mussel tour fail
the mussel pot sat night: reviewed by such reliable sources as urban daddy and eater ny, i expected nothing less than a great addition to my mussel tour of america. WRONG. after the perfectly mixed strawberry and basil mojito served by the hot bartender, everything went disappointingly down hill. the hostess, both nasty and terrible at her job, the 75 min wait for our table past our reservation,...

a perfect saturday
3 part event saturday: brunch: max brenner’s. had an amazing BALT…bacon, avacado lettuce tomato. side of waffle fries sprinkled with coco and chili powder. dip them in melted chocolate instead of ketchup. they were incredible. two thumbs up. http://www.maxbrenner.com/ bowling: bowling at bowlmore lanes in union square. glow in the dark pins: check. pitchers of beer: check. worst...
i hate annoying people
my gripes of the week: THE SUBWAY LADY: the sumo wrestler lady, chowing down on an egg mcmuffin who insisted the entire pole was hers, as her back fat dug into my hand. you do not own the subway lady, and you certainly do not need to eat your breakfast with your mouth open. THE INGRATE: the ungrateful person who was unnecessarily nasty after i did something nice. you shall remain nameless bc i...

58 years and going strong
my grandparents have been married for 58 years today. FIFTY EIGHT. that is so incredible to me. they met before my grandfather was shipped off to korean war, and my grandma waited for him. they have been married, ever since. they are completely dependent on each other: my grandfather needs my grandmother to cook, and my grandmother depends on him for rides, as she doesn’t drive. they do...

there has been much controversy lately at work over the add where jenna painted her little boy’s toes neon pink. the media has created a frenzy, taking it way over the top, questioning transgender-ism in little boys. take a chill pill people…i think its all ridiculous. the kid is a little boy and likes to spend time with mom, doing things they both love. jon stewart mocked the media on...

the biggest loser- pet edition
Last night, let’s call him my “friend”, came over for dinner. He hasn’t been over in awhile and he claims marcuzzo( my cat) got fat-ter. Ummm yea, what’s your point? If the cat wants to eat six times a day to fill the void of any sort of father figure in his crucial adolescent years, who am I to stop him? When I moved into my new apt, with new non-cat-loving...
LES: LAND OF THE FREE, HOME OF THE JEWS.
sat night, my four best girlfriends and i went out for a joint b-day celebration. we started out at Verlaine: $5 lychee martini HH until 10pm. done and done. being a regular there, i know how super dangerous, and deceptively delicious they can be, and considering i was still sick, i tried to be a bit more conservative. epic fail. 2 hours and 4 martinis later, it was time to stumble on to the...
farm raised muscles?

je veux aller à Paris
lately, i’m really obsessed with going to paris, which is funny because i have been there 3 times already, and you would think if i spent that much on a trip, it would be to explore a place i have never been. every time i have been it has been cold and rushed, with a perfectly scheduled out itinerary. although, every time i have been, i have fallen in love just a little bit more....
