Something of Use – Ball Aluminum Cups

solo cupsYou’re hosting a BBQ and the numbers are larger than 10 people – what do you use for beer cups?

Most people go for the Solo Plastic Cups – they are inexpensive and can be recycled, right? Too bad that they don’t keep the beer cold and break at the top with force.  You can wash them by hand, but the dishwasher is not an option.

A friend hosted a party in the Midwest and offered these Ball Aluminum Cups instead:

Stealing from the Boys…

With the Gloomy Weather dievca had picked up a packable anorak from the Gap.
It’s not super ladylike,
but it’s been useful and a the print is a conversation starter.

GapFit Hybrid Pullover Anorak MSRP $79.95

dievca bought a Men’s small and it goes over layers.
The anorak is on sale at gap.com for $49.95 and possibly an extra 40% off –
but there is only size XL left online.
You can check availability for other sizes at stores, on the site.

Maybe that would work for you or someone you know?
If dievca bought it for Master, it would be too matchy-matchy…right?
