Posting has been light due to copious amounts of work, social and work events, housekeeping and Moxie duties, and much needed down time. Heading to the beach on Thursday morning for a bit of a break. I promise to at least take photos...
No, seriously. If you haven't had one in a while, it's time to revisit them. I assure you, you'll be pleasantly surprised. And in case you need more convincing, give my latest in Wine Enthusiast a read.
Last night @daisy17 and I went to Momofuku Noodle Bar to eat from their 10th Anniversary throwback menu. We ordered some of our favorites -- the shitake buns, the corn with miso butter, and the kimchi stew -- but we also received the crudo pictured above on the house. We have no idea why -- we don't know anyone there -- but we certainly enjoyed the dish! Thanks, Momofuku, and happy anniversary!
While I was in Maine last week, for a decent portion of the trip I was in a cabin on a lake in Casco, Maine. This was incredibly relaxing on many fronts, not the least of which was the spotty cell service and lack of wifi. Sometimes I don't realize how much time I spend either in front of a computer or checking my phone, futzing around on social media or texting with people. It was truly a pleasure to unplug and walk away from the electronic tether. Don't get me wrong -- I still looked at my phone and walked over to our neighboring cabin for a dose of wifi every now and again, but nowhere near as much as I do in my day-to-day life in NYC. I'm going to try to maintain more unplugged time when I'm not on vacation -- I've started with keeping my phone and tablet in the other room when I go to bed -- and hope to carve out more unplugged time in addition. So don't take it personally if I don't respond right away . . .
