*What’s the best place to wear skinny jeans, thick-rimmed glasses and a precisely-trimmed messy beard? Sorry Williamsburg, but the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles has been named “America’s Best Hipster Neighborhood.”  (via Forbes)

*Your mama taught you to look both ways before crossing the street.  Now, just in case you are too busy texting, New York City streets are going to remind you.  (via NY Daily News)

*What apps do you need to enhance your next trip?  Travel bloggers extraordinaire Carlos Melia and Matt Long break down the best travel apps to download.  (via dot 429  & Landlopers)

*Too many options can make traveling just as confusing as too few.  In New York City, where gay and lesbian visitors are welcomed at most hotels, start your search with one of  “The 51 Gayest Hotels in NYC.”  (via ManAboutWorld)

*To ban cock rings or not to ban cock rings–that is the San Francisco question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the Castro to suffer
The studs and straps of outrageous penile adornment
Or to make legislation against the naked troubles
And by opposing end them.  (via The Huffington Post)
