S&C alerts–men’s sneakers, meat cocktails

We might as well call this edition the gentleman’s quarters. Below are some of my more masculine finds in shoes, cocktails, and things related.

  • Stylish sneakers are shoes you’ll be seeing a lot more of. The sneakers I like to call hipster sneakers are no longer just for hipsters. They have a place in every man’s closet. It is no coincidence that while promoting Kung Fu Panda at the Cannes Film Festival, Jack Black had a foot prominent in every photo. Yeah, it’s a kung fu move, but he’s also endorsing Ben Sherman’s Compton shoe.
  • Our carnivorous friends, Julie & Jerry, recently subscribed to a meat newsletter and passed on an article about meat cocktails. I’m not surprised to find that Chicago’s mixologists are also taking a shine to meat jus as a cocktail ingredient. There’s a Ham and Cheese with Hennessey, a Baconcello with granny smith apple, and naturally, a Bacon Bloody Mary. Looks like a contender for the S&C test kitchen. Maybe during football season.

  1. how about a martini with bacon-stuffed olives?

  2. shoesandcocktails

    Or pancetta-stuffed — depending on the shoe, of course.

  3. thought of another one – chorizo stuffed olives in sangrita

  4. Holy crap, I never saw this one. I was in san francisco when this was posted. Cool!
