Offbeat Adventures in San Francisco

Presented by New Belgium Brewing

San Francisco feels like a city built specifically for oddballs after offbeat adventures. Starting with the Gold Rush waaaay back in 1849 through the counterculture and hippie movement of the ’60s, to the current tech-sector mass migration, SF has proved to be a hotspot for gung-ho weirdos. What follows is our list of suggestions for modern-day urban explorers with a taste for the left-of-center. They all serve as fantastic support for New Belgium’s wacky Tour de Fat, an annual celebration of “bikes, beer & bemusement,” that lands Saturday, September 13th at Golden Gate Park with headliner Reggie Watts and thousands of local cycling enthusiasts. … Read More

Winners in Austin and New York were sent to a private supper club featuring rising-star chefs, care of Dinner Lab. Adventurous eaters were treated to courses inspired by the Louisiana swampland (alligator, anyone?) and the always popular, “breakfast for dinner.” In Atlanta and Chicago, routines were interrupted with secret concerts curated by Sofar Sounds. Sofar Sounds champions emerging artists, sending them to intimate pop-up shows in stunning living rooms (yes, living rooms) and other surprising spots around the world. Check out shots from some of these recent interruptions, and remember to pick up the phone once you’ve entered at RoutineInterruptions.com. If you don’t go, you’ll never know…   … Read More

Offbeat Adventures in Fort Collins, Colorado

Presented by New Belgium Brewing

It’s hard to go wrong in Fort Collins, Colorado, repeatedly ranked as one of the best towns in America and known as heaven-on-earth for lovers of beer, bikes, bands, and boats — but it can be tough to narrow down the choices on your offbeat adventure to-do list. Named for an old military camp, the charming city marches to the beat of its own quirky drum and is in the midst of celebrating its 150th birthday year. With New Belgium’s Tour de Fat getting ready to make its way home to where the infamous brewery was born in 1991 — ultimately launching the epic, craft-beer boom that now defines the city — you can count on the fiercely proud and eccentric locals going out of their way to ensure that this is the fattest stop on the tour. Hip and adventurous without trying, once you get a taste of FoCo flavor you won’t want to leave. … Read More

Trailer: Bravo’s ‘The Singles Project’ Is Reality TV in Real Time

Presented by Bravo

Bravo’s reality slate has long been a leader in the genre. But they’re upping the ante with The Singles Project, premiering Tuesday, August 12, at 10/9 central. The show is shot on a seriously accelerated (especially for reality programming) schedule, meaning that the six men and women looking for love are going from date night to prime time within a day or two. What this means for viewers: your reactions to their dates and recommendations for the singles on social media will have a legitimate impact. As the trailer says, it’s up to you to “help them find the one” in New York City. An interesting experiment to say the least! … Read More
