Mario’s Got a Whole New Bag

As if signature Crocs weren’t enough, Mario Batali now has a line of lunch bags! The notorious messenger-bag-wearer is producing some of his own, out next month, that are insulated so you can carry your Prosecco to the park — if it spills, the lining, adorned with an Italian landscape, is easy to wipe. And with the purchase of any $25 to $45 bag, you get Mario’s panini recipe!! More important, part of your money goes to U.S. and African food charities. Surprisingly, very few of the bags come in Nerf orange (more like “espresso” and “persimmon”), and thankfully, none of them are so hideously ugly that you’ll get punched by the office bully and stripped of your headcheese sandwich.
