Cheap flights April

By April, your New Year’s resolution is pretty much shot, right? You made it to Valentine’s Day and cutting carbs still didn’t land you a date, so once St. Paddy’s rolled around it was time to drink all those carbs back in the form of green beer. It’s cool, but now that you’re not so worried about counting calories, it’s time to go all in and stuff yourself with tacos, moles, chiles, guacamole, and all the other stuff you’d been depriving yourself of all year. Lucky for you and your newfound ...

The history of the margarita

No drink can bring the same energy to a crowd of people like a margarita. The bright and balanced drink hits all the right levels of sweet, sour, salty, and boozy. It’s the most-loved cocktail in the US, according to a Nielsen survey, and it has been since Nielsen started polling bargoers on cocktails in 2016. The margarita has, in nearly every metric, taken over America. It’s also been bastardized beyond belief. A classic margarita is made with two ounces of blanco tequila, one and a half o...

Dana Perino’s “Queso” Is The Most Cursed Thing You’ll See All Day

Thanks I hate it Okay, I’m not a cook. And I understand that just because something doesn’t necessarily look appetizing doesn’t mean it’s not tasty. There are some gnarly looking dishes that are really good and vice versa. However, there is a line. A line which was established and brazenly crossed this last Super Bowl Sunday when Fox News anchor Dana Perino made “queso” that teeters somewhere between offensive to all those with working vision and straight up blasphemous. I made qu...

Best LGBTQ bars and clubs in the US

Since the opening of Seattle’s The Double Header in 1933, American gay bars have propelled the country’s LGBTQIA community into the mainstream, nearly singlehandedly removing the stigma and replacing it with a feeling of pride and joy. As opposed to your typical run-of-the-mill bar or club, gay nightlife institutions have long been celebrated for their open-minded approach to fun, welcoming anyone over the age of 21 and encouraging them to express themselves in whatever ways they wish. Not on...

AK Monthly Recap: December 2018

And just like that, 2018 is over. December was a nice way to end it, though. I spent most of my time in New York with a few quickie trips to Texas and Massachusetts via Connecticut, and longer time in Mass over Christmas. Each year, I try to crank out my final posts of the year early so I can relax — and I’m glad I pulled it off this year. And every year I stay off business email between Christmas Eve and New Year’s. (Though I did get one urgent press request on December 24 with a due date of D...

A Gay Guy’s Weekend Guide to Eindhoven

Eindhoven is a city that might not be on your list when you plan a trip through Europe, with most people visiting other cities in Holland such as Amsterdam, The Hague, or even Rotterdam.

Coolest fast-food restaurants

There’s a reason most of us hit the drive-thru when we’re craving a Big Mac. Convenience is a factor, but the drab dining areas waiting behind those golden arches don’t exactly make us want to stick around, either. Of course, McDonald’s isn’t the only offender. Utterly lacking in ambiance and originality, most fast-food restaurants deliver what their descriptors promise and nothing more — with a few notable exceptions. Select locations around the world have gone above and beyond to entice din...

REVIEW: Burger King Jalapeno King and Spicy Crispy Jalapeno Chicken Sandwich

As a huge fan of both authentic and inauthentic Tex-Mex cuisine, I’ve always had a penchant for jalapeno peppers. While a few chains add them as ingredients to their limited time only burgers, they nonetheless remain one of the less heralded toppings in the fast food cosmos. Needless to say, if I had it my way, jalapeno rings would be as ubiquitous as burger toppings as onion rings. Thankfully, Burger King has come along with two newfangled, LTO sandwiches that seek to bring a little sweet heat...

Houston restaurant faces boycott after saying it was an "honor" to serve Jeff Sessions

Supporters and opponents of the US attorney general have called for a boycott of the Tex-Mex restaurant that served him, then apologised for doing soIt seems the moment a member of the Trump administration walks into a restaurant, they’ve already put it in a potentially business-threatening bind. In June, the Red Hen restaurant in Virginia refused to serve White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and was besieged with protests, boycotts and threats, forcing it to close for weeks.

Mexican Restaurant Deletes All Social Media After Sessions Photo Backlash

Before and after his speech urging support for “common sense” immigration enforcement measures, Attorney General Jeff Sessions consumed some immigrant culture himself at Houston-area Mexican restaurants Friday.

Chorizo Breakfast Tacos by Dara
