... it was originally called 'Hockey Rink Style'

Oh, hello there Toques!

We were mentioned recently in a blog called : 'The Canadian Expat | Perpetuating Canadian Stereotypes Since 1979'. With a title like that, we were sold on taking a peek. In the brief post, they talked about our Rink Ratt style being inspired by "the iconic coloured stripes of the Hudson Bay Company". 

The Drink Toque - Rink Ratt
The Drink Toque, style : Rink Ratt

Well, this is sort of true, but not quite. In the design of the Rink Ratt, you will notice 3 red lines, and 2 blue lines. You know what has 3 red lines, and 2 blue lines?

In fact, it was originally called 'Hockey Rink Style'.  That was our concept with this style, and we love the way it turned out. Speaks to the nostalgia of times past, and to our love of hockey. 

Thanks for the post mention The Canadian Expat  :-)

What Iceland and Vagabonds know about CHILLING beer

'Beer being cooled by evaporation', photo : @VagabondJourney
There's toilet paper on my beer, and that's a good thing.

Because you know you like drinking in the park ; ) , and because you 'forgot' your cooler at your friend's BBQ last weekend; you probably are in need of a low tech way to cool your beer while hanging out in the park, camping, "in a middle of a field", wherever you are. Well, Wade Shepard, of, has found a very simple way of cooling your beers. 

"We were camping, without refrigeration, and I was drinking a cool beer in the middle of a field in Iceland ... 

Just wrap up the bottles in a blanket of wet toilet paper (or another material that retains water but also allows for it to dry) and wait for the water to evaporate a little. The drier the paper gets (the more the water evaporates) the cooler your beer should get."

Now, if it works with wet toilet paper, will it work with a wet Drink Toque perhaps??? I am willing to find out. Off to experiment, more on this later.

Like to run, and drink beer?


Have running shoes, will drink beer

Like to run, and drink beer? Me too. And, this guy is definitely taking this issue seriously ...

"Just days before turning 29, Tim Cigelske decided he wanted to do something special for his 30th year on the planet ... and the answer came quickly: run a mile and drink a beer every day. The challenge made perfect sense for Cigelske. In his spare time, he writes’s Beer Runner blog, which chronicles the intersection of lacing up the Nikes and leaning back with a brew.

More than 260 days later, he’s still going ... he might never stop ...

If I’m not in the best shape of my life, I’m definitely close. I’ve never felt better. I’ve built my way up to running about 50 miles a week with no problem ... At the same time, I’m averaging about one beer for every three miles I run. If nothing else, running allows me to enjoy the beer I love guilt-free. That was the point all along." (

For the full interview click here, and to read up on the Beer Runner Blog, click here.
I think we can all agree, this is a fun and delicious way to get in shape ...
