Google has inked a deal with New York to replace cabs with driverless cars. As if New York cab drivers didn’t have enough problems (I’m looking at you, Uber), Google has signed a deal with the city of New York to bring their patented driverless cars to the New York taxi fleet. De Blasio has announced that there will be 5,000 driverless cabs on the streets by 2016. Each cab will also come equi... More...

Miami Beach Bans Alcohol Sale after 2 AM

Miami Beach Commissioners have approved a ban on alcohol sales after 2 AM. The bad news is, you can no longer buy liquor at sidewalk cafes in Miami Beach between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m. The good news is, it’s still really easy to get coke there. I jest, but not really. If you have ever been to Miami you know that every five minutes someone walks up to you trying to some fake cocaine, but I digress. The ban ... More...

You can have a caviar bar just about anywhere now, and you don’t even need to have Russian friends to make it happen. How many times have you thought “this work meeting would be about 600% better if there was a caviar bar next to the Keurig?” Probably as many times as you wished for one at the Hamptons wedding receptions you attend each summer because people never have original wedd...

I recently stayed at the Hyatt Aruba and loved it. Here’s a recap of my experience. There’s a certain level of stress and bleh (bleh is the official, scientific term) that comes with calling NYC home for more than a few months. The sights, smells, and sounds all up in your soul after a while and at some point you just need to escape. That’s part of why New Yorkers are always skip... More...

This British Gin is made of distilled ants. I know that there are tons of places in the world where eating insects is totally acceptable (basically everywhere but the US), but I can say with complete honesty that I have never tried it. A British distiller named Will Lowe is aiming to change that with ‘Anty Gin’, an alcohol made of distilled ants. Before we delve deeper, we need to ask ourselves wher... More...

If you have ever wondered what its like to die, a new Chinese game called Samadi- 4D Experience of Death should probably go on your bucket list. The game... More...

JetLev is my new fave water sport, here’s why you need to get involved: Until about a week ago, I hadn’t even heard of JetLev. In fact, when I first saw it a few days ago during my recent stay at the Hyatt Aruba, I was taken aback by the futuristic-looking contraption that laid in the water between taking customers on airborne joy rides. Frankly, it looked like a torture device until I sa... More...
