Katie loves this quaint West Village wine bar that has some of the best tapas in the city. The warm gorgonzola-stuffed dates are other worldly and their plates are perfect for sharing.



3Sunday Funday


Chondita and some friends enjoyed Mister Sunday, a weekly outdoor party in Gowanus.  Rain?  No problem.  Just grab a 16 oz iced sangria and hop on the dance floor. They even had the Michael Jackson and Hugh Grant hand stamps to prove it.



4 Portland, Maine

Jenny was in Portland, Maine for a wedding this weekend and discovered all the best that it has to offer – including chocolate covered bacon and watermelon fudge!




5 Terroir Tribeca


Not once, but twice this week, Christina found herself at Terroir, a sassy little winebar in the heart of Tribeca that boasts a selection of refreshing summer Rieslings at absurdly reasonable prices. Iron Chef contender Marco Canora is responsible for the menu, which contains a veal and ricotta meatball sandwich that will literally seduce you at the first bite.



6White Water Rafting


Erica went white water rafting this weekend in the Poconos – perfect end of summer activity!



7Geek Chic


Our fabulous engineers just got brand new 30″ dell monitors and are super excited. To paraphrase Anna Wintour, “Geek is chic.”


8 Warm Up


Natasha went to Warm Up this Saturday — the outdoor music event held every summer Saturday at MoMA PS1 — and it was amazing.  They have a great line-up of DJs, admission is only $15 and it is held on site at the MoMA’s contemporary art exhibition space. It’s only on for another two Saturdays so definitely worth checking out before Labor Day!



9 OPI – Touring America


Megan loves the newest OPI collection, “Touring America” especially the new dark blue “Road House Blues”.  Every color is related to a specific city and has a story with it. Perfect for fall!


10 Moves Like Jagger


Mikkel can’t get this tune out of her head – and the video is great too.
