Things to do for April 19, 2012

The Weekender

Jack Nicholson. Legendary Ice Cream. Leather.

Don’t call the weekend Shirley.

Buying Jack Nicholson’s Aspen Manse
ASPEN EXTREME

Buying Jack Nicholson’s Aspen Manse

File this under “Historic Aspen Homes That Jack Nicholson Just Put Up for Sale for $15 Million.” (That old file.) Yes, the same mountainside place where Hunter S. Thompson and Captain Eyebrows himself once waged a prank war on each other can now be yours. So there’s that.

Like Sending Your Books to the Spa
LEATHER REGIONS

Like Sending Your Books to the Spa

No offense to your bookshelf, but we noticed something that, for lack of a better word, is unforgivable: none of your books have been custom-bound in leather by the same master craftsmen who stocked the White House library. This ends now.

A New Restaurant from the elBulli Guys
BULL MARKET

A New Restaurant from the elBulli Guys

You remember elBulli. That infamously magnificent restaurant in Catalonia where reservations were as elusive as seats for cookie tastings in the Keebler Elves’ treehouse. Well, the old elBulli chefs are about to open a new, (slightly) more... accessible spot in Cadaqués. Still, Godspeed.

Your Closet Could Use Some Japan
POST WASTE

Your Closet Could Use Some Japan

Ah, Japan... home of karaoke. Sushi. The creepiest game shows ever. Also, these chino sack coats, patchwork hunter jackets and button-downs from Tokyo’s own Waste(Twice), which are now available stateside at Hickoree’s. It’s no Treadmills and Cookies, but it’ll do.

A New Cookbook. For Cooking Ice Cream.
CREAM EFFORT

A New Cookbook. For Cooking Ice Cream.

Red Hot Banana. Bourbon & Cornflake. Elvis, the Fat Years. You guessed it: all ice cream flavors. More specifically, the kind you’ll only find at damn-near-legendary San Francisco cream house Humphry Slocombe. Unless you pick up their new ice cream cookbook. Then you’ll find them in your kitchen, too.
