Meet Mike LaVitola
Each week, we check in with a different member of Thingtesting's community to ask what brands they've spotted, what they're testing, and take a peek into their recent reviews.
Know a tastemaker who loves to try new things? Submit their name here.
Hi Mike, please introduce yourself.
What’s a brand you’ve recently spotted?
Porter Road. Think of Porter Road as your neighborhood butcher shop, no matter where you live.
What are some brands you've recently tested?
Ghia + Topo Chico in your nicest cocktail glass is a Tuesday night I'd sign up for any day.
Both refreshing and relaxing, Recess is perfect for an afternoon reset at work or to wind down after a long day. A splash or two makes a great cocktail mixer, too.
Spice House is my one-stop-shop for stocking up my pantry - they’re just around the corner from me, another Chicago business!
Pineapple Collaborative is one of those go-to staples I’m constantly reaching for whether I’m sautéing veggies, drizzling over pasta or dunking warm hunks of focaccia.
