    Garden Party

    Some say you should wear a hat, while others insist on teeny, tiny sandwiches. But as far as we’re concerned, the only thing you need to throw a garden party is an outdoor space, and a few gals willing to don floral silks and sip on fruity drinks. This isn’t mission impossible.

    Flower-beards: A Hot Trend? Or Death Sentence?

    The wake for Tyler started at six o’clock, which was going to be difficult for me to make on time. My part of the eulogy was scheduled for six thirty and even that was pushing it. My Brompton fold up bike was stolen outside of the Royal Palms Shuffle Board Club in Gowanus last night, and thusly I needed to borrow Lucians’ handcrafted Almond longboard if I was going to get there in time...

    Man Versus Machine

    A long time ago, I read Robert Pirsig’s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. My takeaway: Most individuals favor one of two approaches to life: the romantic or the classical. The former is attracted to aesthetics, the latter, mechanics. The trick to achieving the utmost quality of life, posits the author, is to strike a balance between the two.
