The original International Symbol of Access (image below) was designed in 1969 by Susanne Koefoed. Enlarged above is the Accessible Icon, a recent redesign that portrays a person in forward motion, propelling through space. Surrounded by small images that depict various iterations, the new symbol represents people in wheelchairs as dynamic, rather than static bodies. The Accessible Icon Project began as a social intervention with the goal of making cities more inclusive. Its symbol is open source and available in a multitude of formats and sizes. This image was designed by Tim Ferguson Sauder, Brian Glenney and Sara Hendren between 2009 and 2011.

You might think that a place calling itself Pink Club would be either a store selling pink merchandise exclusively, or a club for people who love the color pink, but you would be incorrect in both cases. Pink Club is a women’s clothing store that sells a variety of fashion merchandise (in many colors besides just pink) which are suited to the climate of Palm Desert, California, where this store is located.
Visit Pink Club at 73130 El Paseo, Palm Desert, CA 92260.
This cleverly-name-drink menu was spotted outside McGee’s Pub, the bar that served as the inspiration for McLaren’s Pub on the hit TV series How I Met Your Mother. I wonder if they also host a Trivia Night?
McGee’s Pub and Restaurant is Located at 240 West 55th Street (Between Broadway and 8th Avenues) in Midtown Manhattan.
