I got married a week and a half ago and it was a brunch wedding. We didn’t specify dress code on the invite, but everyone effectively went with “just look nice” and it was extremely easy!

This episode, like this whole season, has had tons of flaws,, but I was really, really excited for this episode to end on that shot of June at the center of the supermarket chaos, with nothing but muzak in the background. It would have been a perfect, stark final shot (again, nonwithstanding all of this episode’s Read more

I once met a group of bike kids by Grand Army Plaza, and they were nice enough to let me photograph them (I had my old film camera with me.) They were super friendly and cool, and we traded Instagram information. Go fuck yourself.

Costco hot dogs have been $1.50 since my mom first took me to the New Rochelle NY Price Club when I was about 7. I’m a grown-ass adult now, and I’m thankful every single day that a (pretty good) hot dog is the single most constant thing in my life. Read more

Can confirm Big Alice Brewing in Queens has both of these things. I’m sure I’ve been to some other NYC bars than can claim this, but I can’t think of them at the moment because there are definitely not enough of them.
