Get a New Pair of Swim TRUNKS

Dr. Handsome and Pretty Handsome in their summer suits circa 2007

…and spend money doing it. You wear your swimsuit when you’re already half naked (also known as “half Handsome” in some circles), so we think it’s important you put forth at least a touch of effort to find something that makes you look decent. It’s what women do with their suits ad infinitum, and what you do with all your other suits (work, formal, sweat, birthday), so why not bathing suits? The assumption is that you won’t wear it that often, that no one will care, or that it isn’t worth it.

WRONG. How long has it been since you got a new swimsuit? 3 years? 5 years? Longer? Are you using a random set of board shorts you found in the bag of a loaned surfboard, or an awful orange pair you got in sale one late October in Florida at a Wal-Mart that were the only ones you could find, but hey, $7-for-a-swimsuit is pretty good? (Dirty Handsome = guilty of both) (Read on …)

Entertaining: Gold Medal in Ice Luge

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

Having attended several parties, soirees, and get togethers over the holidays, we endeavor in January to provide you with some entertaining tips and tricks.

Art imitates life... if you've had enough to drink

Art imitates life... if you've had enough to drink

The ice luge – few party gimmicks compare in versatility, novelty, and brutal effectiveness. Need an easy drinking game? Themed party ideas? The ice luge is party city. The setup is simple: go wholesale and buy one piece of block ice. Cut a slight incline in the block ice using a chisel, chainsaw, or similar. Carve one chute from the top to the bototm of the incline. For an extra Handsome time, carve two similar chutes and hold races with your fellow party goers. Buy booze. That’s it – one of the best drinking games is at your disposal. Booze at the top becomes ice cold by the time it reaches your mouth at the bottom.

At first blush (trust me, someone will be blushing), this doesn’t seem like the classiest way to get a party going. (Read on …)

Dirty Handsome celebrates love and marraige the only way he knows how

Dirty Handsome celebrates marriage the only way he knows how

Some weeks ago a gaggle of excellent high school friends were in town for a wedding. After the rehearsal dinner things devolved into karaoke at Orchid in Koreatown. This was the most respectful photo of the (extensive) set that still conveyed the overwhelming amount of fun we had. Congrats to Ian & Lindsey.

Handsome Field Trip: Picking Pinot

Clone 777 Pinot Noir Grapes, ready for the bucket

Clone 777 pinot noir, ready for the bucket

Last weekend we went to the Santa Ynez valley in Santa Barbara wine country to pick some of the best pinot noir grapes in the region. Was this part of some wine country tour or easy-street wine tasting? Nope – we were at Clos Pepe Vineyards volunteering for the annual harvest of chardonnay and pinot noir wine grapes. Volunteering for manual labor may sound like a ridiculous thing to do, but on the contrary it’s really quite handsome.

We’re hardly oenephiles, but being slightly knowledgeable about wine has many practical applications, including but not limited to:

  • impressing dates
  • making wine store trips less intimidating
  • adding to our formidable arsenal of smug party conversation topics

Handsome Drinks – The Half Pint in NYC

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008
Enjoying fresh beer with old friends at the Half Pint

Nothing like a good beer with an old friend

When it comes to Manhattan bars, we’ve all had our share of nights/mornings rolling around old streets with loud folks until the sun is peeking up. New York is a great place to go out, but we didn’t want to get confined to the bars in Soho and $14 well cocktails. We’d had our fill of this sort of thing, so when we caught up with an old friend for some intelligent conversation we headed to The Half Pint. After the madness of the joint bachelor/bachelorette party of the weekend, it was nice to go to a low key bar and sip a draught beer beer from the list of 24 – especially since they’re reasonably priced.

The Half Pint had a few things going for it. (Read on …)

Handsome Party – The Conduit of Power

When you're the Conduit of Power, you must j.k. livin'

"The 'J' is for 'Just'; the 'K' is for 'Keep'"

Per the request of a certain reader (we have readers?) – a photo from Sunset Junction. When Pretty Handsome and Dirty Handsome combine using the coveted Matthew McConaughey-provided J.K. Livin’ armbands, awesome things are bound to happen. Like road sodas, some rocking music, or photos where it sort of looks like Dirty Handsome has arm muscle (we have arm muscle?).

Handsome Party – Always Party with Mom

Take me (and mom!) out to the ballgame...

As you may have surmised, the Handsome Association really likes to party in Los Angeles. This is made worse when family is in town, as our family also really likes to party. In honor of (most) of my family getting their power back after Hurricane Gustav (coverage at our real job here) here’s a photo of mom and I singing our hearts out during the 7th inning stretch at Dodger Stadium.
