Advertisers are equally charmed. "We should easily break $10 million in revenue by the end of the year," says Thrillist co-founder Adam Rich. "Growth is actually accelerating--even female readership."

His theory is that a broader "man's position" has become accepted, and guys want to embrace things that reflect more diverse interests--not just steak houses, Rich says, but also projects like the Urban Forest Map, which maps urban trees and their financial effect on water savings.

The market opportunities are only going to increase with e-commerce sites like Etsy, which allow individuals to open businesses with very little overhead. "You used to need a big company to turn the ship, but now cottage craftspeople can see something that'd be cool to have and create it. Then, you've got sites like Thrillist to draw attention to the best of them. It's very synergistic," Rich says.
