Because you deserve it.


Hey, you. Yeah, you there in the comfy seat with your shirt (maybe) and pants (probably) and hair (ish). are you growing tired of fast-paced television and movies delivering laughs and excitement and adventure with musical scores to rock your world? Probably not, but that shit’s expensive, and you work hard for your money, so pick up a copy of REED for a few bucks, pour yourself a bottle of two-buck chuck and have an evening┬áto yourself — you deserve it.

Day 4: Dom!




One of the highlights of the trip was meeting an old friend who showed up with a 2003 bottle of Dom Perignon in honor of the year he last saw me. We are both serious oyster aficionados and thus went to Shuckers, universal headquarters for bivalve lovers.
