Okay, so you might have ignored the 'Super Bowl' part of 'Super Bowl Sunday.' It’s fine: We did too. But some of the tweets about the big game were definitely not to be missed, particularly the ones from Portlandia. Obviously. The digital quips of our favorite fake booksellers—Toni and Candance from the show's Women & Women First store—gave us opportunity to guffaw at almost every pass (that's what they do in football, right?) via the hashtag #FemininistBookstoreSaysWhat. From Katy Perry at half time to the...
As a refresher for those of us who have seen the movie Groundhog Day a million times but still never remember the tradition because it makes no sense, it goes like this: If Punxsutawney Phil doesn’t see his shadow when he emerges from his burrow, spring will come early, and if he does, winter will last another six weeks.

I never really got into the idea of Valentines Day. I'd like to like it, but I just...don't.  In fact, last night the boy and I had our annual V-Day-plans convo. To say the least, we came up empty handed. However, this morning my prayers for St.Valentine to f-off were answered. Search no more for restaurant reservations;Your plans are right here: With sponsorship from Panache, New York Night Train, and BUST (us, duh), Planned Parenthood will be hosting their yearly Valentine's Day concert and dance at the Music Hall...
