But when I’m in the mood for that classic, […]

NY Drinks NY Grand Tasting was a Wine Lover’s Paradise

In case it hasn’t been clear yet, let the record stand: I LOVE wine. Love it. It pairs amazingly with my favorite indulgence, cheese, while also providing surprising and complex flavors that a Diet Coke would just never be able to impart. As such, if there’s a wine tasting going on at a reasonable price, […]

Why the Village Voice’s Choice Eats is worth breaking my diet

First off, disclaimer: Anyone who reads my blog obviously knows I’m never actually on a “diet” of the conventional sort. Rather, I try to balance eating healthy and working out with eating like a total pig, trying to only eat like a total pig when the food is so good, it makes those calories worth […]

While there’s many different ways to accomplish this, from enjoying an […]

My new favorite sandwich: the Pastrami on Rye from Katz’s Deli (And yes, it’s SO worth the calories)

I’m somewhat ashamed to admit it took me about 6 years of living in New York before I finally tried the famous Pastrami on Rye from Katz’s Delicatessen, a place made even more famous thanks to a fake orgasm by Meg Ryan. It’s not that I never meant to. I’m pretty sure I had an […]

My (biased) account of why the Great GoogaMooga truly was “Great”

I had an absolutely amazing time this past weekend. I spent my entire Saturday dancing up a storm at Electric Daisy Carnival at Metlife Stadium (I literally lost 4 pounds in a day), which was perfect preparation for the fatfest that was the Great GoogaMooga on Sunday. For everyone who’s all like “Googa what?,” first things […]

Hester Street Fair is a Treasure Trove of Good Eats, Treats, and well, Treasures

It’s officially spring in New York City, which means one thing: outdoor eating and drinking! Yes, it’s that wonderful time of year when your favorite beer gardens become lively, that sunken-ship-turned-bar-and-grill on the Hudson has regular hours, and most importantly food-wise, all of the outdoor markets reopen. With choices like Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg in Williamsburg […]
