Barbecue ribs with a smoky rauchbier. A melon salad with a dark doppelbock. The folks behind Get Real Presents specialize in pairings like these, sharing the joys of craft beer and delicious, locally-sourced foods. In this spirit, its team of foodies and beer aficionados hosts festivals featuring more than 80 brews, as well as restaurant events that pair craft beer with regional foods. As unique as it sounds, they admit this isn't exactly a new idea—they take a page from other countries, such as Belgium, who actually anchor much of their cuisine around the effervescent beverage. Following this "cuisine a la biere" model, they aim to highlight all of the great things a freshly crafted brew can do to enhance an evening out on the town, such as highlighting the flavors of a complementary dish, spicing up a local chef's stew, or softening your dad to the idea of paying off all of your student loans.

Hampton Luxury Liner ferries its passengers around in a lavish motorcoach that boasts five flat-screen TVs, complimentary WiFi, and an on-bus library. The luxury buses travel to destinations ranging from the Hamptons to Atlantic City, with specific stops at wineries, resorts, and casinos. Reclining leather seats with space for laptops and maximum leg extension typify the cushy interior, and each road cruiser also comes equipped with a library and refrigerator, useful for storing steaks to distract the thousands of chasing dogs such a luxurious bus usually attracts.

The inaugural Gold Coast International Film Festival bursts onto the celluloid-slinging scene with screenings of 45 feature-length films and 20 short films, including debut movies never before seen by ocular orbits. The festival's roster of films populates a broadsheet with comedies, dramas, documentaries, and Andy Warhol’s Burger King training videos. Bolster ab muscles with laugh-a-minutes including The Best and the Brightest, which follows a yuppie couple, played by Neil Patrick Harris and Amy Sedaris, as they tread lightly through the human-infested waters of private-kindergarten enrollment. Festival-goers learn something new without purchasing an abacus or getting abducted by college professors thanks to immersing documentaries such as Fambul Tok, which chronicles the lives of Sierra Leone residents as they emerge from a brutal civil war. Short films, shown both independently and in groupings, boil life down to its most essential elements in installments that are easily consumed and long ruminated upon.

The deft dancers of New York Theatre Ballet energize young and adult audiences with The Alice-in-Wonderland Follies, which the New Yorker describes as a "witty, charming" production. A colorful cast of beloved characters from the Lewis Carroll classics, such as the Cheshire Cat, springs to life along with an ultra-kinetic score and field recordings of rabbit songs. Choreographer Keith Michael conceives the show as a vaudeville extravaganza set to a crazy quilt of American music vocabularies, from ballroom waltzes to wild ragtime ditties. John Tenniel's original illustrations inspire a stage set scattered with oversize children's toys, including a dollhouse and alphabet blocks.

A celebration of contemporary art, Select Fair inspires wonder and imagination during stops in Miami Beach and New York City. The Fair's visit to the Big Apple––scheduled to coincide with Frieze Fair––spreads before eyes a visual buffet of 44 booths exclusive to contemporary galleries and print publishers. In order to create a platform for new ideas, participating artists must also dedicate part of their booths to new media, conceptual, or progressive works. The whole scene unfolds on two levels of the historic Altman Building, a Chelsea landmark whose flexible open-floor plan can host everything from expansive art shows to indoor snowball fights.
