Java Sleeves Go Green

If you're getting your java in a to-go cup, we implore you to at least forgo the sleeve! Mildly superfluous, don't you think? But if it's too hot to handle, why not cozy up with one of these chic, reusable coffee sleeves conceived by artist, Michelle Czulada. Hand sewn from repurposed fabrics, they are eco-friendly themselves and serve an eco-friendly purpose. Washable and one-size-fits-all. We'll drink to that!

Best of the Best

We joke around in the office that our Best Of issue, which is coming up in June, should be called the “Best Places Our Friends Told Us About” issue—because the most valuable tips always come word of mouth. First, we start with our own personal list collected from the past year and then we start polling the people whose opinions we respect, for everything from their new secret spots to their perennial favorites. Finally, we fan out and give everything a try. To be honest, the hardest part isn’t coming up with the ideas, but whittling it all down. Playing favorites can actually be a rather painful experience.
