Heritage Bicycles | Lakeview - Chicago, IL.
This is the store I wish existed when I was a commuter/messenger. Beautiful bikes, amazing product, and kick ass coffee. Be sure to try their orange spice latte.

Seth Putnam, Editor of The Collective Quarterly
My friend Seth has been working on something amazing this past year. He, along with two other talented guys, put together a magazine centered on the creative process. It’s called ‘The Collective Quarterly' and each issue they travel to a new city with a group of artists.
Issue Ø is based in Marfa, Texas and if you watch the video below, you can see the places they go and the people they meet. Already in the first issue they have met a saloon keeper with an eyepatch, rowed across the Rio Grande into Mexico, and went cliff diving in Rogue Territory denim.
After talking to Seth and thumbing through the magazine I can already see how this is going to be different. You won’t find lists concerning which top 10 trends to watch, or full page underwear spreads stuck in the middle of an article about best ways to cut in line at a bar in Williamsburg. This is journalism done right. Great articles, beautiful imagery, and stories about real people, in real cities.

Talking @collectivequarterly with @sethjputnam.
An outstanding band at one of my favorite venues in Chicago. Big things on the horizon for these guys. Keep your eyes (and ears) peeled.

The Dove | Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Consistently voted best restaurant of Tortola, The Dove boasts one of the extensive wine menus I have ever seen. The French cuisine focused menu is fantastic and exceeds many of the French restaurants in the states.
I can say with confidence, they served the best pork belly I have ever had. If only it didn’t take 2 flights and a ferry to get there…
Fun with the Fuji XP60 underwater camera.
