Father’s Day will be here in a few weeks, which reminds me of this hilarious book (based off the blog with the same name)- Dads are the Original Hipsters. We have it on our front table and we have gotten so many comments saying- THAT IS TOTALLY MY DAD!! The book is awesome- with vintage photos of real dads back in the day—in their short shorts and tight tees playing arcade games that accompany snarky captions that at once tip a cap to Dad’s glory days and poke fun at modern hipsters. It’s a gem. Dads are the Original Hipsters- $12.95.

Same-sex marriage has been gaining a lot of momentum lately, and we are in full support! The Obama administration’s recent brief to the US Supreme Court calling for broad constitutional protection will hopefully lead to nation-wide recognition of gay unions. Even President Bill Clinton, who signed the Defense of Marriage Act into law is urging that it now be struck down as unconstitutional. It’s encouraging to see such a shift in perception. If you haven’t yet heard the heartwarming story of a gay couple finding a baby on the subway, you must read this. And grab some tissues. They were finally able to legalize their marriage just last year. Love is love regardless of sex, race, or ethnicity, and we need to put an end to all forms of discrimination.

It’s not exactly Betty Crocker, but our newest cookbook is packed full of sinfully-delicious recipes. Fifty Shades of Chicken…yes, that’s right…..is a Fifty Shades parody/cookbook. We nearly laughed ourselves to the floor when this book came in stock. The text is seriously hilarious, and paired with the photography (don’t worry–there’s nothing NSFW in here…..although reading the text might make you blush) and genuinely delicious-looking recipes you have a funny AND functional cookbook!
