Things We Love: Alive staff picks

From the April 24, 2014 edition

Justin:

Patton Oswalt’s Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time

My native-Floridian wife couldn’t agree more with Oswalt’s twist on the trope that the Sunshine State is America’s wang. Everything else on this special is equally brilliant.

Brad:

Blue Jackets playoff hockey

No matter what happens in this hard-fought series with the Penguins (boo!), this is a run to be proud of. And I’m ready for more.

Alyse:

Homemade Ice Cream

It beats the store-bought stuff any day of the week. Plus, mine is sugar-free and lactose-free!

Lauren K.:

MINI JAMBOX

This small bluetooth speaker comes in nine colors and has a long battery life, which makes it ideal for weekend trips and festivals.

Jesse:

Reading outside

There are many ways to enjoy the beautiful weather we’ve had recently, and I’ve done a few, but sitting on the porch with a good book has been my favorite.

Abernathy:

My pen pal in Puerto Rico

“I am in a constant territory war with packs of roaming dogs. You should visit!”

Meghan:

Challah Food Truck

They are less than 100 yards away from my front door at least once a week, and it is glorious.
