Sometimes it feels like moms who breastfeed in public can’t catch a break. Or, in the case of a Virginia mother, a few sips of beer.

A woman identified as “Crystal” was thrown out of Big Woody’s Bar and Grill for drinking a beer while she nursed her baby. Crystal says she only had one sip before beginning to feed her 11-month old and was going to drink the rest once she finished nursing. Before she was able to, however, a handful of other customers complained and she was asked to leave the restaurant by management. According to the bar’s co-owner, Jeff Leroy (who was not present at the time of the incident), the issue was less with the breastfeeding and more about the drinking of alcohol. Keep reading »

5 Affordable Rosé Wines You Really Ought To Drink Before Summer Ends

About a month ago, while out to dinner, I was taking a while making my drink selection. After a minute or two, I cocked my head to the side and said to the bartender, “You know what, can I have a glass of the rosé?”

I’d never ordered rosé before, but I felt a sudden urge to try it. And in that moment, without even knowing it, I was participating in a cultural shift that seems to have happened just this summer: magically, rosé is cool again. Not only that, it’s very cool. It’s like, the thing. Keep reading »

8 Good Reasons To Avoid Nightclubs Entirely

clubbing 081114

Only a few years ago, I was not yet 21 and couldn’t go to a club. Since I’m the kind of girl who loves to dance and socialize, I couldn’t wait until I was finally old enough to start partying. But when my time came, clubs weren’t how I expected them to be at all: dull scenes, crap music, and straight-up depressing anti-social patrons that flooded the nightclub scene.

After taking a one-year club hiatus, earlier this summer I ventured to a well-known spot in New York City with a couple of friends … only to find shit even worse than when I promised myself to avoid clubs like the damn plague a year before. Now I think I have eight good reasons now to just avoid nightclubs entirely: Keep reading »

Chances are you’ve seen it. In my completely unsubstantiated estimation, it’s been pinned more than any other cocktail in the history of Pinterest: the “Sneaky Beach Cocktail.” And while I appreciate the ingenuity of hiding booze in a Simply Lemonade bottle, I feel that the recipe  — pink lemonade, strawberries, watermelon vodka, and coconut rum — leaves something to be desired.

Nothing against those who like their cocktails on the sweet side, but I want to taste my ethanol. Alas, the summer months can be tricky if you love darker spirits and heavier brews. The perfect summer beverage should be refreshing, a little sweet, and cold, but you shouldn’t have to suffer through cloying cocktails filled with flavored vodkas and Crystal Light. You should be able to taste your drink and know it’s for the over-21 crowd, even if it’s served with a tiny umbrella.

Here are my top three favorite beverages to imbibe in when the temperatures soar. I suggest you make it a point to try them all before summer is up! Keep reading »
