Eat See Play
The holidays are right around the corner, so you know that you’re going to start packing on the pounds pretty soon. With Thanksgiving next week, you’ll be indulging in pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and apple pie (don’t try to deny it) and soon after, all the decadent delights of Christmas will be here.
Taking a vacation is awesome, you know except for that whole packing, getting to the airport two hours early to stand in the security line before getting on a plane where a baby will inevitably scream at the top of its lungs the whole time part.
As Farris Bueller taught us, mental health is just as important as physical health. So CBS Local Eat. See. Play. put together a list of products that even you weirdos who are like “well I want to go to work because I like to feel productive”, will enjoy.
The sound of an alarm clock is probably one of the worst sounds in the world. Seriously, there’s not much worse than being pulled out of a sound slumber, well except for maybe finding out that your girlfriend is cheating on you with your brother (ouch, sorry pal).
Ugh Daylight Savings, one of the worst days of the year. Yeah sure, everyone got an extra hour of sleep the one day it took to adjust to the time change, but now it’s back to only seeing the sun when you walk on the right side of the street during your lunch break before it sets at 4:00 p.m. What joy.
If you’re one of those lucky people who isn’t even scared by the thought of going bald by age 30, well we finally found a Halloween event that’ll leave you shaking in your sneaks.
Choosing a Halloween costume is a critical decision. There are tons of different categories to choose from. You’ve got gory costumes, inflatable costumes, serial killer costumes, funny costumes and of course everyone’s favorite, the highly inappropriate yet extremely clever costume.
Things you think are big: The tab you ran up at the bar last night, the rat you saw on the subway and your… feet. Things that are actually big: The ridiculously long line at Shake Shack, the stain on your shirt, and Space Ibiza New York. Introducing Space Ibiza New York, the brand new, gigantic 20,000 square foot dance club, that’s finally putting the life back into Manhattans night life.
Brookstone is now selling an awesome product to drown out your roommates stomping, singing, and other noises you’d rather not hear… The new 2.4Hz Wireless TV Headphones not only connect to your TV, but also to your stereo, computer, and mobile device.
While the hipsters may be saving record stores around the county with their rediscovery of the vinyl, you can now one-up your Brooklyn friends and play them the artists of the best musical era, the way they were meant to be heard— on a gramophone. You know what a gramophone is…right?
The first things that come to mind when most people hear the words “time travel” is probably the Delorean, awkward oedipal incest, hover craft skate boards… or really anything from Back to the Future. However, for the creative minds who brought us Rains Law Room, it was a more recently fantasy flick— Midnight in Paris.
Childhood horror stories: the scary stories you told at sleepovers after sneaking out of the house, eating junk food, and playing practical jokes. Now as an adult (sort of), horror stories are what you tell your friends on Saturday morning after shamefully sneaking out of girl’s apartments, drinking too much alcohol, and making one too many bad decisions.
Long ago were the days of playing in a sandbox and running away from girls with cooties. Even though you’re still running away cootie ridden girls (good call, you don’t want to catch the adult version), we know the days of unlimited playtime have are gone and have since been replaced with sitting in a cubicle staring at a computer screen for hours on end.
The saying “opposites attract” may work for you and your honeybuns, but the same cannot always be said when it comes to food and drink. I’m not being a foodist here, but somethings just don’t mix very well. Think lima bean ice cream or spaghetti and milk.
