A little high-end shopping fun at Tosa Saks, Nordstrom Rack
I wanted to see the hubbub first-hand, so I joined the throngs of crowds checking out the brand new Mayfair Collection today. The parking lot was packed, but the two stores I visited weren't too chaotic. And once things settle down a bit, I'm sure I'll be back.

Now the games count
Opening Day has always been a special day for me. It was 16 years ago, on April 7, 1998 that I celebrated my first day of self employment (and the birth of at County Stadium. I haven't missed many since then.

Now in Milwaukee, Lucky Tiger continues classic barbershop tradition
In an industry where positioning a brand as retro vintage is suddenly new and trendy, Milwaukee's Lucky Tiger doesn't even need to even try. Trademarked in Kansas City in 1935, the iconic men's brand actually stretches back to a barber shop from the 1920s, when it was a very large line of tonics and hair products.

Until next time, Arizona
And just like that, the trip is over. The one that I spend 360 days a year daydreaming about. The one that almost didn't happen. On one hand, it feels like we just got here. On the other hand, when I look at myself in the mirror right now, it feels like I've been here for a month.

Hank brightens already sunny Arizona days
When I left off last night, we were heading out to dinner, our first actual meal of this year's spring training trip. It's really been a great 24 hours in the Valley of the Sun, and we're all now in full-on Cactus League mode.

Hope, once again, springs warmly eternal
After 15 years of consecutive Brewers spring training trips, this one almost didn't happen. My tradition of fleeing the Milwaukee winter and heading to Arizona to watch the Crew tune up for the regular season pre-dates the creation of by one month.

6 super-skinny wallets reviewed
I'm a little obsessed with minimalist wallets. Ever since I realized that sitting on a "Costanza wallet" in my back pocket was bad for lots of reasons, I've been searching for the skinniest front pocket wallet out there.

Brewers spring training guide, 2014
When Brewers fans talk to me about Spring Training, I always see the same look in their eyes. "I've always wanted to do that," they say wistfully, like Arizona exists in some far-away land, where you sit right next to the field and talk to the players in between in innings.
