In Paris to See Gabriel

  In Paris for a few days to spend time with Gabriel, Chelsea and Martin. Though from the moment I stepped off the train I have been in bed achey, stuffed up nose and exhausted. I have slept nearly off and on around the clock. I guess I have a cold I do not have a fever, nor a sore throat. Hopefully, this will pass before I have to go home.          [Author: French la Vie]

History of Irish Coffees

There’s a connotation that mixing alcohol with your caffeinated beverage of choice means you want a way to stay up partying all night. Blame Four Loko and the folks behind the Red Bull Vodka for that. Long before the advent of either of these drinks, however, there was the Irish Coffee, traditionally made as a welcome drink for weary travelers rather than a tonic to keep you awake at the club. The Irish Coffee, unlike a Oaxacan Old Fashioned or Moscow Mule, actually comes from the country th...

Big surprise that the city that gave us Conan O’Brien, Bill Burr, and Patrice O’Neal has a wickedly good comedy scene. Countless comedic geniuses have honed their craft on Boston’s stages, from local-legend regulars who launched from the city’s stand-up clubs to now-famous theater kids who spent their college days moonlighting at improv venues. Nothing warms the soul during dreary winters or keeps things fresh and cool during muggy summers quite like laughter. No matter the season, escape Bos...

Old lady rescues base jumper

A base jumper wound up in a sticky situation recently when he base-jumped off a high-rise apartment building in Acapulco, Mexico. The jump went badly, and the jumper, Kody Kosloski, ended up crashing into the side of the building and dangling helplessly just above one of the apartment’s balconies.
