The Weekender

El Bulli, Todd Snyder and Some Sort of Jam

Nobody move or the weekend gets it.

Jam from a Really Old Grocery Store

So California’s oldest grocery store finally got itself a website. Only took them 132 years. But still, at least now you can load up on honey-truffle mustards, tapenades, pumpkin butters and other picnic-y treasures from Napa without trekking out there. Not that you have a problem with trekking out there.

Todd Snyder + Champion = This
ON THE SNYDE

Todd Snyder + Champion = This

When you were a kid, you probably wore shorts. Cotton ones. With the drawstring. Probably some sweatshirts, too. But you probably didn’t look as good as you will in the ones Todd Snyder just made with Champion. Because he’s really good at sewing. Also, because back then you were 12.

One Tough-Looking Briefcase
CARRYING ON

One Tough-Looking Briefcase

Here we are. Mid-July. You’ve got places to go. People to see... Probably. Who knows. What we do know: you’ve now got these head-turning aluminum briefcases resembling World War II fighter planes that you can open and close in dramatic fashion. Or just pack.

Four Sales. Four Really Good Sales.
FOUR CRYING OUT LOUD

Four Sales. Four Really Good Sales.

The gods of handsomeness have smiled upon you this weekend. How so:
Billy Reid: Taking 60% off suits and getaway-worthy canvas bags.
Wittmore: Giving you Gitman shirts for a song.
Union: Meeting you halfway on Yuketen boots and Stone Island jackets.
Hickoree’s: (Insert your own way of saying “very good sale” here.)

El Bulli in London. Yes, That El Bulli.
BULLI FOR YOU

El Bulli in London. Yes, That El Bulli.

This weekend, someone might mention something about food. At which point, you’ll say, “Oh, speaking of food, the Somerset House in London is hosting an interactive behind-the-scenes exhibit on the most palate-altering restaurant in the last millennium, El Bulli.” Congratulations, you just started a conversation.
