EW.com has an interesting if somewhat unhelpful to non-New Yorkers list on what to do to alleviate Gossip Girl withdrawal brought about by the overly long writer's strike:
a) Watch reruns and play Guzzle Girl, a GG-themed drinking game for New Yorkers. Sling back a shot for every location mentioned that you’ve been to/drank at/fornicated in. Double-time if it’s in your 'hood (Example: Dan: "The Sunshine Theater"; Me: Bam! Bam!).
b) Listen to Ed Westwick's indie rock band, appropriately named The Filthy Youth. Egads! Send in a picture of yourself with the self-damning phrase "I'm a Filthy Youth"; admire your picture once it's posted online with the string of other teenagers, strangely all female.
c) Go to the Palace Hotel's Gilt Restaurant and order yourself a grilled cheese with truffle oil, inspired by the show, for only $50. Get escorted out after barging into the back kitchen mumbling something about a gooey, attempted rape scene.
