Best winter day trips near NYC

Winter in New York City can be brutal; temperatures can drop into the negatives, and you’re likely to see people resembling the Michelin man with all the layers they’ve packed on. While there are plenty of activities to do within the five boroughs during this time of year, such as outdoor sports or cozying up somewhere to avoid the cold, sometimes you just need to get away and maybe even see some real, clean snow. Luckily, the Big Apple is in a great location with easy access to other places...

The list of Pac-12 contenders for the 2019 Heisman Trophy starts with the unknown unknown

In this space one year ago, the Hotline correctly identified the Pac-12’s top Heisman Trophy contender for the 2018 season — in concept if not in name: “If 2018 plays out like 2017 and 2016 and 2015,” we opined, “the Pac-12’s top candidate is not currently considered a top candidate.” At the time, Gardner Minshew wasn’t even on a Pac-12 roster. The most predictable aspect of his emergence on the Heisman scene was its unpredictability. The 2015 season was supposed to be about Jared Goff as the Pa...

Trump’s Companies Boosted Foreign Worker Visas To 10-Year High In 2018

President Trump may have ratcheted up his anti-immigration efforts in recent months, but his family companies appear to be using foreign workers at a higher rate than ever before. The Trump Organization requested and received at least 192 visas for foreign workers in 2018, according to Department of Labor data. That number appears to be the highest for the company going back to at least 2008 and likely much earlier, based on public records. The nearly two decades’ worth of data were pulled to...

Clippers’ Montrezl Harrell proving he’s a willing passer in the post

LOS ANGELES — Montrezl Harrell is looking out for his teammates. As his breakout season continues, Harrell is proving impactful in ways beside the scoring column – where his contributions have been significant: He entered Wednesday’s game against Utah averaging 16 points, fourth-best among NBA reserves and a reason the Clippers’ bench is on pace for the highest scoring average (52.6 points per game) in more than 30 seasons. But Harrell said he’s committed to becoming the most complete version of...

Best airport bars in the US

Grabbing a stool at an airport bar generally means selecting an overpriced, watered-down cocktail or a short pour of wine from a sticky laminated menu. A new crop of airport bars is changing that, none more so than Root Down in Denver International Airport. The Denver airport is one of the best places to grab a drink during a long layover or delay in general. New Belgium Brewing has a hub in the airport, and Vino Volo serves up fine wine with cheese plates. Few bars match up to Root Down in ...

Argument analysis: Justices weigh text and history of 21st Amendment in challenge to state residency requirement for liquor licenses

Ratified in 1933, the 21st Amendment ended Prohibition – which (fun fact!) was established by the 18th Amendment, ratified 100 years ago today. It also gave states broad power to regulate alcoholic beverages. At today’s oral argument in Tennessee Wine and Spirits Retailers Association v. Blair, the justices considered exactly how expansive that regulatory power is. In particular, does the 21st Amendment allow Tennessee to impose a two-year residency requirement for anyone who wants a retail lice...
