Tunes: Party Like It’s 1998

On June 7th, I hit my milestone 30th birthday.  I celebrated with a bat mitzvah themed 13 Going on 30 Party at Sammy’s Roumanian.  We dressed in 90s attire and danced to the musical stylings of an in-house keyboardist.  If you want to re-live the late 90s, enjoy this playlist featuring all songs from 1998,…

My parents are coming tonight!  Unfortunately, it did not work out that I could take the day off work tomorrow, but I am thrilled to be hanging out with them all weekend. The most important item on my nightstand right now is my Jo Malone lotion.  It is saving my hands from the terribly dry…

Prohibition

I thought about bailing on Matt and Karina on Saturday night.  Just for a minute.  Obviously, I wanted to hang out with them but since plans didn’t solidify til around midnight, this old fogie was ready to call it a night and head to bed.  But then I remembered how much I loved those crazy…

I’m still feeling unsettled by the bombings in Boston.  I can’t make heads or tails of such an attack so I’ve stopped trying and instead have just been thankful that all my loved ones are safe and sound. Now that it’s spring, Smorgasburg is back – this time with a brand new location.  While the…
