National Treasures: Enormous Champion

We’re, well, enormous fans of Enormous Champion, a Brooklyn-based design studio from creative couple Jordan Provost and Jason Wong, whose whimsical and well-made creations like this Whales Tea Towel ($25) always put smiles on our faces. Their stationery is amazing, too. We particularly love this letterpress printed, blank “Mix Tape” card ($5), perfect for sending a note just because, and this sweet “Our Love Is Here To Stay” card ($5), which also comes as a limited-edition silk screen print.

Glorious Getaway: The Surf Lodge

With the heat wave hitting NYC, we’ve been dreaming of cool breezes and the white sand of the beach. Hence this week’s Glorious Getaway, The Surf Lodge in Montauk, a boutique property with a casual, bohemian vibe on Long Island’s East End. New this summer is the property’s restaurant Byron, serving prix-fixe brunch and dinner menus designed to showcase the fresh seafood and local vegetables the area is renowned for. While you’re out East, head to the beach in Ditch Plains to watch the surfers and snack on summery treats like lobster rolls at the popular Turf Truck. Need a brunch stop on your way out of town? Check out local favorite Mr. John’s Pancake House and order their specialty, crepe suzette.

Glorious Tunes: Trampled by Turtles

Is there anything more Glorious than a fantastic song? One that makes you smile or dance—a melody that takes you back to a wonderful memory or reminds you of a favorite person or place? We’ve been meaning to incorporate more music onto the site for a while, and so we’ve created a new category called Glorious Tunes, which will feature songs from modern American bands we love. This week it’s Trampled by Turtles, a soulful bluegrass group out of Deluth, Minnesota who recently released their sixth album, Stars and Satellites. Check out their outstanding cover of Arcade Fire’s “Rebellion (Lies)”, one of the performances from the AV Club’s musical web series Undercover. If you like what you hear, take a look at their upcoming tour dates—this summer they’ll be playing cities across the U.S. including Newport, San Francisco, Omaha, and Chicago.
