We are huge fans of Phin and Phebes ice cream. Not such big fans of this election. WTF. It’s like Mark Burnett was put in charge of running things. Ice cream has always made everything better. Nobody knows that better than these ladies. Partnering with Madewell, they took a stand and started the Phin and Phebes Pints of Positivity campaign. Show your colors. Join the movement. Wear some schwag with pride. Ohh, and don’t really vote ice cream. Please vote for one of the primary candidates we don’t need any more skewed election drama on poll day.

Bryan Sculthorpe had us locked at last years Renegade with his 10×20 inch “stacked” series. Family Time spoke to us loud and clear. Bryan has some new illustrations this year. Pizza being our favorite. He even branched out into pins this year. Hard to say “no” to all his work but we need more wall space first.
More finds from Renegade. IN COMPANY PAPER is a husband + wife duo from Astoria. We love Queens and love their designs. We’re also dead suckers for food trends turned into wearable. Add some gold and Missus Tasty goes manic. This avocado toast pin screamed birthday gift for my vegetarian mother-in-law, all but the egg. It’s the perfect brunch accessory. Every foodie should have this at the ready for that last minute Sunday Funday text.
I’m of the philosophy that if you’re not lucky enough to be currently eating cheese, you may as well as be thinking about the next cheese you’re going to eat — a little advance preparation never hurt anyone, right? And if you’re spending your time thinking about the next cheese you’re going to eat, then it better be something more exciting than your weekly ration of chèvre from the grocery store. (Although I do love you, weekly ration of goat cheese from the grocery store.) What better way to think about the next cheese you’re going to eat than with a handy and oh-so-pretty visual guide? Enter the Charted Cheese Wheel, this cheese-shaped cheese chart of the 65 best pressed curds of milk from around the world is for both the established and aspirational experts among us. Not seeing some of your faves? (I’m looking at you, époisses). The chart’s tiny drawings, color coding, and category breakdown will help you expand your aged milk horizons. I, for one, am going to shake up my weekly dairy run with some new varieties of goat cheese. I wonder if my grocery store carries pantysgawn? (Trust me, just click the link).
While we’re on the topics of BBQ and Hawk Krall this week. Daniel Delany, of Briskettown fame, contracted a limited edition Delaney Barbecue T-Shirt for his smoking hot (literally) bbq empire. It’s limited edition run all but sold out as quickly as Daniel’s fried chicken pop-up feast did last summer. We’re hoping Hawk and Briskettown will do a re-release this summer or collaborate again sooner than sooner.
