Ask the MB -- Collegiate Messenger Bag

XN Vertical Messenger via Flight 001, $72.00
XN Vertical Messenger via Flight 001. $72.00.
Q: So college starts soon, and I'd like a new bag. I really like messenger bags, but most of them are so UN-magnificent. What should this bastard buy for school? By the way, just discovered this site about a week ago, and it's one of my new favorites!

A: John, normally we would recommend something from Mandarina Duck or Knomo, but since you're in college, we'd rather see you spend your money on beer, grass, and condoms. Not necessarily in that order. For a cool messenger bag on a budget that no one else will own (that also holds a laptop), try this XN Vertical Messenger from one of our favorites, Flight 001. Currently 30% off clearance.

POURCAST

BETA

Sazerac

  • 3 shots rye whiskey (or to taste)
  • 1 sugar cube
  • Peychaud's Bitters
  • quarter shot of Absinthe
  • lemon twist

Soak the sugar cube with the bitters and place in the bottom of a highball glass. Mash with the back of a spoon (or muddler, which we hope has not been used to make a Mojito), add the rye whiskey and fill the glass with ice. Stir for about 30 seconds and then strain into another lowball glass that has been rinsed with Absinthe and filled about halfway with ice. Garnish with a lemon twist.
