Hall & Oates has never won a Grammy but the No. 1 selling duo of all time has won something else: hipster respect.
Putting aside those shoulder pads for a moment, Daryl Hall and John Oates looked like hand-picked opposites: The lanky blond Hall called himself the "more flamboyant" one, while the shorter dark-haired Oates — with his distinctive 'stache — embraced his role as "worker bee."

Part of the thrall of the open road? Munching through roadside diners, street carts, and five-star finds.
Yahoo! has been going On the Road not just at concerts, but also at many dining hotspots across the country. Naturally, those places have been impeccable
It is true, though, that culinary adventures in a strange place can come with its share of misadventures. You may know the best bartender at your corner dive or the dirty secret that has you avoiding the local hot hangout, but those secrets are a bit harder to scout out when you're traveling. Chowhound and Yelp can help (and the latter has even started running health inspector reviews in San Francisco and New York City).
