Flavorpill - New York culture guide
Flavorpill loves culture. We embrace the high-brow, low-brow, underground, mainstream, and everything in between — as long as it's good.
A city guide for those who like to go out, Flavorpill publishes a daily update of worthwhile cultural-event listings, from art exhibits and readings to concerts, plays, and festivals.
We started out in New York City in 2000 — in the kitchen of one of our founders — now we've expanded to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and London.
Every day, our editors comb through emails, websites, newspapers, and magazines in search of the must-see happenings in their cities — then they get off their computers and experience the events firsthand.

[ Tagamac ] [ Intro to tags ]
A tag is a word or short phrase that describes something. Tags are usually directly attached to the item they describe.
Tags are a particular kind of metadata (information about other information) that is unique because it is completely under the user's control. A tag may describe any attribute of the item it is attached to, allowing more flexibility than other classification systems.
Some programs refer to tags as keywords or categories. Although "keyword" and "tag" are almost always interchangeable, "category" is sometimes used to mean something different from "tag". It just depends on the program.
In Mac OS X tags are often depicted with a light blue background and a rounded blue border (similar to the addresses when you are responding to an email in Mail.app).
