a la carte is the new black

It’s shots like this that make me realize I don’t know jack about photography. I had another strange dream last night, I think it can be attributed to the 3 martinis I had with dinner. J and I went to...

Ironically, BLT does not sell B.L.T.’s

Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes, e-mails, calls, cards and gifts. I had a great time out tonight with Jhim, Everett, Michael, Mike, Mikey, Richard and Fredo. I’m totally exhausted, but it’s all good. I should have taken *tomorrow*...

just followin’ my lead

Well the Express came to the same conclusion I did, a little late tho. Baby wig! I’ll take the scoop credit in silence, seeing as how I’m just a wee journal and they’re all widely distributed and all. I changed...

When a restaurant offers ½ price bottles of wine off their regular wine list for happy hour? GO. Don’t worry about waking up on time the following morning — it’ll work itself out tomorrow. Michael has the week off so...

Last night I took myself out for dinner at the District Chophouse. There wasn’t a special occasion, I just felt like having a nice dinner out instead of heating up my apartment making something at home. I did have a...
