Last seasons pants

Good. But you'll still be able to go dancing after your meal.

When I read that the Top of the Standard (I still prefer to say Boom Boom Room, not sure why that changed) was starting to do a Sunday brunch, I immediately checked the calendar to see when my and Husband’s schedules would allow us a Sunday Funday. What could be better than a brunch party […]

good in the hoodsushiWorth the splurge

Sushi Seki’s original UESish location is very close to Boyfriend’s place, which is awesome except that Boyfriend doesn’t eat sushi.  I eat sushi; I  eat sushi quite frequently.

  • scene: Flatiron cool mixed with post-work cocktailing and pre-gaming groups having a fun (and loud) dinner
