2001-A-Space-Odyssey-Immersive-Art-Exhibit

Fifty years ago, one of the most compelling, original, and genre-defining sci-fi movies of all time hit theaters. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of 2001: A Space Odyssey, how would you like to step inside the penultimate scene? That’s right, for a limited time (4/8/18–5/28/18) the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in D.C. is home to an exhibition that allows you to enter the bright white hotel room from Stanley Kubrick’s iconic film. “The Barmecide Feast” by Hong Kong-based British artist Simon Birch was created in painstaking detail, so you can step inside the room and snap the sweetest selfie ever. We imagine tickets will go fast, so if you’re in the nation’s capital and want to visit, check the link below for more details.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
