Supervisor Sophie Maxwell’s Barack Obama Handbag – For The Win

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

Here’s San Francisco Supervisor Sophie Maxwell TCB (Taking Care of Business) on a weekend trying to sort through issues relating to Speaker of the the House Nancy Pelosi and the Golden Gate Bridge. But what’s this – a vibrant Barack Obama leather handbag? Let’s take a closer look:

Is that a Coach Leatherware brass grommet? It seems to be: 

Why doesn’t Coach follow the lead of Ben & Jerry’s and Southwest Airlines and make a million of these? They’d sell well.

The Wine Purse – How E. & J. Gallo Helps Women Drink More Wine

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

Isn’t always the same at house parties – you know, a bunch of women come over and they start tearing through your whisky, your scotch and your MGD Miller Genuine Draft beer. Then you show them all the nice, properly-chilled wine bottles and custom-tailored Riedel glasses you have ready for them and all you get is a chorus of “Ewwwww wine, gross!”

Well now you’re in luck. New, from E. & J. Gallo, it’s a box of rose wine shaped like a purse! “EASY TO CARRY, EASY TO COOL, EASY TO SHARE.” Isn’t it precious? Inside is 50 fluid ounces of tasty tasty White Grenache, “loved by women almost as much as they love their handbags.”

Over in the U.K., this product is revolutionizing the entire “BIB” (Booze In Box) category. Watch the video, why don’t you. But isn’t this whole concept a “tad condescending” to women? Perhaps, but that’s what they said about Fling chocolate from Mars, Incorporated and now they’re doing land office business.    

The lesson here is that you need to find a supplier and stock up on Gallo wine purses. These things will help you hold onto your dwindling supply of contraband Sparks drink (banned in CA since last month, “mmmmm, medicine-y,” “is she Sparks-worthy?”) all that much longer.

So, look out, Veuve Clicquot City Traveler Wine Bottle Case, there’s a new clutch in town.

Thanks Gallo(TM) Family Vineyards!

A Veuve Clicquot City Traveler Wine Bottle Case Actually Used as a Purse

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

Here’s a deal that’s been around for a while – the Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin house of sparkling wine (we’re not supposed to call it Champagne anymore) will throw in an insulated case and a couple of Champagne(TM) flutes for $10 when you buy a $30-something, full sized, 750ml bottle of Yellow Label. Just toss out the “cooling neoprene insulation” (cooling, really?) and you’re good to go.

Heretofore, you wouldn’t see these things being used as clutches around town, but now you can. See? From a recent San Francisco soiree (that also cost $10):

Available in 375ml and 750ml sizes, Ostentatious Yellow or Passionate Pink only.  

And while you’re at it, you might as well pick up the matching love seat for $10,000 as well.

Classy!
