Times Square and Central Park attract tourists to New York City in droves, but what were the most exciting sights back in the 1950s? Thanks to an old tourist brochure from 1953, we're exploring back in the day versus today, for NYC tourists.
Here's a quick trivia question: How does the leggy advertisement for the Latin Quarter nightclub relate to Barbara Walters? It was run by her father! We doubt that Barbara enjoys being connected back to this notorious club, especially since it embodied the seedy side of Times Square from the late 1960s through 1980s by showing soft-core pornography and being a popular fight spot.
Oh boy but back in the day, especially in 1953 when the lights of Times Square were still glamorous and not all red. Lou Walter's Latin Quarter hosted the big names alongside a little nudie chorus girl show. Think Frank Sinatra, Milton Berle and Mae West.

Lindsay Lohan was slapped with a $10,000 lawsuit for taking a girl's coat at a club home with her. 22-year-old student Masha Markova left her family-heirloom mink in a communal coat bin at the Chelsea club 1Oak on a night out in January. The coat disappeared, only to turn up on Lohan several days later in the tabloids.
Markova eventually got the coat back but is suing for damages done and looking for an apology from the star.
We at Jaunted don't condone the stealing of coats, but there's a caveat traveler: If you're going to bring a fur coat out with you, don't let it out of your sight! (But if you do, come up with a cool story for how you lost it.)

Barcelona's nightlife is notoriously hot and there is something to satisfy even the most professional partiers. But there are so many events happening simultaneously you can easily get overwhelmed and find yourself where many young travelers do: Running the Las Ramblas strip and eventually sharing pints with other foreigners at the the Old City's Travel Bar, a pub-ish backpacker den that should be avoided at all costs--unless you need to take advantage of its free WiFi.
Instead, we went in search of BCN's funkier side and sussed out two eclectic parties that kept us groovin' way too late (on a Wednesday, no less).
If you're the nightclubber type when traveling, yet loathe showing up at hot spots in foreign cities stone cold sober and haggling over cab fare, head to Prague. They've got the perfect solution: Tramix, a tram-based club. Yep, it's a standard streetcar with a full-on party happening on board, including room to dance and mobile bars.
Tramix travels around the city about once a month, picking up locals and visitors alike and transporting them to area clubs revved up and ready to party. They claim that "euphoric entertainment has no limits on board" and guest count can range from 60-150, depending on the car Tramix takes over next.
The trip's generally around two-and-a-half hours and costs about $18. Partiers can buy tickets in advance on Tramix's site. Definitely beats paying a cab driver for just an ordinary ride.
"American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest and acerbic judge Simon Cowell were caught trysting at the Wynn Las Vegas. And by trysting we mean they were partying at the hotel's nightclub Tryst.
Seacrest apparently scored time off from his nine other jobs to hang with Cowell and celebrate the two-year anniversary of the club.
We've been to Tryst quite a few times, and it's one of our favorite nightclubs in Sin City because it's rather small compared to other Vegas clubs. Plus there's a grotto outside underneath the man-made waterfall (Wynnfall?). And, gals, don't forget to ride the stripper pole in the corner.
Of course, it's Vegas so you still get a mix of bachelor/b-rette parties, stripper wannabes, meatheads and Middle America types who decide to visit a nightclub for the first time ever. If you're looking to avoid the touristy Vegas crowd, go on either Sunday or Monday nights when the locals who work on The Strip like to release their inhibitions.

Hey, those three-letter airport codes are pretty catchy. Why say you're from, for example, Providence when you can "represent for the PVD"? But the more non-airport places use them, the less snappy they become, as this weekend's opening of LAX, at the Luxor in Las Vegas, proves.
The club--which reportedly paid Britney Spears $100,000 to make an appearance on Friday night--is an offshoot of a club by the same name in Los Angeles. You know, where LAX the airport is. Now the Luxor is cashing in on the name recognition of the original--featured several times on MTV's "The Hills"--to draw crowds to its LAX.
We're just wondering why any club would want to be associated with a place where you have to take off your shoes, get searched and wear a seatbelt.
Lindsay Lohan preened around Miami Beach in multiple bikinis before and after her scheduled "hosting" gig at Privé on New Year's Eve.
The $200-a-head bash was one of the hottest tix in Miami...and yes, Fez was in the area.

Last nights almost unwatchable Taradise began innocently enough, Tara handed out invites to her Taradise Launch party, which was set to take place at VIP Room. The invites pictured an obviously airbrushed Tara beckoning recipients to attend her bash. From there things deteriorated, and fast.
As the show dragged on, it was obvious that E! finally abandoned the formula of sending Tara and her awkward movie producer to "European cultural highlights" book-ended with partying, and instead opted to remove any attempts at cultural interludes.
Shocking, we know.
Turns out, it was really a glimpse into what life would be like as a trust fund kid. People talking for hours about champagne fights (Tara even claimed the St. Tropez champagne fight was the best she had ever seen...how many has she seen?), jumping off 300 ft yachts, dining at a restaurant where models prance around in garments waiting to be purchased (you can buy the clothes not the models), and talking about nothing in an eerily sleepy tone.
The highlight of the show? We are torn between Tara's invitation to have a threesome with Anna Anisimova and her "boy" and when one of Tara's guy "friends" proclaims his love for Tara by letting her know that if he died in St. Tropez he would be the happiest man in the world, cause he would die with Tara.
The point of last nights show appeared to be trying to sneak the E! crew into Les Caves du Roy, something that had not been done in the clubs thirty year history. Thankfully, Tara was able to accomplish this feat, and she celebrates by pole dancing and explaining to viewers what they are seeing:
Basically, inside is a circle with tables, then there is an upstairs, but that is like where the regular people go.
We are going to go throw up now.

If you could say one word about me it's love...I'm in love with love.
So says a sober Tara Reid.
Last night Tara traveled to the Baths of Aphrodite, where she imparted her first bit of true knowledge on viewers.
You see, Hugh Hefner modeled his Playboy mansion grotto after the baths of Aphrodite according to Mz. Reid, and she would know about these things.
We were then treated to the following scenes:
· Tara searching her brain for the term "Guinea pig" as she riffs about her love for Greek Mythology.
· Tara figuring out that "eternal beauty" is not located on the corner of Nip and Tuck in LA, but instead achieved only when one swims three laps around an ancient rock off the coast of Cyprus.
The rest of the show was Tara being Tara. Drinking, eating, and clubbing in Ayia Napa. Man she is a monster when she gets in the zone. Ok, ok, she *still* dances like a three legged cat on hot coals, but hey, remember, Jordan didn't win defensive player of the year until he was well into his career.
