Your Perks: 1) A sleek carafe that uses charcoal to naturally mineralize your drinking water. (It’s an ancient Japanese thing.) 2) A summer six-pack of rich, crisp, Tuscany-bred Chianti—for $105. 3) A Perks-approved deal on any work of art at Crated—the Internet’s newest art gallery. A little culture never killed anyone.
Things to do for July 10, 2014

You miss 100% of the weekends you don’t take.
Where Dad Jokes Go to Live
“Last night, I dreamed I was a muffler. I woke up exhausted.” What you just read was a dad joke. And there’s, like, infinity more where that came from on this new site called Nice One Dad. Nice one, Internet.
Your Hand Was All Alone Until This
The problem with baseball gloves: nothing. But if someone (say, the baseball glove whisperers at Nokona) were to pair up with someone else (say, the fine folks at Shinola) and produce an entirely unique, handmade glove just in time for the MLB All-Star Game, it’d be... still not a problem.
A Pool for Everyone and No One
An artist just built a random pool in the middle of the Mojave Desert. To enjoy it:
1) Retrieve GPS coordinates and pool key from the MAK Center for Art and Architecture in West Hollywood.
2) Follow coordinates to middle of desert. (After they finish some repairs.)
3) Make mirage jokes.
