Valley Social Magazine

If you hang out at someplace trendy, there will inevitably be a pile of Valley Social magazines wedged somewhere near the entrance. (I have yet to see a lit rack in a night club.) If you don't visit anywhere that is trendy, or if the trendsetters have wiped out your hot spot's pile, you can read it online. It's not nearly as glossy, but it's a little easier to handle than the massive mag. There are a few local features, interviews with famous faces (some even have "regional" connections - e.g. Chelsea Handler is from Livingston, NJ), people posed in front of a step-and-repeat banner, and an aspirational fashion spread. Also, really beautiful photography. While you're online, sign up for their email updates. Since the magazine's deadlines are so far in advance (they're just getting around to putting a female golfer from the US Women's Open on the cover), they can't promote their upcoming events in the printed version. For instance: Tomorrow (October 22), Knopf Automotive will celebrate the launch of "the highly anticipated 4-door sports sedan, the Porsche Panamera. Enjoy live entertainment, Octoberfest (sic) inspired hors d'ouerves, and German beer & wine..." Head out to Yianni’s Taverna for a Muscular Dystrophy fundraiser on November 03, which is mysteriously promoted as a Grand Opening.
