Road Notes: Day 276

We're heading to Poo Poo Palooza in a few hours (pre-party for the Life is Shit festival). The next two weeks are going to be quite busy and I'm looking forward to letting looooooose a little bit.

In other news, we'll be profiling a $100 candy bar here in a few days. Here are the notes the PR rep sent over today. Vegas.

The Louis XIII Grand Gold Bar at SW Steakhouse is inspired by one of the most treasured spirits in the world –Louis XIII cognac, the Louis XIII Gold Bar is an ultra-extravagant candy bar combining Valrhona Caraibe dark chocolate ganache with praline crunch and Louis XIII caramel. The bar is enrobed in edible 23K gold and presented with a disc of Louis XIII caramel ice cream. Price is $100.

Crafted by the House of Remy Martin, the prized cognac is made using white grapes from the Grande Champagne territory – the finest cru in Cognac, France. Louis XIII is considered one of the rarest and most prestigious cognacs in the world, due to its use of highest quality eaux-de-vie, it’s long aging time (at least 40 years) and its limited supply. The dessert is presented tableside in a custom-made presentation box inspired by SW’s luxe interior design.

Anyhow, I look forward to inhaling it mindlessly. "Excuse me, do you have ranch?"


In other other news, I keep forgetting to get a photo of our new scooter but I did find some old ads today while I was searching for a repair manual online (something I do with every new vehicle - an ounce of prevention). This one's my fave (ours is red):

We definitely have to get two now (and a DOG!).


If you haven't seen it yet (which is crazy), we posted another Daring Pairing yesterday: PX Sherry Snow Cones (shot at the historic Peter Pan Mini-Golf in Austin, TX). Check it out here. Seriously, you don't want to be the only person at the office tomorrow who hasn't seen it.

Wish us luck tonight. If I write another of these tomorrow it will be a fucking miracle.
