Get excited everyone, the best holiday of the year, Easter, is almost here! Ok, maybe Cinco de Mayo's better, and also St. Patty's, Christmas, 4th of July, Hanukkah, New Year's, Kwaanza, Boxing Day, President's Day, and pretty much anything that might give you a day off of work. But just because pastel-colored chocolates and egg painting stops being fun after (SPOILER ALERT!) you realize the Easter Bunny's not real, doesn't mean there aren't alternative, adult ways to have fun on J.C.'s big day. Here are some thoughts.
We though we'd take a little time to say goodbye to a few trends that we are officially over for the new year. Some of these things (like Call Me Maybe and the whole vampire obsession) were great while they lasted, while others should probably never have seen the light of day. Click through to see the top six 2012 trends that we are more than happy to say goodbye to in 2013.

The Olympic Ceremony is tonight and unfortunately not all of us will be making the journey to Europe to watch the events live. Luckily NBC will be broadcasting 17 straight days of around-the-clock Olympic coverage, so no one will miss the action. Here are some of the top places in NYC to watch the Olympics games this year.

One of the drawbacks to many electronic music shows is that they take place indoors. As much fun as a club night with a major headlining DJ can be, a sweaty, claustrophobic indoor space is just kind of the wrong look when you're in the middle of a summer as beautiful as we've been having here in Southern California*. That's why we're beyond thrilled for next weekend (August 3 + 4)'s HARD Summer, Downtown L.A.'s annual massive rave-style outdoor music festival, which looks to seriously up the ante this year with 2 days of music across 4 stages and an insane lineup that should satisfy ravers, indie kids and even hip hop heads. Read on for the full lineup, set times and more! More»
Let's face it - no matter how much we expect that every moment of our Hamptons summer outing to be filled with sunny beach days, there unfortunately will always be those days that are cloudy and dare we say it -- stormy. While beach umbrellas are really useful, they will only go so far when rain is involved. Rather than drink to every rain drop that falls from the sky, put on your rain boots and venture out. Here's our guide on where to go and what to do when Mother Nature is having one of her moments. More»
It's now mid-July, and if you are unaware of your options to getting to the Hamptons, we have a problem. However, if you feel like your transportation option just isn't quite working out for you, we may have a solution. Thanks to the New York Times' extensive review on getting to the Hamptons, we have an in depth look at just how a Friday afternoon can be spent aboard the Hampton Jitney, the LIRR and of course, a helicopter. We've thrown in one more option, StndAir, just in case neither of those three tickle your fancy. More»
4th Of July Weekend is just about here. Hopefully, you're putting in your last full day before the five-day weekend, even staying late in the office if you have to in order to make sure every "i" is dotted, because the American workforce is full of can-do team players that never quit until the job is... hey wait, where are you going? You're leaving already? It's barely noon! Well, before you go, a question: you're not, by chance, going to a pool party this weekend, are you? Because I hear you don't do so well at pool parties.

Remember when Montauk wasn't written about daily in The New York Times? Yeah, neither do we. There are people that do remember the days prior to the gentrification of the land, when big names such as The Surf Lodge and Ruschmeyer's hadn't even marked their grounds yet. Not to say we don't enjoy frequenting those spots, but sometimes it's nice to get down to the real grit of the land. And by that, we're talking dive bars, of which Montauk has many. So grab one of the cheapest beers you can find in a 30 mile radius, settle in at the bar and strike up a conversation with the scruffy fisherman seated next to you. Just don't let it slip that you found out about these 6 bars from a website!! More»
It's really not every day that an invitation to a beach bonfire is extended to you (especially during the months of September through April). But it's almost July, and the desire to build a fire on the beach and ceremoniously drink beers around it can arise every now and then. Rather than showing up in your best club gear, sans alcohol and without any fire making supplies, educate yourself on how to make the most of your evenings on the beach. One last word of advice, choose your bonfire spot carefully, in order to not to attract any uninvited men in uniform. More»
Summer is here and what better way to party than outdoors. The city is our playground, but it looks so much better from up high.
