If you saw the mention of my underground supper club Midnight Brunch in Time Out New York this week, you may be looking for a way to request an invitation to the events. The event announcement for our NYC event on June 23 goes out tomorrow (Thurs., May 31). You can read it here, and add yourself to the invite request list.

We’re so pleased to be named in The Best Brunch in NYC 2012 feature. Hope you can join us this summer!

Four Years in New York City

Four years ago today, I’d just finished selling most of my stuff, quitting my job and saying goodbye to my best friends and goodbye to one of my bestest friend’s brand new firstborn child. I had no job lined up here, about $1,000 in my bank account and had only one friend I knew in this big, badass city.

Four years later, I have dear friends here and experiences that I’m lucky to be able to cherish every day. I have an awesome job, I’m getting ready to start my own business on top of that and I’m happy to say that I can usually get where I intend to go without getting lost first. I couldn’t convince my bestest friend to move here, but she is now just weeks away from having her second baby. Everything comes full circle.

I’ve had SUCH a good time eating and drinking and writing for my food website that I’ve earned a bit of a rep for being a hedonist. Starting today, I get to share my knowledge of the NYC food and beverage scene as a trendspotter for Scoutmob NYC. Check out the article by clicking the screenshot below.

Blueprint Cleanse, Day 3: Le Fin

By the time I press “publish” on this in a few minutes, it’ll be past midnight, which means I will have not eaten a single thing for three days. Wow. I didn’t eat anything, and I didn’t drink anything outside of my six juices (provided by Blueprint Cleanse) except for tea and water.

Wow.

I’m all clean! No major revelations while I was doing the juice cleanse. Just a few little revelations and reminders:
– Mealtime is sacred.
– Fresh bread smells amazing.
– Food and eating are meant to be inclusive.

What was it like?
I wrote about Day 1. I didn’t write about Day 2, because it was a breeze. And today was more of the same, though I think I said “Hallelelujah!” when I finished the last green juice.

Blueprint Cleanse, Day 1: On The (Juicy) Warpath

Me being a raging you-know-what today has nothing to do with the Blueprint Cleanse and everything to do with me being mid-menstrual cycle, running on 3 hours of sleep (up late working) and dealing with a workload that could flatten a horse.

That said, being HONGRY did not add a nice point to the situation. I’m not actually hungry. I have a faint feeling that I should be eating something, but my hunger is all mental.

Here’s a little vid I made before I left feeling like a traveling juice smuggler this morning: http://flic.kr/p/7PowXk

This Juice Is The Business: Blueprint Cleanse

Juice Delivery for Blueprint Cleanse

Juice Delivery for Blueprint Cleanse

Hi y’all. Last week was wild! From having an article on food and sex get published in New York Press to my food website showing up on Brokelyn.com, it was just a jam-packed few days. Very thankful. And very tired.

Did I mention tired? Since the new year started, I’ve been trying to be more mindful of input vs. output in my life, and the scales have recently tipped towards too much input again. Continue reading
