Pappas: Listen up, you quarterback punk. There’s something I need you to check out down in Soho, and we just made a video about it.
Johnny Utah: Those Ex-Presidents got another bank?
Pappas: No, you snot-nose kid. We’ve been getting hepped up on caffeine at this place called Saturdays for a few weeks now. And the three easy-on-the-eyes surfers behind it just opened a retail section featuring sick boards, guys’ apparel, and wave rider essentials.
Utah: Want me to pose as a surfer and infiltrate?
Pappas: Genius, you idiot. Mostly I want you to hang around their 500-square-foot outdoor patio and relax, mingle, and drink coffee with ’em. If we’re lucky, they’ll invite you to the Rockaways, Montauk, or Long Beach. It’s good this time of year.
Utah: Doh. I love being in the FBI.
Pappas: Just remember, you’ll know ’em by their tan lines.

Many moons ago, I moved to SF with just two suitcases. I had zero housing prospects, I didn’t know a soul, and the iconic bridge seemed to be permanently immersed in fog.
Then the skies opened up: I found a Lower Haight apartment, 415 numbers slowly filled my phone, and I was hired to write about everything from comic book tarot card readers to seaweed foragers.
In today’s video, I introduce you to three Bay Area places I visit almost weekly: a veritable Sesame Street for artisans, a glamorous Pacific Heights flower shop, and a wine bar where you’ll want to become a regular.
I hope the video inspires you to venture outside your hood and try something new.
No bravery required.

When I first moved to New York from Virginia eight years ago, I thought Times Square was the cool place to live and Brother Jimmy’s BBQ was where I was going to find a husband.
Many (many) apartments and PBRs later, I like to think I’m a bit more discerning. For one, I have a job that exposes me to new things every day. For two, the frat party moved to Tinder.
In today’s video, I introduce you to three of my favorite Big Apple establishments: the best ramen in the city (I will gladly debate you on this if you think it’s Ippudo NY), Brooklyn-made dog treats for my little guy, and a Chelsea-based workout that isn’t completely horrific.
I hope the video encourages you to try my picks if you haven’t already. You might even see me there.
Hopefully I won’t be wearing my “going out” camisole.
Stay tuned for our San Fran, Los Angeles, and Chicago editors’ videos of local favorites, coming soon.
Technology has given us, among other things, the ability to know everything about the people we want to date before we even meet them. (He took shots on a trip to Cancun in 2006 with that girl?!)
So it’s no shocker that it complicates the relationships that ensue. In today’s Ask the Office Guy video, we enlisted Yahoo’s Primetime in No Time host and former Road Rules contestant Theo Von to break down a few digi issues.
From an NYC boyfriend who checks his Instagram compulsively to a guy in Chicago who wants to exchange email passwords, tricky situations are Von’s specialty.
We guarantee you’ll do an Internet search for him afterward.
To see Von on a regular basis (almost like you’re going steady), go to tv.yahoo.com. Follow Von on Twitter at @theovon. Got a question for the next Office Guy? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whether we’ve recently been dumped, had a long day at work, or are just in a crappy mood, we all need an emergency empowerment jam.
The givens: “Single Ladies,” by Bey; “Girl on Fire,” by Alicia; and now — tuning into the indie station — “Renaissance Girls,” by Oh Land.
Get familiar with the song in today’s video. The Denmark-born, Brooklyn-based musician, whose real name is Nanna Øland Fabricius, performed the soon-to-be hit on our back couches with only her pipes and a toy piano.
If you like what you hear (you will), get her new album, Wish Bone (out September 24), and hit up her concerts tonight or next Tuesday. Why?
Because you’re a rock star.
See Oh Land tonight at Music Hall of Williamsburg, 66 North 6th Street, between Kent and Wythe Avenues, Williamsburg (musichallofwilliamsburg.com); doors, 8 p.m.; tickets ($20) at ticketmaster.com; and Tuesday at Gramercy Theatre, 127 East 23rd Street, between Park and Lexington Avenues (212-614-6932 or thegramercytheatre.com); doors, 7 p.m.; tickets ($20) at livenation.com. Download Wish Bone at itunes.com, $10. To get to know Oh Land, follow her on Facebook and Twitter.

You know when you find out a leading man is barely old enough to vote and then feel weird/gross that you fancied someone so young? The good news is that actor Miles Teller is 26.
Prepare for him to get even handsomer when you watch DailyCandy correspondent SuChin Pak’s interview, in which she finds out his thoughts on sex scenes, his hidden talents, and how often he visits f*ckyeahmilesteller.tumblr.com.
Want more? Watch our interview with his The Spectacular Now co-star, Shailene Woodley. To buy tickets to the movie (out August 2), go to fandango.com. Background art provided by upriseart.com.
We all googled her following The Descendants three years ago (yes, she really was Marissa Cooper’s little sister in The O.C. for a season). These days, after scoring roles in The Spectacular Now and Divergent, Shailene Woodley needs no introduction.
DC correspondent SuChin Pak sat down with the 21-year-old starlet for today’s 5 Questions to get the scoop on her ideal warm-weather rendezvous, what her childhood was like, and her favorite inspirational quote.

We’ve all been there: A co-worker has rank breath, a sibling won’t move out, an awesome boyfriend dresses like a tool, and a best friend dates someone terrible.
What’s the best way to handle all of the above? In this video, SuChin Pak finds out what actress Greta Gerwig would do.
Find showtimes for her latest movie, Frances Ha, at fandango.com. For more Greta Gerwig, check out our 5 Questions interview.
She’s got embarrassing songs on her iPod. She dated a guy who wore cowboy boots. Her favorite Kardashian is our favorite Kardashian.
Actress Greta Gerwig is BFF material. For proof, watch our videos today: First, we’ve got a 5 Questions interview with our correspondent SuChin Pak (above). Then, in a segment we’re calling Hypothetical Situations, we find out what Greta would do in common pickles (co-worker with bad breath, sibling who won’t move out, etc.).
Further evidence Greta is wonderful can be found throughout the new movie she co-wrote and stars in, Frances Ha. The film, out now, is a realistic take on friendship.
We hope to inspire the next one.
Find showtimes for Frances Ha at fandango.com. For more 5 Questions, check out SuChin’s interviews with model Coco Rocha, nutritionist Kimberly Snyder, and Veep actress Anna Chlumsky.
It’s normal to get nervous in the presence of greatness. But when Judith Hill came to our offices and performed on our back couch, we could barely form words.
In this video, she sings “Desperation,” which she wrote for Twenty Feet from Stardom (a film about the lives of backup singers, including hers, now playing). As you’ll see, her voice (which you might recognize from The Voice) blew us away.

Join chief correspondent SuChin Pak and style makers such as Alison Pincus of One Kings Lane, Christian Leone of Vaunte, and NBC’s 1st Look’s Ali Fedotowsky for a tour of the new features that make DailyCandy sweeter than ever.
We think you’ll love ’em.

This week’s picks are available at samorenyc.com, alderandcoshop.com, and dailycandy.com (we’ll show you how to make the DIY face scrub).
Most people reserve head-to-toe leopard print (socks included) for Halloween.
Lina Plioplyte is an exception.
When the Lithuania-born filmmaker dresses in full-body spots, she gets photographed by The Sartorialist.
In today’s video, we head to the street style superstar’s Brooklyn neighborhood to get the lowdown on her three favorite outfits — and attempt to uncover how she makes her Clarissa Explains It All-meets-Iris Apfel look work.
We’ve watched Plioplyte turn heads while behind the camera at multiple DailyCandy videos in the past, so when a group of high school boys asked for her digits during this shoot, we were hardly fazed.
She’s the cat’s meow.
To see Plioplyte’s work, go to teenagepeanut.com. Want more street style? Cast your vote in our contest to find the most stylish city in the country.
Wedding season is in full force (we’re sure your wallet is aware). In today’s video, SuChin has a dress, hair accessory, and nail polish that you can wear to all of them.

Travel the world. Photograph well-heeled, beautiful people. Chronicle adventures. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it.
That someone is Yvan Rodic, the brains behind go-to street style blog Face Hunter. In this 5 Questions with SuChin Pak video, we go behind the lens, learning everything from how Rodic chooses his subjects to his opinion on the most stylish city in the world (you’ll be surprised).
Rodic also fills us in on his latest book, Travels with Face Hunter, a picture diary of a year in his fabulous, jet-setting life.
He really took one for the team.
Travels with Face Hunter is available at amazon.com, $17. To read his blog, go to facehunter.blogspot.com. Want to keep watching? Check out our interviews with actress Anna Chlumsky, nutritionist Kimberly Snyder, singer/songwriter Emeli Sandé, and supermodel Coco Rocha.
In the spirit of full disclosure, we have a bit of a thing for Lisa Loeb. “Stay” is our go-to karaoke jam. We were frame junkies long before Warby Parker. And we embrace (and at the same time completely reject) our place in Generation X.
Which is why we geeked out when she visited our NYC office to perform from her latest kids’ book and album, Lisa Loeb’s Songs for Movin’ & Shakin’.
Since she rocked our world in 1994, Loeb has released eight albums, starred in two reality shows, launched an eyewear collection, founded a nonprofit, and become a mom.
Her latest fam-friendly effort combines tunes, activities, and a ten-song CD that are guaranteed to get you and your kiddies off the couch and dancing your pants off.

What’s the new little black dress? The little black bag that goes with everything. In this video, SuChin shares three that you’ll want to buy right now.
This week’s picks are available at cloudcloudny.com, gargyle.com, and nastygal.com. (The Nasty Gal bag is restocking in July; sadly, it was so popular it sold out right before this video went up.) For more of SuChin’s obsessions, check out her favorite videos on our YouTube channel.
Here’s a (laughable) piece of trivia: One of the most recognizable kid actors of our generation later became a fact checker at Zagat.
Actress Anna Chlumsky originally invaded our hearts playing Vada Sultenfuss in My Girl. These days she works alongside a motley White House crew as Veep’s Amy Brookheimer.
In today’s 5 Questions with SuChin Pak, Chlumsky fills in the gap between now and then, from what it was like to be a kid actor to who makes her laugh the hardest on the Veep set. She even tells us what it was like to prom-hop in high school.
You’ll probably notice she’s got a bun in the oven (a little lady due this summer).
A.k.a. her girl.
To watch full episodes of Veep, go to hbo.com. For more interviews, check out our videos with model Coco Rocha, actress/writer Mindy Kaling, nutritionist Kimberly Snyder, and singer Emeli Sandé.
