although there was quite the wait for a table, my tastebuds were pleased after the delicious food at cafe gitane. the food is quite easy to make, so ill probably have a go at these at home (especially the avocado toast). the french/moroccan combo is nice and light for the summer. the outdoor seating was my favourite bit, as the seats face outwards just like any authentic french cafe. this facilitates my lurking of the well dressed passer byers.

summers looking up, as the weather is getting more and more perfect! after emptying my pockets and spending all day on st laurent eating (ALL) the street vendors food, i went to say hello to some friends at the snapmag/lookout rooftop bbq at tokyo. a blast and a half. then the boys changed it up for some night time festivities. they clean up real nice, huh?
meet the latest and greatest addition to the cute-objects-i-like-to-keep-on-my-desk club. this little guy is from the happy labbit series (as opposed to the not so happy smorkin’ labbits). mine came with a cigar, tongue, moustache and glasses, and bubblegum. purchased at kid robot in miami.
ms&co is a portland based brand focused on making what they could never find on the market. it started with loafer socks, and now they’ve moved on to sleek and durable selvedge denim sleeves for passports, iphones, ipads and field notes notebooks. all of which is completely made in the usa. ms&co is also working on macbook and camera pouches which im really looking forward to!
battles is a good way to kick off the summer. so upbeat you want to hop out of bed and eat chocolate a sundae for breakfast. this song and video are off their forthcoming album, gloss drop, which comes out on the 7th of june. im noticing a pattern, that everytime summer rolls around and im on a music hunt, new yorkers are always reliable. battles’ mathrock take on tropical sounds comes through most in wall street (mp3). whilst sundome (mp3) has a relaxing echo of island music.
