Breakfast is a thing of joy. It’s the meal I always look forward to the most. It’s the meal that brings me the most comfort. It’s the meal I’ve created the most ritual around in my life. And it’s the meal I’ve been overlooking the most since the outbreak began.

A New York minute: 

Thursday, 4:23 p.m. 

The waters between Playa Del Carmen and the Mexican island of Cozumel are incredibly choppy. How do I know? Because I’m riding a ferry in between them. And on this, our trip back to Playa Del Carmen, my stomach is doing considerab...

A New York minute:

A New York minute: 

Saturday, 10:24 a.m.

Sitting on my couch in my Queens apartment, I am exhausted. For having only been a four-day week, it was incredibly taxing. So instead of getting up and getting groceries like I normally do, I decided to make cereal and coffee and...

A New York Minute:

Thursday, 5:08 p.m.

Not only have I scored a seat on the train during rush hour (a feat), but I’m still running on some leftover adrenaline from having just interviewed Andrew Zimmern. Sitting across from the man I’ve watched on the Travel Channel sinc...

Welcome to The Weekly, a (you guessed it) weekly briefing on life in the big city (more or less). As a Midwesterner who moved to New York City a little over a year ago, I’m both within and without, as F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote, and The Weekly will give you a peak into...
