Two things I learned this weekend in Cartagena. One, not everybody there has a cell phone. Two, plan-to-plan calling is much cheaper than calling somebody who has a different carrier. Thus, people operate these little stands on the street. You put your coin down, pick up the phone labeled with the name of the carrier that the person you’re calling has, and make your call. Neat.

The meatpacking district is past its risqué days, but the Raven is trying anyway. The 2,400-square-foot subterranean lounge offers mirrors dusted with words cut from faux cocaine, a skull made with condom wrappers and a quilt stitched with an expletive. Red lighting, low ceilings and waitresses clad in black dresses made of rubber further suggest a sex den.

New York’s hottest club is Raven! Can you believe this is NOT an excerpt from a Stefon sketch and is actually a real place, reviewed in the NY Times?

If simply reading about these new clubs is exhausting me, I can’t imagine what going would be like.
