As 2012 comes to a close and we gear up for new beginnings, let’s all remind ourselves what our holiday breaks from work are really good for - having extra days to recuperate from our hangovers. So as you let your mistletoe linger just a few nights longer and chug the last of your spiked eggnog, come out to Wall at The W Hotel in South Beach for a week of bottle popping and booty shaking with the most beautiful people in Miami.
Thursday 12/27: Joonbug presents Lush Thursday’s
When the day comes to an end and your ready to settle in and kick off your shoes...just stop. Just stop and remember that beyond your door lies endless opportunities, especially in music. New Yorker's are spoiled and we aren't afraid to admit it. Our biggest one-up from every other city is probably the dynamic music scene that infultrates through just about every borough. No matter what night of the week it is you can opt to get your nightly music fix with these local stand outs that provide musical selections to die for. With that said, check out our Top 5 local DJ's to check out this fall.
Co-Founders Jessica Fafara and Kelly Bruce celebrated the launch of their new marketing and events company, New Regime Group, at the Gansevoort Park Rooftop on Tuesday night. The evening was sponsored by Absolut vodka, Mundial Sports Network, 4am, and Heineken. The musical lineup featured tunes by DJ Julian Cavin, a live performance by Bern & the Brights, followed by a guest DJ set by Blackbook's (and former Joonbugger!) Steve Lewis.

Most people are so blinded by the neon lights of the Strip that they forget all aspects of Vegas that don't involve boas, stripper heels, or some sort of magical illusion. But on Wednesday's episode of Top Chef Masters Rick Moonen of RM Seafood in Mandalay Bay showed America what they were missing out on.
Tri Tip Grill
30 Rockafeller Plaza
New York, NY 10112
A California transplant is taking "steak" in New York. It's not quite a fast food chain (the meat is real!), and it's not a sit down chain restaurant either, but it is a chain, of sorts. Tri Tip Grill is providing New Yorkers with the same grub that made them big in California. They stick to what they know, and do best which is a particular cut of meat called the tri tip. Although not particularly common, do not underestimate the impressiveness of this cut. At Tri Tip Grill is goes something like this:
- The tri tip comes from the part of the sirloin that is flavorful, tender and lean.
- Their meat is Certified Angus Beef, aged for 21 days
- Then it's rubbed in a special marinade and seasoning
- It hits a roaring flame for some brisk searing
- The tri tip is finished in a wood smoker and oven
