Here’s everything we’ve been reading this week that we just don’t want you to miss out on:
The first Monday in May is the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala and the celebrities, models, journalists, athletes and the like always do The. Most. I mean, for this year’s theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” Rihanna actually came dressed as the Pope. GQ did the work of rounding up the best menswear looks from the night. Our favorites are the men who take the theme to heart. Here’s looking at you, Chadwick Boseman. (GQ)
Warm weather may symbolize rosé season for you. Or you could know that good booze is year-round. The folks over at Make It Better did the Lord’s work and pinpointed the best places for bourbon in Chicago, to be enjoyed on its own or in craft cocktails. We have some tipples to try. (Make It Better)
Louis Vuitton has figured out your summer road trip plans, with the launch of the book, “Route 66.” In partnering with artist Thomas Ott, the 152-page book features drawings and photographs from the artist’s trip along the iconic highway.

Timeout Chicago has created a list of some of the best places in the city to dine and drink al fresco. Heave a collective sigh of relief and get ready for a summer of patio hopping. (Timeout Chicago)
In case you forgot – and you’re welcome for reminding you in time – Mother’s Day is on Sunday. Yes, this Sunday, May 13. In case you’ve been slacking off or just procrastinating, Coveteur has gathered a handy list of gifts from Amazon you can still get for that #1 lady, with expedited shipping of course. But paying extra shipping fees is better than the yearlong mea culpa you’ll be doing otherwise. (Coveteur)
