What a great day! They had a special event at VISA HQ for Michael Phelps. Pip was able to get me in for the meet and greet. We got our photo taken with him and got his autograph. I was star-struck and we were only with him for a minute, so we didn’t really get […]

Margaret Cho was hilarious! She gets raunchier every time I see her.

Margaret Cho’s burlesque show last Thursday, The Sensuous Woman, was a scream. I’m a big fan of her comedy, but I was a little skeptical. Burlesque? Shame on me for doubting her, because she and her troop of women delivered a fantastic night of entertainment.

They are well known for their cupcakes, and now I know why. These huge cupcakes are so moist and topped with the large helping frosting. The vanilla […]

New York: Wicked

After spending a week in balmy Orlando with Billy & Tim, we took an early flight to New York to celebrate our anniversary. We’re stayed at the W Hotel on Lexington & 49th. The hotel is great — modern style, comfortable beds, central location. After taking a nap, we explored the neighborhood. We’re very close […]
