Governors Ball 2016 is sure to be the perfect start to summer for yet another year in a row. You already have to worry about transportation to Randall’s Island, which outfits you’re going to wear to make sure you get photographed, and how to prioritize your favorite artists. One thing you don’t have to worry about: food. Here, we take a look at the best food vendors in this year’s lineup.
Sofia Sanchez de Batek's nuptials to Alexandre de Batek back in 2015 proved the end all be all of destination weddings. But then again, being the marriage of the fashion favorites, the designer darling slash sartorial muse and fashion's go-to event designer with such stunning spectacles as Dior's Louvre lavender mountain in his portfolio, would you have expected anything less than such an aesthetically remarkable display?
Nothing says springtime quite like a garden party, and no one does a garden party better than the Frick. Last night, the sun set on a gilded group of socialites and art patrons dressed to the nines to fit the "white and gold" dress code of the evening, sipping peach Belvedere spritzers and rubbing elbows on the grass.
He may now have his permanent home in California, but Bob Dylan will always be a true icon of New York City. A star born of the 1960s folk scene in the Village, he wandered the same skinny streets that we do, catching the last flames of the beat generation and starting the sparks of the outspoken wave that followed, prompting protest songs and supporting the civil rights movement that changed the course of history. OK, so we're a little bit obsessed with the guy, but on his 75th birthday, everyone should be.
As we welcome summer, many of us look ahead with trepidation to the warmer months, which mean the arrival of yet another wedding season. It seems like all the girls we went to high school with are posting engagement pictures on Facebook and requesting your choice of vegetarian or chicken. Getting another save-the-date in your inbox brings up a lot of feelings about not having a plus one for all our pending invites. Here, we look at some ways to make weddings fun while forgetting all that worry about when our time will come.
First, a moment of a silence for those of us too broke for Gov Ball and Panorama. We'll be living vicariously through Instas and Snaps. Luckily, there’s no need to shell out your hard earned cash (or in my case, hypothetical cash) to hear great music, eat and drink to your heart's content and convince your followers you're at the East Coast Coachella they haven't heard of yet. It’s not hard given the breadth of outdoor concerts and events throughout the summer.
That really socially active girl you went to college with just posted photos of her with some orphans in a rural village where she is volunteering teaching English for an NGO, and you're thinking, "Do I need to do some voluntourism too?" No! Voluntourism is just an ego boost for those dealing with guilt from their first world privilege. If you want to take a vacation, take a vacation, but if you actually want to have a positive impact, get down and dirty with these real life solutions.
