You can spot a tourist a mile away in any city. Fanny pack—check. Stuffed JanSport backpack—check. Insanely large fold-out map—double check. We say, give us a couple names of areas and then we’ll wander around and stumble into some watering-holes and nifty looking shops. To display our way of travel we found these City Neighborhood Maps from These Are Things. Each city print showcases the basics of what you need to know when traveling. Going to DC? Here are the areas, now go explore and enjoy (okay, might need to check on the bad spots first). Each is made by hand and is far better to put on display in your home than a pullout from Fodor’s. Besides, what would an adventure be without some surprises?
If you don’t have a cigar cutter on hand when you want to light up a cigar you need to get all MacGyver with it. And since a cigar cutter isn’t part of the average everyday carry collection, this can happen often. Instead of adding another item to your already packed pockets consider having your knife pull double duty. The Cigar Cutter Pocket Knife packs a cigar cutter right in the handle. Pair that with the long-lasting AUS-8 stainless blade and you have a tool that will assist in small chores and in enjoying a cigar when you’re done with them.
