Heading to the beach this weekend? You might want to reconsider tonight's midnight snack. Unfortunately even foods that seem healthy can cause gas and uncomfortable bloating - so not good for your bikini body. Sorry for crushing your dreams and making you cancel your brunch plans. You'll thank us later.
Barely a half hour after Esquire's New York Fashion Week: Men's bash starts, the space is at capacity. A tall man wearing sunglasses in the dark is trying to push to the front of the line to tell the bouncers he's the president of Def Jam; they escort him away from the door, amused. When we finally enter the Damien Hirst-scattered Rose Bar lounge, it's more packed than we've ever seen but somehow we make it to the front just before Chairlift takes to the stage and Caroline Polachek shakes and silences the room with her ethereal instrument of a voice.
If you didn't already think they were cool enough, Hollywood starlets Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart have apparently received a stamp of approval from the godmother of all cool-girls, Patti Smith. Last night, Amazon & Lionsgate with The Cinema Society hosted the New York premiere of Cafe Society, Woody Allen's highly anticipated new film. After the star-studded screening, the cast and, yes, even the director, balled out at The Carlyle Hotel for a post-premiere bash as swanky as the film itself.
Frugal foodies already know what we're writing about, because this is one of the two most joyous times of the year for them - Restaurant Week! This hallowed time in NYC, lasting from July 25th to August 19th, is graciously way more than a week long and the one and only circumstance in which you can get a reasonable meal at many of the top restaurants in the city.
Forget what you've learned about public decency and leave your insecurities at home, today is National Nude Day. Just in time to help you beat the summer heatwave, National Nude Day has arrived to encourage you to shed the restrictions of everyday clothing for something a little more "au natural." Today, leave that adorable summer wardrobe hanging in your closet and prepare to strut it in your birthday suit (where acceptable). This wonderful holiday comes but once a year, and definitely deserves to be celebrated.
You may have heard a thing or two about Bastille Day. It happens to be a French festival of sorts, but what you really need to know is that it's another day to drink! Celebrating the French Revolution has never been so fun with these festive cocktails. Hey, it's a better excuse than another Thirsty Thursday.
The ingredients for the perfect picnic are easy: chic blankets, more than enough rosé, whatever you happen to have in your fridge and good company. Now, the hard part: choosing a location. We want to let you in on a secret. You don't have to endure hoards of tourists at Central Park, the High Line and other alleged Manhattan picnic meccas. Instead, head to Brooklyn and enjoy a summer meal outdoors at any of these parks and beaches.
Men’s fashion week in New York is already irrelevant as is but if you add to it after-parties that are flops, you end up with a waste of money and a ton of beautiful people looking for a better party. This year, men’s brands have gone the obscure route for their after-parties, choosing only the most unknown and random venues with bouncers stricter than your boarding school principal. Chinatown and the East Village were filled with wasted potential to end a day of groundbreaking fashion.
Whether they're waffle, curly, crinkle, shoestring, poutine, or just regular cut fries... we don't discriminate! It's National French Fry Day and that means it's time to gorge on fried potatoes every way under the sun.
