Things We Love: Alive staff picks

From the July 3, 2014 edition


Timmy Howard

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


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.


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



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


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.    


Bass guitar players

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


The Griffith Park Observatory in Los Angeles

They have a Tesla coil and Tesla toys!
