Ask the MB: Proper Bedding

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?
--Don


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: Overstock.com 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 50¢ 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.

Negroni

The classic Negroni is simply equal parts gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. You can do better.

  • 5 parts Plymouth gin
  • 2 parts Campari
  • 1 part Pimm's No. 1 Cup
  • 1 part sweet vermouth
  • 1 part dry vermouth
  • 2 dashes of orange bitters

Quick shake or stir and pour into chilled Martini glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
