If you've got an apartment, a table, and the ability to read a recipe, you can throw a dinner party. There is absolutely no excuse to invite friends over for takeout and video games. Real adults can entertain themselves with conversation and have no need for petty diversion. So, open a bottle of wine and get cooking.
Superheroes and super-villains are all the rage these days, and the one thing they have in common is that they are all super fine (low hanging fruit, I know). Seriously though, the ladies of Comic-Con showed out last weekend and established nerdy as the new sexy. From the entire cast of DC's Suicide Squad to individual breakout stars like Wonderwoman's Gal Gadot, there were 10s everywhere.
For those doubting America's greatness (we have one fellow in mind), New York's dumpling scene offers a swift rebuttal. Here is a city - we would say melting pot but a large pan sizzling with sesame oil seems more appropriate - where mandoo meets gyoza. Western ingredients marry flavors from Korea, China, and Japan. Vegans can share a meal with carnivores. The range of dumplings in the five boroughs illustrate what America and the human experience is all about. We could wax poetic about these magical pockets of flavor, but we realize that you're here for one a reason: a quick run-down of eat-before-you die dumpling spots.
The fashion crowd took over Miami for the city’s annual Swim Week, and second year without IMG. Lacking the support of the powerhouse production company, Swim Week was hampered, once again, with major scheduling issues and overall disorganization. Think dueling dinners, multiple runway shows going up simultaneously, and scattered, back-to-back parties on and off South Beach. Solution? Keep the booze flowing and that Uber engine running.
The early aughts - Britney loved it, My Chemical Romance hated it, and you are probably trying to forget about it. However, just like your MySpace profile, AIM username, and awkward mirror selfies, the early 2000s will never truly go away. In fact, the trends of the time are making more of a come-back than Jonah Hill circa 2007. Have mercy.
We look to Science for many things - solutions, breakthroughs, concrete details to support an argument we're making. However, rarely does Science, that unquestionable entity, deliver us such a tidy justification for our most ill-advised (or so we thought) habits as what we've just found published in a scientific journal. As they've reported in their study "The Impact of Sad-Spending on Emotional Recovery Process," researchers have found that spending money on superfluous things while sad actually does make you feel better. What we've been trying to tell every fiscally-responsible person for years, proven empirically!
Shopping for a sex toy can be overwhelming. Whether you're looking for solo play or something to share with a partner, it is easy to get lost in the different uses for the countless available options. To help, we've done the research on which toys are best so you don't have to put your browser history at risk.
After releasing her exclusive line of lip glosses, liners, and matte sticks, Kylie Cosmetics has sky-rocketed Kylie Jenner even higher in the social world. Her first kit, which featured lipstick and liner, sold out in less than a minute after it hit her site leading it to actually crash due to the overload of customers late last year.
The idea of a hidden bar adds a little bit of thrill to the night. These *not so* hidden gems are some of the best speakeasies in all of New York. What could be better than going through some grungy alley to walk into a chic little bar that looks nothing like you would expect? Happy hunting!
The MTA has been flirting with the idea of a breakup with the L train for a while now. Hurricane Sandy put a strain on the relationship and the repairs are going to need some time. The MTA finally decided it was better to cut things off for 18 months rather than get into an open relationship with less frequent visits, starting January 2019. So what are all the hipsters going to do to get their organic vegan cheese fix? Or, more realistically, what are the Manhattan-based workers who can only afford Brooklyn going to do?
