This weekend, I enjoyed brunch at one of my favorite local Mexican restaurants Tomatillo. I was tempted to order my usual margarita, but decided to try a pineapple crusher instead. If you haven’t had one, I highly recommend it — it’s like a Caribbean vacation in a cup. I slowly sipped this pineapple cocktail with a touch of Creme de Cacao and dreamed of the cliffside pools of St. Thomas. Try one of these pineapple cocktails and transport yourself to your happy place.
I really and truly do not condone violence, but if a fight is going to occur, I’m going to pick sides, especially if that fight is between Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber. TEAAAAAAMMMMMM LEGOLASSSSSSS!
According to TMZ, Bloom and Bieber both happened to be out clubbing in Ibiza last night, and eventually got into a confrontation at Cipriani, as you do. You can watch grainy, dark video of the incident in the Daily Mail obtained video above. Reports TMZ:
We’re told Justin ducked the punch. That’s where the video starts and you hear Justin scream, “What’s up bitch?”
We’re told when Bieber left the crowd applauded.

Out Of The Blue, an insanely talented student a cappella group from Oxford University, busted out a medley of Shakira tunes in a charity performance. Each download of the song raises money for Helen and Douglas House, an Oxford children’s hospice. These choir boys are cute enough as is, but when they break out their hip-heavy dance moves, they’re even better! Even Shakira herself loved the performance, and told them so on Twitter. Watch them harmonize beautifully to “Hips Don’t Lie,” “Whenever, Wherever,” and “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa).” [Huffington Post]
Monday’s apprehension of accused child molester Charles Mozdir in New York City is owed not just to the brave police officer and two U.S. marshals who took bullets during the incident; the anonymous woman who recognized Mozdir on John Walsh’s show CNN “The Hunt” and immediately called the police also should be heralded as a hero.

Move over, abortion rights and raising the minimum wage, because there’s a new political cause that is dear to my heart: bringing pandas to New York City! Next month, Rep. Carolyn Maloney is headed to the Chengdu preserve in China, ground zero for baby pandas, and has been encouraged to fill out an application to bring pandas to the city’s most famous zoo. “They didn’t say no,” Rep. Maloney told The New York Daily News, adding that “the greatest city in the world deserves two pandas.” The NYC blog Gothamist noted that back in the 1980s the large, spacious Bronx Zoo (located about a 45-minute subway ride from Manhattan) had visiting pandas, but Rep. Maloney’s specifically interested in bringing the bears to Central Park. It’s more important to me that whichever zoo might house these hypothetical pandas has the appropriate habitat. I’d love to visit pandas a short subway ride away from my digs, but if the leafy Bronx would be a happier home, so be it. Anyway, count me in, Rep. Maloney. Do you need me to canvas door-to-door? Put up posters? [Gothamist; NY Daily News]
Gender non-conforming clothing is becoming more accessible as designers realize that there’s an untapped market for LGBT shoppers. While it’s not too romantic that capitalism is the driving force behind the expansion, it’s very cool to see more well-fitting, traditionally male suits available for women. The fashion industry may be innovative, but it’s often slow to be inclusive, and in this clip, PBS shares what pushed the industry to create more gender-neutral clothes. [ColorLines]
