Where-Chefs-Eat

The issue with Yelp and other restaurant review sites and apps is that you’ve entrusted plenty of fools with helping you decide where to eat. You really want dudes who reviewed the hot dogs at 7-Eleven to chime in on your dining experience? With Where Chefs Eat, you’ll get restaurant picks from people who legitimately know food. With locations chosen by 400 of the world’s top chefs (seriously it’s like a who’s who of the culinary world; people like Ferran Adria, Daniel Boulud, April Bloomfield, Rene Redzepi, and many more), you’re guaranteed to get some good grub. Besides simply naming some good noodle joints or where to grab breakfast, the book is full of entertaining quotes, maps, and added advice. Plus, since it is published by Phaidon, you know it will look sharp on your coffee table.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
