The new MTE (Mountain Edition) collection flips the classic waffle into a lug sole, adds waterproofing to the outside and warm fleece linings inside. Top it all off with a heat retention layer between the sockliner and outsole, and your feet will stay warm and dry through the seemingly endless cold season.

All About a Patty Melt

patty-melt

The prices for some of these things in NYC are crazy, but I guess that’s what you have to pay for delicious. I was first introduced to the patty melt during a brief semester at Ole Miss, and the craving for this burger topped with onions and cheese, crammed between two slices of rye doused in butter, and finished in a frying pan has never relented. If it’s on the menu, it’s being ordered.

“This was never wet before”

creek-california

A random benefit from last month’s earthquake in Napa Valley? Water. Lots of it. Seems all that shaking in the earth opened up fissures in the rocks that have allowed massive deposits of groundwater to reach the surface, turning once parched land into pockets of green. At one creek north of Vallejo, an estimated 200,000 gallons of water are flowing daily down the tiny waterway into the bay. Like all good earthly things though, the surplus is bound to stop. As one hydrogeologist said: “There is only so much water in there. As the water table lowers, the water flow diminishes. It’s like a bank account. You’ve just reached into the bank account and borrowed some money, but the spending spree will eventually end.”

Lunchtime Laughter

I tried to find a supercut containing Joan Rivers’ greatest disses, but sadly it does not exist. So you’ll have to make due with this clip from 2002 where she jokes about old age. Joan Rivers was a fearless lady, and one of the last public figures to be given the freedom to shit on those who needed to be shat on. With her passing at the age of 81, the world is now a safer place for celebrities… and that’s not necessarily a fun thing. She will be missed.

Openings & Parties: Promiscuities

This past Wednesday we co-hosted a party at Le Baron with Selectism for Jonathan Leder’s new film Promiscuities, starring Amy Hood. As one would expect with a sexy film, the crowd that gathered at the downtown club was nothing short of stunning.
