  2. 3 Audiophile Speakers That Will Make Your Music Glow

    Vinyl music is back. In fact, awhile ago we created our guide to Turntable Kitchen’s Top 5 Recommended Turntables and it has proven to be a very popular post around here. Readers stop by nearly every day with questions and tips for help picking out their first turntable. Of course, as you’d expect, even the best turntable on the Continue…

  3. City Guide: Tulum, Mexico

    I’ve been to Mexico on a number of occasions over the course of my life. Most of my visits were to border cities that offered cheap booze, affordable seafood, mediocre beaches, and an overabundance of tacky (and wacky) souvenirs. Back in my college days, I frequently hopped the border to go dancing in Tijuana and, Continue…

  4. The Ultimate Food and Music Guide to San Francisco

    We’ve done a number of City Guides here on Turntable Kitchen, and the other day, as I was taking a stroll through Golden Gate Park, I realized that I’ve never actually done a City Guide for the city that I live in. The one I’ve lived in for the past 8+ years! How crazy is Continue…

  5. San Francisco’s Inner Sunset Neighborhood

    I’ve been living in the Inner Sunset neighborhood of San Francisco for nearly 10 years (what?!) and the reaction I get from people when I tell them where I live has gone from, “Where is that?” to “I love that area! I want to live there!” It’s been strange and satisfying to hear my hood Continue…

  6. City Guide: Tokyo, Kyoto, and Nara (Japan)

    Last month, Matt and I were presented with the opportunity of a lifetime to go to Japan on an ‘inspiration trip.’ We were selected to join a small group of creative influencers as part of UGG Australia‘s Creative Council. You can read more about that here and watch a little video that UGG Australia’s team Continue…

  7. City Guide: Nashville, Tennessee

    Although we just returned from a trip to Japan, my Nashville City Guide has been a long time coming, so I’m finally sharing it (don’t worry, Japan is soon to come!). Nashville has been on my ‘to-do’ list as a city to visit for quite some time. I must admit that country is probably my Continue…

  8. City Guide: Louisville, Kentucky

    A few months ago, I was flipping through Flipboard (ha!) on my iPad in bed when I came across Lonely Planet’s list of Top 10 US travel destinations. The number one place on their list? Louisville, Kentucky. I yelled out to Matt, who was brushing his teeth in the bathroom to relay my curiosity about Continue…

  9. City Guide: Mendocino, California

    One of my favorite things about living in the Bay Area is being only a few hours’ drive away from some truly magical places. Getting away for a long weekend isn’t quite as easy with a baby (though we certainly aren’t cutting travel out of our lives; we’ve just accepted that it’s a little more Continue…

  11. Single Serving: The Walkmen – Heaven

    It was 2002 when I first saw the video for “Wake Up” from the debut album by The Walkmen titled Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me Is Gone. I was watching my most recent VHS recording of the MTV2 show 120 Minutes, when on came a promo featuring a group of smartly dressed lads playing Continue…
