ORDER | WILDSAM HAWAII
Our favorite field guide from city to city is back, and this time it’s with that 50th state, Hawaii! Born and bred in Austin, our friends at Wildsam always know how to find the most bodacious bars, radical restaurants and the sure-fire shopping in every state they feature. Sacred shores. Mythical waves. Culture and art. Ecology and culture. Maika’i loa!
We stumbled across an old issue of D Magazine recently (in November of 2019) and we’re sure glad we did. The article How Dallas Saved Fashion History features the most fabulous closet in North Texas (and we think North America if not the world for that matter) that holds 20,000 irreplaceable pieces of our past. When it comes to fashion, this is like nothing we’ve ever seen. One of the most valuable fashion collections in the nation is housed inside a dusty orange building in Denton next to the counseling office at the University of North Texas. The contents are treasures and the story is baffling. We’re headed to view it stat. Hopefully we’ll see you there.
VOTE | AUSTIN MUSIC AWARDS
It’s that time of year again! Band of the year, musician of the year, song of the year, best performances, vocals...the list goes on. The Black Pumas, Gary Clark Jr., Shakey Graves, Bill Callahan, Patty Griffin, and so many more. Oh man, this is gonna be a hard one! So many amazing acts, so much talent and creativity, and all in Austin! We know who we’re voting for - do you? Go rock the vote!
LISTEN | THE 5 O’CLOCK YEAR-END PLAYLIST
Michael A. Muller often makes some of the most creative playlists ever, and this one is special because it’s his own personal choices of his favorite tracks of 2019. The music he chooses is often quite subterranean and definitely not what you’d hear on the radio, which is one of the reasons we love it so much. So while lending your ear you might just discover a favorite new act. Enjoy!
CARRY OUT | ALL TIME
Well, it looks like Los Angeles has blessed us with yet another divine eatery. Owners of our top choice LA (Los Feliz) restaurant ALL TIME have no doubt hit another home run, but this time it’s to go! Located just two doors down, Tyler and Ashley Wells are here to make their dine-in experience one to take home. That means that regulars, neighborhood friends and family all get a chance to carry out the passionately inspired, high standard, quality, cozy experience. Hours are 5-9pm / 7 nights a week. Ordering is via phone orders, walk in to-go orders in person, or online ordering. Doesn’t get much better than that!
Your grandad, your dad, your older brother, your best friend in highschool, your college roomy, your office mate - these choice colognes bring back so much nostalgia, it’s unbelievable. We’re not gonna blow the excitement for you since we want you to have your own fragrant walk down memory lane, but there’s no way we can’t mention Polo Ralph Lauren Green, the quintessential timeless mark of masculinity. The golden polo player adorning the front of the bottle, the golden cap. Can you believe that launched in the 70’s? We’re pretty sure at least one man in our lives wore Green.
