With Memorial Day right around the corner, we figured it would be a fine time to put our love affair with the classic hot dog on display. Whether we're grabbing two at the ballpark or firing up the grill on the first nice day of the year, few things go down better with a cold beer than a dog with some spicy mustard. ... continue reading
Few foods allow for such creativity as the humble sandwich. By definition, it's just bread and . . . stuff. PB & J on white? That's a sandwich. A mountain of pastrami and a bit of slaw between rye? Also a sandwich. Wonder bread with lentil soup ladled on top? Horribly messy, but still a sandwich. The truth ... continue reading

While we have a mountain bike that we beat up on occasional weekends, for our daily needs we turn to a ride similar to something you'd see at The New Amsterdam Bicycle Show. The only difference is, our single speed doesn't make grown men drool like babies. The two-wheelers at the show had us gawking like two scantily ... continue reading
There is no food as beloved as pizza. You can talk all you want about the grapefruit ceviche they serve at a little place near you, but we're still going to reach for a good slice of pie if there's some nearby. Whether it's as simple as a classic margherita or as complex as a "Meat Lovers" made with various ... continue reading
Every year, unbeknownst to most of the public, the most outrageous and amazing pieces of audio equipment are tossed (see: very carefully placed) into one hotel for The New York Audio & AV Show. This is not the kinda stuff you get at Best Buy or hook up to the turntable you bought from Urban Outfitters. This ... continue reading
With Facebook shelling out a cool billion for Instagram this week, we’d have to assume there will be some changes in store for the popular photo filtering app. While taking an artsy picture of an old typewriter and slapping a bit of “Walden” onto it might appeal to some, it may not be exactly what every Facebook ... continue reading

We've overheard guys say they don't care what kind of car they drive as long as it gets them from Point A to Point B. Those guys are liars. ... continue reading
No guy looks forward to Valentine's Day. The flowers and chocolates are easy, but expressing our "feelings" in a card is not exactly our speed. We're happy if we don't accidentally grab one that congratulates you on your recent Bat Mitzvah. It's why we have a hard time believing any of the offerings at the local ... continue reading
Some movie titles just work better when you add "in bed." We came up with a few new versions of our favorite movies to illustrate our point.
Contest Closed! Congrats to Winston
We're always down for a good "in bed" joke, so we're giving away a $50 gift certificate to ... continue reading
We have a couple Billykirk Journals full of products we want to buy (which would've been a touch easier if we didn't drop over 100 bucks on each Billykirk Journal). In fact, there's so much stuff out there we want to get our hands on, we often forget the stuff we crave. It's kinda like when you forget you have ... continue reading
The first time I saw a Scion cruising down the road about 5 or 6 years ago, I thought “What is that?” It didn’t really impress me or impact me much at all, but I remembered the name Scion and I began to see the Toyota owned company grow.
Unbeknownst to me, I was not only witnessing a new outlet for modern ... continue reading

This post is brought to you by Braun and is all about style in your city. Thanks Braun!
When it comes to style in our city, the first place we go to mentally is Brooklyn. While you can find Brooklyn's unique collection of stylish guys, vintage goods and delicious food all over the five boroughs, ... continue reading
The idea that art can only be created using brushes, paints and canvases is as ridiculous as a world without the Internet. We're not quite sure about how we feel about a wall-mounted urinal being considered art, but there are plenty of artists making ridiculously awesome works using materials that any normal person ... continue reading

Graffiti has existed for decades as simple gang tags on street corners, illegible writing on subway cars, or bathroom stall words of wisdom on penis size and/or who to call for a ... continue reading
