It’s Mother’s Day Flowers Time

Dear Mom,

These flowers were grown on the side of a volcano. Some kind gentlemen hiked up and cut them so I could have a dozen delivered to you fresh in time for Mother’s Day. I mean, volcano flowers. What a world.

... is a thing you might write in your card.

They Come in Peace. And They Are Beautiful.
PEACES OF APRIL

They Come in Peace. And They Are Beautiful.

Axl sat down. Kanye’s mic shorted out. And it was predictably hot. By now you’ve experienced the high- and lowlights of Coachella either in person or on everybody’s Instagram. As everyone gears up to do it all over again for weekend two, let’s just focus for a moment on beautiful women looking Coachella-ish and flashing peace signs. Why, can you think of a reason to not do that?

Defending the Length of One’s Tie
IT’S A TIE

Defending the Length of One’s Tie

There’s a serious debate raging in America. It’s all about the length of a gentleman’s tie. We figured it’s time to clear up the issue through a hyper-intensive breakdown of the dos and don’ts of letting your necktie extend below your waistline. National harmony is just a read away.

Honey. On Draft.
FOR THE LOVE OF HONEY

Honey. On Draft.

There are various ways to pour honey at home:

A) From bottles.
B) From bottles shaped like bears.
C) From a beehive in your kitchen.
D) From Flow Hive, a personal draft system for honey on demand.

Anything that’s not B or D is the wrong answer.

BAR FROM HEAVEN

This Could Only Improve Your Cocktails

We get it. You’d hate to see a big old thing about strainers that look like Mexican wrestling masks, cherrywood muddlers, black-diamond-encrusted mixing spoons and other really beautiful bar tools that will make your cocktails better. Totally get that. So whatever you do, don’t see this.

Perhaps You’ll Make History at the Watergate
A LOVE/GATE RELATIONSHIP

Perhaps You’ll Make History at the Watergate

The Watergate Hotel holds an(other) important place in American history, because you’ll be staying there once it reopens in May, taking your pick of over 2,500 whiskeys in its new bar and dining on foie gras from a Fat Duck alum. The ensuing scandal could roil the establishment.

Father John Misty Will Help You While Away Your Weekend
THE UD FIVE

Father John Misty Will Help You While Away Your Weekend

It’s time for the UD Five, that thing where we discuss what we’ll spend the weekend contemplating and listening to and watching. This week, these include Father John Misty’s Instagram (pictured), PJ Harvey’s controversial new album and MC Bernie Sanders.
