LA comedians hit the road for laksa, chicken rice
Jan 16, 2015 10:00 am

And if you're traveling for food, Singapore might as well be your first stop. Do it like the locals do: order a tableful of food and strategically devour. Ready for some prime hawker center porn?

12 Places To Drink Really Well In Sydney, Australia

There's been a small bar revolution in the city
Jan 14, 2015 11:00 am

By the time 2008 rolled around, the cocktail revival was already peaking in many cities around the globe — yet not Sydney. Until that point, nightlife in Australia's most populous town had been dominated mostly by large operations, who could handle the hefty licensing fees and complex bureaucracy. However, new legislation that year made it suddenly easier to open so-called small bars (with a capacity of 120 people or less), and Sydney's cocktail scene exploded. Here's where to drink well.

We're Totally Going To BottleRock Napa Valley In May! You?

The vino's superb. The music lineup? Even better.
Jan 6, 2015 3:30 pm

We'd abandon FR Headquarters to go see any combination of the headliners slated for this year's BottleRock Napa Valley, May 29-31. Think non-stop tunes from bands, the best food and booze we've likely ever consumed a great deal of at a music festival (no offense to to the lobster roll truck sitting there in 90-degree heat) and just...SO MUCH WINE. And No Doubt. And Snoop Dog. We'll have whatever Robert Plant is drinking, frankly.
