Everywhere you turn nowadays, people are talking about cronuts, the croissant/doughnut hybrid that’s taken over the world. People would talk your ear off about them if it weren’t for the fact that they’re busy waiting in line to buy and then quickly eat a cronut and then get back in line. But at least one enterprising soul out there is taking advantage of the craze by buying, and then selling cronuts to people desperate to eat them but without the time to waste to stand on lines. Hey, why don’t you do that too? (more…)
Everyone loves 3D printing now. The president does, insane gun nuts do, hell, there like 34.5% chance that even your mom know what it is and she doesn’t even know how to turn the caps lock off on her iPhone.

Got a great business idea? Wel, get in line, this is America, land of people who think they have great business ideas.

There’s something really sad about walking past an empty restaurant, more sad than walking past an empty bar or deli. Maybe it’s the bored waiters, standing around with no orders to take and no tips to receive. Or if it’s a place with an open kitchen, the chefs standing around not making any food. Whatever it is, there’s an urge to somehow help. Except you don’t have a bottomless wallet to try all these places. But a tip landed in our inbox that you can march in to that sad, empty restaurant with: Kitchen Nightmares with Gordon Ramsay is once again on the hunt for restaurants in distress. (more…)
What do you do at work all day? The thing that you’re paid to do by your bosses? Haha, you’re reading this, so that’s obviously untrue. When you’re not reading Brokelyn, how else do you goof off?

For the life of us, we’ll never understand why we let those lousy grungers and cowboys in Washington and Colorado legalize pot before New York did. Like most social issues we’re behind on, we’re just going to blame Upstate and make idle secession threats. Because aside from creating a paradise where people finally won’t get arrested for the simple act of holding on to some weed, an alt-weekly in Denver is now looking for a pot intern. Oh sure, now everyone wants to be an intern, huh? (more…)
This news will likely be most handy to you if you’re an NYU student, those chosen few who seem to get all the best damn jobs and internships in the city while the rest of us contemplate selling our old IKEA furniture we lugged from our college apartments in Baltimore or Chicago wherever to buy dinner tomorrow night, but NYU’s annual Startup Week kicks off tonight, and there will be lots of tech-ey entrepeneurs around who will maybe give you a job. Maybe. If you ask real nice. (more…)
You know what they say: if you can’t make it in the real world, make it on reality TV. Well, we’re not sure if anyone actually says that, but it sure seems to be true. And that’s great for all you designers out there, because Project Runway is casting for their next season.
