The Weekender

Crazy Politicians, Bluetooth Bike Locks and a Museum in Your Phone

The weekend eats Mondays for breakfast.

Somebody Give the Future a Raise
LOCK TALL

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
SHELTERED LIFE

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
DECENT EXPOSURE

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.

Memorial Day Sale at Wittmore (through May 26 with promo code “Memorial25”), online now

UD Hookup: And if you’re picking up a new swimsuit for summer, you’ll want to go ahead and take 30% off instead. So u​se code “UD30” at checkout, and that’ll happen through May 30.

There’s a Met Museum in Your Computer
MET IT 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
DEBATES MOTEL

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.
