From the July 3, 2014 edition

Justin

Timmy Howard

All that really needs said was tweeted by Belgium captain Vincent Kompany after the game: “Two words.. TIM HOWARD. #Respect. #BelUSA”

Brad

Mr. Fahrenheit & the Loverboys Festival

A kickass Queen cover band headlines, plus sets by locals I love like Cadaver Dogs, The Spruce Campbells and Barely Eagle.

Alyse

Whitewater Rafting in West Virginia

Last weekend was my third whitewater-rafting trip down the Lower New River. It's a completely different and wild ride every time. Who's ready for Gauley Season?

Lauren K.

OPI Chip Skip

There is nothing I hate more than painting my nails and then the next day they chip. With Chip Skip I can make it at least three days with no chips! #winning

Andy

“24”

This show has been far more entertaining than it has any business being.

Jesse

Doo-Dah Parade

There’s no better Fourth of July event in the city — full of fun weirdos and wild costumes making up a parade of revelry.    

Abernathy

Bass guitar players

“Shouldn’t you be loading a truck or something?”

Meghan

The Griffith Park Observatory in Los Angeles

They have a Tesla coil and Tesla toys!
