In a scene straight out of the 1960s, New York City played host to what's being called the largest climate march in history on Sunday. Led by A-list names like Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo, hundreds of thousands of environmentally-concerned citizens turned out to march the streets of Manhattan, holding signs, banners, art pieces, and more in order to call for action against harmful practices like fracking. Missed the momentous event? Don't worry, even activists use Instagram.

Milan Fashion Week capped off with a blast this weekend that was sure to send the gorgeous jet set and sleepy-eyed into Paris. An event always filled with exactly the right people, this season’s amfAR Gala at Museo della Permanente did not disappoint. Heidi Klum, Rosario Dawson, Jeremy Piven, Coco Rocha and many more, joined the Italian fashion community in Milan to help raise over $1.4 million for the foundation. Moncler Chairman and Creative Director Remo Ruffini was honored and presented with the Award of Courage by last year’s gala honoree, Vogue Italia Editor in Chief, Franca Sozanni. The black-tie dinner and live auction was hosted with exceptional style and aplomb by longtime amfAR supporter, Heidi Klum. The evening featured an epic performance by Grace Jones which included her impressively hula hooping through “Slave to the Rhythm.”
Jon Neidich, the owner of Acme (9 Great Jones), knows a thing or two about creating something that the hip will flock to. Since partnering with Indochine's Jean-Marc Houmard on the space, the results were pure culinary/nightlife magic. Now, the duo plans on taking their credible crews over to the LES. We are looking forward to checking out the duo's "Tijuana Picnic" on Essex street later this year. And finally, if two hot dining spots weren't enough, Neidich took over the "Kingswood" lease at 121 W 10th street and is debuting a two-story bar called "THE HAPPIEST HOUR" with bartender Jim Kearns (Play, NoMad). Add this to the wedding-of-the-year to Alessandra Brown outside of Lucca, Italy (which was a "who's-who" of NYC power players), and Jon might just be the busiest man of the year! [You Should Know]
