You won’t find NYC’s coolest new cocktail spot in Williamsburg or the West Village this summer. Rather, it’s all the way out in Queens, at the just opened – and most hotly anticipated – TWA Hotel at JFK International. Yes indeed, you will find the cognoscenti hanging at the airport this summer, as the stunningly revived Eero Saarinen-designed masterpiece that was his 1962 Trans World Airlines Terminal now houses not one, but three new venues from hospitality hotshots Gerber Group – who forever changed the way we think about and drink at hotel bars starting with The Whiskey at the Paramount back in 1991.
If you happen to be in the general vicinity of Yuma, Arizona between now and May 30th, and are looking for something to intrigue (and possibly startle), you may want to detour to the Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area . There you’ll find artist Tim Youd under a tent in the intense pre-summer heat, typing Cormac McCarthy’s 352-page novel Blood Meridian or The Evening Redness of the West , first published in 1985 but set in the mid-nineteenth century West . And he’ll be hammering away on an ancient typewriter, not a computer

In the late ’80s and early ’90s, there seemed to be an inordinate number of up-and-comers whom the press were labeling “Prince protege.” It wasn’t really much of a surprise – after all, who wouldn’t want that title?
For the last five years or so, the online dating game has been rigged. The big-name dating websites from the early ’00s would simply present single people to each other, and the apps littering singles’ phones today give a never-ending stream of faces and torsos demanding the smallest amount of attention
Texas is once again playing host to Dior. Specifically to Dior: From Paris to the World , an exhibition that follows the history of the exalted Parisian house, opens this week at the Dallas Museum of Art. It features legendary styles from founder Christian Dior himself, naturally, to current Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri’s spring ‘19 haute couture collection
Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, Rome For many of us, the shock still lingers, a sense of loss still hangs heavy in the air. The heartbreaking June 2018 suicide of Anthony Bourdain was not just about the passing of a beloved celebrity – but that of someone who affected us in a significantly more profound way, allowing us to understand the joy of food and the complexity of people all over the world, at a time when it seemed most necessary to do so.
What we’ve come to particularly appreciate about Björk , is her ability to stare our stark, bleak reality in the eye, and then artistically interpret it into something seemingly so magical and fantastical.
As if it even need be said, few things command our immediate and full attention as a woman in a chainmail headdress. And Brooklyn based model-songstress Sara Kendall dons exactly that in the video for her new single “Fantasies” – though with strings of stark black beads cascading down on either side, and her clutching a pair of broken chains, she’s admittedly a particularly intimidating presence. The lyrics tell a story of pushing on through a poisonous relationship, something which probably hasn’t changed all that much since the 13th Century
