As the year's end approaches and with it thoughts of family, friends, and your impending lonely demise, take solace in all that 2008 brought New York. See you Jan 5th, bro-tard.
Culture: Since knowing is half the battle, men comforted themselves with couples therapy and took further solace in higher learning.
Food/Drink: A silver-skulled necropolis opened in the LES, and an Asgardian pleasure dome opened in Hell's Kitchen, while in an undisclosed location five defenders of the grubiverse formed a Voltron of gluttony.
Gadgets: Blue-collar artisans crafted a device that tested the limits of respectability and the communicable nature of dating.
Gear: Like nebbish bookworms after a bathroom beatdown, men kicked themselves for not dressing impeccably in luxuriant threads.
Service: After discovering a tool that let them meticulously annotate their dry spells, would-be Lotharios said "hell, I'm broke" and began a never-ending bender.
Events: Hoping to sleep with Jan-Michael Vincent, travelers went to infinity and beyond to perfect their yacht rock.
