Gifts for Foodies
Bone-In Butcher Shop
Discover the artisanal craftsmanship of the revolutionary BONE-IN Butcher Shop located in Texas, and recognized by Forbes.com as the #1 “Online, Mail-Order” hearty meats. A socially conscious (and cost effective approach) to fine dining “IN” featuring the finest grades of beef, lamb, veal, chicken and pork delivered straight to your front door.
Founder and CEO, John Sayklay, invites you to experience cut proteins, not found on the retail level and typically not available to consumers. Their cutting goes beyond just custom cutting that you will find in your local butcher shop. Don’t confuse your grocery stores “premium choice” label on beef. The USDA doesn’t regulate the word “Premium” and can create false expectations.
NEW ITEMS COMING SOON:
- Additions of organic chicken (think chicken wings for football season
- Fajita meat sliced into strips made from organic boneless skinless chicken breasts
- premium choice wet aged top sirloin Carnitas ( a hispanic dish).
- Berkshire boneless pork butts cut into 3”-4” chunks
- Bone -In chuck short ribs cut flanken style-another staple for the hispanics but also used for making Korean BBQ
- Smoke Applewood Bacon
- Frrozen wild, sustainably caught seafood. (Think Salmon, Halibut, Chilean Sea bass, Sushi grade Tuna, giant size shrimp from the gulf and Baja Mexico, king crab legs with claws bigger than a man’s fist, and cold water Australian and/or South African Lobster Tails)
Accepting orders for the holidays: Leg of Lamb, Cuts of veal, Turkeys, Duck, (raw and smoked), Hams, Rib and Tenderloin Roasts Caviar Foie gras Compound butters Cuts of grass fed Australian Wagyu beef.

Celebrate the holidays with Chicago‘s most iconic foods like Lou Malnati’s legendary deep dish pizza, Portillo’s Italian beef, Garrett Popcorn Shops® popcorn, and so much more.

For those of us who love to stop by and grab our favorite iced coffee on the go (even in cold weather), hot coffee, or soda and iced tea, let me introduce you to the perfect stocking stuffer this year – Sok-It reusable iced and hot coffee sleeves. Perfectly sized to fit the stocking of everyone on your list. With over 1 million sold, this is a hot product right now!
You’ll discover 24 new styles all under $16 in a variety of sizes depending on what you typically like to order. These are made from thick, insulating, 4MM coated neoprene fabric on its inner and outer sides to provide natural barriers to various elements. In Texas that is everything, especially in summer. No mess to deal with, especially now that so many have stopped using styrofoam cups, which leaves my iced tea cups sweating from January to December. Yes, I said iced tea, because they have ones to fit your soda or iced teas too.
- JavaSok™ cold sleeves fit most major brands like Dunkin®, Starbucks®, McCafé® Cups and many other similar sized cups, and not only retain ice so your beverage stays cold longer, but leaves you happy with dry hands, no mess, puddles or watermarks to worry about.
- HotSok™ sleeves shield your hands from extreme heat and fit most disposable cup sizes.
- SodaSok™ sleeves are just like JavaSok™ but made for your soda or iced tea cups.
- BotlSok™ sleeves are specially made for your water bottles.
The holidays are extra fun because right now you can get your favorites in holiday patterns like my personal favorites, Red Snowflake and Holiday Ornaments. Wouldn’t that be a cute way to surprise the family before your annual car ride to look at Christmas lights? Go grab your favorite holiday coffee or hot chocolate, put on your Sok-It sleeves, and off you go.
Best of all, the sleeves are machine washable, which is so important right now. Win-win!
