Last night, I went to Beauty and Essex for an after work drink, or two. This is something rather rare for me seeing that most weeknights (Sunday through Thursday) are usually reserved for delivery, Netflix, and hopefully a trip to the gym.
Whatever the reason, whether it's the DJ's personal decision or because he's simply forbidden, realize that you are not the one cutting his check, and therefore he is under no obligation to accept your suggestion.
Prague's party scene is more beer and jazz, less ecstasy and techno. Although not as cheap as it once was, Prague's beer-brewing skills are amongst the best on the planet and you can still party like a king on a peasant's budget.
Rob Fernandez knows a little something about this, as he's cultivated the New York City nightlife for two decades now. Chances are, if you like to party and appreciate house music, you've danced into the wee hours of the morning at one of his events.

I won't specify which neighborhood fits each description in Chicago -- because frankly there may be more than one answer to each option -- but these are the five archetypical parts of a major city, and each of these genres is represented here in Chicago.

Traveling from Tokyo to Melbourne, we also traveled from winter to summer and from all things foreign to all things more familiar. We were surrounded by people speaking English for the first time in over two months on the road and this felt strange to us.

Authenticity and finding it in the fashion industry seemed to be the running theme during the kickoff of the Fashion in Film series. The series highlighted such industry legends as Iris Apfel and Catherine Martin.
