Manchester bar is selling a real life beer pong Christmas jumper so you can play it on the move
Beer pong on the move!
If you love a good game of beer pong, this could be the Christmas jumper for you.
To celebrate its first Christmas, Manchester’s newly-opened bowling, pool and karaoke bar Lane7 has launched a limited edition festive jumper complete with miniature red beer pong cups.
Unlike the original table version of the game, those who wear the jumper – which features a quirky ‘let’s get basted’ design – will be able to stand two metres apart and attempt to land the ball in their opponent’s cups, which are removable from the jumpers in the event of a landed ball.
However, the unique garment won’t be available in your typical run-of-the-mill shop; if die-hard fans wish to get their hands on the jumper, they must visit their local Lane7 venue tomorrow, December 10th, and ask staff to play ‘DecemBeer Pong’ in order to get their hands on one of their own.
Though you’ll need to be quick; jumpers are only being given out to the first five requests of the day. Early morning game of beer pong, anyone?
Jack Jolly, Head of Creative for Lane7, said on the inspiration behind the jumpers: “We know our guests love getting competitive, so we’ve added a new angle on the much-loved tradition of Christmas Jumpers.
“Lane7 loves putting fresh twists on classic games; be it bowling, beer pong, darts, or karaoke.
“After a strange December last year, this year gives us the perfect chance to start a new tradition.”
Lane7 is open now at the Great Northern 3pm-late Monday-Thursday and 11am-late Friday-Sunday. Head over to the Lane7 website for more information.
Aldi shoppers are loving the new bargain garden furniture Special Buys
‘Another winner from Aldi!’
Aldi shoppers are swooning over new bargain garden furniture Special Buys, transforming garden spaces into a ‘haven’.
Aldi shoppers can’t get enough of the European budget supermarket’s new seasonal Special Buy garden sets of rattan furniture and are rushing to the website to get their hands on the bargain stock while they can.
People have fallen head over heels for the new designs in Aldi’s outdoor rattan range, which features budget furniture modelled on the latest expensive trends, making it more affordable for their customers. Items are available for pre-order on its website now but stocks are not yet available in stores.
The cheapest in the range is a Twin Set of Rattan Stools with padded seat cushions which are £49.99 — working out at £25 per item. The twin set comes in three different colours, grey, grey and cream, and anthracite (a darker shade of grey).
Shoppers have called the rattan sets ‘dreamy’, and say they can instantly turn your garden into a boutique-style ‘haven’. One five-star reviewer gushed: “Another winner from Aldi! These are amazing such great quality and the cushions are lovely thick and soft. Really impressed! Such a bargain, well done Aldi!!”
One of the most popular buys from Aldi’s garden range is the grey Rattan Effect Bench for £49.99. Each bench costs less than £50 but they look much more expensive, and could easily be mistaken for a designer piece.
One shopper said: “Fantastic seat can’t believe the price as it looks expensive and good quality. Highly recommend.” Another said: “Delighted with the product, great price very good value.”
Fire pits are usually an expensive piece of garden furniture, costing around £100 or more, and have become popular amongst fans of Love Island and staycationers since the pandemic.
This piece of garden kit has become essential for anyone who really wants to make good use of the outdoor areas — they can really transform any outdoor space into a cosy paradise fit for enjoying a beverage and snuggling up to a loved-one.
Aldi’s newly re-stocked its popular £44.99 Gardenline Tripod Fire Pits have seen glowing five star reviews on its website. One shopper wrote: “Nice product overall easy to assemble and fantastic priced.”
A second Aldi shopper raved: “Excellent product and quality ideal for BBQs and hot toddies.” A third praised: “Absolutely perfect and the price is amazing. Easy to use.”
Arguably the chicest piece in Aldi’s Special Buy range is the Gardenline Rope Effect Rocking Chair, which could be used both indoors and outdoors and costs £129.99. This has also had countless five-star reviews, with shoppers saying it looks a lot more expensive than it actually is.
You can shop Aldi’s full Special Buy garden range on its website. But hurry, as the bouji bargains are only available while stocks last.
Toblerone releases pink chocolate limited edition bar for Valentine’s Day
Wondering what to get your special someone for Valentine’s Day?
Toblerone has released a Pink Limited Edition chocolate bar just in time for Valentine’s Day.
The Swiss chocolatier has urged romantic couples to ‘celebrate’ their love that feels as special as their new limited edition rose coloured bar. Perfect for sharing with the one you love, the new chocolate treat combines the indulgent flavours of raspberries and strawberries surrounded by white chocolate.
You can even personalise your bar by having your partner’s name and a sweet message to them printed on it, just to show you really care. This personalised chocolatey gift does cost a bit more than your average bar at £17 and is available on Toblerone’s official website.
The company is ‘encouraging’ people to take the plunge and ’embrace relationships’. If you don’t have a Valentine to gift the bar to, Toblerone says it will help ‘make sure your life is sweet anyway’, or you could always treat yourself to one, call it an act of self-love.
The flavour joins Toblerone’s classic flavours : Milk, Dark, Crunchy Almond, White and Fruit and Nut, and whilst it’s only around for Valentine’s Day, it looks set to be hugely popular.
You might remember that Toblerone has featured various limited edition bars before. Just last summer they dropped a gold Toblerone bar made with blond chocolate (which is basically caramelised white choc).
We’ve also been graced with the likes of a giant 4.5kg Toblerone. A jumbo version of the distinct chocolate triangular prisms, with honey and almond nougat, was available at Costco stores up and down the UK at Christmas time, costing a whopping £49.99.
Maybe this pink limited edition Toblerone is worth forking out almost 20 quid on, if not for someone else then why not for yourself? Get yours via the Toblerone website.
