We’d like to talk about your wrist. And more importantly, what should be adorning it. We suggest one of Skywatch’s stylish Swiss-made chronographs—discreet and precise, like a good bank account. We’re also hooking you up with a rock-star-worthy weekend at New York’s luxuriously decadent Gramercy Park Hotel.
Things to do for June 30, 2011
BBQ, More BBQ and... Bob Hope
The weekend is an all-star salute to your liberty.<br />
Coast-to-Coast BBQ Rubs
Somewhere out there, your meat has a soul mate. One possibility: meat rubs crafted specifically for states’ most famous smoked and grilled delicacies, like East Texas brisket or Lexington, North Carolina, pork. Consider it your patriotic duty.
80% Off Summer Gear at Blackbird
We’ll just say it: that linen suit isn’t buying itself. It may, however, present itself at a steep bargain—specifically, at this sale, where you’ll get 20% to 80% off warm-weather chinos, sweaters and shorts from A.P.C., Robert Geller and Gant Rugger. You wouldn’t want a self-buying suit anyway.
Like a Pocket-Sized BBQ Assistant
This weekend, go ahead—give your barbecue support staff the day off. Filling in: an iPad app with personalized recipes, a shopping list generator for said recipes and a timer that tells you when to turn your ribs. You’ll still need a grill... for now.
Wearing Bob Hope’s Cufflinks
You’ve become a staple on the USO tours. You’ve traveled with Bing Crosby more times than you can count. And now, for an extra spot of charm, you can pair Bob Hope’s actual cufflinks with your tux. Better start working on those Oscar monologues.
Momofuku: The Magazine
Momofuku: tasty restaurants. Home of crack pie. And now—a magazine. New York noodle visionary David Chang has rounded up some of his buddies (yes, Bourdain) and joined forces with McSweeney’s to bring you Lucky Peach, musings on food, life and, this issue’s theme, ramen. Which needed a literary movement.
