Well, hello there!
Life has been kicking my butt lately. How has your summer been?
I thought I would do a brain dump of what’s been on my mind lately or what’s been up with me. Here it goes:
1. I discovered Instagram.
I am totally tardy to the party, but I thought I would join Instagram. I’m still not exactly all that active on it, but feel free to join me over there. I’m @TryItFoodTravel there, too.
I’ve been primarily been taking pics of places around New York City and not much of me.
In the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn
Missoni & David in the Meatpacking District in Manhattan
The Notorius B.I.G. in Fort Greene, Brooklyn
2. I’ve been looking at a lot of art.
This is primarily for my 101 in 1,001 days list. It’s been fun pushing myself to see more art. I got a chance to go to the Keith Haring exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. I enjoyed this since I actually remember Keith Haring just a little. I could see a lot of old New York City from the ’80′s and much of his artwork was used in early AIDS awareness public campaigns throughout the city. Here’s an thought-provoking quotation from him.

3. I’ve been visiting farmers’ market quite a bit.
Another 101 in 1,001 days item for me has made me into a lover of the farmers’ market. It’s more of an effort, but I’ve been loving the summer produce I’ve been getting these past two months.
4. I’ve been eating some new places.
With all of the farmers’ market trips, I’ve been cooking a little more, but that hasn’t really been totally true. Come on! It’s me.
The Salty Pimp from Big Gay Ice Cream Truck – vanilla soft serve ice cream, dulce de leche, sea salt dipped in chocolate
The Filet Mignon Sandwich from Pat LaFrieda at Citifield, home of the Mets
So, yeah. That’s my summer. It’s been fun, if a little uneven. It’s been parts uneventful and parts super busy.
How has your summer been? What have you been up to?
