A Journey Through the American Museum of Natural History

In the spirit of January I made resolutions for the New Year and revisited last year’s failures. The word failure is so dramatic, isn’t it? Well, I’m not here to get all Dear Abby on you, just to say that I reexamined the Bucket List from last summer and am proud to report that I […]

NYC’s New Year’s Eve: The Un-hyped Reality

Ah, New Year’s Eve. The most hyped-force-yourself-to-buy-a-new-outfit-and-swear-you’re having-the-best-time-of-your-life holiday of the year!  What other city better guarantees a positively epic night than New York? Despite Dick Clark and the glistening ball drop, it still seems like a big overrated jig to me. First, most people assume that Times Square is the place to be on […]

It’s Christmas Time in the City

Yes, yes, it’s that time of year. The holidays are quickly approaching (or if you’re Jewish, they’re here—Happy Hanukkah, by the way!) and the city has undergone its annual transformation into a winter wonderland, garnished with red ribbons and LED lights galore.  There really is only one way to describe it. New York at Christmas […]

If your Fantasy Football team is performing as horribly as mine this year, you may need some other ways to validate yourself in competition—with a beer in hand, of course.  Look no further than your nearest New York game bar!  I just wrote my first post for EuroCheapo featuring various game bars around town where you […]

Still needing inspiration for your Halloween costume? You may need to look no further than the 20th annual Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade.

Ground Zero Now Ground Three-Oh?

    A couple days ago I was walking by the World Trade Center site and my friend stopped in awe, exclaiming, “Holy crap-it’s not just a big ol’ hole in the ground anymore!”  True, it is not. For the past couple years whenever visitors asked if they should take time to go by Ground […]

50,000 Meatballs and a Dream: Giada’s Meatball Madness

Last week a generous soul gave me tickets to the opening event of NYC’s Wine and Food Festival: San Pellegrino’s Meatball Madness, hosted by Giada De Laurentis and presented by one of my favorite foodie blogs EaterNY.  Considering my general love of food, the Food Network and all things Italian (my middle name is Pellegrino, […]

12 Hours in NYC

Before I set off to France I checked one of my all-time favorite blogs for food and French life, Chocolate & Zucchini. If Clotilde Dusoulier isn’t in your life, she should be. I came across an intriguing Paris post she wrote entitled, 12 Hours in Paris, which answers the question: If you had only twelve […]

Summer is Ovah: Bucket List Assessment

Here we are, barreling undeniably into scarf and soup weather. Granted, I employ both of these things year-round, it is just now more culturally acceptable and encouraged as the breezes pick up and September slips away.
