For anyone who grew up in my generation (graduated high school between 1998-2006), Joey Fatone was and still is a big household name.  Being part of one of the biggest boy bands of all time, NSYNC, Joey & the group achieved international fame with their collection of amazing hits and mass hysteria throughout the world as they spent years dominating the charts and airwaves.  Since his music days, Joey has been singing a different tune with becoming one of the most in demand television personalities out there with his own shows, brands and so much more.

For the second year in a row, Manhattan Digest has put together a list simply known as Bears You Should Know.  What attributes does one need to make this list?  For one, vanity and looks have nothing to do with it.  This isn’t a calendar of sorts for men to ogle over, although each guy is incredibly handsome in their own way.  This list simply highlights an amazing group of gay men who are inspiring positive change for our community.

Nicole Kapit effortlessly navigates the narrow spaces between beautifully curated antiques at the Newel galleries on East 61st street.  She makes you feel as if you could easily live with these pieces at home just like a couch from Crate & Barrel.  She didn’t flinch when my friend sat on an 18th century Italian chair.  There are no “Do Not Sit” signs pinned to grosgrain ribbon here.

Ten years ago, Williamsburg was a place I would just hang out in. As of recently I now live there. When moving into any new neighborhood, you have to find your “go to spots”. After my visit to Little King, I believe I have found my first. Now in proper brunching fashion, I went out the night before and had a few cocktails. So that morning, my body was ready for a good meal and drink to help lighten the burden that was my hangover.

Katie Lee brings out the jealousy in me, in the best way possible. She has accomplished so much in the culinary world at such a young age, and seems to be only at the beginning of what she will be able to achieve in her amazing career.  Katie is a mainstay at both The Food Network & Cooking Channel, thanks to her super fun and colorful shows “Beach Bites with Katie Lee” and being a co-host on “The Kitchen”.  Outside of that, how did this all begin for Katie, and what is she hopeful for not only with the second season of her show “Beach Bites” but also her own future?

When it comes to gambling, there’s a universal idea that only destinations like Las Vegas hold the monopoly on casinos. The bright lights, the 24/7 partying – it all creates this picture that Vegas is the only stop on the gambling map, and yet there’s other locations to discover. Places like New York. This might surprise some of you, but this hub of culture is where a lot of hot action is happening, thanks to the considerable list of casinos that populate the surrounding areas.
