Since it seems we've kicked off the bbq season, and my friends like to enjoy a bevy or two outside, I thought it was time to invest in some outdoor glasses. When we bbq, I like to use real plates, glasses, etc except when the crowd is so big that I simply don't have enough. Our crew drinks quite a bit of beer, but the ladies like a glass of wine or two especially if it's a little chilly and we're lighting a fire. We have some lovely Reidel stemless glasses, but I don't love using them outside for a party. Too many variables. So we were in CB2 down in Santa Monica last weekend, and I found these:
They're nice and thin (probably a little breakable) but their bases are completely flat, so they'll be less likely to totter off the table. I bought the shortest/stubbiest size. They're brilliant at less than $2/glass plus they're very stackable, so they're perfect for picnic/party use and storage otherwise. Yay!
