The Weekender

McQueen, Veal Cheeks and Captain Ahab

The weekend is about to go 16-0.

McQueen’s Race-Day Gear
BARBOURIANS

McQueen’s Race-Day Gear

Steve McQueen: the type you’d follow into the German forest on a motorcycle. Also: the type who knew a thing or two about how to wear a jacket, like the heavyweight waxed numbers in this McQueen-inspired collection by the rugged jacket virtuosos at Barbour. American flag lining: check.

Fantasy Football on Your Phone
FINAL FANTASY

Fantasy Football on Your Phone

There’s really only time in the week to properly attend to five of your fantasy lineups. For the sixth: this app, which feeds you matchup analysis and all sorts of other advanced stat-ery to help you decide who you’ll start from week to week. It’s cheaper than having a staff.

Making the Best of Veal Cheeks
THE REST

Making the Best of Veal Cheeks

Anyone can slap a bone-in filet on the grill and have it come out delicious. But it takes a really talented chef to make a gourmet meal out of goat spleen. A talented chef, or this cookbook. You’ve always wanted to be a veal cheek expert.

Hearing Belichick Talk About Beyoncé
WISH GRUNTED

Hearing Belichick Talk About Beyoncé

Bill Belichick: you could listen to that reassuring monotone all day. This app will oblige, with ringtones, motivational speeches and three-minute, unfiltered insights from your favorite NFL players and coaches on everything from handling the Cover 2 to Beyoncé’s pregnancy. Bill’s got quite a bit to say on that.

A Place to Buy Sweaters and Dogs
SITE-INGS

A Place to Buy Sweaters and Dogs

Sure, you could think of this as the end of summer. A better way: sweater season. Hence the new version of designers-of-everything Shipley & Halmos’s site, which now makes their entire collection of anoraks, Ahab-worthy toggle sweaters and... class rings available. Also: a dog. Which they may not have designed.
