When it comes to culture, we’re interested in lots of it… music, art, sports, and most of all, food. Here’s what we’re into this week:
1. In Defense of Instagramming Your Food | LA Magazine
Court is in session, and the case being heard today is Foodstagrammers vs. the rest of the world. Here’s a top-notch argument for why Instagramming that perfect plate may be bettering the community. Hint: It has to do with greater food awareness and holding suppliers to higher standards of quality. Style, flash, post, eat.
2. Road-tripping Kauai with Pro Surfer Kelly Slater | Huckberry
He might go by many names (“The Michael Jordan of Surfing”… “Christian Slater”) but Kelly Slater, the youngest and oldest World Surf League champion, is just a guy with a board and a love for adventure. Huckberry sits down with Slater to find out what drives him to uncharted waters. Total surf movie vibes.

Well here’s your get-out-of-bed inspiration for the day: Nikki Misurelli takes the world by motorbike to encourage people to travel, and her story is full of beyond-breathtaking views. Warning: This video may cause impulsive plane ticket-buying and a need for vacation… STAT.
4. I Ate Like the Queen for a Week, and It Was Simply Lovely | New York Post
As the Queen across the pond turns 91, it seems like an appropriate time to try living like a Queen. Two breakfasts a day, buscuits and tea, and a mid-day gin. Yep, we’re ready to swap lives with the living legacy. Or maybe just diets.
