The Weekender

Fat Electricians, Postcards and Bunnies

No shirt, no shoes, no weekend.

Steak: It’s What’s for Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, you’re thinking beyond the turkey—by flanking your game bird with assorted chops, ribs and filets from Robinson’s Prime Reserve. $65 gets you $100 of the same premium meats that presidents, royalty and rock stars have enjoyed. Which works out, considering your Thanksgiving guest list (we’re looking at you, Bush Senior).  

50 Years of Scantily Clad Bunnies
BUNNY TALE

50 Years of Scantily Clad Bunnies

You’ve always been a bit of an animal lover. Your global efforts on behalf of the platypus speak for themselves. So when a definitive book comes out about the history of bunnies, that’s something you’d be inclined to read. And if those bunnies should be of the half-naked Playboy variety, that’s all right too.

Smelling Like a TV Repairman
ODOR EATER

Smelling Like a TV Repairman

The fresh smell of sandalwood. The essence of a summer ocean breeze. A crisp citrus bouquet. This is not that. What you’ve got here is the bottled-up stench of wires, fuse boxes and six-day-old jumpsuits. A cologne that smells like Fat Electrician, which can’t be any worse than your bottle of Gaunt Plumber.

Judging a Postcard by Its Cover
COVER STORY

Judging a Postcard by Its Cover

Typically, when you go on vacation, it’s no calls, no messages, and the only visitors you’ll accept are masseuses from somewhere Scandinavian. But when word needs to get back to the mainland, you opt for the understated postcard. These, for example, feature the 100 most iconic Penguin book covers. A much more visually appealing set than the most iconic table of contents.

The Social Media Sobriety Test
ACCESS DENIED

The Social Media Sobriety Test

Nothing good has ever come out of using a computer while under the influence (except Print Shop, which was clearly the product of heavy narcotics). Which is precisely why you need to download this safeguard that will force you to pass a field sobriety test before accessing things like Facebook and Twitter. Start by typing the alphabet backwards.

Clothes for Getting Your Hands Dirty
CITY SLICKER

Clothes for Getting Your Hands Dirty

You have the perfect outfit for rugged weekending. Another for the office. And yet one more for the gym (amazingly, all three are tuxedos). But when you really need to do things outside (those cattle can’t herd themselves), you’ll want to dip into these workshirts and jackets from denim titans Levi’s and Native American blanket peddlers Pendleton. Cowboys and Indians, together at last.
