city-neighborhood-maps

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?

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
