Camp Orenda
Nestled on 40 acres of lush Hudson Valley backcountry, Orenda boasts private canvas cabins with plush queen beds and wood-burning stoves. By day, ride trails on horseback or white-knuckle it down whitewater rapids. Check it out.

Run by former Del Posto sommelier Mike Zima, SommPicks is your go-to source for rare wines and spirits. Zima sources bottles from all over the globe, and his inventory might be the best you’ll find stateside. Check it out.

Think of this as an online Rolodex filled with two million of the world’s most powerful and influential people. And not only does it contain comprehensive info on these one-percenters, it helps connect you to them as well. Check it out.

Lingerie Fashion Week
In honor of New York’s delightfully busty Lingerie Fashion Week (for which we’ve got a bead on some discounted tickets), we highlighted three lines of lady’s unmentionables you should have already purchased. If not, do so now. Check it out.

Surf Style
The laid-back sartorial leanings of wave riders are enjoying a moment, and we’ve got gear from boardshorts to tanktops to technicolor shoelaces to help inject a dose of beach cool into your city wardrobe. Check it out.

Carolina Clambakes
Culinary salon City Grit is now bringing full-service clambakes straight to your door. Or a beach. Or a park. You choose the location and rally a group of friends; CG takes care of the logistics. Bon apètit. Check it out.

And from our “Boats and Drinks” Division…

Summer Cocktail Quarterly
You could use a drink. Well, we’ve got that drink. Eleven of them, in fact, in our Cocktail Quarterly, where you’ll find a bevy of bevvies devised by some of our favorite barkeeps. Check it out.

Man of the Month
One man. One 21-foot boat. 2,200 nautical miles. Meet Jerome Sammarcelli, racing 2,100 miles from San Francisco to Hawaii, and our Man of the Month for July. 
Check it out.
