Fancy Stash Box Poker

Because walking to the kitchen is too much trouble

Check it out … I suspect someone was playing at a casino and watching how the table-embedded auto-shufflers work when they thought: How awesome would it be if you could press a button, and instead of getting a new deck, you got snacks and cocktails? The new GameBar, from the not-quite-sueably named Playerati, features a hidden, refrigerated snack bar that serves up refreshments at the table. A much better way to get everyone a round of chilled Tuaca shots than waiting for cocktail service. Press the button again for the electronic poker dumbwaiter to retract until the next round.

Theoretically can also be used to serve up weapons and drugs. Load the thing with semi-automatic handguns, and never fear home-game robbery again, knowing that you can arm your table from your game’s hidden (refrigerated) weapons cache at a moment’s notice. Good place to hide the bank, too … not to mention little sandwiches.

Ask yourself why all tables don’t have secret refrigerated compartments at

Energy Booze for Drunken Maniacs

Just got back from my beloved 7-Eleven, where I continue to pay back the cost of my college education in the form of coffee, cigarettes, and Cheeseburger Big Bites. Always on the lookout for something different, I happened to notice a [not-so-] new beverage called TILT. At first I didn’t even realize I was looking at the beer case — but this semi-poker themed product actually has more alcohol than beer, more caffeine than Mountain Dew, and a little ginseng and guarana to boot. Mmmm … who says uppers and downers don’t mix?

We’ve previously speculated that energy drinks might-could be the next poker. Too much profit in an exploding, arguably addictive market for the Feds not to take notice. And indeed, Anheuser-Busch, the makers of TILT, are starting to feel the government heat from 30 states’ attorneys general and the U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau.
