One of the best things about New York (and there are too many to list, although maybe one day I will) is that there’s always something new to try. Always. And we’re lucky to have great publications and blogs that tell us all about all the things we should be doing. It’s easy to immediately say, “I must go here!” And easier to forget about it less than an hour later. Kind of like movie trailers. Especially the ones at the Angelika. How am I ever supposed to remember? We’re all busy people, with busy, crowded minds.
I recently started writing in a little notebook (with an ironically Parisian cover) all the restaurants, movies, shows, galleries, bars, et al that I saw, read or heard about in our great city . I thought, “There, now I won’t forget anymore.” But who was I kidding? I was the notetaker in college who scribbled (still do. not all girls have neat handwriting) and never turned a looseleaf page backwards until it was time to cram.
No, I needed to put my wildest New York ambitions somewhere I always look. The internet! I’ve started this blog in an effort to make my life New Yorkier. And the lives of any friends, roommates or dates I drag along with me. Your days of receiving ridiculous excel spreadsheets with New York Magazine’s “best of” lists organized by price and food genre are over. It’ll all go here. And I hope you enjoy.
