I went to the Bronx Zoo on this lovely New York Saturday hoping to see some lions and other cool animal friends and maybe get an airbrush tattoo. I did not expect to see two grizzly bears fuck for approximately ten minutes (partial video below), but life can unfurl itself in exciting ways when you least expect it.
Caity: The #1 reason I don't drink at restaurants is that there is never anything on the menu I particularly want to drink. But the Tommy Bahama drink menu was designed by an alcoholic child—nothing BUT drinks I want to drink. So I pitched a special all-drinking edition of "The Best Restaurant in New York" to our boss, Gawker Editor-in-Chief Max Read. Max described this as "a great bad idea." At this point, 6:30 on Tuesday, about 3 and a half hours out from our first drink, I would describe his description as "a good description i love everyonnnnnne i love u guys seriously."
