The Weekender

Sexy Polaroids, Pub Games and The Jerk

The weekend is keeping its Heisman.

Fall Gear, Caught Fresh
BEYOND THE SEA

Fall Gear, Caught Fresh

Ah, fall in New England. The leaves, the sweaters, the never-ending rain and wind and storms. Avoid all that and drop by this new RI-based online shop, with rain-ready Relwen jackets, coats from Gant and flannel button-downs from Wharf’s own original line. In other words, fall: the shop.

Tastefully Nude Polaroids
OVER EXPOSED

Tastefully Nude Polaroids

You’ve always loved a good comeback story. Take Polaroid, for example. Made extinct by the digital camera, yet now potentially sitting on the precipice of a return to grace. And like many good comebacks, this one involves pictures on the Internet. Of underdressed women. Captured on self-developing film. Why Polaroid ever went away is beyond us.

Steve Martin’s Twitter Feed
STEVE-O

Steve Martin’s Twitter Feed

Actor. Author. Professional banjo player. But enough about your moonshining uncle. Steve Martin has joined Twitter. So far, his feed has consisted of book plugs and comically offensive apologies, but we’ll assume he’ll be giving up the dirt on Alec Baldwin in no time. Turns out, Alec killed a hobo.

Introducing the Beer Boot
DAS BOOT

Introducing the Beer Boot

You can almost smell the hops, barley and freshly dry-cleaned lederhosen—yes, Oktoberfest is finally here. Your new weapon of choice: a giant glass boot. Big enough to hold three cans, two bottles or one foot. We’d recommend not using it for one foot.

Pub in a Box Collection
THE GAME

Pub in a Box Collection

You’re out with some friends. And it’s happening again: no one can agree on which obscure English pub game to play next. Sure, you could risk another skirmish between the Cribbage and Nine Men’s Morris factions, or you could whip out a portable boxed set that contains them all. That’s right: even Draughts.
