Nai Tapas Proves That Small Portions Are the Way To Go

Tapas hold a special place in my heart. Living for a brief time in Spain during my college years helped me to broaden my palate and fall in love with the culture. And let’s face it, tapas are a genius idea. You get to try multiple dishes without filling up on just one thing. Every restaurant should be a tapas […]

HYENA Revels in the Contradiction of Life

Art in all its glory is an expression of an individual. Whatever that individual feels is what will become the work. Art is also a communal thing, assembling a group of individuals ready to unite their emotions and perspectives to reflect them unto us. Like a mirror with different realities which will answer yours, art has always been there to […]

It’s Prime Time to Get Rid of That Dreaded Hangover

Hangovers suck. No one can disagree with that statement. And while the morning after cheeseburger from McDonald’s and smoothie from Robek’s usually does the trick (trust me, this how I survived my early twenties), the extra calories on top of a night of drinking probably aren’t the best idea. So how exactly are you supposed to get through the tough […]

A Must Try Restaurant in Carmel Valley

Don’t confuse this Carmel Valley charm with the bank! With it’s dark wooden interior, candelabras, artwork and old school milieu, it’s a stark contrast to the fluorescent lighting and white walls of most banks. Will’s Fargo, established back in 1959 (by a man named Will Fay, surprise surprise), was designed to merge a Victorian-style parlor with a western ‘fargo’ way […]

Join a Virtual Private Cocktail Society with the “Hooch” App

A few days ago, I learned about an app that I could hardly believe really exists. That may sound slightly dramatic, but after hearing (reading) about everything this particular application is capable of, you will mostly likely share a similar overzealous reaction. “Hooch,” a $9.99 per month or $99 per year subscription app, is a phone application that buys you one […]

Add TESSA’s Brunch to Your To-Do List

Brunch. It’s like a right of passage in New York. If you live here, you have to get on board or get out. No where else in the world is brunch such an institution. So when a New Yorker is in the mood to get their brunch on, it’s important to know where to go. TESSA, a very hip, urban-industrial […]

“L’amant Anonyme” is a Minimalistic Misfire

I will always remember what a friend of mine told me once upon a time on his way to watching an opera which was being performed at a black box. He said “I’m not excited, operas on small stages do not work.” Obviously, I went ballistic, saying that art can be done anywhere with the right story and the right […]
