Things to do for March 28, 2013
El Bulli, Nashville and Leather
Buy the weekend some peanuts and Cracker Jack.
The Chatroulette of Online Photography
There’s a new iPhone app called Rando. It’s basically Chatroulette, but with photos. You take a picture of yourself—or your dog, or Bill Murray’s dog, whatever—and it’s anonymously sent to a random person using the app. In return, you’ll receive pictures from other random users. Nothing could go wrong from there.
Get a Nice Shirt. Pay for Half of It.
Nashville’s Imogene + Willie make tough-as-nails plaid shirts like nobody’s business. But in terms of going on sale... they don’t really do that. Except now. They’re taking up to 50% off a bunch of their shirts and such. You love a good such sale.
El Bulli’s Wine, Now Your Wine
El Bulli. They did crazy-famous things with food. Now, imagine their wine collection. If you’re picturing thousands of rare varietals guarded in a Fort Knox–like cellar... you’re close. It’s actually all getting auctioned off over the Internet right now. Putting them in your own Fort Knox–like cellar: recommended.
Meet Your New Leather Goods Guy
This is the story of a man named Keegan. What Keegan does is spend his days hand-stitching belts for you in Los Angeles. Well, belts and wallets. And key chains. And phone cases. And... basically anything that’s better off being leathery. Then you buy it. And that’s it. End of story.
Coasters. Made of Concrete. Huh.
Coasters: they protect you from the scourge of condensation. These coasters: they do that, and they’re made of solid concrete. And engraved with enlightening infographics about different beers. So... there you go.
