Adventures in Spain: Madrid Day 3

Our final day in Madrid was a bit more low-key than our other days in Spain, but nevertheless, we packed in as much as we could before taking our overnight train to Portugal. First stop, the Reina Sophia. Although not timed, we bought our tickets in advance to avoid queuing at the museum. Getting there … Continue reading Adventures in Spain: Madrid Day 3

Adventures in Spain: Toledo

Just a short train ride away from Madrid is the charming fortified city of Toledo.

Restaurant Review: Pizza Loves Emily

For my birthday a few weeks ago, we headed to Clinton Hill for dinner Emily. Much like Emmy Squared, Emily focuses on delicious pizzas and one decadent burger. However, these pizzas are wood-fired Neopolitan pizzas. First up, we tried the Olympus Mons pizza, which was a cheese-less pizza. WIth Szechuan oil, garlic aachar, pickled jalapeno, … Continue reading Restaurant Review: Pizza Loves Emily

Restaurant Review: Emmy Squared

For former ADA Jared Mogil's birthday, we headed Emmy Squared, which is one restaurant of several awesome Pizza Loves Emily Restaurant group.

Also … Continue reading Restaurant Review: Emmy Squared

Summer Vist to Charleston

Although late August is the time to escape the city, it comes with one very travel prohibitive drawback...evening thunderstorms. Attempting to fly down to Charleston, South Carolina for the weekend, I was faced with this incoming tempest. Needless to say, my flight was canceled. Despite the travel setbacks and delays, I eventually made it down … Continue reading Summer Vist to Charleston

Restaurant Review: Casa Enrique

I cannot believe how long it has taken me to finally try Long Island City's very own Michelin Starred Casa Enrique. Just two subway stops away from me is some of the best Mexican food I have ever had. Luckily they take reservations, so one Saturday we headed there for brunch. Before we even ordered, … Continue reading Restaurant Review: Casa Enrique
