Your Perks: 1) Button-ups in so many summer colors and styles, it’ll make your head spin. In a good way. 2) Ultra-insulated flasks, koozies, wedge-shaped ice molds... Basically a bunch of things to keep your beverages chilled. Very important. 3) A contraption that turns alcohol into gas. Seeing is believing.
Things to do for June 11, 2015

The Virgin Hotel Is Doing Stuff Again
The Virgin Hotel just got better again. Weird. Turns out, they just opened a cushy spa with five private treatment rooms, a Turkish hammam, gentlemen’s facials and special boxed-lunch options from Miss Ricky’s. Stay tuned next week for The Virgin Hotel Adds an Underwater Exotic Animal Petting Zoo.
Off the 606: Summer Camping Everything
Bloomingdale Trail Log, 1pm: Nice day, but growing weary. Could use supplies. BTL, 2pm: Stepped off the trail to find Stio, a new outdoor gear store with water-shedding boardshorts, moisture-wicking polos and Hawaiian sandals, known only to exist in Wyoming. Must be a mirage. BTL, 2:15pm: Nope, not a mirage.
You Want Maple & Ash. Here It Is. Ish.
On your list of things you should probably start preparing for: 1) Consuming a bunch of delicious wood-fired things at this weekend’s grilling pop-up from forthcoming steakhouse Maple & Ash. 2) Flag Day. We listed those in order of importance. Hope that helped.
