Head over to the Wythe Hotel and stock up on unique reads (fabulous hostess gifts if you ask us) for you and your loved ones!
This week rings in the 13th annual Tribeca Film Festival and rumor has it this Tribeca program will be one for the books. Kicking off the event is the Nas documentary, “Time is Illmatic,” followed by a musical performance by Nas himself. From April 16th through April 27th Lower Manhattan will be buzzing about featured films like “Dior and I,” “6,” and “Ballet 422.” This is one event you won’t want to miss.
Got plans Friday night? Cancel them... because Lana Del Rey is in town! After all the buzz from her Coachella performance, we couldn't be more excited for her upcoming concert at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Chances are high that show-goers will even get to hear her brand new single “West Coast,” so drop those Friday night plans and get your tickets here.
As loyal patrons since the opening of Superba Snack Bar on Rose, we were ecstatic to hear of their newest venture, sister spot Superba Food + Bread in the heart of Venice. This bakery meets café, meets restaurant, bar and community hub is a must-try. Plus, they'll be serving breakfast, lunch, AND dinner which means you’ll basically never want to leave. Not only does the food sound delicious, but the open-air patio is even more inviting for either a cup of espresso or a glass of Pinot. Head on over and check it out for yourself!

Plus, with a variety of topics and characters, Can’t and Won’t is sure to speak to every avid reader in some shape or form. It's officially on our summer must-read list. Get your copy here.
