How about we… Grab a quartino at Bar Jamon.
How about we… Play some shuffleboard at Fat Cat.
How about we… Check out Calliope in the East Village.
An awesome place I've visited:
Granada, Spain. If you go to that country and don't see the Alhambra, you're doing it wrong.
My perfect Sunday:
Sleep in, go to the gym, brunch outside with friends, cooking for the week in the afternoon/evening, all the HBO.
The movie I've watched the most times:
Girly answer: When Harry Met Sally Nongirly answer: The Princess Bride
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Born in the Midwest; college in the Dirty South; grad school in NYC...and then I never left! I love aimless wandering on the weekends, punctuated with a delicious bite or drink every few miles (or blocks? feet? inches?). I watch a lot of trash tv and make no apologies for it but I'll also school you in trivial pursuits. :) I love cooking for people because I love creating something that brings other people joy. Dinner parties are fab and I worship the pig :)
Obscure knowledge I possess:
All of it. All the obscure things are in my head somewhere. The useful things are what I tend to forget....
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Have brains and like cats. Lol.
For me, a first date no-no is:
Ordering my food for me...back away from the menu.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
as kind to me as I am to them
An infatuation of mine:
Peanut Butter. It probably constitutes half of my caloric intake.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Drink all the champagne, get an apartment with central air, and then open a teeny restaurant with my mom
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
I'm a scientist by trade, but have a super creative side too
I want to come home to:
Right now? A cozy blanket, a warm stew and a bottle of red wine.
