Whoo buddy, that cold front has really moved in! There’s nothing quite as magical as the first few days of winter…until your lips are so chapped you’re pretty sure they’re going to fall off. Anyone have product recommendations for seriously chappy lips?
Here are recommendations for what to read, listen to, eat, and do from my adventures this week.
READ. This thoughtful analysis of Trumpian economics.
LISTEN TO. The story of Ian, who hustles truffles to top chefs in NYC. Sounds weird? It is. And totally fascinating.
EAT. The croissant breakfast sandwich at Cherrywood Coffeehouse. I don’t know why it tastes so good for such a simple sandwich…but it’s damn tasty. Cherrywood is a popular, neighborhood coffee house, so the parking lot is always full. Don’t be deterred! There are plenty of tables inside and out, and the kitchen works quickly even during peak times.
DO. Love board games but don’t always want your brain to be reduced to mush? Takenoko is the game for you! It’s got everything: simple rules that are easy to pick up, cute pandas, good replay value, and plenty of strategic options. It’s going to be a great game for post-Thanksgiving feasting when we’re sitting around with our pants unbuttoned lamenting that we ate too much.
