totes failing at my new years resie to blog more. life at the taco stand keeps me busy I tell you.
catching you all up…
work: chipoho is still on the road to restaurateur. our target date is end of march. i think we can do it (fingers crossed). still rolling my way through life one burrito at a time and laughing out loud every time these gems end up in my store. out of all the stores in nyc and new jersey, it shows up at mine. i see it as a constant reminder of why i made the move to get back with the burrito. full circle.
cultivate dates announced! so mark your callys. i’ll be at sf and chi.
cat: cat is cat. sleeping the dream. still the ruler of the free world.
i survived the snow storm.
still going to the church of brunch every sunday that i’m off.
(peels, east village - the build a biscuit is genius)
(buttermilk channel, brooklyn - worlds best pancakes and the syrup… buy it. it’s by poorfarm farm. heavenly)
still surviving off of coffee. really need to save my pennies for an espresso machine.
- rook is a local new jersey coffee company that will soon have me renting a zip car so i can visit their shops and buy some cold brew. check them out! http://www.rookcoffeeroasters.com/
still listening to the lumineers. on repeat. every. single. day. looking forward to seeing them in maryland in july with ma girl meaghan.
had a short but super sweet trip back home a month back.
i ate plenty of pie. dear pie hole, that earl grey pie is stupid, stupid good.
the brunch brigade finally brunched as one.
though i have to say i was let down with my meals at a couple of new “top” la restaurants. bestia-skip, cooks county-go for brunch or dinner. but the company at meals made it all worth it.
i got a ride to the airport from one of my favorite faces that i miss so much daily.
a short trip to la in april is in the works. i’m already planning my eats for sf/napa in june and chi in september.
and 4 months later, i have tentitive brunch plans with this guy.
oh and big news: i have moved! left my humble living room abode in the wonder of inwood for a spacious room in weehawken new jersey. and I honestly couldn’t be more excited. the commute was starting to take a toll on me and in the long run, since I plan on being in the harvey patch (hear that mother!) for awhile, i need to be more accessible to my store and future store. so as of today, i am a jersey girl. i think it is now acceptable to wear my uggs out in public other than running downstairs in the rain for a midnight slice of pizza.
i’m dreading unpacking, and as i look at all the boxes, i feel like i have too much stuff! i kind of want to keep everything in the boxes just to pretend it doesn’t exist. though the wine fridge is plugged in and stocked, and i did unpack this little ditty below.
well, that seems to be the gist of it all. keep ya posted next month!
