Things to do for October 31, 2013
JFK, Slingshots and the Perfect Pizza
The weekend is taking a walk on the wild side.
JFK: The Yard Sale
John F. Kennedy. Now there’s a heck of a guy. Who was a heck of a president. Who had a heck of a lot of his stuff turn up at this online auction. Like his monogrammed gold watch. His golf balls. And his presidential rocking chair. Presidential pitcher of iced tea not included.
Finally, an Office-Friendly Slingshot
There’s only one way to describe a slingshot with a solid walnut base, a custom handle and an industrial rubber band that’s also monogrammed with your initials. And that’s... business-casual. Yup. Got a business-casual slingshot here.
Unionmade Is Feeling Blue
Midnight. Navy. Cerulean. Ultramarine. What they have in common: they’re all shades of blue you look good in. Your brothers-in-dapperness at Unionmade know this, so they’ve contracted a dream team of clothiers to make you things like shirts, sweaters and blazers in every conceivable indigo hue possible. Except maybe periwinkle.
Some Mathematically Perfect Pizza
Breaking pizza-related news: a British mathematician just developed a formula that would essentially eliminate burnt crusts, soggy corners and topping-less bites from pizza. Math: finally making itself useful.
The Story with Dinner. And Cocktails.
For the Thirsty: The experts at Schiller’s Liquor Bar have a new four-volume boxed set on
making better Manhattans, juleps, sidecars and pear-jalapeño margaritas. So, essential reading.
For the Hungry: Brooklyn’s institution of deliciousness Roberta’s just unveiled a tome with recipes like corn with ’nduja and purple basil. Sounds delicious.
