This week we tuned into Marc Maron interviewing Michael Rappaport. The conversation started with city pizza preferences. The topic popped because they both now live in LA but Maron spent years in NYC and Rappaport was born and bread on straight 80’s hip-hop culture. Pizza is a cultural thing as much as it’s a quick food hit. Even though they netted out thinking the war is bunk, since artisanal food culture has made everything really good in most major cities, we still like the idea of drawing a line in the marinara. This Pizza Battle T-Shirt will do just the trick the next time we have to fly to Chicago. Although, you wouldn’t catch me wearing this in Naples. Those guys will take a life for an offense of this magnitude.

We’re a sucker for a good pun. That peeps was a double pun. We met Witty Gritty, Meredith & Melinda the mother/daughter team behind the designs, a couple weeks ago at the Renegade Craft Fair’s Brooklyn edition. With Father’s Day right around the corner we couldn’t help but serve up this gem to treat your pop to a pop card. There’s a few other awesome options the ladies have on tap for dad’s special day. Plus, they have a catalog for just about any occasion you need a “snail mail” somethin’ somethin’ for the someone.
Do you have an amazing vegetarian mother-in-law like me? Perfect. This card is one of our favs. Spotted in Dépanneur Brooklyn last year we held onto this gem until the high holiday of mother’s rolled back around. Drop this I Eat My Vegetables Card atop a basket of hand picked, farmers market fruits and veggies and you’ve got yourself a Mother’s Day mic drop.
It’s summer. You are, or should be, on the grill every weekend if not every single night. What’s a guy (or gal) to do with such an over zealous summer cooking ritual you might ask. Step 1 is to make fast friends with your butcher. Step 2 is to get some Blue Q BBQ Socks. Roll up those pants and throw on a pair of flip flops for max exposure. These socks say, “Not only am I grilling up some tasty craziness, but I’m a little crazy myslef.” We encourage you to mbrace that. At least until Labor Day.
Threadless ran a Ferris Bueller design contest a few weeks back and this Abe Froman Logo T-Shirt was our hands down favorite. We lagged a bit in posting this and the purchasable site is now no where to be found. Everything seemed to be on a super limited time offer. None-the-less we though you needed to know about this gem. We did find the designers website and the buy link below will take you to his Threadless entry page. Maybe we can coax them to do a reprint.
