My latest post for the +Quirk Books blog. One for the #MadMen  fans.
It's almost time to say goodbye to one of the most iconic, smart and stylish shows to grace our TVs in the last decade—if not ever. Before we part ways with Don Draper and company, let's take a literary peek at the favorite books of some of your favorite (and least favorite) characters of Mad ...

Happy #StPatricksDay!
In honor of Irish heritage, here is my latest blog post for +Quirk Books. 
Where there's a list of top Irish authors, there's usually James Joyce. Which isn't to say the Ulysses scribe isn't praiseworthy, just that Ireland has produced lots of other literary talent, too. As we celebrate Irish heritage in March, it's time to offer the spotlight to some of the country's ...

Excellent news and a cause for celebration.
The FCC approved the policy known as net neutrality by a 3-2 vote, with FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler saying the agency will ensure that no entity "should control free open access to the Internet."

What do you do when you're 18, living in NYC and smitten with a boy in Alaska? You plan a trip to Alaska, of course.
3/9/96 Big news: I’m going to Alaska to visit Bradley (no exclamation marks, only because I find them kind of cheesy). I don’t know how, but I miraculously managed to convince my parents to let me ...

I am shocked that this isn't being reported widely. According to this study, the formaldehyde in e-cigarettes make them potentially more cancerous than long-term smoking. This should be all over the news.

And here's an opinion piece that states the study was flawed and misreported, so now I don't know what to believe: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/27/opinion/joe-nocera-is-vaping-worse-than-smoking.html?_r=0

Very excited to be blogging for +Quirk Books! Here's my first post.

#books #amreading  
Books have long served as inspiration for filmmaking. Nowadays, as some publications become blockbusters, many cinematic adaptations come with built-in audiences of readers eager to see the beloved source material brought to life on the screen. But for every Gone Girl or Wild, there are films ...

Fascinating new development for anyone following the #Serial case.
The former classmate of Adnan Syed's who could hold the key to unraveling his conviction in the murder of Hae Min Lee has written a new affidavit reasserting that she was with Syed at the exact time the state argued that he killed his ex-girlfriend in 1999, and alleging that...

New blog post. Seriously, though: people in love can be so annoying.
March 21, 1996 It’s hard to keep my hand straight as I write this—no not caffeine, sleep deprivation. Bradley called last night around midnight (I was watching “Hellraiser III,” which wasn’t that g...

Every day is #ThrowbackThursday  on my blog. Here's the latest post.
3/18/96 17 days until Alaska. Before I talk about him, however, I have to mention something else that happened. I saw Nisa a couple of days ago after not seeing her in over 4 years. I was a little ...

New blog post. It was only a matter of time before I told the boy in Alaska I loved him...
3/2/96 Bradley and I spoke on the phone for 6 ½ hours on Thursday night (early Friday morning). I called him at midnight and at 3:00 the stupid fax machine* disconnected us but he called me right b...

I love pretty much all Asian food, so I was biased to like this Malaysian place from the start. Nevertheless, I had a great dinner there. Beginning with a boozy Thai Iced Tea and some delicious roti, through to the noodle dishes my friend and I shared. The space is a bit cramped but cozy and service is attentive. Would definitely return and try more of the menu.

Modern Asian food in an intimate setting? Yes, please! A 7 course tasting menu for under $50? Sign me up! Some dishes were better than others but overall, a memorable meal. The mahi mahi taco was quite possibly the best taco I've had in my life and scallop and bacon satay was also terrific. The pork bun and short rib were both yummy but on the dry side but the edamame dumplings (which were shaped more like ravioli) and mini-ice cream cones that finished the meal were quite good. The cocktails were also terrific (try the rum punch, which packs a--well, you know--without being too sweet). Make sure to check out the bathroom and see how many movie quotes (which are piped in through speakers) you can identify.

It's no substitute for a real casino. There's a decent selection of slot machines, but the lack of table games is a bummer (and an electronic dealer is not the same). Also, casinos offer free drinks, so to charge for them at this place feels greedy. Seems like all the machines are tight here and I've heard it's hard to win money. I don't expect to be back any time soon.

Great place to go for a healthy lunch. The ingredients are fresh and well-prepared, with an emphasis on veggies and lean proteins. You always feel like you're doing something good for your body after eating here. Don't let the long lines intimidated you, because it moves quickly.

This is my happy place. Definitely the nicest casino I've been to in Atlantic City (and I've been to quite a few) and a lovely hotel with good dining options. I do wish there were more lower stakes tables ($5 tables are rare, if they exist at all) but hey, you get what you pay for. It's the small things, like serving drinks in glass cups instead of plastic ones, and having a general nice polish to everything instead of the worn feel of some of the casinos on the boardwalk. Also, the staff is unilaterally accommodating and super-nice, whether at the hotel, casino or restaurants. Can't wait for my next visit.

Nice spot for budget-friendly Japanese food (with some Korean options thrown in for good measure). Has tables if you want to stay and eat, but it's a very basic cafeteria vibe, so I usually grab and go. The sushi is quite good and if you have a sweet tooth, there's also a selection of desserts (the mochi is my favorite).

Best cupcakes in the world! Some find the icing too sweet but I can't get enough of it, especially the chocolate. The cake itself is moist and just barely contains the generous coating of icing. I wouldn't recommend waiting if the line is around the block because I'm impatient, but it's definitely worth the wait.
