Ear Candy

Takashimaya

Melts in your ears, not in your hands.

SQUARE: Tuck your iPod Nano into this cheeky chocolate bar case designed by Tadaaki Wakamatsu for Q-Pot. It’s made of rubber, but your sweet tooth doesn’t need to know that. $95 at Takashimaya, 693 Fifth Avenue 212-350-0111.

SEEING STARS: Out today is the Michelin Guide New York 2010: the new, friendlier Michelin! The star rating is still in place (congrats to Daniel’s threefer), but more interesting are new categories like “Small Plates,” spots where you can get a meal for two -- including wine -- for $40 (recessiony!), and restos with notable cocktail or sake lists. $17.99 at Strand Bookstore, 828 Broadway; 212-473-1452.

KITTY PORN: The come-hither photo of a Siamese in platinum ringlets on the cover of this new coffee-table photo book is surpassed only by the title: "Glamourpuss: The Enchanting World of Kitty Wigs”. This lushly high-fashion tome is to ICanHazCheeseburger what Vogue is to The Star – even though it, too, started with a website. $14.95 at Fred Flare, 131 Meserole Avenue, Greenpoint, Brooklyn; 718-349-1257.
