MIAMI (AP) — Rob Gronkowski will be in Miami for the Super Bowl. The former Patriots tight end won’t be preparing for kickoff with Tom Brady and the rest of his old New England teammates. Instead, the man who retired from the Patriots and the NFL in March will be hosting his first Super Bowl party. And he’s doing it Gronk style. The three-time Super Bowl champ is hosting the “GRONK BEACH” festival on Saturday, February 1st, on Miami Beach in an event featuring Gronkowski’s favorites and combining a party with a music festival along with food and drinks. Gronkowski says it’s because nobody really knows Super Bowl weekend like he does. “I may not be playing the game this year, but I will still be going to Miami and I’m going to be debuting my very own music festival and its Gronk Beach,” Gronkowski said. “I mean, you can’t ask for any other situation that better than that.

Which brings us to our weekend question: What's a game that handles politics well? Here are some of our … [Read more...] about What’s a game that handles politics well?
I’m writing this story somewhat under duress, since we’ve just spent the last 20 minutes in the Ars Slack debating the wrongness of Polygon’s rank of the “most bangable aliens in Mass Effect." That list posits (spoiler alert) that the drell are the most sexually desirable race in the Mass Effect universe, which is so wrong as to be a literal offense to God. Everyone knows that the only correct choice for making the Rigellian laborbeast with two backs in Mass Effect is a turian—specifically, one special top-shelf turian named Garrus “Archangel” Vakarian—and the only reason you can’t bang Garrus as a dude Shepard is because the resulting bromance-romance would shake the pillars of heaven, and then the game would be over because what kind of finale could top that? Further ReadingThe simple lesson I learned from 369 hours of Mass Effect After I’d typed all that out, there was a momentary digital silence in the channel.

'Apartment blocks shaped like Prada skirts ... a shimmering multi-storey hotel that mimics a giant champagne bottle ... a giant Space Invader-inspired museum of digital media ... a hotel shaped like [the game] Kerplunk ... a toaster-shaped theatre and restaurants built on piers overlooking a dock filled with Dragon boaters, jet skiers and wakeboarders ... it can only be a masterplan from Alsop Architects." This week Tees Valley Regeneration unveiled its £500m plan for the redevelopment of 250 acres of run-down Middlesbrough into "one of the most exciting landscapes in the UK". "Our aim is to change the narrative of the Tees Valley," said Tees Valley Regeneration's 34-year-old chief executive, Joe Docherty, last week. His architect, William Allen Alsop RA OBE, is a big, bear-like and highly voluble 56-year-old, born in Northamptonshire, trained at the Pop-influenced Architectural Association school in London and, ever since, one of the most colourful and narrative-changing members … [Read more...] about The Ali G of urban planning
