Life Dream Status: Red Robin Debuts Wine Milkshakes

Red Robin will always hold a special place in my heart. It was the most affordable “fine dining” establishment in the suburb a few miles from my small town high school, which made it the go-to place to celebrate birthdays, volleyball wins, SAT scores, and System of a Down CD releases. I spent many late…

Tell Us: What’s The Best Meal You’ve Ever Eaten While Traveling?

The #1 reason I love to travel is also the #1 reason I love to, umm, be alive: FOOD.

This week, it’s bathrooms — more specifically, bathtubs. Here are 15 fairytale bathtubs to inspire you (“ooh I want that!”) and depress you (“there is no way in hell I could ever afford…

Astronaut Chris Hadfield Doles Out Some Amazing Advice For Life On Earth

“If you view crossing the finish line as the measure of your life, you’re setting yourself up for a personal disaster. Commanding a spaceship or doing a spacewalk is a very rare, singular moment-in-time event in the continuum of life. You need to honor the highs and the peaks in the moments — you need…

Meet Your New Favorite Dinosaur: The Pygmy T-Rex!

The Tyrannosaurus Rex is the most popular dinosaur for good reason: it was huge, ferocious, had comically tiny arms, and ate a lawyer off a toilet (LOL) in “Jurassic Park.” What’s not to love? But what if I told you that paleontologists in Alaska just discovered a new relative of T-Rex that they’ve dubbed “Pygmy…

Etsy Spotlight: Words Of Wisdom To Wear Around Your Neck

If there’s any three-word phrase that can instantly calm my control freak, perfectionist self, it’s “Let it be.” I love the sentiment. I love the song.

Great News For Floor Food Enthusiasts: Scientists Say The 5-Second Rule Might Actually Be True

The 5-second rule has been providing a comforting layer of germ security to anyone who doesn’t mind picking dustbunnies off their peanut butter toast for generations. While the theory has generally been dismissed by mature adults and the lamestream media (sorry, I’ve just always wanted an excuse to type, “lamestream media”), a new study suggest…

The Dos & Don’ts Of Shopping With Your Girlfriend

At my boutique job, I see a lot of guys shopping with their wives and girlfriends. Some of them are amazing shopping partners, helping their ladies pick out cute dresses and offering helpful feedback in the dressing room.

Freestyle skiier Gus Kenworthy rescuing a litter of stray puppies off the streets of Sochi was one of our favorite stories to come out of this year’s Winter Olympics.

Any day that the Backstreet Boys announce a new tour is a great day, but when they announce a North American tour to support one of their best albums ever, with Avril fucking Lavigne as a special guest, well, today just became the best day of my life. As awesome as the Backstreet Boys/New Kids

“Nothing”: A Haunting Supercut Of “Seinfeld” Scenes Without People

“Seinfeld” is often described as “a show about nothing,” although in his fascinating Reddit AMA a couple months ago, Jerry Seinfeld disputed that, saying that was never the intention of the show, and never really captured what the show was actually about: social faux pas, and the strange ways comedians get their material. But anywaaaaay, a…

Newspaper Issues Important Correction: Human/Goat War NOT Happening (At Least For Now)

Best newspaper correction ever? I think so. The Argus, a newspaper based in the U.K., ran an interview last week with Richard Robinson, the director of the Brighton Science Festival, and solicited questions from readers.

Style Stealer: Kourtney Kardashian Shows Her Stripes

I could easily write a 10,000 word analysis of the different signature styles of each of the Kardashian sisters (is that sad? That’s sad, huh?), but for now, let me just say that of the three older sisters, Kourtney Kardashian has the realest style. What do I mean by that? Well, compared to Kim’s super-high-fashio…

Thanks, I Made It Myself: 7 Stylish DIY Keychains

My keys are currently attached to three empty metal rings with sad little stumps where cute charms used to be attached, and a portable flash drive that’s covered in some kind of unidentified sticky substance. I think it might be time to freshen things up a bit. If you’re also in need of a keychai…

If your life involves kids in any way, then you’ve probably had the “Frozen” soundtrack on constant repeat in the car, at home, on the computer, and even in your head. (Is “Let It Go” actually playing out loud right now, or does it just exist on permanent loop in your brain? You may never…
