Growing up in a Jewish household gifts you have many anecdotes to share at a not strictly kosher – I said strictly, OK? – dinner party. You can talk about the scientific differences between regular best friends and camp best friends, why learning twelve years worth of Hebrew has still left you embarrassingly unilingual, and the […]
Listen, we’re not total anarchists here. Laws can be great – even as they pertain to alcohol. For instance, we think we can all agree that ”don’t drink and drive” is a pretty solid law. The whole ”no drinking before you’re twenty-one” is fairly (fairly, OK?) reasonable as well. However, there are some alcohol laws […]
The perfect seafood dinner can only be improved by adding a stunning ocean view in the background, and a glass of wine on the side. While there are some classic wine and fish pairings out there, we wanted to be extra thorough and make sure that no matter what kind of aquatic dish you’re enjoying, […]
None of us want to admit it, but sadly, summer is coming to a close. Depending on where you live, temperatures may or may not be dropping, but no matter how sweltering it is outside, a feeling of finality is starting to form in the air. Kids are looking more forlorn, stores are already hocking […]

With America’s latest bid to get healthy and the general decline of snack culture (that’s something we just made up), some of our favorite treats have become a thing […]
While the Negroni has long been a classic cocktail, this Italian drink is coming back in style with full force. Any cocktail bar worth its salt has the ingredients in stock to whip you up a Negroni.

Look, many of us are guilty of enjoying a cocktail or two during the air travel experience. Whether it’s sipping a Bloody Mary before your flight, or whipping up a drink while in the air, booze and airplanes go hand in hand.
