kees chocolate   a disappointment… too many fancy flavors.


A lovely croquet monster at Cassis on the west side today on our way to ABT at Lincoln Center.  Th bread, from Tom Cat, was the best I’ve tried so far. On our walk home, on 60th Street there appeared a bakery, new to the neighborhood, Dinner at The Shadmoor, a bit disappointing but I […]


Peruvian on 7th near Bleeker street and Big Gay Ice Cream! Enjoying a vodka the Peruvian way, with pisco rather than vodka- I’m advocating for a permanent change.

The Sweet Life

Competing for the best, tho i think the last one I’ve been to is always the best….A tiny little shop on the edge of Chinatown, Delancey Street area if that means anything.  They carry their own home made chocolates (yes, tasty) and an assortment of European and penny candy.  I thought it was a good […]

My new MoviePass which keeps giving me […]

The Band’s Visit

This was one of those shows I went to see knowing very little about it.  I had read it was coming a few months go, bought a ticket and put it out of my mind.  A musical, I knew not what to expect.  When I go to a musical i expect something big like Hamilton […]


I can’t say what the name has to do with anything but I do know this is a beautiful little chocolate shop with an amazing variety I skipped the bonbons altogether and went for nut sticks, caramels, a couple of whoopie pies.

IFC Center

I made it. After recovering from the port authority train/ bus debacle and deciding train I got on the wrong one, overshot by miles, got off , walked across the platform, backtracked one stop, did a flight of stairs, got on the correct line and here I am!! I Dropped my book at Hudson park […]
