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 […]

Healthy Meals for Busy People: Trader Joe’s Reduced Guilt Chicken Breasts in Poblano Sauce

Tonight’s post comes from something of an experiment. As a huge fan of Trader Joe’s and especially the Trader Joe’s frozen section, my fridge is pretty much always stocked with some form of food that can be prepared in less than 8 minutes, usually via microwave.

Where to Eat, and Avoid, at Coachella Music Festival

This past weekend, I was lucky enough to be able to fly myself over to California and finally experience the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival firsthand.

Resolutions, Restaurant Week, and Rugged Maniac

I’m afraid I’ve neglected this guy for a little too long, but with the New Year comes New Year’s resolutions, and one of mine is to follow through with everything I start. That includes my new workout regimen, cleaning my room, and of course, updating this blog. Not that I totally meant to ignore this. […]

This Year’s San Gennaro Has More Than Just Fried Everything

I’ve been going to the San Gennaro Festival pretty much every year I’ve been in the city. Maybe it’s because I grew up in a town that had a sizable Italian population and an annual Italian festival, but there’s something about the always-crowded, often annoying street fair that still manages to get me to go (it […]

Brooklyn Ikea: Particle Board Furniture with a Side of Cheap Eats

In life news, after growing accustomed to the Union Square/St. Marks area of the city the past 4 years, I’ve relocated to be closer to work and moved into a new apartment in the Financial District last week. Luckily this new location also makes the always necessary, post-move-in journey to Ikea that much easier, as […]

So Much for No Gut – Frozen Artichoke Pizza will now be sold at Supermarkets

Anyone living in New York City probably has a love/hate relationship with the absolutely orgasmic pizza from Artichoke Basille’s Pizza & Brewery. Love because, let’s face it, it’s probably the most delicious thing to have after a night of partying and is always worth the line that may even stretch to Nowhere (you know what […]
