Maybe when you think of Pinterest you think of crazy chicks who plan their wedding before they even have a boyfriend. I used to think that, but after an extensive search around the stereotypically girly social media startup, I realized Pinterest is for more than overeager girls.

Best for: Remembering what partying in Vegas was like before EDC took over the city in 2011.
Why you need this: These days Vegas and EDM are synonymoous. As such, when EDC finally made it's way to sin city in 2011, the city became a mecca for EDM fans who began migrating en masse to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for endless bass drops. But it wasn't always like this—Vegas used to be about gambling, all-girl dance routines and strippers. Honor your history and remember how they used to party before you came along. Maybe you'll even learn a thing or two.
