    Besides my Metrocard, the only other thing I never ever leave home without is my trusty chihuahua* iPhone.  Any other New Yorkers out there relate? I’ve only had this life changing amazing piece of technology for about a year, and it’s insane to think how I navigated my way around the city before!  (Blackberry, you’ll always […]

    Choice Eats Delivers A Happy Belly

    Friday, April 4, 2014

    The Village Voice’s 7th annual Choice Eats tasting event was a satisfying hit!  As soon as I walked into Basketball City on South Street and noticed the thousands of people lining up at each table, I knew I shouldn’t have eaten lunch that afternoon.
