The Pete Holmes Show is a brand new late night TV show hosted by Massachusetts-born comedian Pete Holmes that will feature sketches (check out his Ex-Men: Gambit video), interviews (with great guests such as Rory Scovel, Deepak Chopra, and Rob Corddry) and more.

Pete also draws cartoons for The New Yorker, wrote for NBC’s “Outsourced” and FOX’s “I Hate My Teenage Daughter.”

A Kit to Turn an Ordinary Pumpkin Into a Keg

Pumpkin Tap Kit

KegWorks has made a Pumpkin Tap Kit which they state “has everything you need to turn an ordinary pumpkin (or watermelon) into a pumpkin drink dispenser” (i.e. a keg) and we think it would be great for boozy seasonal beverages like pumpkin beer. The kit is available to purchase on Amazon or you could try making your own.
