This week, you’re getting 25% off swimsuits, ties and other warm-weather gear from Lake Como’s Mitchumm Industries. (Clooney’d be proud.) Plus: framed letterpress prints of whiskey, pork and other refined essentials from the Southern gents at Bearings, and majestic, hand-painted animal heads from White Faux Taxidermy. Your walls deserve Perks, too.
Things to do for March 21, 2013
Sinatra, Lake Tahoe and Copenhagen
The weekend’s putting it all on North Carolina A&T.
A Ton of Famous Stuff for the Taking
Today: a great day for new spring clothes. Like a suit from Frank Sinatra. Or a jacket from Steve McQueen. Or... any of the 815 iconic artifacts up for grabs at the Hollywood Legends auction. You can also pick up original photos of Marilyn Monroe wearing... a bedsheet. It’s really never a bad day for that.
Wearing Lake Tahoe at the Beach
You’ve probably never been told, “My, that’s a nice vintage photo of Lake Tahoe on your pelvis.” (Probably.) But Orlebar Brown aims to fix that. Namely, by putting a classic Slim Aarons shot of some Tahoe sunbathers on their new swimsuits. Funny how that works.
A Couple Noma Guys Want to Feed You
You know Noma. It’s your go-to for 20-course, Michelin-starred power lunches (booked three months in advance) in Copenhagen. But now, two of its sous-chefs started their own place: Bror. It’s the same expertly foraged Danish food, but slightly more casual. And slightly more called “Bror.”
Corkscrew, Meet Finger Gun
At some point in the future, you and a date may drink some wine at your place. And to drink that wine, first you have to open that wine. Problem, meet solution: this absurdly wonderful brass molding of a finger gun... with a corkscrew hiding in the barrel. Nothing could possibly go wrong after that.
Just a Huge Online Depot of Good Stuff
Here’s what you have here: fancy bitters. Bacon peanut brittle. Sri Lankan cinnamon. Pasta noodles shaped with bronze molds in Italy. Just a huge treasury of things that make your mouth water, your taste buds tingle and your cocktails go down a little easier—all shipped from Brooklyn. You knew Brooklyn would be involved.
