Things to do for June 09, 2011
Barbecue, British Boots and Musical Wine
The weekend is setting a record high.
An Army of Online Experts for Hire
Sure, similar sites have crossed your path, but you live by a simple credo: you can never have too many online servants. This site sets you up with remote helpers willing to do pretty much anything for between $3 and $30. That includes telling Anthony Weiner to stop messaging you.
The Tunable Wine Glass
Finally, a chance to make music with wine. This stemware comes with levels marking an A note, a B note and so on. All you have to do is rub your finger along the rim to play the note... and fill up enough glasses to play “Don’t Stop Believin’.”
Playing Cards from the Chateau Marmont
You’re familiar with the Marmont—the palatial LA hotel that’s been home to brilliant gents from Howard Hughes to... Keanu Reeves. So, finally, they’ve gotten down to what’s important: playing cards. Specifically, these handsome purple ones, with silver edges. Your bridge circle will be very impressed.
Your Guide to the Best Barbecue Meats
Your grilling technique: immaculate. Your black-tie apron: delightful. All that’s left: finding the perfect meat. This coffee-table tome guides you through sourcing the best there is—and as a bonus, it equips you to butcher any wild meats you may come across. Wild sausages tend to be the easiest.
The Next-Level Brogue
Just in time for your semiformal beach volleyball tournament, British cobbler Jeffery-West unveiled a new batch of neo-traddish footwear, including triple monk straps and ornate brogue boots straight from the classic British cobbling center of Northampton. It’s what Michael Caine would want for Father’s Day.
