Sex and the City “Hotspots” Tour

I am the first to admit that I have never really watched ‘Sex and the City’ and am hardly a fan at all. However, I do happen to live in Manhattan’s West Village where a lot of the shows scenes took place or at least where they were filmed. For months now, I have walked […]

Bay To Breakers

I spent the past weekend in San Francisco visiting friends and I was told there something called Bay To Breakers. It was supposed to have kind of a cult following and was something I should not miss as it kind of sums up San Francisco in a nutshell. My friends were right about that and […]

The Valley of the Sun

I spent a few days in the Phoenix area this past weekend. I have to say that I really like Phoenix. To sum it up, on the shuttle from the airport to the rental car area, the driver gets on the speaker and gives his weather forecast. He says, “It’s gonna be hot. It’s gonna […]

First Day of Spring in New York

As I exited the West 4th Street subway in Greenwich Village after work yesterday, I felt something for the first time this year. I felt like Spring had actually arrived and that the long and miserable New York Winter was finally over. Yesterday was the epitome of what makes Spring in New York great. As […]

Genos vs. Pats Philly Cheesesteaks

I spent this past weekend in Philadelphia and I decided to engage in the age old South Philly argument of which place has better cheesesteaks, Genos or Pats. I have been to Philly several times before and have in fact made runs from college in DC all the way to Philly just to have an […]

Vegas Baby!

Today is once again that day where I will be heading out to Las Vegas for the weekend. This time it’s for my friend Adam’s bachelor party and it should be a fun weekend, especially with the NCAA Tourney going on this weekend as well. I am sure there will be no sleep but hopefully […]

The Democratic Political Process?

I usually don’t write about politics and I am not going to try to push my political views upon anyone here but I am just so baffled, confused and annoyed about this years Democratic political primary process that my head is spinning and it seems to me that nobody has any clue what’s happening either. […]

Planning a Trip to the US

I get a lot of emails from people who live in Europe and other places about how they should structure their trip to the United States. Obviously, the US is a huge country with a lot to see and do and the distances between places can be vast. There is a lot of planning that […]

Ville de Montréal

Montréal is the second largest city in Canada behind Toronto and the second largest French speaking city in the western world behind Paris. Montréal is where the old world meets the modern world. It has unquestionable charm and culture, with a real sense of self and some of the best cuisine around. Montréal is also […]

In-N-Out Burger

I visit Los Angeles very often, at least 2 or 3 times a year and each time I leave to come back home to cold New York, I wonder why I don’t live there. Obviously there are many negatives, mainly the traffic, but I love the restaurants, the laid back vibe with the healthy outdoorsy […]
