Issue #7 Christmas Chill Out Issue
Amy and I spent the last few weeks watching, reading, clicking and clinking. We’ve assembled a list of our favorites things in hopes you discover some of your own. Hope your spirits are bright this holiday weekend. Wishing you the merriest.

The Click — Travel the world at your desk and get lost in Atlas Obscura.
The Clink — Amy and I are infrequent swillers of Bourbon and Chardonnay but we found two exceptional palate pleasers: a small batch bourbon handcrafted by Amy’s friends in Sonoma and a Chardonnay that impressed a master sommelier when we brought it to a party. Also, here’s a winter version of the Negroni.
The Dish — Strata with sausage and greens is Amy’s go-to recipe when she has a house full of holiday guests.
The Cure — If you’re going to slather something on your face or body run it by EWG’s Skin Deep database first.
The Tip — Why complaining might end up killing you.
The Give — Rescue Gifts that save lives.
The Fail — Australia’s surreal anti-weed campaign is supposed to deter teens from drugs but Stoner Sloth is quickly becoming a cult hero.
Our Friends of the Week: Gina Pell + Amy Parker
Here I am with Amy Parker, my friend of the week this week and every week for the past fifteen years. We are at theWhat’s inaugural 2-person company holiday party celebrating our first seven issues. We spend most of our days dreaming up unrealistic s#!t and figuring out ways to wow you with things you’ll actually love, use, and share. If you are reading this sentence (and not ready to unsubscribe), thank you for taking an interest in our new thing.
Since we started theWhat, we’ve received quite a few questions from readers and friends who want to know more about What we’re building so we thought we’d take a moment to answer those questions here.
