Want This: The Hamptons Subway Map

Annie's Blue Ribbon General Store

The Hamptons Subway Map: We wish.

FAIR HIKE: If we could get to Montauk with a single Metrocard swipe – like this cheeky Hamptons Subway Map poster suggests – we wouldn’t be writing about shopping right now. (Also, it might make the new subway fare easier to swallow). $20 at Annie’s Blue Ribbon General Store, 365 State Street, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn; 718-522-9848.

TERROIR: The second-most profitable market in the world for McDonald’s? France (quelle horreur). Author and Slate wine critic Michael Steinberger’s just-released 'Au Revoir to All That: Food, Wine and the End Of France’ (Bloomsbury) is a keen look at how French chefs, artisans, winemakers and so on are trying hard to reinvigorate the country’s rich (but disappearing) culinary heritage. $25 at Idlewild Books, 12 West 19th Street; 212-414-8888  

SAYONARA: The recently announced shuttering of wee Kenmare Street boutique msg. – one of the city’s best go-tos for apparel from hard-to-find Japanese designers, as well as owner Mami Suzuki’s own flowy creations – is sad news. Scoop up massive discounts on everything in the shop before it closes at the end of July. msg., 66 Kenmare Street; 212-334-4032.
