It's hard to find good gloves. Especially handcrafted, touchscreen-friendly ones made from things like lamb leather and cashmere. Especially-especially these ones from Quill & Tine, artisan crafters of rather stunning, rather phone-friendly gloves that you'll need to get you through winter. Which is too bad (for anyone not with Perks).
Things to do for January 31, 2018
Five Courses in Black-Tie, Beachside Burgers and a Major Porsche Retrospective
And We Haven't Even Gotten to Your Super Bowl Plans YetBy Hadley Tomicki
Aussie Burgers With Beach-Adjacent Beers
Santa Monica's Little Ruby starts its happy hour tonight. So now you can chase your beach trips with 2.5 hours of Bondi burgers, discounted drafts, wine, pasta and spicy Italian sausage. Guess mid-winter heat waves do have their advantages.
All Rihanna, All Night
Tomorrow night, you're taking friends to an all-Rihanna dance party at Los Globos. Four DJs will rule the night, playing cuts, remixes and associated tracks from the dancehall diva. Everyone will be powerless to resist. Where do you find these things?
One Massive Porsche Retrospective, Coming Right Up
You're going to a museum this weekend, just to admire Porsches. The Petersen is going to be stuffed full of the German automaker's most iconic cars, both from the track and notable collections. You may need to watch your speed on the way home.
You Will Not Starve During the Super Bowl
Let’s review Sunday's play: You're dropping by Josiah Citrin's Charcoal to grab a package with smoked lamb ribs, grilled wings and coal-roasted shishitos for home. Or you're headed to the Hideout by STK for a big outdoor tailgate with frozen Moscow mules, short rib grilled cheese and a halftime show. Go long.
One Enchanted Evening at Carondelet House
Just a few things you'll find at Nuit Blanche on Tuesday and V-Day:
1) A five-course, black-tie dinner.
2) An Italian-inspired villa.
3) Unlimited open bar.
4) Uninhibited dancers and performers.
5) Inner peace. Maybe. Hopefully.
What Else Is New
This Airbnb Is a World-Class Submarine in the Bahamas
And it's only available to a select, deserving few. Speaking of deserving... we hereby present you with the world's smartest golf ball, which tracks its own velocity, spin speed and more technical things. Finally: care to try this tequila that's been aged in Napa Chardonnay barrels?
