Are you under the age of 35 and living in New York City? If so, according to Vocativ’s Livability Index, you’re in the right place. Their index ranks the 35 best U.S. cities for people 35-and-under based on demographics, rent, jobs, food, entertainment, nightlife, transit, and appeal. NYC is at the top of the list, besting cities like Denver, San Francisco, and Seattle.

Holiday Partiers Rejoice—Your Designated Driver is Here


Holiday party season is in full swing. And, before you throw on your favorite ugly sweater and start throwing back that eggnog, it’s important to have a plan to get home safely.

Luckily, a new app called BeMyDD has this covered. Similar to Uber (which is also running a holiday party promotion), the app allows you to electronically hail a ride but, rather than getting into a provided car, a driver arrives to chauffeur you home in your very own ride—avoiding the next day hassel. New York Daily News reporter Gersh Kuntzman recently tossed back some party punch in the name of investigative journalism and shares his full review here.

Afternoon Pep Rally

Sometimes you just really need a singular cup of quickly brewed coffee to help get you through the 3 p.m. slump. Thankfully, Thrillist has teamed up with coffee guru Lorenzo Perkins of Cuvee in Austin, TX to rank 23 K-Cups from The Keurig K-Cup Brewing System portfolio. Those bewitching late afternoon hours in the office just got a bit peppier.

Your New Favorite Dessert


A Brazilian Brigadeiro bakery is opening up in Soho, and we are ready to be first in line. Forget the cronut, this cross between fudge, caramel and a chocolate truffle has yum written all over it. Bom apetite!

Get an Adrenaline Rush at Hudson Yards



30 Hudson Yards, the Hudson Yards megaproject’s second tower will apparently feature a mysterious “thrill device.”

Some think that the attraction will be a glass walkway connected to the tower’s 1,000-foot-high outdoor observation center located on the 75th floor of the building, which will rise to 1,337 feet. Maybe we will get over our fear of heights!

New York will soon see its first cat cafe


cat cafe

Meow Parlour on Hester Street, which will open on December 15. It’s actually made up of two different spaces, with the second space being right around the corner. All the food will be able to be delivered to the cat space, or you just can stop in at the cafe first. All of the cats in the cafe will be adoptable, and there is a reservation system in place to get a seat. No word on if there are lint rollers as well.
