You might get it back in
March April NYC is expecting another 4-6 inches of snow overnight. Continue reading
I have been trying to find The Perfect Sofa Table for a long time. Years.
What a total pain in the a$$, y’all.
I had my heart set on working with RecycledBrooklyn.
And it’s here! I love it.
Kanye West: The type of guy that would unplug your phone at 99% power level and say “No one man should have all that power”

I found that very, very funny.
Kanye’s most recent release Yeezus didn’t appeal to me as much as, say, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy which I adore. But still, I emailed a few friends about buying tickets. They weren’t cheap–one of my sources had access to good seats for face value: $185. No takers. Continue reading
I’m afraid to jinx myself. It has only been once and heaven knows I have been disappointed so many times.
I resorted to ordering from Benares, which delivers to my Manhattan office, and taking that home for dinner via bus and then subway. Yeah, I know.
Could it be that there is a new, good Indian restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn?
Dare I hope?
I dare. Because the meal I had delivered from Mahal Kita via Seamless was DELICIOUS. Even better? It was 20% off because they’re new in town.
I live walking distance from this legendary Brooklyn steakhouse and have for more than two years. But I have yet to dine there.
I love a good steak. I love classic New York experiences.
Beyond that, shouldn’t this pic of Peter Luger’s bacon be compelling enough?
Once I tried. I was with my visiting mother. It was a Sunday afternoon during what I thought might be a quieter time at Peter Luger, after lunch but before dinner. No reservation.
Denied. The place was packed.
Peter Luger is cash only too. Unless one has the PL credit card. I do not sadly. At any given time, I have approximately $17.45 in my wallet.
That said, I’m determined to dine at PL. Who will join me?

It’s midnight and I am riding the L train home to Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The new day is actually my birthday, the first I’ll celebrate after my move back to NYC from Washington, DC. Everything is fresh and new.
Well, the subway isn’t, but New York is home again and I am so happy.
I have just had dinner at Kittichai with two friends. Thai food is not my favorite but I am still in my enthusiastic-about-every-damn-thing phase post-move. I am also committed to saying YES to things, like event invitations and making new friends and accepting dates from just about anyone who asks.
Apologies to Huey Lewis.
