Don’t Believe The Hype

Okay, I take that back. Don't always believe the hype.

New Year. More Fun.

The instagram pic above was where Tom and I started 2018. We put on some sparkle and velvet and went head first into the new year. It was our very first New Year's as NYC residents; there was no way we were staying home. A few months ago, I read about a new spot in ...
