Things to do for August 22, 2013
Coffee, Cameras and Cake Made with Beer
<em>Weekends Can’t Jump</em>
Camping. With Really Good Coffee.
Stumptown Coffee. Yeah, that’s the stuff. Anyway, they’ve just created this little wilderness-survival bag filled with an AeroPress, a hand-crank grinder, two mugs and a bag of their fresh-roasted coffee. The idea is that you take it with you camping. And then you drink it.
This Is a Train. This Is Art.
You know how trains work. You know how art galleries work. Great. That’ll make explaining this next part a lot easier. See, James Turrell, Beck, Ariel Pink and Dan Deacon (to name a few) are riding the rail from station to station, hosting pop-up art exhibits. Interesting, we know.
A Camera Phone Without the Phone
Taking pictures. Hard work. You’ve got to point, shoot and upload to Instagram, Facebook or, yeah, probably just one of those two. Anyway, you need something to make your life easier. Enter: this waterproof, shockproof 3G camera that automatically uploads photos straight to your social networks. Remember, this is not a license to selfie.
The Best Little Massive Sale in Texas
The dapper gents from Stag have declared open summer sale season on their Life/After/Denim shirts, Venroy boardshorts, Penfield button-downs and more. But they’re also giving you another 25% off everything if you type “25MORE” at checkout. So probably do that.
Cakes. Made from Beer. Hello.
Breaking craft beer cake news: there’s now such a thing as craft beer cake. First, you need the mix (that’s this stuff). Then you need to bake. And voilà: you’ve got chocolate stout cake. Or cocoa porter cake. Or a vanilla ale cake. You always knew this “beer” thing had potential.
