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.
Things to do for April 20, 2016
Your Weekend Components: Peaceful Models and MC Bernie Sanders
How deep is your weekend?
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
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.
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.
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.
Ball and Buck and Ledbury Need You to Take Their Stuff
Ball and Buck: Offering up to 75% off
shirts, pants and gloves fit for hunters, mariners, commandos and other badasses with great taste in
Ledbury: Through Sunday, they’ll take 30% off purchases of $350, 25% off when you spend $250 and 20% off $150. They’ll do all the math.
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
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.
