Things to do for March 15, 2012

The Weekender

Leather. Banksy. Fire. This Is Your Weekend...

Beware the ides of the weekend.

A Thorough Look at Your Music
TUNE-UP

A Thorough Look at Your Music

It happens. You’re strolling down the street—sun on your face, tunes in your ears—when you totally forget the chorus to “Whip My Hair.” Never again, with this app feeding you lyrics from and tweets, bios and news about the artist you’re listening to. Turns out Willow is Will’s kid... Who knew.

Steak-Rubbed Beef Jerky
THE JERK

Steak-Rubbed Beef Jerky

Every drive you take. Every movie you watch. Every green beer you do or do not drink... all things that go better with some form of steak. Enter this: beef jerky made with a blend of garlic, pepper, coriander and dill seed. Coriander is the hallmark of any great dried meat.

Watching the World Burn... Sort Of
GLOBAL WARMING

Watching the World Burn... Sort Of

We believe it was Alfred the Butler who once said, “Some men just want to watch the world burn.” Presumably, he was talking about this steel fire pit in the shape of our fair planet. Australia has always had a way with s’mores.

Leather from the Hermès Leather Guys
LATER, GATOR

Leather from the Hermès Leather Guys

Hermès. Gucci. Ralph Lauren. All folks who know a solid piece of leather when they see it. And so you may want to acquaint yourself with their tannery, now out with a handsome line of belts and wallets (both alligator) and weekend bags (from gators or bison). You know, if you celebrate weekends.

Buying Banksy’s Art
THE GIFT SHOP

Buying Banksy’s Art

Purchasing an entire warehouse: a little too far to go to own a Banksy. The next best thing: this auction of signed screen prints from him, Shepard Fairey and a bunch of other street artists. Many of which come in easy-to-hang canvas form.
