With the opening of Simulcast on November 18th, Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment is finishing up the final touches for their grand opening on November 23rd. Two years in the making, and $85 million later the entertainment center is ready for business. An eventful destination for all, the venue features on-site betting for horse races, delicious food, and joyous happy hours.
Simulcast, a year round betting center, sports a comfortable atmosphere and separate entrance where guests are welcome to watch the games from the television screens. The exclusion of individual betting tables allows Simulcast to maintain a calm vibe. Within Simulcast is Race World, a separate room that has a $3 entrance fee and individual betting tables that seat up to 104 people. Serious betters will want to scope out the V.I.P. Lounge where they are able to bet on different countries from thier own individual betting table. However, entrance is by invitation only. The Broadcast Center is the studio where hosts can interview the drivers live from the track and provide the audience with updates. An open bar, food court, and cafe can be found nearby, allowing guests to casually make their way around the grounds as they decide to order burgers, tacos, or pizza.
Bars can be stressful places. The secondhand smoke, blasting music, and dim lights can make it feel like you're drinking in a cave. SoFi Public House in Miami has taken great care to ensure that they raise the standard of nightlife by eliminating smoking in their atmosphere--a pioneer in the world of Miami bars. No more squinting through ashy clouds of smoke or washing down the burning sensation in your throat. The high top tables fold into the walls to make room for more people (getting rid of the sea of elbows that block your path to the bathroom). SoFi Public House has the trappings of a neighborhood bar without the pretentiousness of having something to prove. Pool tables and dart boards adorn the front of the bar, while a jukebox fills the air with music without piercing the eardrums. The result of these thoughtful adjustments is an incredible improvement on the bar experience. Couches in the back add to a more welcoming mood, where you can sip cocktails with your friends or catch the game with fellow fans.SoFi Public house is open every day from 5:00pm to 5:00am 423 Washington Ave Miami Beach, FL 33139

The Museum of Sex has a brand new Art Bar called Play, and it will open to the public on Thursday October 10th. Play lures the inquiring customer to come inside and discover sexuality through all the senses.
Tucked away on East 27th street, adjacent to the Museum of Sex, Play is dimly lit and eager to please. As soon as you walk through the doors, you are greeted with sweet and spicy aromas. Soft purple and orange lighting set the mood in the den area. The space is very intimate and exclusive, which helps the patron feel comfortable enough to start exploring the world of sexuality through food, drink and art. Songs like “Pony” by Ginuwine and “Rock Your Body” by Justin Timberlake linger in the background to help set the mood. The swanky leather couches allow people to sit in their own little private nooks between tall shelves of books. Different erotic and enticing art pieces engage the viewer with strong visual appeal. There is also a multimedia installment on one wall called “What is Mine Is Yours," by Dana Gringras, which plays on repeat through small cutouts in the white brick wall.

This weekend we celebrated a birthday, and we chose Distilled in Tribeca to host it. It was a good decision. We highly recommend going there to celebrate any life event or to kick it with friends.
The first thing that happened to us upon our arrival was that we recieved a hug from the hostess when she learned it was our birthday. Alhtough not usually a fan of "stranger hugs," this one was different, without the slightest tinge of that awkward feeling.
Before we talk about the food, we should mention that the service is perfect. Neither dripping with insincere sweetness nor overly aggressive, you have the feeling you are well taken care of by happy people who genuinely want to be there. We know, that never happens in New York. It's one of those things you have to see to believe.
On Tuesday, September 17, Joonbug was cordially invited to The Royal, a sports bar and lounge located south of Union Square on Fourth Avenue, to sample the chic atmosphere and strong drinks. The bar stretches the length of the venue lined with ample stools, offering plenty of room for you and your posse. If you prefer something cozier, however, spacious booths are available in the back. These booths are also a good option for sports enthusiasts, as they give a direct view of the television sets, which are always tuned to ESPN.
