Things to do for April 18, 2013

The Weekender

Reggie Jackson. Andy Warhol. Foosball.

There’s no wrong way to eat a weekend.

Warhol. Basquiat. Burroughs. This Book.
BEHIND THE SCENE

Warhol. Basquiat. Burroughs. This Book.

Ah, New York in the ’80s. Partying with Andy Warhol and Basquiat. Jazzercising with Bianca Jagger. If your memory’s hazy (perhaps because you were 3), here’s this portrait book from a photographer who actually did those things. It’s basically a yearbook of every icon from that era. Awkward inspirational quotes not included.

How About a Great Sale on Jackets
SALE-ING

How About a Great Sale on Jackets

You might not think you need a new jacket today. You also might not think the vanguards of dapperness at Bench & Loom would give you 20% off their Levi’s Vintage leather jackets, Dehen cardigans and Woolrich parkas. But you should. Because that’s exactly what they’re doing. Well, and running a business.

Mr. October’s Jersey, Now Your Jersey
HAVE A BALL

Mr. October’s Jersey, Now Your Jersey

Reggie Jackson. You know him. Hit three massive homers in Game 6 of the ’77 World Series. Also: he was wearing a jersey when it happened. And it’s now up for auction, along with a bunch of other significant sports memorabilia. Which is great if you like that stuff. Or need a new softball outfit.

Portable. Cardboard. Foosball.
FOOS GOLD

Portable. Cardboard. Foosball.

You’re a big fan of German engineering. So you’ll be glad to know some table-sports-loving Germans just engineered an environmentally sustainable, portable foosball table. It’s made of wood and cardboard. It has an iPhone dock that amplifies your music without electricity. It... has a website that’s all in German. So have fun with that.

And Now, a Postcard Made of Solid Iron
GOING POSTAL

And Now, a Postcard Made of Solid Iron

Fact: everyone loves getting postcards. Littler-known fact: there’s a guy in Hong Kong stamping out postcards made of solid galvanized iron with his bare hands. Which is... peculiar, sure. But also pretty perfect for letting friends in faraway lands know you’re thinking of them. And thinking, “Hey, an iron postcard.”
