EAT | Worthy Burger
We never thought a burger cooked over a hardwood fire would taste so notably different from any other amazing burger we’ve had. Add in fresh, local ingredients and a side of Wagyu tallow hand-cut fries though, and trust us, there’s no going back after this. Worthy Burger in South Royalton, Vermont is a game changer. Whether you’re getting the beef, fish or chicken, it’s hard to compete with what they dish up.
What can someone else’s biography teach us about ourselves? Apparently quite a lot, which Jenn Shapland teaches us in her book, My Autobiography of Carson McCullers. After discovering the iconic author's letters while working at a library, Shapland throws herself into learning more about the life of McCullers from a viewpoint that was often buried by historians. Although not an exclusive story about the writer of The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, it tells the story of two different women connected through time, and gives Carson McCullers a chance to be seen in a way she wasn’t able to be when she was alive.

LISTEN | Wimberley by Jesse Woods
Fellow Texan, Jesse Woods, was a recent accidental music discovery and we’re thrilled we stumbled upon him. His newest album, Wimberley, displays his well-balanced mix of folk with a touch of country that pays homage to his southern roots. Gentle and sometimes dream-like, his music is beautifully crafted, and we suggest throwing this on the next time you hop into your Spotify.
WATCH | Untold: Crimes & Penalties
A crime family. A hockey team. The FBI. It sounds like a fictional drama but it’s actually a documentary on Netflix, Untold: Crimes & Penalties. This episode of the series explores the Galante family whose patriarch bought a hockey team for his 17-year-old son, and although you can assume chaos ensues, the level of disorder is beyond imagining. The true story of a Connecticut family and what happens when they go unchecked is worth the watch and definitely worth the share here.
