Things to do for June 28, 2012
Whiskey and New Pants: Sounds Like the Weekend
Drop and give the weekend 20.
When Times Square Was Sketchy as Hell...
Times Square. Basically... it’s a s**tshow. A Bubba Gumpified, Naked Cowboy-y s**tshow. But it used to be different. Early-’80s different. Sex-shops-and-back-alley-peep-shows different. And thankfully, a photographer named Bill Butterworth took over 200 pictures of that stuff. And put them in a book. Thanks, Bill Butterworth.
You’re About to Climb Everest. Sort of.
You’re about to go on an adventure. A fake adventure. Like virtually climbing to the top of Mount Everest.
Or sprinting through the desert. It’s via a new fitness app that simulates grand adventures in the name of
dramatically increasing your ab count. Hopefully by at least sixfold.
60% Off Shorts and Things
Don’t take this the wrong way, but you’re wearing clothes all wrong. Not a huge deal, but we thought we’d throw out a quick fix anyway. It’s C’H’C’M’. They’re knocking off up to 60% on things like red cotton twill shorts and long-sleeve striped henleys. So yeah, start there.
Stocking Your Bar with Glorious Things
Once upon a time, there was Prohibition. And then it ended. And immediately after, a distillery called Tuthilltown Spirits opened in New York. The moral of the story: that same distillery just opened an online shop full of leather flasks, Aztec chocolate bitters and whiskey-aging barrels. That’s your cue, by the way.
Rock Stars’ Stuff. Now Your Stuff.
Roger Waters once had a Fender guitar. Mick Jagger once had a tambourine. And Kurt Cobain once wore a Sonic Youth T-shirt during his last live performance ever. Turns out, those things are at Bonhams now. And you’re about to bid on them. Or not. Your call.
