They’ve created a special long-garment hanger specifically to solve this problem. They reached out to me offering to send me a sample and I was happy to accept it because I was curious. I actually own one maxi dress (and zero evening gowns), and I put it into immediate use. The hanger consists of two parts. The main part has the hook that goes over the rod...

Indoor Ice Skating in Oakland at Oakland Ice

In downtown Oakland, where parking is abundant on weekends, the Oakland Ice Center offers public skating sessions for those who dare to try it. A while back, Heather and I both went with our own two children – kindergartners and 3-year-olds – and concluded that this activity is best for ages five and older. Unless you believe that hockey runs through their blood, of course. Photo: Ryan Currier What you need to know about skating at Oakland Ice Tickets: Pre-registration is required for two-hour sessions; space is limited. Price: $13 for 13 years and older, $12 for children 12 and under. Oakland residents can save 10% with ID. Rental: $6/skate (rentals must be preregistered with ticket admissions). Covid-19 Update: Masks...

Shift Diaries: What 4 Detroit Bartenders Make in a Night

In this installment of VinePair’s Shift Diaries series, we traveled to the Motor City — home to hard-working, hard-partying folks. During the summer months, Detroiters flock to outdoor bars to take advantage of the precious and rare sunshine. They also happily hang out at dive bars, craft cocktail joints, and breweries, no matter the season. We talked to four bartenders from different spots all over the city, from downtown’s hopping cocktail bars to the North End’s dives, about their Friday night gigs. Age: 38 Location: Dive bar Pronouns: She/her Tips: $270 Shift: I work Friday night from 4 p.m. to close, which is at 2 a.m. I’m by myself until 7 p.m., so I get decent tips from the regulars...
