A Tale of Pizza, Curly Hair and Live Music…

It has been a whirlwind week in what is shaping up to be a whirlwind month for me- and although my upcoming weekend is looking to be just as action-packed as the last few days, with time spent with friends, stopping by parties, attending music shows/festivals, etc., I’m hoping I’ll be able to find some […]

Down East’ahs…

It’s been a long time since I’ve been to Maine (I think I had gone for a socially distanced and masked beach day in the Summer of 2020- but time is an illusion these days!) so when my longtime friend Sean, who I hadn’t seen in about a month or so asked me if I […]

Local Loves: The 1761 Old Mill

I had mentioned in a recent post that this past weekend marked what I think was the last series of belated-Christmas/New Year’s get-togethers with family and friends that I had lined up for the foreseeable future (although my birthday is this weekend- so we’ll see!) There was so much good food, great company and gift […]

Eating in Public…

The town of North Adams is not particularly far from me (it takes just under an hour to get there from my apartment, give or take) and is one of those places I keep vowing to visit more frequently given all the unique and interesting things there are in the area to see and experience- […]
