What is the best part of summer in D.C.? Perhaps it’s sweating in places you never even thought could sweat during 90 degree scorchers. Perhaps it’s the unbelievably packed public transit at all hours of the day. For Chef Haidar Karoum, it’s the highly accessible fresh fruits and vegetables from local farmers markets.

Chef Haidar let the BYT team tag along with him on his trip to the Ronald Reagan Farmers Market where he picked out asparagus, sugar snap peas, and red and green spring onions for a vegetable and ricotta dumpling ...

Group House Guide

NYC is the land of roommate situations. If you haven’t lived in one / are currently living in one / just about to move into one then you know people who do. Living with a bunch of strangers and friends never sounds as hard as it actually is. It’s easy to think that if you all keep to yourself, everything will be just fine. Wrong. You’ve never been more wrong. You have to be proactive. You have to be on top of your shit. And you have to be reasonable. Follow our advice, and your house will be running like ...

Hi! I don’t really feel like writing this right now, which I guess I probably shouldn’t tell you, but I have had a harrowing week of spotty WiFi and now that it’s functioning properly I basically just want to be watching brain-melting YouTube videos! Also, my pinky finger is bruised dot com from a Pride DIY gone awry (get your mind out of the gutter // I hammered it while trying to build a makeshift cabana on a Crown Heights rooftop because everyone at the party was dying dot com) and it hurts to type without looking bougie AF, so ...

Hello! I have a stupid summer cold and it is ruining my life! I hope you do not have a stupid summer cold which is ruining your life! Regardless, there is a lot to do this weekend when I am (and/or you are and/or we are) hopefully feeling better!

WELCOME TO THE WEEKEND! I will be babysitting a puppy (follow her on IG at @poseypupbk) and watching the French Open the entire time, but if I had less of a responsibility to animals or sports, I would most certainly hit up any/all of the below INCLUDING but not limited to Brooklyn Pride programming, Northside Festival and a screening of the OG Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: The Movie! Before we get into all of that, here’s some important stuff you may have missed on BYT this week:

We did it! We (almost) survived a very short work week! And there’s a lot of stuff going on the next few days to get excited about, like the fact that I anticipate a solid percentage of disagreeable people being away at Gov Ball! If you’re going, “But I’M going to Gov Ball, Megan!” Then 1. why are you even reading this?! YOU HAVE PLANS ALREADY! and 2. maybe YOU’RE not disagreeable, but there is a certain kind of person that festivals of this nature tend to attract, and if you don’t know who I’m talking about, I am sure ...

BYT Interviews: Andrew Zimmern

Source: Brightest Young Things NYC

Andrew Zimmern speaks in speeches. The television host, author, and advocate for feeding the hungry knows how media works. He chose to get a television show and a decade later, he got a television show (for more on that, listen to this episode of The Alton Browncast). That show has been on the air for over a decade. Anyone that’s binged on Bizarre Foods knows why he’s popular. He’s charming and interested without ever seeming like he’s reading from a script. His welcoming personality makes the world a smaller and more welcoming place.

Zimmern will be in D.C. on ...
