Waffles are one of my favorite foods and waffle sandwiches from Waffle & Wolf just make a good food even better.

After living in New York City for seven years, I am still amazed by the sheer amount of cultural opportunities available. I love visiting the city’s famous museums and galleries and, living in such an inspiring place, most of my favorite artists often show their work in this metropolis.

A few weeks ago, I went to the Lower East Side location of The Meatball Shop. The dark, cozy space was packed with diners eating and waiting for tables, so I was told the hostess would call when seating was available.

The 20th Original GLBT Expo heads to NYC’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center this weekend (Sat., March 9th & Sun., March 10th). The two-day event will be chock-full of activities, including an appearance by entertainer Amanda Lepore, Q&A with Project Runway Season 4 contestant and activist Jack Mackenroth, performance by singer Jade Starling and much more.

I love brewery tours: you get to try new beers and see how they’re made. I’ve been on quite a few tours around the country (and in Ireland), but one of my favorites is right here in New York. Williamsburg's Brooklyn Brewery offers an extensive tour of its brewhouse followed by a beer tasting.

Last week I finally got a chance to visit Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar, Food Network star Guy Fieri’s enormous Times Square eatery. We walked through the bar and downstairs to the basement dining space, passing a window into the restaurant’s huge kitchen, where you can watch a slew of cooks create your meal.

This past Friday, I had the opportunity to check out EVR (pronounced "ever"), a cool new lounge in Midtown West. When looking for the W. 39th street location, keep your eyes peeled for a heavy wooden door and a small golden sign to the left of the entryway, which reads “EVR”.

Last night, I saw the hilarious new musical Hands on a Hardbody, which follows 10 contestants competing to keep their hands on a truck from their local Nissan dealership. Set in Texas, the truck takes center stage literally, but also in each of the characters’ minds as the American Dream.

New York City is full of specialty stores, and Tender Buttons is definitely one to visit. The quaint shop, in a brick townhouse on the Upper East Side, is bursting at the seams with buttons for sale—housed in display cases and wooden drawers. Several antique buttons are even mounted and framed on the wall.
