Lap Dance

Posted October 17, 2008
While the paper-towel-as-napkin trick works just fine, it’s not very environmentally responsible or stylish. If you can afford to shell out cash on an iPhone, then you can afford proper cloth napkins. We like these “Street Napkins” by Lovegrove & Repucci, embroidered with a design illustrating a typical city street corner. At twenty inches square they’ll easily protect your lap from unseemly food spills, and do it a lot more stylishly than that sheet of Bounty you used to use.
