Your Perks: 1) A concentrated blend of electrolytes that cures hangovers. This is important. 2) A handheld, portable espresso machine that requires zero electricity. 3) A build-your-own Bellini kit including four bottles of Collalbrigo prosecco, the same brand that was used in the original Bellini. Your brunch just got historical.
Things to do for July 03, 2014
Eating Smoked S’mores. Buying a Town. Having a Big Weekend.
What light is to the eyes, what air is to the lungs, what love is to the heart—the weekend is to the soul of man.
Your Razor Loses to This Razor
Multiple Choice (pick one):
What would happen if you crossed a Baxter of California razor with a tiny version of a Base Camp X axe?
1) A custom Blue Steel razor with a handle made of Appalachian hickory wood cut and shaped by hand.
This should be easy.
’50s and ’60s: Great Sunglass Decades
The British eyewear virtuosos at Kirk Originals have been doing sunglasses for nearly 100 years. Which is a lot of years. And they just launched a new collection inspired by some of their ’50s and ’60s creations. Think thick frames, neutral colors and Italian acetate. The best kind of acetate.
Welcome to the Land of Smoked S’mores
S’mores are good. Really good. Almost seems like they can’t get any better. Unless, of course, you procured this kit with homemade marshmallows, homemade graham crackers and a small-batch semisweet chocolate bar that has been cold-smoked over alder wood for 10 hours. Which you’re about to do, obviously.
You Can Own a Town. A Real Live Town.
For Sale: Swett, South Dakota.
Population: 2... for now (they’re moving out when you buy their town).
Included: One garage/tire shop. The Swett Tavern. The (only) house. A 1990 Volvo semi.

The Internet: Totally into Street Art
Turns out, someone (okay, it was Google) just put together an online interactive map of street art from all around the world. Yeah. Interesting. You can browse through existing collections or search by location and artist. Hey, Banksy’s on there. Weird.
