Now that the weather is getting nicer and temps are finally above 30 degrees, head to Bushwick for your Sunday brunch. Hang out at Maria Hernandez park and walk around the Morgan and Jefferson stops to admire the street art murals stretching for blocks.

Bushwick has become the prime spot for local, seasonal, healthy, fresh, and organic fare, so mingle with the cool kids and brunch in Brooklyn this weekend.

However, festival and beach season is right around the corner, so we spoke with S10’s Joe Holder on the five ways to win the battle when shedding the winter weight.
On Thursday night in NYC, Amplify Releasing and The Cinema Society hosted a screening of Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter, a new film starring the Oscar-nominated Rinko Kikuchi.

Last night Love Heals, the Alison Gertz Foundation for AIDS Education, held its annual gala night at the Four Seasons Restaurant in NYC.

The first rule of being a It Girl is don't trash talk. Thanks to her big mouth, one very "It" actress is out (finally-she was so rude to me once) which means there's room in her spot! But, what if someone is social climb-blocking you, like an ex-boyfriend or regretful past lover? Don't fret; I'll fix you up...

Brunch. This oh-so-American and oh-even-more-so-New York time of decided ease and calculated leisure. This long, ephemeral mealtime that somehow finds itself in no rush despite an ever-creeping Monday. It is the one time a week where we excuse our sense of urgency, and dine thoughtfully, at a pace we only wish was more permanent. The city has far too many amazing options in which to loaf and lounge yourself full. This week, we're in the mood for something fairly specific, fairly plain, but absolutely delicious. And so we toast this week's brunch edit: the best 5 spots to dig in to the brunch classic, the side that really deserves to be a main - toast.

You've finally finished that project, emailed everyone back, and had the last meeting with your boss only to realize that it's past 7 pm and your favorite cocktail has now doubled in price.

Read on for some of our favorites!
