Faicco’s Pork Store is closed on Mondays. How do I know this? Well, I went there today for lunch and was greeted with a closed sign. Hello Monday! I didn’t have much time to go elsewhere, so I went two stores down to The Lobster Place for a Lobster Roll ($16.95), lobster salad with celery, mayonnaise, lemon-pepper seasoning, and scallions on a toasted split-top bun. Coleslaw and potato chips come on the side. MORE »
I do a lot of crazy things, and waking up at seven in the morning on a Saturday to go shopping is probably one of them. Crazier was convincing ten friends to come with me. Luckily, my friends are just as crazy as I am. This past Saturday was the private HomeGoods shopping event at the new store on the Upper West Side, and my guests and I had to get there early because the event was being held before the store opened. The nice people at BlogHer and Homegoods, however, provided a nice breakfast spread from WholeFoods, and after a coffee and a bagel, we were ready to shop. Full disclosure: my friends received $50 gift cards, and I received a $100 gift card to spend at the event.
David and I had pricier meals in Athens, but our favorites were the meat-stuffed, white sauce-laden ones quickly scarfed down in Monastiraki Square. David was a fan of the souvlaki at O Thanasis and I was blown away by the gyro at Sabbas. MORE »
I realized I’ve been eating Chinese food every day this week for lunch so I decided I needed a break and went to K-Town for some Korean food. Somehow things didn’t work exactly as planned since I ended up eating Korean-Chinese at Jin Jja Roo. Oh well, sometimes you have to listen to your body when it’s craving something. MORE »
David should get an award for waking up at seven in the morning on a Saturday to go with me to a HomeGoods shopping event, and then going for tea and scones at Alice’s Tea Cup. Not all men are that secure in their manhood. In any case, if you find yourself at Alice’s Tea Cup in the next few months, with or without your significant other, their strawberry and peach scone ($10 for 2 scones and a pot of tea) is perfect for the warmer weather. Light, crumbly, and studded with fruit, it’ll satisfy your scone craving but won’t sit in your stomach like a paperweight. It’s tasty enough to eat alone, but as most scones are, it’s better with clotted cream and preserves. MORE »
