The best way to avoid a hangover is simply to drink earlier in the day. You’ll get a great buzz going and can be sober before bedtime. Fortunately, there are plenty of places in New York City where you can have your brunch and drink too! A trip to any of these places will provide not only higher spirits, but a bit of a cultural experience as well.
Enjoy eggs benedict topped with a jalapeno hollandaise sauce with your choice of unlimited Sangria, Mimosa and Bloody Marys at this tapas spot on Hudson Street in Manhattan. At $25 you can pair you unlimited indulgence with anything on the menu.
What a long strange trip it’s been.
After four days of battling the blistering heat, sleeping under the Tennessee stars, wandering about the 700-acre campground and singing along with musical legends, my body is begging for rest. My feet are worn, my eyes are slipping shut, my fingernails are buried under heaps of dirt. But I survived my first Bonnaroo, and live to tell the tales of an extraordinary weekend.
The eleventh annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival gathered more than 80,000 music lovers to the small town of Manchester, Tennessee for four days of peace, love, and music. While Woodstock may have pioneered the festival movement in America, Bonnaroo has taken over where the hippie extravaganza left off. Bustling with eco-friendly activism, throngs of naked bodies twirling around and mudslides forming across the farm, Bonnaroo successfully transformed technology-obsessed Americans into carefree and wild-spirited festi-lovers - if only for the weekend.
The small town of Manchester, Tennessee has welcomed the bulging crowds of Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival for eleven years - opening its quiet roads and grassy knolls to infiltration by hippies, hipsters, burnouts, ravers, rockers and every other category of music lovers imaginable. Giant RVs, cars stuffed to the brim with supplies and hitchhiking hopefuls invade the nearby Walmart en route to the festival, gearing up for four days of foregoing electricity and showers in favor of nature exploration and musical madness. Excitement flairs during the hours-long wait to the entrance, everyone eager to set up camp and start boogying down!
Techibeats and Danceland have teamed up to bring the Los Angeles bass music community a show of epic proportions.
Mimosa resides at the pinnacle of big room, dance floor shaking party music. His ever expanding talent makes him one of the most versatile producers and exciting performers in the industry. His sets are packed with his classic remixes and bass heavy originals. Indescribable energy. Check out this video of him live at the Cannery Ballroom in Nashville earlier this year.
ill.Gates's inclusion in this lineup makes it a truly special event. He is a pioneer amongst Ableton junkies and bass heads alike. When it comes to outrageous productions of beat driven maximalism, he sits on the throne with his frequent studio collaborators Bassnectar and Jantsen. His ingenuity and originality are unparalleled.

It’s about time San Francisco got a fresh, new brunch spot. We can all thank Ryan Scott, of Mission
Beach Café and Top Chef fame, for bringing us just that: Brunch Drunk Love at Bruno’s. As if the Mission district couldn’t get any hotter this time of year, you now have a delicious new location to enjoy some tasty breakfast and lunch items. Be warned, Scott is only poaching eggs and flipping pancakes on weekends from 10 am to 4 pm, all other hours belong to the bar.
With the weekend finally here, us ladies are all scrambling for new, fresh outfits. Well you can stop looking because Jessie Boutique, with stores in South Beach and Aventura and a website jessieboutique.com, has an outfit for any occasion and at any price. Whether it be a dress for a Friday night out on the town or a casual, yet chic, brunch ensemble, this boutique has more than enough options to help you achieve the look that you’re going for.
Being new to the Miami scene, I found myself staying away from that pesky mall traffic and searching for a good clothing boutique...a.k.a my oasis. One afternoon, while looking for my birthday get-up, I stumbled upon Jessie Boutique in South Beach and found more than I bargained for. Upon entering, I was welcomed by gracious sales girls and racks upon racks of dresses, skirts, shorts, tops, and denim, along with a nice assortment of jewelry and accessories. Well-known brands such as Diane Von Furstenberg, Halston Heritage, Foley & Corinna, and Elizabeth and James can be found making their home here along with some fresh up-and-comers like Patterson J. Kincaid, Haute Hippie, Aaron Ashe, and Dallin Chase. With the great selection and wide range of prices ($38-$595) to choose from, this trip that I had set aside two hours for suddenly became a twenty minute breeze. Dress and accessories in hand, I walked out happily knowing that this wasn’t going to be my last trip here.

Yellow! Well actually, Mimosa. Pantone announced color PANTONE(R) 14-0848, Mimosa, as the winner yesterday. It’s not surprising when you consider the plethora of yellows that graced the runways for the spring 2009 collections. Nor is it surprising when you think of what yellow/mimosa, symbolizes. The bright, sunny color is the emblem of the hope and optimism with which we have to approach 2009 after a difficult 2008 comes to an end. There also happens to be a delightful cocktail by the same name, so why not start 2009 with mimosas all around!
