Sure you do. I had the distinct pleasure of spending a recent morning gallivanting about Bay Ridge with New York Live’s lovely Joelle Gargiulo. We ate all the donuts. (Okay, not all of them. There are still some left for you.) Special thanks to Mike’s and Leske’s for their generosity and delicious, delicious carbs. Check out the segment here!

As part of Time Out New York’s fiction issue, I wrote this homage to the biggest, baddest, best bookstore in the city. Go there. Go there now.

I came, I shopped, I shopped again.

I tried to give up (compulsive) shopping for a story—but here’s the thing about compulsions, you guys: They are really, really hard to give up.

See how it went for me (and for some other brave souls who tried to give up their own vices) in Time Out New York.

I interviewed Broad City!

I had the distinct pleasure of sitting down with Abbi and Ilana, and they are every bit as delightful as you think they are.

I love clothes (#understatement) but actually find Fashion Week pretty intimidating. If you do, too, this segment for PBS’ MetroFocus has got your covered. Lots of fun, FREE stuff for all of us during the most sartorially awesome time of year.

Hey, guys! Here’s me on PBS’ MetroFocus talking the insane and amazing NYC holiday lights to see during the holiday season. These are bonkers in the best way.

Sometimes my job is really, really hard. Like when I get to spend the day traipsing around the city with New York Live’s wonderful Sara Gore tasting some of the dishes that made it onto Time Out New York’s 100 Best Dishes list. (Oh wait, did I say hard? I meant amazing, easy and super delish.)
