Friday is here after a long week. So long you might not even really remember what’s been happening around you. Luckily, we have all the articles to keep you on you toes and prepared for the weekend.


Thankfully, the weekend is upon us. As usual, we have some ideas for you to make the most of it in DC, DC (gay), Chicago, and NYC.

Speaking of the weekend, this Sunday is National Dog Day. Check out our updated Dog Guide, or, if you don’t have a pup, our Dog Park Guide for the Dogless.

Did you know that there’s a 311 cruise you can go on? There is. Or you can just read our interview with the band.

More in interviews: Breaking Bad’s Bill Burr is in town tonight, and whether you can or can’t make it, our interview is a good read.

On a slightly grittier note, we brought you the second installment of our “Why Crime?” series. This time we interviewed Joe Kenda, the Homicide Hunter. He talks about interrogation, the human condition, and even the zoo.

We told you what to see, where to stay, and how to eat in Philly and Santo Domingo as part of our other new series, “Get Out of DC.”

Really get out of DC and consider attending Burning Man. We wrote all about why, and included some amazing photos, as well. 

Not on BYT

The VMAs were on Monday. Complex Magazine recapped the award show’s history with its all time best performances.

Meanwhile Elle recapped this year’s show…in its shadiest moments.

The drama really is the important part of any awards show, but in case you want a more well rounded summary, here’s Time’s list of “Best, Worst, and Most Surprising Moments.”

One thing we learned from the VMAs is that K-Pop has been having a moment, mostly thanks to BTS. Vox wrote all about it.

Moving on from the VMAs, the world becomes more and more like a science fiction movie every day. Now, robots are making burgers.

And more on the world becoming a sci-fi movie, call Scully and Mulder, because there’s a strange light appearing over Canada. We’re calling it STEVE.

Politics this summer have been…eventful, to say the least. The New Yorker’s “Daily Shouts” made a playlist highlighting the best of it.

The mahjong scene in Crazy Rich Asians was more complex than you thought.

But what about animal cracker rights?

Death by Yoga Ball is certainly one way to go.

We’ve all found ourselves crying in a grocery store at one time or the other. This story about Crying in H Mart is particularly touching.
