Your Perks: 1) Up to 59% off new prints from Banksy. Maybe you’ve heard of the guy. 2) A pocket-size charger that’ll keep your devices alive no matter where you are (that includes the beach). 3) 20% off the glow-in-the-dark bike you’ll be riding all summer.
Things to do for May 22, 2014
Crazy Politicians, Bluetooth Bike Locks and a Museum in Your Phone
The weekend eats Mondays for breakfast.
Somebody Give the Future a Raise
You’re riding your bike. You pull over for a cruller. Long john, perhaps. Doesn’t matter. Point is: when you go to lock your bike, you’re forced to use a... key. No more. Because here’s a Bluetooth lock that can be opened using an iPhone app. Pee-wee could’ve used this.
A Tent That’s Probably the Best Tent
Things you look for when shopping for a tent:
1) It should be fire-resistant.
2) It should be over nine feet tall (in case LeBron drops by for a s’more).
3) It should be this one from Shelter Co.
Guess we could’ve led with that last part.
It’s a Sale on Things That Are Nice
Throw out your scarf. Burn your parka. Aggressively stomp on... actually, just head to Wittmore’s online shop. They’ve got all manner of breezy, summery knock-around gear from the likes of Gant Rugger, Levi’s Vintage and Oliver Spencer. Oh, and it’s all 25% off. You thought it might be.
There’s a Met Museum in Your Computer
The Metropolitan Museum of Art just gave you carte blanche access to nearly 400,000 digital images of its mighty collection. So say goodbye to illegally downloading Picasso prints from shady torrent sites. Or don’t, since that’s not really something people do.
Just the Funniest Debate of All Time
You might think political debates are all “3.7% inflation” this and “thousand points of light” that. Well, not in Idaho. If you want to run that gubernatorial gauntlet, you better be prepared to discuss your “master’s in raising hell” and other topics of unintentional hilarity. Anyway, potato people.
