Nice way to see the States! And the drivers have such funny stories. They've been doing it for years for big rappers and big rock bands: Poison, Iron Maiden. I remember one driver turned around and yelled, "You alive back there?" It was so quiet! He's used to five hookers doing coke and people flying off their heads. We're sitting there quietly with headphones on, a bunch of geeks with laptops.

In nightlife, the next big thing isn't always the next best thing. (See: dubstep.) But "farm-to-disco" dining is a concept we fully endorse. It's gained a foothold in Austin's food scene; Boston may not be far behind. Exhibit A: Rising Sun Tavern, a new pop-up dinner series from the team behind Staff Meal, the late but lauded food truck. District Lounge is hosting Rising Sun's Asian-fusion menus, like this week's izakaya-meets-tavern "noodle house" event, on select Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. (Visit risingsuntavern.com for upcoming dates.) Best of all, you can stick around and burn newly consumed calories on District's dance floor — because farm-to-treadmill will never catch on.
