The Ultimate Road Trip: Ireland

For many, the real Ireland is on the back roads. That’s the green isle envisioned when one closes their eyes, winding around its rocky coastline on tiny lanes lined with centuries-old stone fences. And that’s exactly what fellow MatadorU faculty member Candice Walsh and Co. did this spring on a quest to uncover her Irish heritage. For nearly two weeks, the team made their way across the southern coast, bobbing and weaving through tiny hillside towns all the way to County Sligo. What follows is a photo album-worth of images from the trip.

The Graham & Co. Lodge Hotel in the Catskills

There’s a boutique hotel tucked away in Phoenicia, New York that sells bold t-shirts starkly demanding Catskills vs. the Hamptons as if to imply “Choose a side.” Besides the tri-state’s penchant for competitiveness on nearly everything, one thing’s for certain: There’s a new weekend destination on the map—and Graham & Co. is the summer’s hippest way to enjoy the West Hudson. Last year, four Brooklyn-based friends—among them OAK founder Jeff Madalena and Athletics Creative Director Jason Gnewikow—noticed their local roadside motel had been recently vacated and, they thought, could benefit from their collective design prowess. They snapped it up and redesigned it from the ground up. Custom-built beds of reclaimed wood, vintage fixtures, house-branded bath amenities, and a free Budweiser at check-in; everything at Graham & Co. has been well considered and expertly executed. Consider our side chosen. Graham & Co. is located at 80 Route 214 Phoenicia, New York.

Casa Palacio: A New Retail Concept Store in Mexico City

In mid-April, home emporium Casa Palacio opened its doors in Mexico City. Designed by NYC-based retail architect Jeffrey Hutchison, the space is designed to make shoppers feel like they are at the home of a friend (with great taste) rather than in a shop, even though the space covers three floors and 60,000 square feet.
