And now, six life-improving facts await you...

Culture-Wise, You’ve Got a Lot to Look Forward To

Once again, we’ve rounded up the finest films, festivals, books, music and anything else you may want to throw on your calendar this month. And the next few weeks are particularly stacked: there’s a new docuseries based on Hugh Hefner, the Tribeca Film Festival, that long-awaited new Gorillaz album and a decent excuse to book a trip to Paris. Not that you needed one.

You’ll Want to Visit These New Hotels

For starters, you’ve got a modern Bali escape with 24-hour cocktail service and a rooftop jacuzzi with a live DJ. Then there’s the boutique hotel in the Bahamas with three rum bars and much potential for horseback excursions. And let’s not forget the New Zealand spot with emergency bow-tie service, nor the pair of New York hotels with killer views. It’s okay, you don’t have to choose just one.

We Packed Your Bag for a Weeklong Trip to the Amalfi Coast

Looks like you’re heading there with a handsome navy trolley case containing a slim-fitting herringbone linen blazer (for keeping you warm-ish while you consume Campari on your villa’s balcony), Todd Snyder boardshorts (for a little Americana flair) and tan leather espadrilles (because you’re on vacation, after all).

Your In-Theater Dining Options Have Improved Dramatically

Sure, you could stick with the age-old combo of popcorn, 64-ounce soda and Raisinettes. Or you could go to one of these theaters and watch a movie while clutching a fresh lobster roll, octopus ceviche or a cocktail that’s housed in a Japanese infusion tower originally designed for cold brew. Yeah, go with that one.

Golf Style Is Not to Be Taken Lightly
FACT #5

Golf Style Is Not to Be Taken Lightly

Here to make you look better during your backswing are three new labels (one counts Bill Murray and Justin Timberlake as fans) outfitting you in pale blue long-sleeved piqué shirts, understated bucket hats and hybrid shorts that can work on or off the golf course. You’ll have to earn the green blazer on your own.

Father John Misty May Very Well Be the Kanye West of Folk-Rock
FACT #6

Father John Misty May Very Well Be the Kanye West of Folk-Rock

Josh Tillman, better known as Father John Misty, subverts the sincerity of his genre with lyrics about groupie trysts, has live-tweeted a Tinder date and has publicly trashed the corporate pop music machine (... after collaborating with Lady Gaga and Beyoncé). So we must ask ourselves: is he a smug, self-obsessed douche, or just imitating one for kicks? To put it another way: is Father John Misty the Kanye West of folk-rock?

Ilana Dadras cannot discern between situations in which sarcasm is and is not appropriate. Her favorite things include mezcal cocktails, Big Sur and writing about herself in the third person.
