Brandy’s Piano Bar: Sing Along with a Fun Crowd

September 3, 2014 11:02 am

In an unlikely spot on a side street in New York’s Upper East Side, Brandy’s Piano Bar boasts a "best-kept secret" status. Head here for an evening of entertaining sing-alongs to everything from show tunes and '70s to today’s pop. Request a favorite song and you may just be invited to lead the crowd. A handful of tables fill the small space, but it’s fun to get to know the other patrons at this friendly neighborhood spot. A two drink minimum per set replaces the cover charge, but bartenders know their craft as well as the musicians; whatever you order will be well executed and strong. Live music starts at 9:30 p.m. every night of the week.

These Running Websites Can Help You Get Active

August 29, 2014 12:02 pm

From inspirational quotes to training tips, the internet provides a wide variety of ways to improve your running routine. Though you can only really run at the gym or on the trail, many runners seek inspiration on the web for the days when they just don’t feel like getting off of the couch. Here are some beneficial websites for runners of all skill levels.

Search “running quotes” on Pinterest and you’ll instantly be met with thousands of motivational quotes gathered by fellow runners. If you’re already on Pinterest, creating your own board to pin the quotes and workouts that inspire you most can be very helpful when you need that extra boost to lace up your sneakers.

If competitive running is more your speed, the running section of the Competitor website is just the thing to fuel your sportsmanlike spirit. The homepage provides the latest headlines from races around the world, as well as training tips to help you prepare for your next big race. You’ll also find tips for injury prevention, trail running, shoes, and gear and much more.

Running Times
Just as the name suggests, Running Times is like an online newspaper for running enthusiasts. The Headlines page includes news headlines about competitive running, with different sections for high school, college, and masters running. Trail and training tips will help you to get in the best shape possible, while the Trails We Love page offers helpful insight into the best trails in your area.
