For Time Out New York’s first free issue (which will be distributed next Wednesday), we're bringing out the big guns. We've enlisted a crew of notable New Yorkers to lend their unique eye to the magazine. The twist? Each celeb has taken charge of a section outside their typical area of expertise.
Fashion designer Patricia Field, who designed the costumes on Sex and the City and the new sitcom Younger, took over the comedy section, where she edited a profile of comedian Ted Alexandro. Shopping & Style was commandeered by Daredevil actress Rosario Dawson; she helped put together a profile of fashion trucks. And Daniel Kessler of Interpol put together a feature on vegetable-forward restaurants for our food section. Meanwhile, famed chef Mario Batali teamed up with our music team to shine a spotlight on stoner rappers Joey Bada$$ and Heems (just in time for 4/20), and cabaret star Bridget Everett covered the city’s hottest wine bars in our brand-new drinking section.
