Courtesy of the fine folks at Inside Hook, we present an appetite-whetting sample of their 37 Things a Man’s Gotta Do This Summer. Head over to Inside Hook to see them all, and get your calendar for this summer sorted the hell out.
BBQ pit fiends Hill Country have launched a large format whole-hog dinner for groups of 10, complete with their signature sides (green bean casserole for the win) and gloves for pulling that smoky pulled pork right off the bone. Best part: Inside Hook is giving one away. Tag a friend in this Instagram post to enter.
Take beaucoup rare brews from a murderer’s row of craft breweries, including Dogfish Head, Ommegang, Lagunitas and Blue Point. Pair it with grub from an equally impressive restaurant lineup featuring Gramercy Tavern, Luke’s Lobster and The Vanderbilt. Then have as much as your heart desires of both. Good Beer? Try great.
Summer is definitively not a season for sitting on one’s ass. Unless that ass is perched atop a bike saddle, canoe bench or other seat from which one can navigate a vehicle through space and time.
Herewith: eight new means of transport to ferry you about your adventures this summer, from a surfer-approved golf-cart alternative to a hog designed by Keanu Reeves to JFK’s sailboat. Ride on.
Fitbits, Apple Watches, Jawbones—activity trackers abound, gents. And they’re no longer limited to your wrist space. The new wave of wearables attach to your favorite sports implements (racquets, boards, clubs, etc.) to give you real-time feedback on your form and efficiency.
Never reaching further than Ogunquit, ME (“a picturesque beachside hamlet, where sand stretches farther than you can see and the lobster rolls are the best you’ve ever had”), because your schedule doesn’t allow it, Inside Hook also profiles where to eat, stay, and chill in the Berkshires (“the hippie Hamptons,” where you’ll fine “high and low culture, indoor and outdoor diversions — all the above”); the Hudson Valley (“picturesque, romantic, relaxing”); and Montauk (“a bit of respite from the typical Hamptons hubbub”).
