You know it's too late for civilization when tennis and pornography get mixed up in bar talk. Way too late. But it's not over yet.

Hey, Nightlife. It's Not You. It's Me.

Dear long nights and irrationally expensive tabs, it's not you, it's me. I love my couch too much. I love the way my Blu-ray sparkles in the living room light. I love how I have my very own food court just feet away. Is it heaven? No, it's my house. So, I guess yes. Yes it is.

Connor R. McLaren

After some self-reflection, I've realized that I go clubbing for all the wrong reasons, the main one being to meet other guys for romance. After months of doing this with very little success, I can confidently say that alcohol and grinding is not the way to find a well-matched suitor.

Miami Beach is a town marked by transience. Bars and restaurants open and shutter. Luxury condos rise onto the skyline, then fall into foreclosure. Tourists cycle through. Transplants get sucked in, overdose, and move back home.

Whenever I would travel around Europe meeting new people, I always got the same response when I told them I was studying in Berlin. From "how are you alive right now?" to "how many beers can you drink?" to "you must rave every weekend," the reaction was overwhelmingly consistent.

Is Israel Safe for Tourists?

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that Israel is located smack dab in the middle of one of the world's biggest political hotspots. But it does take a few to keep this tiny country along the eastern Mediterranean safe and secure, and that seems to be why Israel is bouncing back big time in 2015.

24 Hours in America's Cultural Hub: New Orleans

New Orleans reminds us of a slew of things, including boutiques, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and did we mention bars? There's no question the Big Easy is notorious for Mardi Gras and wild nightlife, but the scenic streets of these districts hold much more culture and history than many visitors realize.

Brooding and swaying at the bar from the long wait, I see a silent figure under the dim glow of the numerous Edison light bulbs that hang above. It is the one-eyed pirate king, Mori Mortison Monteqleu VII, himself.

I've realized balance is probably something that DJs need more than people with normal jobs, sunlit ones where you can just eat a Chop't salad at your desk and hit Soul Cycle after your last meeting of the day. A DJ's cubicle is everyone's party, and that's not a workspace where balance is easy to achieve.
