Things to do for May 17, 2012
Scottish Beer, Italian Lingerie and Dean Martin’s Car
Welcome to the weekend, we’ve got fun and games.
Owning Dean Martin’s Custom Ride
You and Dino have a lot in common. For one: that policy of waiting out inclement weather. For another: you’ll be driving his car. Yes, Martin’s pre-owned Ghia L6.4—one of 26 models custom-made for the Rat Pack and their circle—is currently up for sale. No need to adjust the presets.
Beatles. All Over Your Coffee Table.
Beatlemania in France. You really missed out. This British newspaperman didn’t. And now he’s turning the lesser-known, more-intimate highlights (read: that hotel pillow fight in Paris) into something compelling for your coffee table. Or extremely heavy for the beach.
Ice Cream Sandwiches. Pinup Girls. Go.
It wouldn’t be summer without ice cream. And it wouldn’t be ice cream without pinup girls. (Work with us here.) You’ll find both at the new online shop from Santa Monica’s Beachy Cream. They come in sandwich and calendar form. Guess which one’s which.
Ordering Scottish Beer Off the Internet
If you drink beer and use the Internet, congrats: Scottish microbrewery BrewDog is getting into the online selling-things game. The upshot: triple-frozen stouts, quadruple-hopped IPAs stronger than just about anything else out there and other flavors deemed too daring for US sale. Prep your cooler accordingly.
La Perla. 40% Off. (We Mean the Price.)
Frilly things. Lacy things. Frilly and lacy things. This sale has all those things, all from the legendary Italian lingerie maker you know and trust for such matters. If only it came paired with a card that sings Barry White when you open it.
