I think it’s safe to say that most were stunned when Facebook bought the two-year-old photo app Instagram for a cool billion dollars. Now it’s time for it to be branded into our pop culture consciousness beginning with Instagram NYC, which brings some of the most talented Instagram photographers out from behind their iPhones and into the spotlight in one of Manhattan’s first ever Instagram photo exhibitions.. If you’ve got a craving for barbeque, check out Brother Jimmy’s Bait Shack as the ribs, chicken, beef, and pork are all smothered in some amazing BBQ sauce. BB&R, which stands for Blonde, Brunette, and a Redhead is the brainchild of three best friends. What they’ve created is something between a neighborhood bar and a lounge with leather seats in the front and a pool table, photo booth, and video games in the back. Looking more like it came out of Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Dylan’s Candy Bar is a colorful place to get lollipops, licorice, and all things sugary. Don’t go crazy though, or your sweet tooth might melt here!
