Neighborhood guide: Philadelphia

Thanks to our homies at WeJetSet, every minute I’ve spent in the city of brotherly love has been incredible. These guys run the town with an assortment of creative ventures and community projects, so it was only natural to ask Rashid to share his favorite places to eat, drink, read and get together with friends on and off the beaten path of Philadelphia.

The future of air travel

The future of air travel is different. No more little porthole windows, uncomfortable seats, and shitty peanuts. No, the future of air travel has panoramic views, lush couches, and champagne. Ok, maybe not the champagne. But customers of the jet business are looking towards creating more comfortable experiences, opulent ones augmented by innovative interior work. While us plebs might not be seeing this anytime soon, it just goes to show that design will change the way we live and work. Some photos below, courtesy of Dezeen.



My neighborhood guide to Los Angeles (mostly) east of the 101


Urban sprawl is like the MSG that seasons Los Angeles: it’s so bad, yet oh-so-good. What I mean is because LA is so geographically expansive, there’s an ever refreshed list of places to see, taste, and explore across all corners of neighborhoods falling within the designation of “LA County”. I live in the tiny corner of Silver Lake, but as a born and bred Angeleno who has lived in various sections of the county, I think much of what makes my hometown inspiring for locals and visitors alike are the neighborhoods east of what is typically highlighted as Los Angeles. Here is a very whittled down list of some of my favorite spots mapped out using Jauntful, viewable and downloadable as a print-out to guide you on your next LA adventure.

My neighborhood guide to San Diego

Perfect weather, amazing tacos, terrible sports teams and home to both Top Gun and Anchorman. It’s hard not to love San Diego. I spent 12 incredible years in America’s Finest City and jump on every chance I get to head back west. In honor of Holiday Matinee’s 15-year anniversary and San Diego being our birthplace, here’s 15 sure as shit favorite spots not-to-miss, available via web or a pdf to print out.

Retiree chic shuffleboard goodness in the heart of Brooklyn

With ten shuffleboard courts, Floridian cocktails, live music & a rotating cast of food trucks, I’m thrilled to be an investor in The Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club. Two years in the making, doors are officially open and league nights are in full swing (watch out for The Flamingo Kids!). The 17,000 square-foot Palm Beach themed (think geriatric) oasis in Gowanus was conceived by the dynamic duo of Ashley Albert and Jonathan Schnapp. The space is truly magical and even if you’re non-committal on the league, there’s plenty of booze for cheerleaders and lane rentals are available throughout the week and weekend. So, come take a load off and prepare for your golden years.
