You may or may not know that vinyl records play an increasingly important role in my life. Even while I'm writing this with a dude in a rocking chair with a whisky to my right and Mott the Hoople spins on the record player behind me. And there is a tequila-based beverage in front of me. That's worth mentioning. Anyway, you get the picture.
While I may be a firm believer that flea markets and tag sales are the best places to help curate a proper record collection, I came across 'Vinyl Me, Please' and I'm full on obsessed with even just the notion of it. This monthly subscription takes on both a vintage music and badass cocktail education, which I think we can all agree is basically the coolest.
Each month, you will get a record in the mail. But not just whatever is hot right now. Ew, I just said 'whatever is hot right now' and I'm sorry. It's what the people behind this genius idea feel is an 'essential record'...one that every collection should have and every listener should be familiar with. They don't stop there though. No no. Along with it, you'll get a recipe for a cocktail that will perfectly accompany the record while you listen to it, as well as an album-inspired piece of art.
