What better way to get drunk with your friends on a Saturday night out or, you know, during the day, than with a frozen cocktail? Cool down while you turn up with everything from frosé to alcoholic slushies. Only in NYC...
Cadillac House has become one of the best new pop-ups of the season, joining other brands in creating interactive initiatives to bring in the world of consumer products and the immense culture of the city together. Last night was a prime example: the venue teamed up with Condé Nast Nast to celebrate the 'Daring 25,' 25 people who are changing their respective industries. Chosen by publications including GQ Style, Vanity Fair, Bon Appétit, Architectural Digest, and Wired, the list of 25 featured notable influencers like designer and DJ Virgil Abloh, saxophonist Kamasi Washington, and artist Philippa Price.
Last night the Cinema Society with Bloomberg and Thomas Pink hosted a screening of Sony Pictures Classics’ Equity at MoMA. The evening was capped off with a stunning after-party at SixtyFive – the spectacular indoor/outdoor bar on 30 Rock’s 65th floor (who would’ve guessed?).
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.
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 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!
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?
It can get beyond annoying to pack lunch for work. Most times, to save money and effort, you just grab something pre-made or unhealthy - don't deny it. It's time to change that...healthy bites can be just as easy as they are good for you. Check out these recipes that make the dreaded night-before cooking a whole lot easier and less fattening.
