and ONE store in Southern California, Hi-Times in Newport Beach.  Lucky for us, we spend time in Orange County often and picked up a bottle of Snap and Root before the holidays.  After playing around with a few different recipes, we decided on this one for today's post.

 

The Root Rx:

 

1 oz. Famous Grouse

1/2 oz Root Liqueur

1/2 oz. Domaine de Canton

1 oz. lemon juice

1 barspoon Oban Scotch

 

Shake Famous Grouse, Root, Domaine de Canton & lemon juice in a cocktail tin with ice. Strain over ice into an old fashioned glass. Float Oban scotch on top.

 

Cheers!
