<![CDATA[Transportation Hacks: How To Get Around The Hamptons For Cheap]]>

Stupidity is not extinct. No matter where you go, or what you do, you will inevitably encounter people, places and things that will make you squint your eyes, tilt your head and whisper to yourself 'what the actual f*#k?'; summertime in the Hamptons is no exception. In the land of success, wealth and extravagance, you can always find a fab party with chic people, dope music and bubbly booze. We love that part. Seriously. What we don't like, is that there are too many people choosing to get behind the wheel after having one too many vodka-spritzers. That's a big no no. 

Now if you've spent enough time out east, you probably know how outrageous the prices are for yellow-cab taxi services. If you think that $150 from Bridgehampton to Southampton is insane, you don't even want to know what it costs to get to Montauk... And that's just one way. We're all for skipping the cab fare and driving to the party but do you really want to be turning down cocktails when everyone is turning up? No, not really.

That's why we've rounded up our three favorite ways to get around the Hamptons so that you can party like a rock star without worrying about your car, or spending a small fortune.

<![CDATA[15 Can't-Miss Summer Concerts In NYC]]>

New York is synonymous for a number of things: wet, hot summers that will make you wish Geox made underwear; award winning cuisines from all over the world, with nearly every type of food imaginable available to you way past your bedtime; a winning sports tradition, perpetuated by the Yankees and, well, just the Yankees; and this inherent edge – an attitude that permeates all elements of style, fashion, and daily life that makes the city seem formidable, all while making you wish you were a part of it. There is one thing, however, that is arguably more indicative and emblematic of Gotham City’s history – music.

With some of the world's greatest concert venues and more people than you would even want at your shows to play for, New York is the perfect place for music. In fact, some of the world’s most prominent contemporary genres were born in New York. Bands like Sonic Youth, the Ramones, KISS, and Velvet Underground helped rock and roll explode on to the music scene in the '70s and '80s, leading to a new wave of music and the immortalization of rock culture. Hip Hop got its start in New York as well, with groups like Public Enemy, the Beastie Boys, A Tribe Called Quest, and the Wu-Tang clan all playing a formative role in the solidification of hip hop and rap as a legitimate – not to mention ultra-popular – music genre.

That all being said, treat yourself to one of the world’s greatest summer concert queues. With musical acts spanning every genre, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Grab a friend, a beer or five, and bring yo’ dancin’ shoes to one of these 15 must-see summer concerts.

<![CDATA[The Best NYC Spots To Go On An Acid Trip]]>

Time to ride a glowing fish, eat fried grasshoppers, savor sushi amongst armed ninjas, rave wearing a horse mask, test your cape in a wind tunnel and buy superpowers, travel through vibrant tunnels and chug too many shots in a Soviet fridge... There's no better place to take a trippy trip through time, space, dimensions and substances than the New York City jungle. Here's your guide to a wild journey.

<![CDATA[This Proves Michelle Obama Is The Coolest First Lady We'll Ever Have]]>

This week, James Corden broke up an average monotonous Tuesday with his best Carpool Karaoke video yet. Joining him for a few spins around the block (well, really just circles around the White House driveway) was none other than First Lady Michelle Obama! FLOTUS broke it down for us, with some surprisingly impressive pipes, doing renditions of classics like "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" and "Single Ladies." We're not saying Beyonce has some competition, but we're also not not saying that. 

The dynamic duo talked secret security code names, White House perks, and Michelle's new Let Girls Learn initiative. The First Lady even got a Snapchat (@MichelleObama) to help promote this movement of bringing education to girls all across the world. The highlight of this video though, is when Missy Elliott materialized as if from magic in the back of the SUV to rap her verse on the anthem for this initiative "This is For My Girls." But don't worry, they follow it up with every drunk girl's favorite jam "Get Ur Freak On." So take a break from your workflow and enjoy a good LOL courtesy of a car ride you only wish you could have been a part of.

<![CDATA[8 Under-The-Radar Designers You Need To Know From Men's Fashion Week]]>

Over the last few weeks we've been treated to another round of new, sharp, and progressive menswear. In Europe, we couldn't help but lust over the headlining collections, but here in New York we got gratification from discovering the next wave. Designers who have to be unique without the resources of a major fashion house always yield clothes that are actually wearable, genuinely interesting, or occasionally both. We rounded up a few of our favorite designers from NYFWM, all of whom you'll want to get in your wardrobe for the next few seasons.
