Welcome back to another weekend, you guys! And it’s not just ANY weekend, either; it’s the US OPEN FINALS! I went to the quarter-finals yesterday and it was pretty much the best day of my life, so if you have the means to grab a ticket and go to either the semi-finals or the actual finals, you should PROBABLY DO IT!

I hate fashion!” then CALM DOWN because there are plenty of things to …

Great News! The Great British Bake-Off Is Still Real Good!

I’ve been an outspoken advocate for the Great British Bake-Off (or as some of you from Netflix will know it, Great British Baking Show) for quite some time now, and have watched every season with help from janky YouTube uploads and generally laborious Internet hacking. And, like many people, I was deeply, deeply hurt and offended when the band broke up due to a network shift; judge Mary Berry and hosts Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc pledged their allegiance to the BBC, while Paul Hollywood, the Simon Cowell of baking competitions, decided he was cool with taking the show …

If I had a dollar for every time I shelled out for an overpriced cup of pour over coffee, I’d be slightly less impoverished than I am due to the aforementioned times I have shelled out for an overpriced cup of pour over coffee. That’s why it’s P. TIGHT that Dripkit has come along! Dripkit (an Ilana Kruger and Kara Cohen enterprise) is a Brooklyn-based startup that hopes to bring us all portable, pocket-sized pour over coffee technology so that maybe, JUST MAYBE, we will not have to constantly settle for hitting up bougie cafes on the go. All it …
