THE HOT LIST

What’s going on in June? From getting high in California to dropping into a black hole on the big screen, this month’s happenings are anything but same old.

Hot-List_01"Preacher" on AMC & On Demand
Comedy superstar Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Breaking Bad‘s Sam Catlin developed a new series based on the bestselling comic about a supernatural preacher who joins forces with a vampire. The result is gritty, funny as hell and full of badass characters.

"No Stranger Than Love" in theaters & On Demand June 17

Who doesn’t love a good quirky rom-com? Just as Lucy (Alison Brie) tells a married Clint (Colin Hanks) that she loves him, he falls into a deep black hole in the middle of her living room. Now what? Buy your ticket to find out.

 

Sonoma County Hot Air Balloon Classic June 18-19
June marks the 26th anniversary of this amazing two-day event in Windsor, California. The Hot Air Balloon Classic sets off 30 hot air balloons that dot the wine country sky. Set your alarm because we recommend getting there no later than 5AM to get the full experience. You won’t have time to snag breakfast before, but worry not – the event hosts food trucks – and most importantly, mimosas – to ease you into your early start.

 

BastionBastion is our new favorite spot in Nashville. With its quirky and comfortable vibe, it’s the ideal place to unwind and hang with your crew (the nachos and bar games don’t hurt either). Their just-opened kitchen and 24-seat restaurant, which is located through a secretive sliding door in the bar, takes only limited reservations but is totally worth any wait for Chef Josh Habiger’s seasonal creations.

 

Underwood Wine in a CanIntroducing the hot stepsister to wine in a box: wine in a can. Perfect for backyard barbecues, summer festivals or sneaking into the movies. Our fave? Rose. Rose all day, my friend.

Yes to Lip Oil

A lot of makeup brands have been rolling out new versions of these. They add shine with less stickiness than a gloss and they’re infused with essential oils that leave your lips kissably soft – a must for days in the sun and nights in the dark.

Meet The Models of Summer 2016

Meet the modelsThe gang’s all here. Get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of our latest campaign shoot and get to know the models making summer 2016 sizzle. Can we get a hell yeah?


Midwest-raised Devon Windsor attributes her career to expanding not only the number of stamps on her passport but also her palate.


From high school football star to model on the verge, Torin Verdone is one to watch – and that won’t be hard with those piercing baby blues.


Henry Watkins is a triple threat. He’s ridiculously good looking, plays multiple instruments and volunteers his time to children.


Daughter of a Hollywood icon, Sistine Stallone likes to rock out to 90’s rappers. So nostalgic and we love it.

How about a different kind of pose?

Now it’s time to get more familiar with their looks. Shop new arrivals for women and the latest styles for men.

8:15AM – WORKOUT AT MODELFIT

RuPaul said it best: You better work. And work like a supermodel you will. modelFit is responsible for sculpting many of the concrete jungle’s top models (and our fave Karlie Kloss). Lucky for you, you have the chance to see what all the hype is about. With an assortment of classes focusing on slower movement and working smaller muscle groups, you are sure to get those model-behavior endorphins flowing. Bonus: First-timers get a special rate, so sign up ahead!

9:30AM – BREAKFAST AT EGG SHOP Ahhh, the egg sandwich. It’s magical right? Egg Shop owners, Sarah Schneider and Demetri Makoulis, certainly think so, and have combined their love of the egg sando with Chef Nick Korbee’s creativity to take the bedrock breakfast ingredient to so many versatile levels. Like many incredibly good spots in the city, Egg Shop is walk-in only but, if there’s ever a line, it goes quickly! Try the Matcha tea and choose between a sandwich or cruiser (that’s Egg Shop talk for bowl) – our faves include the Spandex, the Scrambler and the Reformer.

The Whitney

11AM – CHECK OUT THE WHITNEY MUSEUM

Recently relocated from the Upper East Side to a downtown spot next to the High Line, the Whitney Museum has just as much beauty to be viewed on the outside as there is on the inside. Come for the stunning architecture by Renzo Piano, floors of contemporary art and Insta-worthy skyline views. Tickets are $18-22; bring a student ID if you have one.

The Whitney

12:30PM – WALK THE HIGH LINE Want a quick escape from the bustling city streets? Once the New York Central Railway, the High Line was recently converted into an amazing 1.4 mile walkway along the Westside Highway. Check out unique art installations and landscapes in an entirely outdoor setting.

Ruby's

1:30PM – LUNCH AT RUBY’S

It’s lunchtime and you’re on the border of getting hangry. Thankfully, we’ve got you. Ruby’s is a cash-only Australian café with a menu full of amazing dishes. Get the Whaley’s Burger, which features premium ground beef, tomato, lettuce, beet, pineapple, fried egg and ketchup. (Ed. Note: Just went into a food coma while thinking about it.)

Ruby's

Blue Bottle Coffee

3PM – GRAB A BLUE BOTTLE COFFEE

But first, coffee. We hear you. Before you jet to your next location stop in to Blue Bottle Coffee to grab a quick pick-me-up. With BBC’s promise to only sell coffee less than 48 hours out of the roaster, you are guaranteed to have peak flavor java that will keep you moving throughout your day.Blue Bottle Coffee

5PM – HAPPY HOUR AT TEN DEGREES On top of a huge menu of scotches, whiskeys and bourbons, this Saint Marks bar offers something truly rare in NYC: an epic happy hour with two-for-one drinks from noon to 8 p.m. daily. Fuel up after your long day with a charcuterie plate or some avocado toast from their menu.

8PM – DINNER AT RUBIROSA Located in Little Italy, Rubirosa is known for their authentic Italian, but it’s way more than your average pizza joint. Arguably the best pizza (and pasta) in the city, this cozy hotspot deserves all of its popularity. If forced to choose (yeah, we hate that too), the Vodka Pizza and the Eggplant Parmesan are our go-tos. Dessert you ask? The Flourless Chocolate Cake is to die for.

10PM – DRINKS AT ANGEL’S SHARE Enter the unmarked side door next to East Village Japanese restaurant Village Yokocho and you’ll come across this tiny treasure of a speakeasy with tuxedo’ed bartenders and expertly crafted in-house infusions. It’s got a grownup vibe and strict house rules limiting noise and big groups, but it’s a one-of-a-kind NYC experience.

 

Acme

11:30 – HIT THE FLOOR AT ACME

Acme’s sleek downstairs bar is the perfect place to end the evening – dancing the night away. Resident DJs spin until the wee hours and house cocktails like the Foxy Brown are dangerously good. A dancefloor, DJ, your squad. What more do you need for that natural high that’s worth a million bucks? We promise it’s well worth the hangover.
