Can't always bear it; can't live without it

Time Out New York has a pretty amusing 10th anniversary special issue this week that’s worth picking up even if you’re not a subscriber. There’s a whole bunch of top 10 lists themed to New York and the last 10 years. Here’s a selection from “10 things we do regularly that we didn’t ten years ago” – Swipe our MetroCard again at this turnstile. Tether ourselves to our iPods. Order from FreshDirect. Sleep with people we met while sitting at a computer. Take photos with a cell phone. Sit in the park and go online using Wi-Fi. Reminisce about how the first George Bush wasn’t so bad … Any others to add?

TONY is one of those magazines that’s not always really a cover-to-cover must-read, especially since half of it is just listings. But the moment your subscription expires, you have a free night and you wish you had a copy nearby to let you know what’s going on.

Oh, and in case you haven’t read the mag’s latest motto, it’s “telling you where to go for ten years.” Yup, they went there.
