Resolutions: easy to make. Less easy to keep. So we’re setting you up with Fitbit, a wireless personal training device that tracks every calorie you burn, even the ones from lifting a martini glass. We’re also throwing in six gratis months of Premium Membership. Go ahead, have an extra martini.
Things to do for January 13, 2011
Korean Tacos, Swedish Jackets and Famous Movies
The weekend’s other car is a snowplow.
Little-known sartorial fact: not including the reversible tuxedo/windbreaker suit, the plaid oxford shirt is the most versatile piece of clothing you own. Add a vintage varsity jacket and you’re pretty much good to go for anything. Except maybe formally attired speed walking.
A Museum for Movies Reopens
Our national nightmare has finally ended. At long last, the Museum of the Moving Image is ready to reopen its doors. $67 million later, the renovated space has a 10,000-square-foot garden, 267-seat theater, private screening room and state-of-the-art Michael Bay expressionist wing.
The Swedes know a thing or two about keeping warm in the winter. It’s why you always make sure your thick wool fleeces are made in Scandinavia by Fjällräven. It’s also why you always keep at least one Elin on speed dial.
The Kimchi Taco Truck Launches
You can trace the success of the food truck back to several key factors. Its speedy service. Its financial ties with the Styrofoam industry. And its culturally diffuse cuisine. Which, starting Monday, includes the South Korean version of tacos, falafel and cheesesteaks. You’ll tell your kids about this someday.
Paella Night Comes to Cuba
These days, you only venture out at night for the main essentials. Toothpaste. Single-malt scotch. And a gigantic squid-ink-infused paella. On Wednesday, Cuba will go ahead and pair your dish with a gratis glass of wine, which, as you know, has natural warming properties.
