For Issue 02, we flew down to Cuba to do some long-awaited exploring, gathering all of the cigars and rum the island has to offer. We then returned stateside and dug up even more. In Southern California, we visited the garage-oasis of Mercedes Motoring and obsessed over their immaculate collection of classic Benzes. We wrapped things up with edited guides full of machetes, submarines, golf equipment, sneakers, watches, and skateboards, among other gear.
Sandwiches are good, but they're even better when they're hot. The Dualit Combi Toaster ($320) can help your pastrami on rye with an included chrome basket to hold the sandwich in place, wide slots, and hand assembled English quality.
We refuse to use the word cute on Uncrate. But if we did, that's the only way we could describe these things. Made of porous ceramic, Egglings ($9 each) look just like a real egg and come with a terra cotta tray and seed pack — your choice of basil, thyme, lobelia, or phlox.
