Rosé: Because summer is just around the corner.
It’s been a long couple of weeks, as we’ve worked to put the finishing touches on our annual best of the city issue. We’re all exhausted. A low-grade sickness has spread around the office. We’re not eating that well, and some of us are having a hard time getting a good night’s sleep. You see, dear readers, what we do for you?
This could be your backyard.

Yup, it’s that time of year again, where normal people don leprechaun outfits, drink ridiculous amounts of green beer and claim to be at least 1/18th Irish.

Check out these 7 things—all happening this week.
1. You calling me fat?: Fat Tuesday’s today, so join in the debauchery at Townhall and then plan your 40 days of meat-free living.

Visitors to my apartment will attest that I am completely obsessed with magazines. An impressive stack sits beside my bed and several more act as side tables in my living room. Despite what they say about how the “interweb” is going to gradually replace print media, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as actually holding a book or magazine in your hand—you can’t really take your laptop to the beach, or curl up with it in bed. (Well, maybe you can…but you really shouldn’t.)
