  • The Gentleman’s Guide to Drinking in Public

    Sometimes, you just want to drink fermented things and act like a fool. It’s human nature. Drinking is a great lubricant (pun absolutely intended) for social interaction. I love a good night out, complete with strong cocktails, two-for-one deals, and overhearing those girls continuously yelling “OH MY GOD THIS IS MY SONG!” I’ve made my fair share of mistakes, though. Have you ever blacked out and decided it was a great idea to sing onstage in front of people? Ever had to clean drunk-puke off your Doc Martens? Yeah, it’s not exactly a Kodak Moment. Do as I say, not as I do. Here are some ways to avoid looking like a douchebag the next time you go out drinking: Don’t be a cheapskate. Remember: You have to pay for drinks, drunk food, taxi fare, and adequate tips (15-20% or more!There are apps for this! You have no excuse!). Dress for the bars you are attending, not the bars you want to be attending. People will stare at the guy in the leisure suit at a dive bar. In the same vein, if the place looks fancy on Yelp, you should probably shower and put away your muscle tee. Know more »

  • NYC Assemblyman Proposes to Ban Bar Crawls, then All Fun

    Democratic Assemblyman, Micah Kellner is proposing a bill that would ban all planned bar crawls in NYC. The bill would put pressure on the bars or pubs themselves to not take part in any organized crawls around the city, by threatening to pull the liquor license of any bar caught sponsoring or promoting an event, which are typically organized bar hopping with discounted drink specials.

  • Empire State Building Lights Go LED, Changing NYC Skyline Forever

    This morning at midnight, 11/26/12, The Empire State Building changed its flood lights to LED lights, forever changing the night time skyline of New York City. In 1964, floodlights were added to illuminate the top of the building at night, in colors chosen to match seasonal and other events. When the lights went live at midnight, they did so to the music of Alicia Keys’ new album which, you guessed it, also drops today. Some see the addition as an insult to the classic look, others see it as an innovative step other major cities have already made. The key word is progress. Keys’ album drop show was the exception, but I completely disagree with having civilians pay to have a special light catastrophe in their individual honor. It takes away from the ubiquitous influence of unity those lights held for so many years. On special occasions, like New Years Eve at midnight or the Yanks winning the world series, a good light show on top of NYC’s most famous building could be called for, other than that, leave the light shows to Broadway.
