San Pellegrino, the maker of the sparkling fruit drinks in the pretty cans, has recently released an app and it’s actually kind of amazing. The app has researched hole-in-the-wall and newly opened businesses in several major cities and has created a travel companion that will let you know when you might want to take a detour to one of these fun stops.
You use it like a mapping app, but instead of just directing you from A to B, Delightways alerts you to places to visit and things to do along the way, from architecture to food trucks. The app is available for iOS and Android.
WHAT’S TRENDY. Leandra Medine, a.k.a. the Man Repeller of blog and internet-fashion fame, has announced a collaboration with Atea Oceanie, designed with the working lady in mind. These pieces borrow a lot from classic styles and shapes, but have a definitively modern touch that will keep you looking work-appropriate and style conscious at the same time. My favorite thing in the line is the Hepburn Blazer, a slightly oversized double-breasted blazer that won’t overwhelm your frame. It is a rich shade of navy, and I think this is a piece that will stand the test of time. Find the whole line at AteaOceanie.com.
WHAT’S AFFORDABLE. Next month’s Art at Lunch at the Morris Museum of Art is a topic that any local history or architect aficionado might enjoy.
Matthew Davis, the director of the Old Governor’s Mansion in Milledgeville, Ga., will be in town to discuss architectural similarities between Georgia’s antebellum state capital governor’s mansion and the Old Medical College in Augusta. Lunch will be provided, and the event begins at noon on July 22. Paid reservations – $10 for museum members and $15 for nonmembers – must be made by July 20. For more information, call (706) 724-7501.
