FEATURES
Living for the Weekend
There are 52 in a year -- we counted -- so don't say you don't have time. Whether you're wandering the Parisian-style streets of Montreal, snuggling up in a bed-and-breakfast in Philadelphia's arts district, mountain biking through a sleepy village in Guatemala, or taking a foodie's holiday in Gaudí's Barcelona, these weekend trips -- collect them all -- will make you glad you tore yourself away from the city. Plus: A roundup of nearby arts festivals, sporting events, tall-ship cruises, and even romantic hotels within Manhattan.

Booker Value
BY SETH MNOOKIN
Thirty-two-year-old Cory Booker's résumé -- Stanford tight end, Yale Law School, Rhodes scholar, president of Oxford's L'Chaim society (a Baptist, but friends call him "King of the Jews") -- is golden. His political gifts verge on the Clintonian. And he's running his campaign for the Newark mayoralty with Freedom Rider fervor. But Newark's four-term incumbent, Sharpe James, isn't about to hand over the keys to the city, and he's making it a nasty old-style political brawl. One of his critiques of Booker: He's not black enough.

Austria Strikes Back
BY JENNIFER SENIOR
