CULINARY OCCASIONS
Be There or Be Hungry: July's Culinary Festivities

As if you could ever run out of things to do in New York City there are a plentiful amount of food festivals to keep you fueled during you adventures this summer. Generally a tourist attraction, these festivals crawl with locals looking to experience new and innovative foods. Whether home is a plane ride away or a few stops on the subway, you'll have a tasty story to tell when you there.

Thanks to generations of huddled masses, New York City can be home for the Melting Pot Food Tour on Manhattan's Lower East Side. The tour is a cultural event that allows people to learn what different foods represent in different cultures. It takes you through popular areas settled by immigrants like Chinatown and Little Italy, gaining you access to which each area has to offer. This is a repeating tour available from July 10th thru July 31st.

IN THE MIX
[PICS] A Shipload of Fun: Holy Ship! Rages On

While we boring adults toil away at our office desks in 30 degree weather, a shit ship-load of people are having the time of their lives, bikini-clad in the tropics. Holy Ship! set sail last Friday and pictorial evidence has surfaced of what we suspected was going to be the the craziest cruise of all time. Indeed, it is. With Skrillex, Steve Aoki, A-Trak, Diplo, Jonathan Davis, and Tommy Lee amongst others, we had no doubt this was going to be quite the party. Now there's photographic evidence of what we're missing. Laugh now, cry later? Actually, cry now, cry later.

Which reminds us --we need a vacation....or at least a "field reporting" assignment.

V.I.P: VERY IMPORTANT PARTY
Paul DiGiovanni Hosts Fundraising Cruise

Listen up Boston! Want to go on a fabulous sunset cruise, enjoy amazing food/drinks, and be entertained by a rockstar? Guess what. You can!

Saturday, September 10th at 7 pm, Winthrop non-profit The FA Project is having a fundraiser aboard Boston’s Best Cruises’ The Voyager III. Boys Like Girls’ guitarist Paul DiGiovanni will provide entertainment. That’s right; DiGiovanni is appearing at this great event during his time off from touring.

Prepare to be serenaded by DiGiovanni’s ridiculous riffs, but expect a new sound. DiGiovanni is switching gears; instead of the alternative/punk sound Boys Like Girls is known for, he’s focusing on a more jazz-and-blues vibe. The energy level will definitely remain high and intense, even though the sound is different – exactly what Boys Like Girls fans expect.
