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 […]

Warm December

The thing we can most often get caught up in as adults is… life, more specifically work, so I could kick myself for depriving my self of some adventure. The great thing about New York City is that she will have open arms and options as soon as you are ready to jump back in […]

Fall Foliage

I finally understand the Family Guy episode where all the residents are irritated by the New Yorkers coming up to watch the “leaves change color,” but who could resist a day of fresh cider, apple picking and the demon of the day, cider donuts? As you will see I could not, and my brother and […]

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.

Rooftop Film Club

You may or may not have noticed, but I have every intention of exploring what this city has to offer and I may have just experienced one of my favorite adventures to date. I often stumble across things to do on Social Media and I happened to notice an article on a Rooftop Film Club […]

Holiday Weekend

Okay, so I have to admit, after being a child of pop culture, I honestly thought I may see tumbleweed blow across New York City streets during the Memorial Day Weekend. Movies and TV shows would have me believe that everyone leaves for the Hamptons and those without All White party invitations would be left […]

Sunday Stroll

Since I am no exception to the busy demands of  New York and life in general, I promised myself a weekend of laying low, which I insisted would include healthy eating, working out and fresh air. On Sunday morning I took a 30 minute drive to the Brooklyn Bridge and strolled from end to end […]
