What we're clicking on this week at Fathom HQ.
Japanophiles, listen up: If you haven't heard of Sumo Stew, add it to your agenda for 2017. Earlier this week, Team Fathom attended the food-and-sporting event in Brooklyn. We had the best time watching sumo on a big screen as we ate bowl after bowl of curry-flavored chankonabe and drank too many matcha cocktails to count. The next ones will be in San Francisco in January and Brooklyn in March. – Berit, editor
English comedian Daniel Kitson is back at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn with Mouse: The Persistance of an UnlikelyThought, a clever and funny performance that's on through November 27. – Pavia, CEO
A glimmer of hope for the future: There is now more bike traffic than car traffic in Copenhagen. – Daniel, editorial assistant
I spent a good hour exploring this incredibly detailed map of Kowloon's Walled City in Hong Kong. Everything is documented: drug lords in the gambling dens, prostitutes with clients, and day-to-day life of locals doing laundry. I want to buy the book. – Becky, assistant editor
Mama Shelter has expanded into Rio's Santa Teresa neighborhood. See you there. – Daniel
Sonos, having just released a study on how people listen to music around the world, has launched a new platform with Spotify that allows friends to RSVP to a holiday gathering by adding a song to a collective playlist. – Daniel
This year I'm adopting the sweet Icelandic tradition of giving books on Christmas Eve. – Berit
Good news for armchair travelers: Google Earth is getting virtual reality. – Becky
