New York City’s best bartenders don’t have a lot of time off. But when they do get a chance to go out, they know the best bars, the best places to eat, and all the late-night spots. In VinePair’s Night Out series, we speak with some of the top bartenders in the city to learn what they do when they aren’t hard at work. Consider this your guide to the perfect night out.

It’s been just over a year since Felix Salazar helped open Pocion in Upper Manhattan’s Washington Heights neighborhood. With Salazar’s help, the vegan cocktail bar has elevated the drinks scene in an area better known for places like Malecon, a superlative Dominican rotisserie spot, than dimly lit mixology dens.

Me Too | Manhattan Times

By Andrea Arroyo

I was moved to create the image Me Too as I was inspired by the hundreds of thousands of women around the country uniting to show how prevalent sexual violence is.

Last week, Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual abuse by many women and it was “big news.” He was fired by the Board of Directors of his company and later expelled from the Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Academy, which stated, “The era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over.”

There are now police investigations into potential criminal conduct.

In the past few days, social media was flooded with messages after actress Alyssa Milano wrote on Twitter, “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted, write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.”

Thousands quickly responded.

The “MeToo” movement was actually created in the mid 2000’s by Tarana Burke, an anti-sexual violence advocate, but this week it exploded into the public realm, with almost half a million posts by women sharing their painful stories of abuse or simply writing “MeToo” as their status on social media.

Yes, me too.

The Fix: Ron Renaissance – Let’s Run Away

A Washington Heights native Ron Renaissance performed in over 30 countries before the age of 25. He is an artist whose work transcends multiple musical genres. If he’s not singing, producing, composing, or playing his trombone you can bet your money he’s tearing up the dance floor.

“Let’s Run Away” is the first single of his debut solo album Renaissance Repertoire Vol. 1 which is due to be released later this year. The video for the single was filmed entirely in Havana, Cuba and was produced and directed by Ron. Even though he’s performed in hundreds of venues all around the world as an artist one of his main influences is Latin music and dance, to be able to go to the island where a lot of the rhythms that he loves came from was a life-changing experience.

He hopes everyone enjoys watching the video and listening to the song as much as he enjoyed making both. To download the song please visit RonRenaissance.com.
