Things to do for June 23, 2011

The Weekender

The Beatles, Whiskey and Sinatra's Jag

The weekend fought the law and the weekend won.

Linda McCartney’s Rock Shots
LOVELY LINDA

Linda McCartney’s Rock Shots

Your stint with Wings was brief. You didn’t come away with many useable photographs. Fortunately, Linda McCartney had you covered—and now you can enjoy rare photos of Mick Jagger, John Lennon and the like, collected into a retrospective of her work, signed by her husband. We forgot his name.

Sending a Message with Your Tie Bar
BAR NONE

Sending a Message with Your Tie Bar

There’s no reason that your tie bar should say “Freedom” on it. There’s also no reason that it shouldn’t. Which is why you’ll have Uncommon Goods create a custom, sterling silver tie bar with your own personal message on it. Because people should know.

Cruising in Sinatra’s Jag
NICE CAR

Cruising in Sinatra’s Jag

You’ve been looking for a weekend car ever since you bought Sammy Davis Jr.’s Rolls. Frank Sinatra’s Jaguar seems like a natural fit. Julien’s Auctions is offering up Ol’ Blue Eyes’s British saloon car, Duke Ellington’s contract and one of Marvin Gaye’s gold records. Which he’d probably want you to have.

Keeping Your Toys Up to Date
THE DECIDER

Keeping Your Toys Up to Date

This week: you buy the fastest laptop on the market. Next week: a faster model arrives. With teleportation. For next time, there’s now a site that uses complicated algorithms to predict when you should pull the trigger on a gadget. You’ll be glad you waited when the smartphone-hovercraft debuts.

Leather for Your Whiskey
INTO LEATHER

Leather for Your Whiskey

It’s a fact. You don’t have a vegetable-tanned leather whiskey holster. We’re not sure how you’ve managed this long, but finally, relief comes in the form of a handsome two-strapped model from San Filippo. You know why.
