Deal Alert! Open Bar at Greenhouse!

Another great open bar event from Overtime Group! Next Thursday, May 6, Overtime is throwing a party at Greenhouse, New York’s eco-friendly club (I’ve been before, and my friends were more obsessed with the waterless urinals than anything else).  This open bar includes complimentary vodka between 6:30 – 7:30pm and includes a live musical […]

A Practically Perfect Pizza Place (Do You Like That Alliteration?)

My roommate and I went out to dinner at Posto Thin Crust Pizza a week or so ago to celebrate my birthday. Although we’ve walked by it a bunch of times neither of us had ever tried it, so this was the perfect excuse. It had a nice outdoor seating area, but it […]

I’m Obsessed with Olive’s

One of the things I’m most thankful about my new job (yes, newsflash:  I now work for an NYC deal and discount Web site) is that my coworker Wells has introduced me to Olive’s.  This little soup, salad and sandwich shop in Soho produces some of the most phenomenal sandwiches.

While I hate to […]

Am I Licking Charcoals?

Fridays when I grew up meant pizza.  So a few Fridays back, we decided to head to Veloce for some pies.

It was around 9 p.m. when we showed up and tables were scarce, but the host said he could squeeze us in.  He made a big deal of putting our table of 4 […]

Coming Up! Relaunch Party at May Wah!

I can’t help it but anything with the word free and samples immediately catches my attention.  Thus, I froze when flipping through AM NY this morning. If you are a vegetarian (or like to eat vegetarian food from time to time), check out this event at May Wah down on Hester Street (between Baxter […]

Too Much Attitude at Alidoro

When I got an instant message that said, “I just had the best Italian sandwich in NYC” from my friend Dave, I immediately copied the Yelp review and sent it to my entire office.  Within 10 minutes of receiving the initial message, I was already en route to Alidoro.

As we turned down Sullivan […]
