porch pounders ad-2

Ever heard of a Porch Pounder? It’s the label wine industry people give to wines that go down easily, won’t break the bank and always deliver. It’s a crowd pleaser. Open one at the end of a long week, and you’re sure to start off the weekend in a good place. We’ve partnered with Bin 604 to bring to you the Porch Pounder of the Month and a few other wine suggestions. The staff at Bin 604 regularly tastes over one-hundred wines every week, so you can count on the selections to be ones you’ll want to pound on the porch…or anywhere at all!

The week, the staff at Bin 604 suggests affordable Easter wines to complement your holiday meal.  Pairing wines with traditional Easter foods can be tricky: which wine goes as well with Peeps as it does with deviled eggs? But the wine lovers at Bin 604 have found just the right Easter wines, versatile enough to go with everything on your plate!

Duff Goldman’s Cakes Are All Over This New Katy Perry Video

Charm City Cakes proprietor designed Katy Perry's "Birthday" cakes

If I had directed the video for Katy Perry’s new single “Birthday,” I definitely wouldn’t have decided to write the lyrics on cakes, notepads, and other props. With lines like “So let me get you in your birthday suit / It’s time to bring out the big balloons” I think I’d try to focus the viewer’s attention on something else. But then if I had directed the video it wouldn’t have turned into a three-and-a-half-minute showcase of Duff Goldman’s cake-making chops.

The Charm City Cakes proprietor was tapped to craft the ingenious confections for the video (though as you might expect, the cakes were created at Goldman’s Los Angeles-based Cakemix bakery). Standout include a suit cake, a hamburger cake, and a Rubik’s Cube cake. Read More →
