ATE – IX

Le Cool Publishing is a completely independent publishing company that is dedicated to creating guidebooks filled with the most awesome underground experiences that reflect the city’s true flavor rather than the “hippest or latest” lemming crap.

I am excited to report that as of this May, the London version was published… putting it in my ninth installment of All Things English.

Designed by Jeremy Leslie at John Brown, A Weird and Wonderful Guide to London is the gateway to a city of freaks and wonders, of the kind you hear whispered about in dark corners, but were never quite sure existed. Edited by Mat Osman, it takes you by the hand and leads you throughout the city, from New Cross to Mayfair, opening closed doors and revealing secrets that might just change your life. 

Here’s a sneak peek…

Buy it or any of the other European cities including Barcelona, Madrid, Amsterdam or Lisbon) here.

Good Cheap Fun

Jake Bronstein recently bought a toy vending machine off the Internet. He filled the toy capsules with ideas of fun things to do and started placing the machine in various spots around New York. For 50 cents you get the original toy, an idea, and a map to guide you to the location for your idea. Each capsule also contains a quarter, refunding half of your purchase price (the machine wouldn’t let him charge less than 50 cents.)  If you find it, please let me know where it is!

Normally, I don’t condone tucking your napkin into your collar unless of course you have the Dress for Dinner Napkins which turn any basic tee wearing man into a Dapper Dan.   Well… that is unless he starts drooling or spilling down the front of himself.
