Thanksgiving has come and gone, the days are getting shorter and colder, and Christmas jingles have officially infiltrated every CVS and Duane Reade in the city. That’s right: it’s winter time. While some of you warm-weather people might be getting ready to hibernate, anybody who’s spent winter in NYC knows there are lots of winter reasons to leave your cave during the holiday season. One of those reasons is the Winter Village at Bryant Park, the annual festive pop up market surrounding an amazing seasonal ice skating rink just down the street from Times Square. The rink will be open all day and into the night until March 2nd, so skaters, you can come down with a date, with friends, or just on your own to enjoy laps around the open-air track for free.
From its origins as a survivalist staple to its modern status as mass-produced gas station shlock, beef jerky might not necessarily come to mind when you think of quality food. Jerky, however, has undergone a similar culinary transformation as other foods with similar histories. It’s joined the likes of coffee, pickles, and sausages as culinary artisans have gone back to craft roots, embracing traditional, small-batch production methods while reclaiming and re-imagining beef jerky at large.
We’ve put together a list of the best craft jerky in the city so you can get yourself a piece of the beefy snack revolution.

There was a time in history when female punk bands ruled the world. Angsty rebel yells from women in bands like Bikini Kill, Hole, and Siouxsie and the Banshees were punk music’s secret weapon- tackling topics on sexuality, feminism, radicalism, etc.
The bristling attitudes that were pioneered from female punk bands set the groundwork for pop-punk and mainstream-pop female artists alike to come out tongues wagging, and gyrating on silver poles-proudly- in the magazines and on TV. One frontwoman in particular possessed the staying power to put the unbridled “fuck-all” attitude back on the map.

The world was shocked and saddened when the news about Paul Walker's tragic death broke this past Saturday, November 30. Today, December 3, the L.A County Coroner's office released the cause of death in the fatal car crash, stating that the late actor, 40, who was in the passenger's seat of the car, died as a result of the combination of traumatic and thermal injuries, while the driver, Roger Rodas, died of numerous traumatic injuries.
What this tells us is that the impact of the crash alone is not what killed Walker. The various horrors that took place, such as the fire that followed, are to blame..
“LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, AYAH IS IN THE BUILDING! I REPEAT, AYAH IS IN THE BUILDING!” Those were the last words spoken as the crowd began to roar, and Ayah Marar took the stage at Long Island’s Aura Nightclub this past Saturday night. The UK’s “Queen of Bass” was on the last stop of her US tour, when she dazzled club goers with a short set that started in the wee hours of the morning; and boy, did she revive the party!
Not many people would brave a heavy duty barbeque joint the day after Thanksgiving, the holiday most synonymous with that favorite of American pastimes--gluttony. Lucky for our faithful readers, we are not most people. On a frigid Friday night, we speed walked to Dinosaur BBQ’s Brooklyn location, open for five months and predominantly constructed from wood salvaged from the Brooklyn waterfront post Hurricane Sandy.
Despite the amount of calories consumed the day before, we were not alone in Dino BBQ. The place was packed, and it looked like everyone was starving, including us. While we perused the menu, we snacked on the Dino Poutine, a light snack of French fries doused in beef gravy and accented with pimento cheese and Dinosaur’s signature pulled pork. This was just the warm up, ladies and gentlemen, for what was about to go down. With a pitcher of Rolling Rock (for $14!) in hand, we decided on the Family Stylin’ BBQ Combination Platter.
