Welcome to The Daily – the five awesome things you need to read (or see) on Playboy.com errday. You’re welcome.

  1. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND SAMMY HAGAR, WE MUST FREE THE FAST LANE


    I was somewhere in West Virginia trapped on a freeway with two lanes going in each direction, following a tan, slow-driving late-90s American sedan. The car had locked up the fast lane for what felt like a series of endless miles when I heard this voice say: Oh for the love of God, free the fast lane, get your goddamn slow-ass over, and let us through!

  2. NEW ORLEANS’ BEST COCKTAIL BARS


    New Orleans is the most celebrated cocktail city in America. In the 1800s spirits from Europe and bitters and fruits from the Caribbean circled through the port city, and apothecaries used them to create some of the first cocktails on record such as the Sazerac and Ramos Gin Fizz.

  3. BALLS OF STEEL: 10 CRAZIEST STUNTS EVER PUT ON FILM


    Tom Cruise has proven his stunt prowess (i.e., ridiculous foolhardiness) time and time again, most notably scaling the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and literally hanging onto a plane for the new Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. Yet while there are still some movies that take an old school approach to stunt work — we’re admiring you, Mad Max: Fury Road — most stunts these days are pulled off with wires and CGI enhancement.

  4. THROWBACK THURSDAY: PICS FROM THE 1990 MIDSUMMER PARTY


    No one can throw a party like Playboy can. Luckily, we don’t have to wait long for the next one since Hugh Hefner’s annual Midsummer’s Party is right around the corner on August 1.

  5. BEHIND-THE-SCENES OF STEEL PANTHER’S “PARTY LIKE IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD” VIDEO


    Steel Panther started out as a glam rock parody group that performed an insanely popular night on the Sunset Strip called “Metal Skool”. Every musician and A-list celebrity in L.A. wanted to sit in on their crazy, anything goes shows.
