This Weekend: Sinatra, Supermodels and Chocolate

The weekend’s wearing nothing but tinsel and a smile.

Owning Frank Sinatra’s House
YOUR WAY

Owning Frank Sinatra’s House

Another day, another palatial Frank Sinatra estate on the market in California. This one’s where the Chairman had a legendary meeting with a president whose name rhymes with Pennedy. Also: you’ll make a couple million dollars a year in movie-location filming. Alert your tax guy.

Jalapeños, Covered in Chocolate
CHOC IT UP

Jalapeños, Covered in Chocolate

 When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade. And when life hands you other stuff, you dip it in chocolate. These people feel the same way. Hence these jalapeño peppers that have been lovingly handpicked and dipped in Belgian goodness. The best kind of goodness.

Supermodels Reenacting the Advent

There’s always a lot of discussion about what Christmas is really all about. This video advent calendar of supermodels dancing, smiling and occasionally spanking themselves should put a definitive end to that discussion. (Hey, they’ve got to work their way off the naughty list somehow.)

LaFrieda on Your iPad

Pat LaFrieda. Yeah, you know the guy. Well, he’s bringing the sum of his meat-related knowledge to your iPad with this app. It’s basically a definitive butcher’s guide on cuts of meat, preparation techniques and knife-sharpening videos. You know, for intimidation.

A Twitter Feed for Your Fantasy Team

Your fantasy football team: in the playoffs. Time to go all-in. This app connects you to your Twitter feed to give you quarter-by-quarter updates on every player on your team. And yes, it’ll be with you for basketball and baseball season, too. (No word on fantasy curling.)
