Welcome to the future: where you’ll glide to the beach in a sleek, gasless electronic bike called the Jetson. Where your iPhone doubles as a remote-controlled camera, taking your conference calls to the next level. Where your mom wakes up to a diamond watch flown in from Paris. The future is now.
Things to do for May 10, 2012
Kate Moss, Spinning Whiskey and a Dead-Serious Lighter
Don’t take that tone with the weekend.
Kate Moss Lost Her Clothes
Last week, we told you about a little online auction at Bonhams. For clothingless pictures of Marilyn Monroe. This week, we’re telling you about a little online auction at Bonhams. For clothingless pictures of Kate Moss. No need to make this complicated. Just thank us and move on.
Upping Your Old-School Baseball Game
Those old-timey baseball guys from the ’30s really nailed it. The showmanship. The man bloomers. The looking unnecessarily creepy on baseball cards. The baseballs themselves weren’t bad, either. Like this one: a late teens/1930s Official League Ball with red-and-blue thread and a hand-drawn logo. Unrelated: man bloomers. Do it.
Just a Golf Tee That’s Also a Shot Glass
Tell you what’s ridiculous. The fact that golf tees don’t double as shot glasses. That’s what’s ridiculous. And since you already know where we’re going with this, here it is... the Silishot, a bendy, flexy shot glass made out of silicone, that you can also drive golf balls off of. Finally.
A Dead-Serious Lighter. Dead Serious.
Your camping checklist: something to sleep in. Something to make you less sober. And something to light everything on fire with (or maybe just s’mores). Regarding the latter, consider this little stainless-steel number complete with extra flints and a spare fuel tank. In case you plan on... going through a lot of s’mores.
Like a Merry-Go-Round for Whiskey
Ridiculous shot glass: check. Whiskey glass that looks like a dreidel: not check. Enter this damn thing. It’s a rocks glass that’s designed to gently roll around on its base and release anything that needs releasing from your whiskey. Aromatics. New flavor profiles. Krakens. Wait...
