Brought to you by nightlife veterans Matt Abramcyk and Serge Becker (Beatrice Inn, La Esquina) the Latin American inspired lounge Super Linda has opened its doors. Complete with horse-racing paraphernalia this Tribeca eatery (chef John Martinez) is stocked with countless beers from South American Countries, and, of course, one of our sipping staples — margaritas.

This weekend (Feb. 26) Los Angeles will hold the 84th Annual Academy Awards — and what an impeccable excuse to plan for some R&R out west. We’ve scooped the scene and find ourselves intrigued by one particular (new) spot: Palihouse. The chic two-story inn displays an idyllic European vibe with 32 guest rooms all enhanced with custom furniture and vintage novelties. Located on Melrose Avenue, Pailhouse, gets us — a lush lobby perfectly equipped for lounging between events and mini-bars stocked with Dean & Deluca goodies. Aaah…

We’re turning on the charm and that means batting our eyes in all the right directions — thick, defined lashes are sure to do the trick.

While in Park City for the 2012 Sundance Film Festival we scouted Flight Boutique on Main street; the trendy shop would soon become our hub for have-to-haves and the cure for all things forgotten. From Elizabeth & James and Diane von Furstenberg to locally crafted accessories, the petite boutique sized up quite nicely when compared to some of our usual go-to spots nestled within Manhattan — and did we mention, an upstairs dedicated solely to sale items (especially rewarding when measured as souvenirs)! The most impressive sight was the bottomless mimosas that loomed only two doors down — in fact, shopping under the influence is encouraged. Cheers.

The 30s era is a captivating time period and any chance to reminisce with a series of original photographs — count us in. Brassai’s, The Secret Paris of the ’30s continues to be one of the most redolent photographic memoirs published; a glimpse into the daring nature of the 1930s nightlife, complete with brothels, whores, pimps and opium dens where high society mixed with the underworld. Images are paired beside excerpts written by Brassai himself, the text describes his surroundings during each shot — the best part, more details are revealed with countless skims through.
