We’re listening to…

“Booty” by Jennifer Lopez ft. Iggy Azalea

A.K.A., the most recent album by Bronx-born Jennifer Lopez, was a reasonable success, thanks to popular singles like “I Luh Ya Papi” and “Booty,” featuring frequent Lopez collaborator Pitbull. Following the release of A.K.A., however, an official remix of “Booty” was released, and completely outpaced it’s predecessor, thanks the addition of the equally ample bottomed Iggy Azalea. Factor in a sultry music video featuring a gyrating Lopez and the “Iggy Factor,” and it isn’t hard to see that two booties are better than one.

Hunted: The War Against Gays in Russia

While maybe better known for popular series Game of Thrones and Girls, HBO Documentary Films will be premiering it’s latest feature, Hunted: The War Against Gays in Russia tonight. The plight of the Russian LGBT community first came under public scrutiny in the months leading up to the Sochi Olympics, but this film provides arguably the most in-depth, firsthand look at their atrocious state-sanctioned and public-supported hate crimes. While the LGBT Community in America fights for equality, in Russia, it’s a fight for survival.

Bar Bacon

The people at this cozy Hell’s Kitchen spot must have figured that combining two indulgences would be a recipe for success…and we’re inclined to agree. Bar Bacon offers a variety of craft beers and, as it’s name would imply, bacon (and other great food), surrounded by lively energy, great music, and comfortably cool atmosphere. We suggest ordering the special Beer & Bacon Flight, featuring a selection of four craft beers and eight strips of artisanal bacon (four different flavors) for $20. Did we mention bacon? BACON!

The Movies

With several of this years popular films still at the box office (The Maze Runner, The Boxtrolls, Guardians of the Galaxy), and more premiering, it’s a great time to take it easy and take in a movie. We’re especially excited to see Ben Affleck’s suspense mystery Gone Girl, and The Good Lie, starring Reese Witherspoon, based on the true events of the Lost Boys of Sudan. Don’t forget the popcorn!
