All Hallows Eve In NYC

The TV Guide

Hallowe’en in NYC was so much fun yesterday, I don’t even know where to begin. I guess I’ll just rattle off all of the fun stuff that my friends and I got up to in an effort to adequately describe how fun my day was. Before any of the Hallowe’en fun got started, I made my way to the NYC Marathon Expo to pick up my race bib and shirt for the big race tomorrow morning. Then I met up with Sarah and Mark in the city so that we could do a bit of shopping in SoHo before we returned home to get ready for the Hallowe’en fun ahead. We had PLANNED on meeting up with Shannon and our NEW PITNB intern Iris but the damn West Village Hallowe’en Parade LITERALLY got in our way. We ended out the night at a party with my friend Michael and his friends … OH and then late night eats after midnight at a great little greasy spoon in Brooklyn. Ah, the life. More »

Welcome To New York

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon I made the cross-country trek from LA to NYC where I will be spending the weekend and where I will be running the NY Marathon on Sunday morning. The flight was a breeze and I met a very nice man whose wife is also running the marathon this weekend so it was nice chatting with him about the race. I met up with my friends Sarah and Mark, who are also in town this weekend and we made our way to Brooklyn where we are staying this time around. After we dropped off our bags, we hit the town for some pizza and booze. Our NY adventure is officially underway. More »

The Return Of Kiki

The TV Guide

Last night I got to spend some quality time with my dear friend Kirsten who is visiting LA this week from Australia. She flew into town for a friend’s wedding and is staying in town so that she can spend time with those of us who miss and love her. I haven’t seen Kiki since we traveled to Europe together in the summer of 2013 so I was really happy to spend time with her last night. We were joined by Darion and Omar for dinner and a movie at The Grove and a veritable blast was had. More »

Just For Laughs

The TV Guide

Last night I got to spend a lot of really great quality time with Tamar now that she’s back home from her extended trip to NYC last week. We met up for a pizza date at Lucifer’s Pizza before we made our way to the Public House for a night of stand up comedy. Tam has been telling me about this this comedy night for weeks now and I finally got to check it out. As always, I enjoyed a really fun night with Tam so, yup, my Monday night was the best. More »

Miler Mornings, Horror Nights

The TV Guide

With one week left to go before I run the New York Marathon next weekend, I had one last race to run here in SoCal ahead of my big race. I made my way down to Huntington Beach, CA for the Surf City 10 Miler race early yesterday morning for one last long run along the Pacific Ocean. The rest of my day was spent recovering on the couch … and it was glorious. Last night, I was invited by a group of friends to attend Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios and even tho I hate hate HATE haunted houses, I bit the bullet for last night’s event and had a super fun, thankfully not-too-scary night with some great friends.

Star-Lord To The Rescue

The TV Guide

My Saturday was pretty quiet for the most part. I spent a leisurely day at home for the first half of the day before I made my way down to Huntington Beach, CA to pick up my race stuff for the Surf City 10 Miler this morning. After I got that little errand squared away, I made my way to my friends Jessika and Jesse’s place for their annual Hallowe’en party. I decided to dress up as Star-Lord Peter Quill from Guardians of the Galaxy … I looked pretty good, if I do say so myself. Even tho I had to wake up early and run 10 miles the following morning, I managed to have myself a really fun time with my costumed friends at this little shindig. More »

The ‘Nightmare’ Before Charli

The TV Guide

Last night was very full, very fun night for me. In the early evening, I met up with my friend Eileen for a showing of The Nightmare Before Christmas in 4D at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, CA and then I met up with my friend Amelia so that we could make our way downtown to The Mayan to see Charli XCX in concert. Both events were crazy fun in very different ways. It had been many years since I’ve seen Nightmare and it’s been 20 years since I’ve seen it in a movie theater … so I had forgotten how really great the movie is. Charli‘s show last night was much bigger than her last show here in LA at the El Rey. I ran into a bunch of friends at the show and we had the best night ever!! More »

Sushi Sushi

The TV Guide

Last night my BFF Adriana came over to see my new place and hang out for a bit before we made our way to a sushi bar nearby. She and I had been texting all day about our NEED for a sushi dinner so our plans to see a movie fell by the wayside after we started stuffing our faces. Aide came by my place for a quick tour beforehand and then it was sushi time! Wee!! More »

2 Concerts, 1 Night

The TV Guide

Last night was a pretty busy, very fun night for me. After I ran around taking care of a couple of errands, I made my way to the Hotel Café to see All American Rejects play an intimate acoustic show that featured hit after hit song. After the AAR show was over, I hightailed it over to Echo Park to see Fever The Ghost play their first headline show here in LA at The Echo with my friend Amelia. The two shows were very different but were both very fun experiences. More »

Mickey’s Halloween Party

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my friend Gillian and her little girl Gemma at Disneyland for Mickey’s Halloween Party and we had so much fun. I’ve never been to any of the ticketed Halloween parties at Disneyland over the years (primarily because I never saw the point to paying extra to attend a function at the theme park on top of what I already pay for my Annual Pass). But, since I’ve been in a crazy Disney way this year, I figured … yes, I must go. The party is the only time Disney allows everyone to wear costumes in the park and they provide free candy, character meet and greets and entertainment that is exclusive to this event so it was all very new for me. Gillian dressed up as Alice, Gemma dressed up as Merida and I dressed up as Anakin Skywalker (just before he turned into Darth Vader) and we had a blast. More »
