Things to do for October 29, 2009

The Weekender

Psychos, Bar Games and Cold Pizza

The weekend is going as Balloon Boy.

Martini Salt and Pepper Shakers
NOT STIRRED

Martini Salt and Pepper Shakers

You cannot live by drink alone—trust us, from time to time, you must eat. But that's no reason to be separated from your beloved martini shaker—these just store something a little less potent. Or, we suppose, you could use one to make the world's tiniest martini. (Not advised.)

Bar Bingo
GAME ON

Bar Bingo

It's not that you don't play games on a night out; you just don't usually keep score. Which is probably a good thing—but consider making an exception for this pub-friendly take on Bingo. Mark off one square for spotting a number swap, mark off another if you spy a visible thong. (We have no idea what that last one means.) Shouting out "Bingo" is optional, but encouraged.

Psycho Diagnostik Coasters
CRAZY TALK

Psycho Diagnostik Coasters

In general, we'd advise screening potential guests for psychosis before they drop by your place. If, however, you let someone in who's iffy—we know you have your reasons—ask them to place a freshly poured glass on one of these: each one is imprinted with a different Rorschach test, which should give you some clues into whether she's insanely beautiful or just insane.

Vintage Movie App
PICTURE SHOW

Vintage Movie App

Should you ever find that the videos you take on your ultramodern cell phone are just too…modern, consider using this app. It filters them to look like either '60s-style home movies or '20s-era silent flicks. (You can even add a ragtimey piano track.) Which should make any shots of someone falling down extra hilarious.

The Pizza Saver
THE MORNING AFTER

The Pizza Saver

We've all been there—you wake up in the morning and realize you've made a big mistake. Maybe it was that fresh-made batch of moonshine, maybe something even more nefarious—but as a result, you left last night's vaguely remembered pizza out on the coffee table. These bags—conveniently shaped to match your slice—fit like a bespoke suit for your leftover slice.
