Good morning and happy Wednesday. The NASA space probe Juno has reached its target after a five-year journey. Juno will orbit the gas giant Jupiter in the hopes that data will reveal clues to its formation and whether or not there is a solid core beneath its giant gaseous mass. While we wait for Juno to report back, here’s what’s good in gear (on Earth): an astonishing luxury yacht, an all-electric track car, an off-white notebook and much more.
And here are some fresh stories to start the day.
Allen Brothers Steaks and Meats
Celebrating the Great American Summer with a perfectly grilled steak is impossible if the steaks aren’t perfect before they hit the grill. Allen Brothers do the best and nothing more — that’s why they’ve supplied some of the most premier restaurants in the country with their hand-cut USDA Prime meats for 120 years. Their expertise goes beyond just beef (so should yours, by the way), though their Wagyu and Kobe are top notch. Check out bison steaks, ribs and burgers; try elk burgers next weekend; Australian lobster tails and Alaskan king crab legs are calling for drawn butter. Point is, you could go to your regular store and get whatever is on sale, or you could go to Allen Brothers and have only the best shipped right to your door, where you’ll be waiting, apron on and tongs in hand. And happy, since you just bought a $176 twelve-pack of steaks and burgers for $100 using promo code GP2016 at checkout after the jump below.
Rivamare Yacht by Riva
39 feet of mahogany-meets-stealth-jet. Designed by Officina Ialiana Design and powered by two Volvo engines, this ultra-luxury yacht can reach a top speed of 40 knots. Of course there’s plenty of plush seating and sunbathing space; belowdeck you’ll find a large bedroom, full kitchen and bathroom with a shower.
Island Green Blended Whisky by Johnnie Walker
Combining single malts that hail from all four corners of Scotland, this newly launched tipple from the masters of Scotch is available now.
eRod by Kyburz
Tesla, meet track. This Swiss missile is an all-electric demon made for racing. There are three flavors — basic, fun and race — and each comes with a different battery setup that increases power with each upgrade. Weighing in at just over 1,400 pounds, the race model squeezes out the equivalent of 200 horsepower. Might be worth moving to Switzerland…
Notebooks by First Draft Co.
Handsome, sturdy and useful — what more could a guy ask for? This notebook comes in red and blue colorways too, though off-white seems appropriate. A strong elastic band keeps your work sealed away using just a simple pencil, while 70# paper documents your musings and offers a pleasant handfeel.
Collapsible Water Bottle by Hydaway
It’s a healthy choice to stay hydrated. But it’s such a pain in the ass to haul a bottle around. This collapsible option folds to less than two inches thick, it’s 100 percent BPA free and will survive dishwasher runs to keep it crisp and clean.
