The 2014 Knockaround Red Jacket

Red-Jacket-2014

Every year, mid-way through April, I give away a red jacket to a Knockaround fan and customer who stands out among the rest.  The Knockaround Red Jacket features a classic, tailored fit, vintage silver buttons, and our iconic “Superblend with Ace on Base” patch (unchanged since the company started) under the front chest pocket.

It is my great honor to present the 2014 Knockaround Red Jacket to Mr. Harris Lue.

Harris is currently a senior at East Carolina University and is a die-hard Knockaround fan.  Harris first popped onto our radar last year when he was a Campus Rep.  The Campus Rep program technically only lasts one year, but Harris has continued to spread the word about Knockaround even after the assignment was up.  Harris places Knockaround orders on a regular basis, and he’s always active and engaged on our Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

But more importantly, Harris embodies everything that Knockaround is about:  being creative, ambitious, and outgoing.

While still in college, Harris started his own business, LUE Creative, an outlet that showcases his graphic design talents (and love for everything automotive.)  Check out this t-shirt he designed for one of my favorite websites, Jalopnik.

Plus, the dude can throw one hell of a Knockaround pool party (we’ve got the pictures, and video, to prove it.)

So, congratulations, Harris.  I hope you look good in red.  -Ace

Uncle Ace’s Famous Nutcracker Punch!

December in San Diego can feel downright tropical sometimes. Palm trees swaying in the breeze, hummingbirds fluttering from flower to flower… and Uncle Ace’s Famous Nutcracker Punch! An exotic combination of juices and fruits, Ace invented this tasty concoction a few weekends ago while sitting on his back patio. You’ve heard of “The Nutcracker Suite”? Nah dawg, this is “The Nutcracker: Sweet!” -Uncle Ace

The Blitzin’ Blitzen Bloody Mary

I love this time of year.  Everyone is in the holiday spirit, yule tidings are in full effect, and there’s usually a football game or two on TV!  For those festive weekend mornings when you’re hanging out with friends before kickoff, try serving up a few Blitzin’ Blitzen Bloody Mary’s.  A recipe I’ve honed over many years, the B.B.B.M. will simultaneously stave your hunger and warm you from within.  Mmm.  Delicious.  -Ace
