With holiday season officially upon us, today I'm figuring out which of my pants have the most give in the waist in preparation for tomorrow's ceremonious eating into oblivion. Maybe the holidays mean returning to the place you once swore you'd never go back to, or in my case, a journey to foreign lands you may not belong, where the preferred footwear choice is a Birkenstock and the women don't shave their legs, much less their pits (I'm in Berkeley). For many of us, the holidays mean spending time with people with whom your only thing in common is DNA or a last name. As a seasoned expert in how to cope with extensive periods of awkward family time, I give you some ways to kill the hours with your "different" relatives during the holidays that may come in handy this Thanksgiving. None of these are groundbreaking, but I find lists very helpful in managing anxiety, so take a deep breath with me and let's go through this together. [Arrested Development scene via]
Our local team may be getting a new name, if some people have anything to do with it. More»
I know, I know, you're still mourning the lazy days of summer. But fear not! Fall in the District can be just as fun as rooftop pools and canoeing down the Potomac. So whip out that corduroy and check out what is getting us pumped for autumn in DC! More»
In the South Bay, Six Man isn't just a beach event, it's a way of life - and the most dehydrating holiday Manhattan Beach has to offer. For the uninitiated, here's the breakdown of the annual Charlie Saikley Six Man Beach Volleyball Tournament: you drink, you watch gorgeous people play insane games of volleyball, and you keep drinking until the not-so-gorgeous people become gorgeous. This year's Six Man took place yesterday, and although the city moved the tournament from a weekend to a Wednesday-Thursday setup in an effort to crack down on the DUI's and arrests, the beach cities party people were determined to make sure the shwasty spirit of Six Man was kept alive. From the kooky costumes to the chiseled players, here's a look at the long-standing traditions of Six Man that made their triumphant returns Manhattan Beach yesterday.

Chinatown's Redline Gastrolounge welcomed fans of the Ravens and the 49ers for a wild Superbowl watch party yesterday. The sleek sports pub has the game playing on over 40 flat screens and on their 11-foot projection screen, which made Beyonce's halftime show and Jacoby Jones' 108-yard kickoff return that much better.

Football fans across the globe were all watching the same game last night: Super Bowl XLVII. This year's big game had an added level of excitement, as head coaches and brothers, Jim and John Harbaugh, went head to head for some sibling rivalry. As if that weren't enough, Beyonce's epic halftime show caused a stadium-wide black out, but that didn't put a damper on any of the festivities. Take a look at how the world watched and celebrated the game last night.
We don't know if the Ravens or the 49ers will be victorious at this weekend's Super Bowl XLVII, but we do know Beyonce is likely to put forth the best performance of the day. We commend Pepsi's choice of performer as Super Bowl halftime shows have a tendency to be uniquely horrifying mashups of pop culture that are as awkward and uncomfortable to watch as they are compelling for their overwhelming awfulness. How bad could they really be? Let us count the ways. Following up yesterday's bottom five on our list with Part 1, we bring you our top five of the 10 most ridiculous Super Bowl Halftime Shows ever, from Bryan Boitano gracefully figure skating on the fifty yard line to M.I.A. flipping America the bird, and of course nipplegate.

According to reports, Jets officials are pushing newly minted teammate Tim Tebow to pick up and move to Jersey, since, ya know, New York City nightlife is full of terrible temptations on all kinds of Stefon levels. But hold up -- are we talking about the same Tim Tebow here? The teetotaler? The virgin? Apparently it's a slow news day, because Fox News investigated by going to bars and strip clubs to get the "inside scoop." More»
