SantaCon is more than just dressing up in Christmas attire and getting wasted (even though that's the best part of it). In most cities, like New York, SantaCon is affiliated with charitable good works and donations. In 2011, Santacon New York raised $10,000 for Toys for Tots and donated over 6,000 pounds of food to Manhattan and Brooklyn food banks. SantaCon reminds us to have a good time and celebrate the season, but also to spread cheer and goodwill.

Let’s be honest, New Year’s Eve can be very overwhelming. There are endless pressures and options that make it difficult to decide how to celebrate. For those on the West Coast who have chosen to take their New Year’s Eve celebrations to Lake Tahoe in California for SnowGlobe, get ready for three days packed with a stellar lineup, amazing people, and the beauty of the outdoors.
SnowGlobe recently announced the schedule for the three day festival, and it’s definitely one you don’t want to miss out on. The first day sees performances from Gramatik, Kastle, Tiesto, Justin Martin and many more. If the first day’s lineup wasn’t enough, day two is stacked with performances from Kill Paris, Zeds Dead, Claude Vonstroke, and Kaskade. New Year’s Eve will feature Dillon Francis, Snoop Dogg/Lion, Treasure Fingers, Cashmere Cat, and will ring in 2014 with Cut Copy. To see the full schedule, click here.

These differences create distinct flavors for each beer category. For instance, fermenting at warmer temperatures brews a beer high in esters (a unique flavor component of ales), while the specific strains of cold-thriving lager yeast each imbue their own flavors on the finished lager, as does the degree of cold they were fermented in.
Now where does lager come from? Lager, it turns out, it has a long and interesting history. Though it's has been around for six centuries, it’s still a relative newcomer in the beer world. Beer--the world’s oldest alcoholic beverage--has been around since 3000 BCE. Before lager, however, “beer” meant ale: people could only be brew in warm environments, where Saccharomyces cerevisiae thrives. Around the beginning of the fourteenth century, however, Saccharomyces cerevisiae hybridized with Saccharomyces eubayanus, a distantly related, cold-loving yeast from Patagonia, to create Saccharomyces uvarum. Saccharomyces eubayanus traveled over 5,000 miles from the southernmost tip of South America to southern Germany and merged with Saccharomyces cerevisiae, transforming the beer landscape forever.
Dearest Joonbug readers, we are happy to announce that we have teamed up with The Beat of New York, 103.5 KTU, to offer you a chance to win a ticket to one of the hottest New Year's Eve parties in New York City!
And what's better than one party? Two of course! Weekend winners will all qualify for a trip to Miami to watch Calvin Harris perform live at the Life in Color Music Festival, courtesy of Columbia Records. Sun, music, and paint--now that is a party.
It's that time of the year again- the Grammys have finally announced the 2014 nominees for its 56th annual awards ceremony, which will air live on January 26th. To no surprise, but very much deserved, Daft Punk have scored four nominations in the following categories: Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Dance/Electronica Album.
Having already won six Grammys, Skrillex has stepped aside to allow artists such as Disclosure, Pretty Lights, Duke Dumont, and Armin van Buuren a shot at winning the prestigious award. 2014 will also see the return of past nominees Calvin Harris and Kaskade, who will be at heads with one another in both "dance" categories.
Just in time for the holidays, Hotspot, a brand new and innovative social media application, is now available for download through the App Store! Hotspot offers a more genuine way of connecting with others. Unlike most social media apps, Hotspot isn’t about finding new friends; it’s about connecting with your current ones. Creators Jeff Ames and Jasjit Singh realized that the discovery of new people was not the issue in social communication, but rather the actual convening of these people as “friends” in reality. Hotspot allows users to locate and contact one another for any social event, whether it be for bar hopping or impromptu meet-ups. Unlike texting, this messaging service enables the user to send out one mass message regarding an event—what, where, and when, along with turn-by-turn directions and also who is going to be there or on the way. Even better, the app is not a closed service. This means that even your those without Hotspot will receive a text message providing a link to open all of the event information in their browsers.
