Honomobar is the Shipping Container Bar That Can Go Where You Go

We loved it when Honomobo debuted its sleek, ultra-modern line of shipping container homes. Luckily for us, the Canadian company didn’t stop there. Brace yourselves: the Honomobar is coming.

Honomobo changed the modular housing game with its series of dwellings that completely rethought what a shipping container could be. The designs thoughtfully incorporate materials to enhance the structure, not hide it, and the finishes result in a quality, contemporary home that is also affordable.

Building on the foundation of its foundation-less homes, Honomobo has gone one step and created a shipping container bar. Honomobar is created from a single recycled shipping container and polished with the brandsignature style.

The bars, measuring just 100 square feet, can be placed anywhere. No, really — the display model was hauled up the side of a snowy mountain for an afternoon of ‘boarding and beers.

From poolside in your backyard to lakeside at your cabin, Honomobars go everywhere you do. Because these structures don’t need a foundation, you aren’t limited bywhere they can be placed. They are delivered in about four to six weeks and are ready to use so you can get the party started right away.

The bar layout is pretty basic. There are two back walls, a door, and an L-shaped counter. There are floating shelves on the back wall for displaying and storing bottles and glasses. This basic arrangement is decked out in sleek touches that create the feeling of a high-end, exclusive bar.

The exposed shipping container walls are painted black, which is offset by the light wood, Canadian fir butcher block countertop. While no plumbing or electrical is included, there is a junction box that allows for the bar to be hooked up to an extension cord (provided, of course, you set up the Honomobar close enough to a source). The entire structure is able to be closed up when not in use thanks to an aluminum roll shutter. Hydraulic lifting arms allow the bar window to easily be opened, turning it into a canopy for the bartop.

Honomobo is currently taking limited orders for 2018, so get yours in now and have your Honomobar delivered in time for an epic Memorial Day weekend.

Are missing your drama/comedy binge sessions? Stream these series and get your fix
Jeremy Allen White as Carmy in The Bear

One of the best FX shows ever just finished its third season. If you're like us, you probably want even more of The Bear in your life after the drama/comedy wrapped up another 10 episodes of kitchen madness. Following the anxiety, excitement, and family bonds of Carmy Berzatto and his crew as they transform a Chicago sandwich restaurant into a fine dining experience, the series expertly mixes melancholy human elements with dark humor and deft filmmaking techniques like musical composition and montage.

The Bear doesn't really have many mirrors on television at the moment. Some shows share the series' high-octane dysfunction, while others possess the same type of camerawork and direction. If you're missing the Hulu series, we're here to round up the shows that are most similar to it in one way or another. These are the 10 shows like The Bear.

NYT Connections hints and answers for July 12, 2024
The logo for Connections.

From the people that bring you the crossword and Spelling Bee, Connections is the latest NYT Games sensation that has the internet abuzz. Although the game is still word-based, Connections is fundamentally different than many of the other games released by NYT Games and can be uniquely frustrating as a result. It tests your ability to group words together into coherent categories and presents a different challenge every time you play it. And, like Wordle and so many other NYT Games, you can share your results with friends and compare them as soon as you're done.

Connections is still in a sort of testing phase at the moment, but given the game's success to date, it seems clear that the game could have the kind of legs that make it a long-running success that people integrate into their everyday lives. Like Wordle, and unlike the crossword, it's a relatively quick game, which means that playing it doesn't have to eat up your entire day. That's part of the reason so many people have gotten devoted to it and why you may be seeing more Connections results in group chats and on your social media feeds than you were a few weeks ago.
How to play Connections
The premise of Connections is relatively straightforward. The game gives you 16 words that are totally unsorted, and your job is to sort those words into four categories of four. A group of words may be combined because they're all associated with another word or thing, like "car parts" for example, or because they have something else in common, like "ends with x." The categories can be almost anything, and the smart folks behind Connections work extra hard to make sure it's hard to file things away neatly into categories. There's plenty of ambiguity, which is why you get four wrong guesses before you lose the game.
