ATLANTA: “Mi Casa, Your Casa” at the High Museum of Art
What is better than spending your weekend napping? Napping outside in a hammock, of course. For those visiting or situated in Atlanta, the High Museum of Art presents “Mi Casa, Your Casa,” an installation in which hammocks hang in their own open “houses.” The exhibit invites you to get some sun and rest for the upcoming workweek, and it’s art. Plan your trip here.

NEW YORK: Rivington F&B
Looking for good music this weekend? May we suggest Rivinton F&B, a Lower Eastside “rock bar” that just re-opened after renovations. Look for late night eats, a new sound system and plenty of booze to go around. Learn more online.

Neither a stranger to the art of collaboration, Opening Ceremony opens a pop-up shop inside the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch, London. In typical Ace fashion, the space is decorated in an eclectic manner unique to London’s local goods. See inside the new space here.

MEMPHIS: Elvis Presley’s Graceland Mansion
For those in the Southern region of the United States, we highly recommend visiting Elvis Presley’s home, otherwise known as Graceland. Photographs taken of the home by Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane give us a different picture (pun intended) of the rock ‘n’ roller’s home that’s normally serves as a mere tourist attraction. From the grand piano to the EP-embossed glassware, it is amazing to see how he once lived from a different perspective. Purchase tickets to see the home for yourself here.
