Eating a Path Through Di Bruno Bros in Philly

In my opinion, there is nothing better than the 4 p.m. snack, or merienda, as Karina would call it in Buenos Aires. And when sitting down to this merienda, the only thing I want to see (and come to think of it, the only thing I ever crave, period) is cured meats and strong cheeses with an assortment of bread and crackers and maybe some grapes, so I don’t get scurvy. So naturally, I caught the overwhelming scent of tender prosciutto […]

Take Me to the Beach!

Many times, a vacation warrants adventure. Other times, your body goes on strike until you dress it in a bikini and take it to the beach. After my parents retired in Naples, Florida, I find myself needing more of these weekends… Follow me on Instagram: @TaraKalmanson -Tara

Anatomy of a New York Street Fair

The season has finally arrived: Entire New York avenue blocks are beginning to shut down in every part of the city to accommodate street fairs! While the location and theme at each New York street fair very much influence which booths you’ll find, there are always a few that remind you that you’re in good old Manhattan. When you’ve spent enough weekends at New York street fairs, you start to see a pattern… –Tara for TKGO

New York, I Love You

New York City. How could it get any better than this? Two videos hit YouTube this week, and both serve to remind the 19.4 million people who live here why they don’t leave. How spectacular is a city that can have such schizophrenic tastes? Discussing highbrow publications in one moment, and in the next, riding the subway without pants? See the magic yourself in these two quickies: They say you have to live here for 10 years before you can […]

A Love Letter to Little Italy at Christmastime

I loathe the holidays. Mariah Carey plays nonstop in every elevator. Fifth Avenue is not walkable. Stores are not navigable. Sidewalks are littered with more shopping bags than people. And if I was not forced to cross Broadway by the fact that I live on the edge of Soho, I would have walked five blocks out of my way just to circumvent the chaos. But this is only the daytime scene. When stores close and restaurants open for dinner service, […]

Little Italy’s San Gennaro Festival

As Little Italy’s most famous festival, the Feast of San Gennaro turns Mulberry Street into a madhouse. Unlike most street festivals, where a visitor can expect to stroll along a wide avenue, pick up a lemon ice and browse racks of jewelry, no one was kidding when they named San Gennaro a “feast”—there is no jewelry to be had here, and no one comes looking for it, either! The Italian restaurants on the block set up tented booths on the […]

A Brief Jaunt in the French Quarter

The beautiful French Quarter of New Orleans. Four hours, in nine photographs and a video. But the best part is seeing the Transformers street performer in action: –Tara

Give Blood, Eat Dessert

Check out our guest post! Our friends at Sip N Sizzle, a new NYC food & reviews blog, reached out to us for a guest post. Inspired by the 30 flyers the New York Blood Center sent me in the last 2 months, I explain my three favorite places (and desserts) to refuel after giving blood. One catch: No cupcakes allowed! We all know where to get those… Check it out here: Top Places to Get Sugar After Giving Blood […]
