by Mara Siegler · June 6, 2011

Sam Talbot talks his favorite places in NYC; a list of the best bars in Gowanus; a list of the best blended cocktails; some hard partying gossip about our favorite Napster founder, Sean Parker and more.  Today's nightlife roundup told a friend, who told a friend, who told a friend...

1. Sam Talbot's New York [NYP]

Sam Talbot, hottie, owner of Surf Lodge in Montauk and chef at Mondrian Soho's Imperial No. 9, dishes on his favorite places in NYC including Loomstate, Astor Wine, and Saturday's Surf.

2. The Best Bars In Gowanus [TheFeast]

Gowanus is having it's fifteen minutes. It's totally the new Bushwick! Or whatever! If you are in for a night out in the alt  post-industrial area, the Feast has a good list of bars. Or, you could always go visit the new bohemians living on the toxic waters and sunbathing without a care in the world about the raw sewage, PCBs, and gonorrhea floating beneath.

3. Frozen Drinks To Make Your Mouth Water [NYP]

The NYP has an amazing slide show of blended beverages to make you salivate. That creamy concoction above is the Dutch Hopper, $15 at Mulberry Project. It's filled with vodka and syrups of mint and house made Dutch cocoa and served with shaved chocolate and whipped cream. Mmmmmm......

4. Sean Parker Gets Wild At Rockography [Gatecrasher]

Napster founder and Facebook guy, who was played by Justin Timberlake in the Social Network, may have publicly stated he has a hard time living up to people's hard partying expectations of him, but according to onlookers he was doing just fine at the opening of  "Late Nights" at Rockography with deejay Alexander Dexter Jones.
