For this installment of “Artist Eats,” we asked Jim Houser to share his favorite place to eat. Jim is a Philadelphia-based artist whose paintings are the system by which he actively catalogs the images and noises that command his attention. His installations act to create a map of the contents of his head over the course of a particular period of time.

For National Shave Day on December 1, 2013, Harry’s is offering free mustache shaves and a limited-edition razor at their Corner Shop in New York. Located in SoHo, the Corner Shop blends a classic feel with modern grooming techniques. The shop was designed as an intimate space that captures the community atmosphere of the traditional barbershop. But its barbers deliver modern cuts, using an iPad app that enables them to record each customer’s cut and preferences. In addition to an exceptional cut or shave, customers can find unique items in the shop, including Makr leather goods, Bitwell motorcycle helmets, Trusco toolboxes and more. If you can’t make it to the Corner Shop on the 1st, check Harry’s website for a participating barbershop in your area.
