Its glow based outdoor games — inspired by classic group activities — are designed to be played outside in the evenings, just at the time when other options are scarce and kids are more apt to turn to tech for their entertainment.

This time they have engineered both the slimmest and the first voice-activated smart wallet to date.

#5: Reuzel

As “created by barbers, used by gentlemen,” Reuzel aims to bring the world’s finest pomades and men’s grooming essentials to the market. Its roots come from Schorem, a classic men-only barbershop in Rotterdam, which has long been frequented by greasers, rockers, bikers, psychobillys, ruffians and other cool-looking folks. And if you’re follically-challenged like I am, you still ought to enjoy Reuzel’s beard and shaving-related wares.

#7: Ketel One’s Arnold Palmer Bottle

For the golf dad who loves a little history — and a little vodka — the Ketel One Arnold Palmer bottle honors Mr. Palmer’s passing. The go-to drink of Mr. Palmer himself was of course a Ketel One on the rocks with a twist of lemon. Bottle aside, Ketel One also sells a recreation of the pink polo made famous by the golf legend.

#8: Discord by SPY Sunglasses

As big and bold as the era and music that inspired it, a little dissension goes a long way in this large-scale, ’80s-inspired piece. Available with the Happy Lens and Trident polarization, the Discord by SPY is constructed from virtually indestructible Grilamid and features sturdy 5-barrel hinges, 6-base polycarbonate ARC® lenses, and 100 percent UV protection. Thus, a wearer of said glasses comes away looking fashionable while also optimally protecting their eyes.

Quicksilver Scientific is one of the fastest growing companies in the health and wellness arena, with revenues growing exponentially in the past 3 years. Not all CBD products are created equal and Quicksilver Scientific’s new Full Spectrum Hemp Extract and Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract both aim to provide a proprietary nanoemulsion technology that dramatically enhances absorption and delivery of the full range of phytocannabinoids, enabling much more CBD to be absorbed by the body per dose. Or in more simple terms, Quicksilver Scientific’s CBD-based products are pure, quality-oriented, healthy and forward-thinking.

#10: Woody Guthrie All-Star Tribute Concert 1970 on DVD

The All-Star Tribute Concert 1970 release celebrates the life and work of the legendary folk singer and songwriter Woody Guthrie, whose songs have become part of the bedrock of American life. 3 years after Guthrie died of Huntington’s disease in 1967, the California chapter of the Committee to Combat Huntington’s Disease — now known as the Hereditary Disease Foundation — helped stage this concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles to raise funds for Huntington’s research. Although the concert took place one night only, 4-time Emmy award winner Jim Brown filmed this historic event, with performances by such renowned artists as Arlo Guthrie, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, Country Joe McDonald, Odetta, Richie Havens, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Earl Robinson, and The Band along with narration by actors Will Geer and Peter Fonda. Extras include 3 not previously recorded songs performed by Joan Baez, Odetta and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, as well as concert rehearsal footage and audio interviews with Arlo Guthrie and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott.

For full disclosure, I first met LaLaScoop founder Melissa Curtin on a press trip to Tulsa, Oklahoma — the former home of Woody Guthrie — so All-Star Tribute Concert 1970 brings back some great memories of a 2018 trip to a city which many are calling “the next Austin.”
