Champagne Wishes

In my opinion, New Year’s Eve is probably the most overrated holiday, but I did manage to make this the best New Year’s Eve celebration ever, with a vintage bottle of Champagne and two friends I would keep hostage if they didn’t have bills to pay. We ate, we drank, we laughed and shared the […]

More Brooklyn, More Art

With the rotation of eye catching and intriguing exhibits at Brooklyn Museum, there is always a reason to go back, and often. This time Gylan and I were on the hunt for black lights and sneakers and was pleasantly surprised at what followed. We started the day with brunch at Soco in Brooklyn. I thought […]

Slowly, but surely I am turning into my mother or just possibly getting reaffirmation that I am a product of her womb. I would best describe her either as Google or CNN since she is full of information and always has breaking news. She either cuts out articles for my brother and I, emails YouTube […]

Brooklyn Heels

I only had one agenda for my Sunday and it was Brooklyn. I owed my brother a Birthday feast and the Buffalo Bills were not playing for the week so no appearance on a Manhattan stool with a beer in hand this week for me. I only wanted exploration and I found it in the […]

Dumbo Arts Festival

Your Saturday in New York City has the potential to be anything you want it to be, whether by choice or by chance. A whim to stroll in Brooklyn Bridge can turn into a visual explosion of art. The Dumbo Arts Festival, Dumbo standing for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, was a three day […]

New York Water Taxi

I wish I could say that I didn’t want to pinch myself everyday, but the truth is I still wonder how I got here. I still wonder how the universe came together and put everything in its place to make the perfect circumstance for me to move to a city that has always been on […]
