Ask the MB: Proper Bedding
Q: I am updating my room and I need to find some magnificent new bedding. Could you recommend any sites or places to shop?

A: Of course. Any place you spend 8 hours sleeping and an additional 2-3 minutes for occasional extra-curricular activities needs to be fully MB-ed. Here are our recommendations:

Comforter: is the best place to find a comforter. Down, of course. Great selection and you can find exactly the size and warmth level you want.

Pillows: Ikea. Simultaneously cheap and good. Down, of course. Grab a 50ยข hot dog on the way out.

Sheets (summer): High thread-count Tencel from Bed Bath & Beyond. This is made from the pulp of eucalyptus trees, and has a very pleasant "cool" feeling on a night when the A/C is on the fritz.

Sheets (winter): It will be here before you know it. High thread-count cotton from Target. People swear by this stuff and we're with 'em.



Old Fashioned

  • 1 raw sugar cube
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 3 oz bourbon

On bottom of Old Fashioned glass (what else?) dribble bitters on sugar cube. Muddle. Fill with ice, then with bourbon. Garnish with lemon twist. No, not a thick orange wedge, handful of cherries, or a cup of fruit salad. A simple lemon wedge.
