russian girls about to eat falafel

Prior to our arrival at Anna Maria, after I humblebragged about dining at Oasis almost every other night and always after a visit to the bar. Anna and Natali said they'd not had falafel before. So then we had to have some falafel too.

Dragging My CouchSurfers on a Brooklyn Pizza Tour

russian girls about to eat pizza slices

A day before they were to head home to the motherland, my CouchSurfers, Natali and Anna, revealed they'd not yet had a slice of real New York City pizza.

    Aphex Twin logo spray painted williamsburg sidewalk

    I could not be more excited by a spray-painted thing on the sidewalk. There's an Aphex Twin album scheduled to be released in September. No doubt this is foretelling the arrival of that.

    Batman Above Myrtle Ave JMZ Stop

    young man rooftop bed-stuy

    A young man perches atop a building near the Myrtle JMZ stop. He was rapping along to what could only be Rick Ross in his headphones, judging from what I heard: the third grade vocabulary, misanthropic content, and languid intonation,
