One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Treasure

The TV Guide

After having completely missed out on enjoying any of Berlin in the day yesterday, David and I rebounded nicely last night. We made our way out to White Trash Fast Food restaurant because we heard they have the best burgers in town … and I can report that that is VERY true. I can’t even express how much awesome they have packed into that fairly sizable eatery. This morning, we ventured out for breakfast and city exploring … but with our big Kylie Minogue concert tonight, I’m having a hard time focusing on much of anything. More »

Time Out Berlin

The TV Guide

Welp … today was a total wash for David and me here in Berlin. Because we both stayed up until after 5:00 AM local time to watch the Academy Awards last night (and root for our boy Trent Reznor), we kinda slept until 2:30 PM … and then both had to work a full day of writing so … it’s now 8 PM, we’re still working and the day is basically over.

Meandering In Berlin

The TV Guide

Today was our first full day here in Berlin and I am happy to report that it was a very fun and productive day for David me. We decided to try and figure out the public transportation system so we ended up traveling by tram, S-Bahn (above ground train) and U-Bahn (underground subway). Of course, we also traveled by foot and managed to stumble upon some very cool things. First, we grabbed an early coffee at the Ramones Museum Berlin / Cafe Mania (RMBC) then found the C|O Berlin Museum and checked out the Robert Mapplethorpe exhibit currently on display. More »

Ich Bin Ein Auslander

The TV Guide

Yay!! I am happy to report that David and I successfully made our way from NYC to Berlin, Germany without a single problem. Our business class Delta flight was as perfect as can be. We made it to our temporary Germany home without incident and already explored our new neighborhood for a bit. I’m not gonna lie, it’s really freakin’ cold here but we’ve been having so much fun we *almost* haven’t noticed ;) More »

Surf’s Up . . . In Manhattan

The TV Guide

So yesterday was David’s and my last day here in Manhattan before we fly off later tonight to Berlin, Germany to start phase 2 of our 5 year anniversary trip. We managed to pack a lot of fun into our last night in town … capping off a really fun week here in the Big Apple. We got to see some of David’s friends, grab some drinks at a surf shop bar (really) and then see the fantastic new Broadway musical The Book of Mormon. Not bad for a Thursday, yeah? More »

Theater Review: ‘The Book Of Mormon’

The TV Guide

Last night David, Marissa, Ryan and I were lucky enough to score fantastic seats for the first preview performance of the new Matt Stone and Trey Parker (South Park) Broadway musical The Book of Mormon. I don’t think I need to explain the tone of the show to any of y’all who are at all familiar with the humor of their animated series South Park … but for those of you not in the know, I’ll just say that humorous offensiveness is their brand of comedy. Because the show is in previews, I am hesitant to discuss specifics about the show but I will say that I LOVED every single second of the show wholly and entirely. It’s a show that is bound to enjoy some controversy but, IMHO, it will also likely enjoy much success from critics and the audience at large as a whole. More »

And The Hits Just Keep On Comin’

The TV Guide

Last night our evening’s entertainment took place at Joe’s Pub where a group of David’s friends and we took in a live show called Our Hit Parade. Weekly, a group of NYC’s finest Illuminati of the arts perform renditions of the Top 10 Songs of the Week … to much hilarity. Before we went to the show, David and I grabbed dinner at Vynl with his sister Eden and then it was showtime!! More »

Eight Arms To Hold You

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a pretty fun but bizzy day. I managed to do a bit of shopping on 5th Ave. yesterday and picked up a few things at Diesel (my fave store) before David and I met up with his friends Jeremy, Shane and Isaac for pre-Spider-Man drinks. Then we saw Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark (read my review HERE). Then we met up with our friends Paul, Yale, Marissa and Isaac (again) for post-Spider-Man drinks. I’m not saying that Turn Off the Dark drove us to drink but … yeah, there was a lot of drinking ;) More »

Theater Review: ‘Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark’

The TV Guide

So last night, after many months of blogging about the show as it was being made and thru all of the calamities and set-backs that have occurred since the show opened in previews last November, I finally got the chance to see Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark for myself. Based on all of the terrible reviews of the show, I must admit that my expectations were pretty low going in … but as a huge Spider-Man fan, I couldn’t help but be excited to see the show with my own eyes.

In Da Club

The TV Guide

Last night was a pretty chill night for David and me here in NYC. The original plan was for David to sit in a bar all night so that all of his friends could come see him. Unfortch those plans fell thru and then they got reinstated and in the end, we only got to hang out with a couple of friends … but they were the most fab of David’s friends :) More »
