Pete Tong's 'Rocktronic Ibiza123' Festival

We’ve heard quite a few announcements of genre-crossing festival’s lately, with Jay-Z’s Made in America and the ever-evolving Lollapalooza. And while I’m definitely a fan of shaking up a festival lineup with a hip-hop artist or two, never in my wildest dreams would I pair EDM with classic rock - a move BBC Radio 1 DJ Pete Tong has boldly made with his “Rocktronic Ibiza123” festival.

Despite my skepticism, Pete Tong’s word is my bible and I simply can not doubt a man with such an incredibly gifted ear for music. After more than 40 years of gracing the wavelengths with masterfully-crafted mixes, what the DJ extraordinaire says, goes. Rock on househeads!

Beauty & Entertainment meet at NYC’s first Theatrically-inspired Salon

Be prepared for a beauty experience like no other when you visit the Parisian-style Michael Fredo Salon on the Upper East Side.

Not only do their gifted team of stylists offer a wide range of services from haircuts to make-up application, but at the top of every hour you will find owner Michael Fredo seated at his piano, crooning hit love songs as well as favorites from his album, “Introducing Michael Fredo.”

Pop star Michael Fredo, a Julliard-trained singer-songwriter known for his hit single “This Time Around,” has performed alongside everyone from Britney Spears to Lenny Kravitz in the past. The nephew of iconic designer Tommy Hilfiger, Michael was inspired to open his eponymous salon when he thought to combine his life’s passions: music & the beauty and fashion industries.

BLUE DOOR
Party Animal's Tuesday Marathon

Miami has entertainment every single day and Tuesday is no exception. If you want to party all night, having dinner is important. We all know how alcohol works on an empty stomach: it doesn’t.

Blue Door is an excellent restaurant located at the Delano, one of South Beach’s top hotels. The “Crabavocat” is just an AMAZING way to start your dinner, especially if you like crab and avocado. Then, it is up to you.

You could go for any main course on the menu (the beef gorgonzola is over the top) or go down the cocktail list and try every single martinis or mojitos. I cannot personally point out a favorite, there are all so good and the bartenders are so helpful and accomodating.

Ink is King at the Mirage

While some might see the convergence of a tattoo parlor and bar as a surefire way to a Gob Bluth-ian "I've made a huge mistake" moment, celebrity tattoo artist Mario Barth doesn't see it that way.

"We're not really a club, nor do we want to be a club - that's a big thing," says Barth of his newly opened King Ink at the Mirage. "There's no dress code or cover. Everybody's welcome, tattoos or not, dressed up or not. We're more like the lounge where you can hang out...but you can also do research for tattooing and have a drink with it."
