01. Let's do this.

Hello, friends! I say that because there are about 15 people signed up for this right now, and I think you are all actually my friends (like, in real life). Thanks for being the best support team I know. I'll be experimenting with format and content, so don't hesitate to reach out and let me know what you like, and what you don't. Your feedback is invaluable.

So, this newsletter. What’s the deal? 

Every so often, I'm going to send you something like this, and it's going to feature what I'm into in the realms of food, goods, travel, books, the list goes on. I’ll switch it up each time. No repeats. Or hesitations. (Concentration).

OK, enough rambling. Onto the intel..


You know what I can't get enough of, ever? The kale flatbread at Lois (which also happens to be the cutest wine bar in Alphabet City). They make it in their "kitchen" which is narrower than most of our bathroom sinks, but they do that space justice. A perfectly fried piece of light-as-air bread (I know, sounds like a contradiction, but *trust*), topped with chopped kale, pickled scallions, creme fraiche and preserved lemon. It's the best snack I've found. Could double as dinner. And bonus points: you can have some really tasty wine on tap with it.


If you follow me on my IG alter-ego, @bearlovesbeers, you know that I'm a Hudson Valley Brewery devotee. New on the NY state craft beer scene last year, and brewed out of Beacon, NY, they're making some of the best sour beers around. Even if you're not a fan of sours, I trust that you will find a beer from HVB that you'll find interesting. So many of them have made my taste buds do a double take. Favorites include: Incandenza (an awesome sour IPA, btw, if you've never had one, try one!), Amulet (a sour farmhouse ale aged in oak barrels w/ blueberries & hibiscus flowers, whaaaa?) and Holy Icon (a sour Double IPA brewed w/ passionfruit & vanilla beans, and oh yeah, this one will definitely get you drunk at 8% ABV). Their can art is also pretty sweet.


So, I'm trying to buy less stuff. Which is hard. But I'm always thinking to myself "Why do I need all of this stuff anyway?" Maybe some of you can relate. Anyway, if you're also trying to buy less stuff but you're also trying to fill your home with more green things (hello clean air and oxygen), then consider these $10 macrame plant hangers that are inexpensive, yet bring so much joy to my life and my plant friends. Prime shipping eligible, of course. What am I, a heathen? I literally have two on the way rn.


As you may know, I'm a fitness studio explorer, but one studio and instructor has got me hooked. I've been taking Michael's spin class (with my best friend, Megan) since he used to bring his own portable projector to Equinox. He always had the most bad ass playlists, and he played MUSIC VIDEOS so you could stare at Rihanna while doing a 10 out of 10 breakaway on the bike. Talk about motivation. Fast forward 4 years or so, and Michael has two of his own studios (Soho and Flatiron), a pack of great instructors and more permanent projectors. But he's still bringing the beats, the sweat and great rides. If I ever feel like I need to unwind or just sweat it out, I'm always looking at The Monster Cycle. Btw, Lindsey is a 2nd favorite instructor. Your first ride is only $15 and his classes are typically on the more affordable side, so give it a shot if you're looking for something new.

And a few other random things.

That's it for now. ✨ Let me know what you think!
