It’s been a busy week here at HODINKEE HQ. Or, rather, away from HODINKEE HQ. We’ve had editors on four continents over the last few days, bringing you stories from Switzerland, Dubai, and elsewhere. In the midst of it all though, we’ve still had time to scour the web to find other stories to bring you on this weekend, which is the last one before Thanksgiving here in the United States. Whether you’re into food, art, or sneakers, we’ve got something good for you right here.
When I’m not thinking about watches, I’m usually thinking about cooking (and eating) my next meal. I also happen to be in charge of Thanksgiving this year (as I was the past three years). This interactive package is beautiful and practical, explaining how to cook the entire feast with one oven, at one temperature.

We thought the sale of Paul Newman’s Paul Newman Daytona was wild – this week’s sale of Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Salvator Mundi” was on a whole ‘nother level. The last of the old master’s paintings in private hands has now become the most expensive work of art ever. Vanity Fair has the $450-million-dollar story.

In New York, my typical breakfast routine involves something quick that I can scarf down at my desk. So when I travel, an indulgent hotel breakfast is one of my favorite treats. I somehow just found this list from Condé Nast Traveler, which details the best morning meals around. I consider it a to-do list.

This is just what the name says: a collection of noses. These aren’t just any noses, though; they’re noses that were once part of attempts to restore Classical statues that had lost their schnozzes, to something like their original appearance. Nowadays, such alterations are considered very bad form.

Everyone loves a good success story, and Ronnie Fieg’s is just that. Here he talks about his career path and keeping his brand KITH intact while growing it into a small empire with a 10,000-square-foot flagship store in Soho, 200 employees, and collaborations with Coca-Cola and Nike.
