We thought you needed a change of scenery... so we booked you a room and dinner for two at a Michelin-starred restaurant in Napa Valley. (Hope you don’t mind.) Then we saved you a seat for an epic feast in Manhattan, at Le Cirque’s LES pop-up restaurant. Get packing.
Things to do for August 11, 2011
St. Barths, Emergency Cocktails and Rock 'n' Roll
The weekend has quadruple-A credit.
A Sarcastic Font. Great.
Sarcasm: totally awesome. But not always recognizable in, say, an email. The solution: a new, backward-italicized font, designed to help people get when you’re being ironical. Hey, it’s better than adding “just kidding” to every sentence.
Big News from Your iPod
Chances are, you’re listening to music right now. And chances are, if we told you that the band you’re listening to were downstairs right now, playing a concert right now... you might be interested in that information. That’s basically what this app does. Note: not applicable if you’re listening to Bach.
A Boozy First-Aid Kit
Some people might say the word “emergency” is a little strong for times when you need a drink. Others... would not. Hence, this emergency cocktail station. A first-aid kit of bottles, a shaker, glasses and tools for your next life-threatening gimlet shortage.
St. Barths on Your Coffee Table
There’s only one volcanic, French-controlled island in the Caribbean that can call itself your favorite. Still, St. Barths is a close second. And now, there’s a book about it, full of photos of flawless beaches and stories from locals about, well, flawless beaches. We’re also holding out hope for treasure maps.
