Living an urban area shouldn't stop you from enjoying a traditional summer barbeque. There are plenty of trendy spots in NYC to grill up a prime streak, and plenty of top-of-the-line butchers to supply the meat. City-dwellers often overlook grilling their own food, and opt for restaurant dining instead. But if you're looking to mix it up, and give you're wallet a slight break, a self-grilled dinner will definitely hit the spot. So begin preparing your marinades, and get the tongs ready, because its about to be grill season in NYC! More»
Summer is officially in full swing, which hopefully means tons of BBQs, lazy days in the sun, and boozing. While these are all activities to look forward to, let's not forget it's swimsuit season, and looking our best on the beach is another priority for the summer. To put your mind at ease while enjoying yourself in the sun, check out these seven low cal cocktails that will keep you looking slim this summer. More»
Finding a good restaurant in any city is hard enough but finding a good restaurant that will accommodate you and 5 friends is even harder. In New York City where space is limited it has become the norm for tables to be squeezed next to one another or for restaurants to only take reservations up to a certain amount of guests. We understand your frustration, so we've found five spots for you and your friends to have a fun dinner with great food! More»
Summer means so many wonderful things, from the longer warm days, plentiful BBQs, and tans, to the influx of potential unpaid day laborers (AKA interns). It also means we can rage comfortably all day long on the roof of The Standard Downtown, which is exactly what we did Saturday at a very special edition of dubFrequency's No Shirt/ No Shoes pool party aimed at uniting the party scenes from L.A.'s ever-separate east and west sides. A beautiful summer day, it seems, can solve even the fiercest rivalries. More»
There are probably some of you out there who feel like it's important to spend Memorial Day weekend in silent reflection over the sacrifices made in the name of American freedom. And we very much respect that, and send our profound thanks to those who serve our country. We also think that the best way to celebrate freedom, once you've given your thanks, is to go out and have a completely awesome time. Luckily for you, there's a bounty of pool parties, music festivals, BBQ's, yacht parties, rooftop ragers, and more this long weekend, right here in L.A.– check it all out in our 2012 Memorial Day Weekend Party Guide!

'Sampling bias' refers to when the group of people chosen to conduct a survey or research study do not represent the full group that is supposedly being studied. For example, if we published a study called "LA's Favorite Bars," and then we only interview the drunk 16-year olds puking outside the Key Club, you might read it and end up thinking that the consensus best bar in LA is a K-Town grocery store that doesn't ask for ID when they sell Four Loko. This concept also applies to Travel & Leisure Magazine, and their "America's Favorite Cities" survey which I feel was off on more than a few key points. More»
This weekend, I plan on attending my first large-scale outdoor bar crawl and subsequent BBQ party of the year. If the weather stays the way it's been going, there's probably also an even-money bet that I'll be jumping into a pool sometime in the next 72 hours. Which is awesome, right? See, I know in the backlash-fueled world of internet comedy writing, there's some case to be made for why summer sucks. Oh, there's little kids at the beach, and I can't get my favorite table at Red Lobster, and there's no new episodes of SVU! More»
