The Weekender

For Your Weekend Consideration: Hemingway, Models and Frozen Deliciousness

Today is the first day of the rest of your weekend.

A Place Called Stag Is Having a Sale
STAGGING RIGHTS

A Place Called Stag Is Having a Sale

You remember Stag. That Austin-based slinger of handsome miscellany (and the occasional rum-scented candle). Well, they’re having a sale now. The 30% to 60% off kind. The kind with Burkman Bros oxfords. The kind with red-striped shorts from Jack Spade. The kind with... a bunch of other stuff, too. You love that kind.

A New Hemingway Novel. Kind Of.
IN ERNEST

A New Hemingway Novel. Kind Of.

Hemingway... World War I vet. Lion hunter. Taker of drink. Wasn’t bad with the words, either. Speaking of, you’ll want to grab this new edition of A Farewell to Arms, complete with a personal foreword from Hemingway’s son and all 39 alternate endings. Indecisive. We forgot to mention he was also indecisive.

If You Don’t Like Models, Don’t Bother
MODEL ROCKET

If You Don’t Like Models, Don’t Bother

You like models. Models are great. Sometimes they wear things. Sometimes they don’t. But one thing will always remain constant: there’s always going to be a veteran fashion photographer named Chris Colls around to take pictures of them and put them on his new Tumblr. Or so it would seem.

Soft-Serve Fruit. Delivered. Do This.
TUTTI FRUITY

Soft-Serve Fruit. Delivered. Do This.

There’s this place in New York. They make soft-serve fruit (it’s like soft-serve ice cream, but... fruit). They also make popsicles and fruit pies. Same principle there. Anyway, they’d like to deliver you a wooden crate full of the stuff. Banana. Mango. It’s all there. You should eat some. It’ll be delicious.

How to Hide Things in Your Phone
STASH AND BURN

How to Hide Things in Your Phone

Some things are your business and your business only. Take, for instance, the things you choose to store in this new hidden-compartment thing that’s disguised to look exactly like an iPhone. Just open it up and stash away. No one will ever know where to find your... keys. And whatnot.
