The New York Times is all agog that there is actually a launch party for a magazine in these bad economic times. In this case, the new periodical is a pretty cool-looking "experiential" travel magazine called Afar. The Times spends way too much time telling us what food was at the party, and not nearly enough about the magazine, its prospects, or its team.
Anywho. The magazine does sound very interesting. I just wish I could find it at a local bookstore or magazine shop. So far, nada.
