Food For Thought

I didn't know Tony Bourdain personally, but since 2013, I spent a good deal of time talking about him, as he was the Patron Saint of Bronx Academy of Letters a small school in the Bronx where I've spent the past five years volunteering on their Advisory Board. Tony, as everyone called him at BAL, was the ...

Old School

Thomas Wolfe said, "You can't go home again," but that doesn't apply to people from Rhode Island. Tom and I went back to Providence this weekend for his 30th reunion from Brown.

The Best Thing?

A good friend of mine who's lived in NYC most of his adult life asked me what the BEST thing I've done since moving to the city was. I didn't have an immediate answer. There was an awkward pause as he waited for me to speak, and then I said, "Everything." And when I answered ...
