Here, our top picks for what to do this weekend including cashmere shopping, the detox spa treatment of the moment and our recommendation for a craft beer to kick off Oktoberfest with. What’s on your weekend agenda? Share with us in the comments.
PAMPER: Detox bath treatments are among the trendiest spa services at the moment, so why not indulge this weekend? One of our favorite treatments is the Solange Signature Mudslide at the Spa Solage in Calistoga, California. First you bask in mineral-enriched mud, then your immersed in a soaking tub and finally you get to relax in a state of the art sound chair listening to harmonic music. Visit solagecalistoga.com for more information.
SHOP: With temperatures starting to drop it might be time to do a little bit of sweater shopping (yes, we are right there with you, it's depressing). If you are going to buy a sweater look no further than this sweater by The Elder Statesman, perfect for trendy guys, and for girls who want that 'I stole it from the boyfriend' look. $2,015; available at mr.porter.com.
PLAY: This Friday marks Miniature Gold Day (we kid you not), so why not play a round. Around the World in 18 Holes is a must visit in Lake George, New York, where visitors can enjoy the world without having to get on a plane as each hole represents a different country. This is kitsch at its best people. Beach Road, Lake George, New York; aroundtheworldgolf.com.
DRINK: Oktoberfest kicks of Saturday, so start the weekend right with a craft beer. One of our favorites is Three Floyds Brewing's Dark Lord—a Russian style imperial stout brewed with coffee, Mexican vanilla and Indian sugar. Visit 3floyds.com for more information.
EAT: David Chang is a restauranteur, brilliant chef and an empire builder at this point. His just opened Momofuku Noodle Bar in Toronto is his second foray outside of New York City (his first was in Sydney, Australia). Whether or not you are located near a Chang spot, chow down on a bowl of ramen noodles this weekend in celebration of Chang's success. 190 University Avenue, Toronto; momofuku.com.
WATCH: The Emmy's air on Sunday at 8 p.m. EST on ABC (or if you are like us and only care about the pre-show that starts at 7 p.m.). Grab a group of friends, some truffle popcorn, and plop down on the couch to see who wins (and even more importantly what people wear).
