Things to do for July 14, 2011
Seinfeld, America and Your Dad

Dad: you’ve got to love him. So much in fact that you’d like to put his priceless vacation photos on the Internet. Which reminds us: there’s a new Tumblr where baggy neon shorts, Segways and fanny packs can finally be appreciated. Or relentlessly mocked all over again.
For Sale: Seinfeld’s Mountain Estate
Your two biggest problems in life: figuring out what to do with that extra $20 million and finding a decent weekend ski lodge. As per usual, Jerry Seinfeld is here to help—his Telluride estate is on the block. Because when you think mountain man, you think Seinfeld.
