Taproom No.307 – Chilled

This week, were chatting with Mickey Alexander, the beer sommelier at Taproom No. 307 in New York’s Gramercy neighborhood. With 40 beers on tap and 60 seasonal bottled beers available, Taproom No. 307 is in the business of helping people find new beers to try and love. It recently launched its Ultimate Craft Beer Experience, a beer tasting that uses all five senses to learn about the ingredients, brewing process and flavors of different brews. Here, Alexander discusses how he chooses beers for Taproom No. 307’s draft lines and what he’s drinking right now.

Big Apple Circus – Forbes

The 42nd season of the Big Apple Circus is officially in full swing following a festive opening night celebration on Sunday, October 27, with guest ringmaster Neil Patrick Harris. This year’s theme, Extraordinary New Yorkers, is not only reflected in the circus acts, but in the food and beverage offerings at the concessions stand.

Pierre Michel Salon – Guest of a Guest

One of my top five least favorite things in the world? Having my hair washed at a salon. Torture. Waterboarding masqueraded as luxury. Sitting there with your neck craned back, positive that your face looks all sorts of unattractive as you wonder whether opening your eyes will make everything ten times more awkward, or if it’s rude to keep them closed, while small sudsy streams snake down into your ears. In those moments I could truly crawl out of my body.

Style360 – Forbes

STYLE 360 is celebrating its 15th year anniversary at September NYFW featuring returning designers such as Serena Williams, Rosario Dawson and Jessie James Decker among others. This milestone makes STYLE360 the longest running multi-day fashion stage producing shows for celebrity designers.

New York Pilates – Vogue

New York Pilates has quickly become a favorite among the fashion crowd. Brands such as Vestier and ANDAR have collaborated with the studio on press events while editors and publicists alike frequent the studio for work and for pleasure. There is, like with any cool brand, plenty of cheeky merch that can be purchased at every location, too, from a baseball cap with a peach emoji on its front—it’s supposed to suggest a nicely toned derrière (from pilates, of course!)—to T-shirts that boldly read “What the Fuck Is New York Pilates?” But in the workout rooms there is little evidence of Andersen’s personal fashion aesthetic. Instead, attendees typically sport pastel leggings, coordinating sets from Outdoor Voices, or leotards from Live The Process. That’s all about to change, however, with the highly anticipated launch of NYP Tech Sport, a line of sleek activewear that serves as an extension of the already recognizable brand.

Marianne Fonseca – MAXIM

If her star keeps rising, Marianne Fonseca just might become the next Adriana Lima or Alessandra Ambrosio. The Brazilian beauty is already a formidable force in the modeling industry, having posed in campaigns and shows for fashion behemoths like Dior and Hugo Boss. Her picture-perfect physique and captivating gaze have no doubt helped her land covers of Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and Cosmopolitan.
