skatefall

Lines and waits are as common on Saturday nights in NYC as taxis and alcohol intake. That’s where I felt you last post, standing in line for ice skating in Bryant Park. Plan A, Rockefeller Rink, was foiled due to extreme crowds. This was Plan B. My date seemed miffed by the change in plans. Or by the cold. […]

When he asked me to go ice skating at Rockefeller Center for our fourth date, I was thrilled. It’s a little known fact that should be more publicized: I adore an ice skating date. From strapping on skates to holding hands.  From daring each other to skate faster to dodging little kids. From cold, sore feet to […]

nyc-snowpocalypse midtown

Blizzard! Snowmageddon! Snowpocalypse! Winter storm Juno! Chances are you heard the east coast is getting slammed with significant snow fall. The worst of it is supposed to start tonight, but that didn’t stop people from freaking out today. I’m currently temping at a recording studio in midtown and pretty much no one came in today. When […]

This season I’m devoting every Sunday on this blog to SUN! (See previous weeks here.) What our skin lacks in Vitamin D we will make up for with our eyes! Together we will combat the winter blues, living vicariously through pictures of greener, sunnier pastures! Saturday night at a karaoke bar in the East Village, we belted our lungs […]

When I first moved to my neighborhood, my bro-bestie Walter lived across the street. Those were the days, my friends. Much beer was quaffed and even more dish was served (“dish” is a more gender neutral term for “gossip”). A typical scene was me rooting through my closet, getting ready for a date, Walter sitting in on […]

So where does a goofball like me meet all these boys?

I totally fail at cliché when it comes to meeting men. I’ve never met a man at a bar. Never been introduced by mutual friends (will one of you please meet someone perfect for me already?). That said, if you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you know I’ve met (and blogged about) plenty of […]

There are certain activities that go from barely tolerable to fun in direct correlation to my alcohol intake. Sporting events, clubbing, waiting for the start of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade- to name a few examples. The newest edition to this list? Dating that guy I met on New Year’s Eve. You were wondering how that date […]

bryant park frozen fountain christmas tree

Bryant Park during the summer is all sunshine and free events. Bryant Pant during the holidays is all winter village shops and ice skating. Bryant Park in January? No one talks about Bryant Park in January. A walk after work on Friday evening lead to the discovery: this park is even awesome the worst time of the year. I […]

The subway comes to a sudden halt in the middle of the dark tunnel. Audible groans come from the commuters packed on the train at rush hour. This unexpected stop could well be the difference between on time and tardy. For those with time card to punch in, this delay may quite literally cost them. The conductor comes […]
