For just about everybody, adolescence means having to confront a number of choices and life decisions, but rarely any as monumental as the one facing 15 year-old Alex (Ines Efrón,) who was born an intersex child. As Alex begins to explore her sexuality, her mother invites friends from Buenos Aires to come for a visit at their house on the gorgeous Uruguayan shore, along with their 16-year-old son Álvaro (Martin Piroyanski.) Alex is immediately attracted to the young man, which adds yet another level of complexity to her personal search for identity, and forces both families to face their worst fears.
Enjoy its beaches, explore its jungle or discover the magnificence of its pre-Colombian culture. LAN also offers flights to Cusco, where you'll be moments away from the ruins of Machu Picchu, Patrimony of Humanity, Modern Wonder and pride of Peru.
Fly to Peru from NY, LA, or Miami from $399 RT
Raise The Roof
Your Next Outdoor Drinking Spot
The hunt is on.
Your yearly quest for a sun-touched, booze-friendly, patio/roof/esplanade/dock/sidewalk has begun. Consider this a head start: Elizabeth opens tomorrow in the heart of Nolita with a brand new patio.
Formerly Rialto, Elizabeth is a breezy neighborhood bar that you might find yourself drifting into on a regular basis this summer. The outdoor space in question, dubbed "The Garden," will have a small fountain in the center, its own service bar (this is key) and enough greenery to convince your date you've whisked her a bit farther than Elizabeth Street. Not to mention that it's rain-or-shine thanks to the retractable roof.
The two front rooms—The Salon and The Card Room—will prove useful on more indoor-oriented nights. The Salon, decked with gray marble tables and nickel-plated skull lamps, is a healthy mix of Milan and Bowery. The Card Room, on the other hand, is swathed from floor to ceiling in green felt and topped off with silk house-of-cards chandeliers. (No, there isn't a regular poker game here—as far as you know.)
All the rooms and the patio deliver the same food—small plates like Watermelon Salad with Feta, Olives, and Mache meant to support an aggressive drink list

Brazilian jeweler H.Stern—whose dazzling accoutrements have long been favored by Hollywood starlets for red-carpet events—is performing a precious pas de deux with Grupo Corpo, Brazil's premier contemporary ballet company. Striving to create subtle and unusual forms that embody Grupo Corpo's kinetic esprit, H.Stern's team of designers developed 63 pieces catalogued in ten lines, with each line named after one of the dance company's signature performances. According to Roberto Stern, president and creative director of H.Stern, the partnership is based on a celebration of shared identities. "Grupo Corpo and H.Stern invest in an identity without flags or exoticism. We both explore our ginga , our intuitive and creative spirit," he says...
