My Phone’s Dead, I’m Lost, Drunk, and Dead Broke: Your Guide to Getting Home in NYC

As I regained awareness of my surroundings (ahem…coming out of a blackout), I realized I was stumbling out of one of the Lower East Side’s ubiquitous filthy houses of debauch. The night had been a resounding failure. No one enjoyed my humor, the opposite sex somehow found me unappealing, and…

Why Art Incubators, Not Tech Incubators, Might be Just the Thing San Francisco Needs

The bay area has managed to invest zillions in tech incubators and engineering talent, but what about investing in the artistic talent that makes our city unique, creative, and interesting?  Once upon a time this city nourished the likes of Mark Twain, Jack Kerouac, Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Jack London & the Dead Kennedys.  But…

St. Patrick and Mr. De Mayo have fun holidays named after them, but at some point we have to acknowledge that we as a nation are guilty of using cultural appropriation (ie: Miley Cyrus) as a reason to get blitzed on a weekday. Shame on all of you: you need…

Entertaining for the Poor as F*ck: Romance on the Cheap

  Ah, l’amour: the joy of two souls finding one another, holding hands, whispering sweet nothings, and sharing a Netflix account (that’s commitment, friends. That’s real life). If you are not in love at the moment, that’s ok! Just go read something else because your loneliness is killing my vibe….
