My love for Australia has always been more or less unbridled, but I could never let myself fully get lost in the passion due to a little thing called marriage inequality. BUT NOW…now that 61.6% of the population said “FUCK YOU, OTHER 34.8%, WE VOTE YES!” I can become the true biggest fan I was always meant to be. And so our GIF theme for this weekend will be none other than Kath & Kim (the OG version, not the bullshit American failure w/ Selma Blair and Molly Shannon), which is pretty much my favorite piece of Australian television (apart ...

Giveaway: Win a $100 Gift Certificate to Lansdale’s Stove & Tap

Source: AroundMainLine.com -- Food

Rustic American dining. In the heart of Lansdale. Done right. That’s Stove & Tap.

The rustic American restaurant, which opened in March 2016, has singlehandedly revived downtown Lansdale–becoming a community gathering spot.

Now thriving for almost two years since their much anticipated takeover of the former Molly Maguire’s corner locale, Stove & Tap has created a community hotspot.

The interior harkens back to a country inn with dark wood details, simple light fixtures and even a nod to the great outdoors with a touch of taxidermy (albeit soon to be named stuffed bear) in the window—which creates a terrific ...

You guys, I know I say this a lot, but there is a LOT of really good stuff happening this weekend, to the point that I think you will have a hard time narrowing down your options to cram it all in. There’s a weed movie festival ft. CBD-infused butter popcorn, an anime convention (which is where I will be), the NYC Comedy Festival, eight million amazing dance parties, a spirit seance, a grilled cheese extravaganza and so so SO much more, so I hope you’re prepared to have all of the fun! (We fucking deserve it in light of ...

WHY HAS THIS WEEK BEEN AN ETERNITY. I’m v. amped that it’s almost the weekend, partly because of the aforementioned dragging feeling, but mostly because the programming is SO GOOD. Imagine This Women’s International Film Festival is happening at the Wythe Hotel, a new Kusama exhibition is opening at David Zwirner, Elsewhere (Glasslands 2.0) is having its opening weekend with lots of good shows, there’s a goddamn Shania Twain edition of Party Like It’s 1999 (our GIF theme)…the list goes on and on. Before we dive into all of that, here’s what you may have missed on BYT this week:

Y’ALL. It’s Halloweekend! I don’t know what the hell you’re all planning to do, but I’m going to sit snugly on my couch watching Stranger Things (our GIF theme, DUH!) and eating as many Reese’s peanut butter pumpkins as my body will allow! (Exact number TBD!) Should you feel inclined to venture farther afield, there are plenty of options for you to consider below. Before we crack into all of them, let’s first discuss what important stuff you might’ve missed on BYT this week:

Happy anniversary of Black Mirror S3! I am convinced the “San Junipero” episode is the last positive thing to happen to the universe since the fall of last year, so let’s revel by making Yorkie and Kelly (a pairing that literally makes no sense at all, but is still amazing for its embodiment of the U-Hauling stereotype // “I MET U TWICE LET’S SPEND ETERNITY TOGETHER VIA THE CLOUD!”) our GIF theme this weekend! (It’s happening whether you like it or not, because I am the boss of you!) Before all of that, let’s talk about what you may have ...

Hello! Today is the first non-hectic day I have had in over three weeks, so of course my body has decided to go off the rails in an impressively bleak fireworks display ft. ectoplasm exploding out of my nose! (That’s fun code for I’M HELLA SICK AND IT IS P. GROSS! SEND EXPENSIVE JUICES AND MACA POWDER OR SOME SHIT TO HEAL MY LIFE BEFORE THE WEEKEND!) Speaking of the weekend, it is practically that! Congratulations if your health has not failed you! Before we get into all of your choices the next few days (including the opportunity to see ...

Full disclosure – sometimes I don’t leave my apartment for like, three-ish days on end. Or I mean, sometimes I’ll leave briefly to say hello to the man who works at the deli downstairs (who I suspect is in love with me // he has given me many thoughtful gifts like a falafel out of his dinner, unsolicited handfuls of ketchup packets because I “might need them someday”, a free corn muffin on my birthday even though my drunk friend had just knocked over an entire display of Takis, etc.), but other than that, if there’s not really any need ...
