Dickle-Gear-Patrol George Dickel No. 1 Foundation Recipe
This whiskey has been George Dickel’s mainstay swill for 140 years running: the recipe is practically ancient, but the white whiskey is un-aged. It is, however, mellowed with charcoal to maintain a sweet corn flavor. One way to guarantee a white Christmas, eh? $22
Republique-Gear-Patrol République
Just released for iOS7 platforms, République is an action horror game that will be available for Windows and OS X early next year. Players control surveillance cameras and hack computer systems to follow and aid in the escape of the game’s protagonist, Hope. She’s trying to thwart a totalitarian government entity that’s held her captive, and the thing looks pretty chilling overall. Good practice for evading the in-laws. $5

These are classic sweatpants — the kind you’d throw on to actually work out. Like their other products, AG’s sweats have the best hardware, reinforced seams, ultra-durable materials and are made with extreme care. The last sweatpants you’ll ever own. $69

Lamborghini-Huracan-Gear-Patrol Lamborghini Huracán
Your Gallardo successor has arrived. The Huracán (ooh-re-cahn), which bows early next year, will be stepping up to the Ferrari 458/McLaren 12C plate with a 5.2-liter V10 that churns a tick over 600 horsepower and rips from 0-60 in just over 3 seconds. Of course there’s all-wheel-drive, but the previous Lambo’s automated manual transmission will be replaced by a dual-clutch job called Lamborghini Doppia Frizione and the majority of its structure will be a combination of carbon and aluminum. Keeping with tradition, Lamborghini has named this sucker after a famous fighting bull, this one from the late 1800s. We can’t wait to take it by the horns… lamborghini.com
