If we told you we predict that you’re not going to open a single bottle of wine this summer, you’d call us... something unsavory. Probably “dum-dum.” If we told you that’s because Perks has a highly advanced device that lets you pour wine without pulling the cork, you’d... probably nod in agreement and then apologize for before.
Things to do for May 25, 2016
There Are Just So Many Ways to Enjoy This Holiday Weekend. Here, Let Dakota Johnson Help You.
The weekend is manning the grill.
Now You Swipe Right on Art Exhibits
You: Tinder for art exhibits? Really?
Us: Yeah. You just tell them your location and what you’re into, and you’ll get a list of art shows in your general area. Just swipe to add them to your city’s map, and take it from there.
You: Have we reached the golden age of swiping?
Us: We think so. We really think so.
Bob Dylan in 75 Bob Dylan–y Words
As you probably definitely already know, yesterday was Bob Dylan’s 75th birthday. We celebrated by superimposing 75 relevant words over a portrait of his face. Why, how did you celebrate?
At Long Last, a Kooples Webshop
Yeah, the Kooples was kind enough to bring their handsome Chelsea boots and suede motorcycle jackets stateside a few years ago. But now you can browse said items from the comfort of your Internet. And that just makes this whole situation so much better.
Every Summer’s Jam Since ’66
Elton John and Kiki Dee’s “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.” Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger.” Nelly’s “Hot in Herre.” Yep, you got it. All their respective year’s UD-declared song of the summer. And should you be wondering what the other 47 summer jams of the past 50 years are, we’ve compiled them for you right here. Oh, the sweet nostalgia.
Keep a Single Eye on Rami Malek
We first noticed Malek back in 2010. Then, well, he sort of fell off the world’s radar for a few years. But now, after a couple films and one too many red-carpet appearances just sartorially crushing everybody else, we’ve decided to declare him an icon on the rise. The acting. The perfectly tailored everything. The clashing patterns working together. Felt only right.
If Memorial Day Sales Could Speak
“We’re doing 20% off classics like linen button-downs and deconstructed blazers.” —Knot Standard
“50% off boots with the code ‘MDAY50’ over here.” —Tretorn
“Our up-to-50%-off situation lives on. Just now with more Margiela and Dsquared2.” —Ssense
“25% off Gant Rugger, Officine Générale and other good brands (through June 5) sounds about right for us.” —Wittmore
“Is it weird that we’re all speaking right now?” —Knot Standard
This Weekend: Dakota Johnson, the Return of Bloodline and Some Damn Good Poetry
And then there’s the UD Five, wherein we share what we’re most excited to imminently watch, read and listen to. We’ll use our three-day weekend to read Ocean Vuong, binge on season 2 of Bloodline, read what one might call alternate American history and catch A Bigger Splash (pictured), from I Am Love director Luca Guadagnino. Join us. Put that extra day to good use.
