  • Budweiser’s Classic Bottles Look Great In The RSVLTS Beer Fridge

    Ahh the vintage beer craze. Just when you thought it was going to peak with Miller Lite’s 1970s-era cans Budweiser decided to jump on board with their limited edition #HolidayBuds campaign. We were lucky enough to receive a classic inspired wooden crate, which were released across America this week, and we must tip our hat to the King of Beers, because they actually did a great job not only with the crates, which were handmade by a North Carolina shop called Vintage Editions, but also with the bottle labels which are exact replicas from Budweiser’s past, 1918 (beginning of Prohibition), 1933 (end of Prohibition) or 1976 (the brand’s 100th anniversary).

  • Bacardi Triangle: A Weekend Jaunt to Puerto Rico for Pool Parties, Halloween Cocktails and Calvin Harris [Photos + GIFS]

    You can expect three things from Bacardi in 2015. Music, travel and parties. This past weekend we got to experience a taste of what is to come in the next year and as you’ll see from our photos and GIFS, it’s glorious! The world’s most popular rum producer has found that simply slapping their name on title sponsorship of a pre-existing event is not an effective marketing tactic anymore as their fans, who just so happen to “align perfectly with RSVLTS,” according to Bacardi brand reps, are seeking more of an immersive, memorable and epic experiences. We agree. With that knowledge Bacardi has decided to take the lead by producing their very own travel adventures that blend music with exotic party atmospheres to give their fans the opportunity to have a few cocktails in paradise and snap absurdly amazing photos to share with friends who are anxiously following along at home. — Help a bro out, share this story with your friends: Tweet — The first event in this new initiative, which will be expanded upon even further in 2015, was Bacardi Triangle, a three day, super exclusive music festival and travel adventure for 1,862 lucky Bacardi fans, celebrities and lucky friends more »

  • Priory Gets The Weekend Started At RSVLTS HQ [RSVLTS Live]

    I got a text message from my friend Anthony on Thursday October 15th at 4:30pm saying that I need to check out “Weekend” by a new band named Priory. The name Priory sounded very familiar and as it turned out their publicist Brooke had emailed me two days before about doing some press because they were in New York City for the weekend to mark the launch of their new EP Weekend which dropped last week.  I was also very familiar with their song “Weekend” as it’s getting regular rotation of ESPN GameDay every week so something needed to be done. On a whim I emailed Brooke back, she gave me a call and after a few minutes of small talk she said the band would be available to stop by RSVLTS HQ the following morning to perform a couple of their hit songs. It all escalated very quickly. Fast forward 18 hours later and the band rolled up to our parking lot in their royal blue converted shuttle bus that serves as their home away from home on the road. Five friends from Oregon trying to make it in the music biz, riding off a hit single “Weekend” and traveling in style, all while more »

  • Who Should Be On The New York Yankees’ Mount Rushmore? [Vote Now]

    There has been a lot of debate whether or not Derek Jeter deserves to be on the New York Yankees’ theoretical “Mount Rushmore”. There are four spots to fill, one needs to be Babe Ruth, that is hardly debatable, but what about the other three? For a team with 21 numbers retired numbers and an owner who changed baseball forever we want to settle the argument and allow the fans to vote.

  • 35 GIFS That Perfectly Describe Life In Hoboken, NJ

    Hoboken. The beautiful town right across the Hudson that your “New York” friends look upon with a smug distain. Well those city folk can keep their Citi Bikes and overpriced groceries, we’ll keep our skyline view and wide array of watering holes (the most within any square mile in the country).

  • That Time We Took The New Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid Offroading In Key West [60 HQ Photos]

    Last month we took the new Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid on an epic Florida Keys adventure. In the story RSVLTS Goes On A Florida Keys Excursion With The New Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid [HQ Photos] we gave you a detailed account on our trip and the blueprint for a great Key West trip with your bros or a significant other. RSVLTS was the first group to push the XV Crosstrek Hybrid’s all-terrain capabilities to the limits in order to see parts of the Keys no one else could. With dozens of Keys within a short drive on Key West you can easily go on an offroading adventure which is what we did for an entire day with the brand new  XV Crosstrek Hybrid. Putting it’s capabilities to the test, like ground clearance of 8.7 inches, which is higher than some dedicated SUVs like the Jeep Grand Cherokee, we were able to see things that people driving other Hybrids like a Prius, and SUVs for that matter, simply could not. The all-terrain capabilities of the XV Crosstrek Hybrid were quite remarkable. We were climbing hills and going over bumps that were really intimidating but the all-wheel drive hybrid handled it all without batting an more »

Regardless of what you’re looking for we’ve got your cheat sheet to having a good time in Key West.  In it we’ll cover where to stay, where to go out, what to see and things to do.

    It was on the advice of John Dos Passos, a fellow member of the “Lost Generation” of ex patriate artists and writers populating Paris during the 1920s, that Ernest Hemingway was first prompted to visit Key West. Hemingway did not go directly to South Florida from Paris, but rather arrived through Havana, Cuba—a city and country that would prove to be critically important in Hemingway’s later personal and professional life.

  • Super Storm Sandy in Hoboken: Then and Now Photos [RSVLTS Original]

    It’s been one year since Hoboken was devastated by Superstorm Sandy. One of the most popular stories in RSVLTS.com history was A First Look At Hurricane Sandy’s Destruction of Hoboken, NJ [70 HQ Photos]. The story captured the chaos and confusion that followed in the days post Superstorm. We were contacted by teachers, museums and news sources looking to use pictures featured in the story to educate students and the public across the country looking for a first hand encounter. View the map we used to shoot the photos >> Hard to believe the storm hit one year ago across the North East. After the destruction struck so close to our homes and offices, we saw the devistation and the process of progress in what seemed  like a seamless transition, thanks to help of first responders, volunteers and the National Guard. Today we attempted to shoot the same iconic photos on the streets of Hoboken to recreate several of those pictures to show how the Mile Square has rebuilt in the past year. The top photo will be the before, showing Hoboken during or just after the storm and the bottom photo will be the picture we shot on October more »

  • Atlas Genius Dazzles Fans At Webster Hall Showcase [10 Photos + Video]

    Atlas Genius recently wrapped up a sold-out tour with Imagine Dragons and are now the Australians are hitting the road for their first ever North American headlining tour. They will also perform at numerous festivals, including the Sasquatch! Festival, Lollapalooza, the Firefly Music Festival, Summerfest, Edgefest, San Francisco’s BFD and San Diego’s X-Fest. If the music industry was a high school yearbook than Atlas Genius would be Most Likely To Succeed in the superlatives section. Every major music publication has highlighted Atlas Genius in their “bands to watch in 2013″ lists for good reason. These guys really do rock. To celebrate the honor of being named a “MTV Artist to Watch” the band performed an intimate show at Webster Hall’s The Studio for roughly 100 diehard fans. The set was live streamed over the web and their label hooked us up with a photo pass to capture all the action. The band absolutely crushed it. At one point the power went out to their microphones and instead of crumbling the band capitalized on the adversity by performing their hit single Trojans acoustically-ish to a hushed the crowd. This singalong was definitely the highlight of the night. All-in-all they are definitely more »

We used a Nikon 5200 with a 16-35mm lens which helped us capture these excellent pictures. If you spot yourself or someone you know feel free to download the pictures and share on Facebook.

    Today, President Barack Obama posted a picture to Facebook of him greasing up the ol’ windmill, practicing his pitching form. At first glance it looks like he has a pretty good pitching motion but we talked to a pitching expert, former pro pitcher and pitching instructor to give “Ba-Rocket” Obama a few pointers. In addition to the pointers below, our expert has offered a free lesson to the Obama (afterall he’ll have three more Opening Days as the leader of the free world) so if anyone from the Secret Service is reading this and he’d like to take us up on the offer you probably already know how to find us.

    Last night, I got about a dozen text messages, all at the same time, saying that our “Goats Yelling Like Humans” super cut video was featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live! He is well known for featuring popular YouTube videos, and Goats was the third most shared video on the entire internet last week. So it makes sense that he featured this, but I was still surprised and extremely psyched. It’s amazing how much this has blown up in the last week.

  • Cool Runnings: Then and Now, 20th Anniversary Reunion Edition

    The cast of Cool Runnings recently reunited at Calgary’s Plaza Theatre Sunday to celebrate the 20th anniversary of it’s release. Several members of the cast were on hand to sign autographs, take photos and watch a special screening of the beloved movie. Two cast members, Leon Robinson and Doug E. Doug, decided against watching the matinee saying, “Last night I watched it, and I was like ‘OK, that’s enough,’” Doug explained to Metro Calgary. “You start to get critical of yourself. You’re not watching what people are watching. You’re just thinking, ‘Wow, my head looks big. My dreadlocks look messy.’”  So this got us thinking, what is the cast up to these days? Obviously John Candy is no longer with us and Sanka Coffie is an all-star on Facebook but what about everyone else? Let’s do a quick check in.

  • Exclusive: Hunter Hayes Performs at the Pepsi 5th Quarter Official Super Bowl After-Party

    Hunter Hayes is nominated for three Grammy Awards and is the most exciting young talent in the industry. He performed at Pepsi’s 5th Quarter official Super Bowl after-party for a very intimate crowd of a few dozen. Pepsi invited us out to the party and we were fortunate enough to score a spot in the very front. Judging by the reaction we got to our Justin Timberlake videos we figured you guys like seeing music content so we used the opportunity to shoot some video. Hunter reminds us of a young John Mayer with country influence. He is immensely talented, performing every instrument on his debut, self-titled album, has a great voice and wrote or co-wrote all the songs on the album as well. This is a staggering trifecta that will make him a force for years to come.

    Usually when a “Types Of People At Your Super Bowl Party” list is created it is rehashed from someone else’s list the previous year so the info is out of date and all the types of people are totally negative downers.
