One if by Land, Two if by Sea

So the other week, my girlfriend said, “Let’s do something special!” Let’s go somewhere that we never heard of.” So I said, “Sure-sounds, good! You pick. So my girlfriend picked the restaurant One if by Land, Two if by Sea which is located at 17 Barrow Street which is part of the West Village. Yes,…

Et Alia Theater Presents This Is Me Eating______

Let’s face it. We all have our very own relationship with food. For some of us it’s a non-issue and for some of us it’s an issue. It can go either way dependent. Nonetheless, I was thrilled to learn about a new immersive exploration of a play titled This Is Eating Me _______. This Is…

New York City is Back

I just attended live and in person the 2021 Event Planner Expo which was held at the Metropolitan Pavilion located at 125 West 18th Street. It felt kind of surreal to be in this large space with a lot of people given what New York City went through and is still going through due to…

Williamsport and Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon

It was time to head out of Dodge this past weekend and so I took an adventure to Williamsport, Pennsylvania and then headed to Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon.

I loved the spaciousness of the restaurant (think cathedral ceilings) and the food was French-Mediterranean cuisine that for me painted a picture of the coastal cuisine of…

Jim Thorpe Pennsylvania

So it was time to head out of Dodge and I took a day bus trip to Hellertown, Pennsylvania and Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania. In Hellertown, Pennsylvania we visitied the Lost River Caverns, nature’s underground wonderland. There was a guided walking tour but I must admit that I’m not a cave fan and so I didn’t…

Vote for Sora!

OK. So the other day, I got really brave and entered New Beauty Magazine’s contest called Fab over 40. I really thought long and hard about it but then I said to myself, “Sora, if not now-then when” and filled out the form online and submitted some photos I let it go and then I…
