Watch Jimmy Kimmel Drink a Margarita Out of the Stanley Cup

Jimmy Kimmel's Stanley Cup margaritas

It’s time to play a game called “What Can We Do with the Stanley Cup?”

L.A. Kings players Justin Williams and Alec Martinez — who scored the Cup-winning goal against the New York Rangers on Friday — visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday night with the giant silver trophy in tow.

Lingering on the side of the set: Phil Pritchard, whom the Hockey Hall of Fame has designated a “keeper of the Cup,” there to tell Kimmel what behavior is and isn’t allowed with the iconic award.

After learning he cannot use the Cup to wash a dog, steam vegetables or decorate his car, Kimmel asks what should have been question number one: “Can we line the rim with salt and make a big margarita in it?”

As the crowd cheers, show regular Guillermo rolls out a cart with tequila, lime juice, limes, salt and a big pitcher of ice. Turns out Guillermo is our kind of bartender (read: heavy-handed), pouring nearly an entire bottle of tequila into the Cup before Kimmel adds lime juice.

Clearly, that’s not enough alcohol for a proper victory cocktail, though. “Add a little bit more of that tequila,” Martinez says to Kimmel, gesturing at a second bottle, which the late-night host dumps into the drink.

Williams stirs the mixture with a spatula — a very traditional way to blend margaritas, Kimmel jokes — before all four men slurp up the drink through brightly colored straws. “That’s very good,” Kimmel pronounces.

Watch the men make and drink the massive margarita in the clip below:

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
