Dinner with Barack Obama

March 30, 2008

I am one foodie who loves Barack Obama, so I was excited to see that Gray’s Papaya endorsed him.


Jack, the biggest Obama supporter I know, enjoys a hot dog in front of Gray’s Papaya on the Upper West Side.

Watch this video to see how you can win dinner with Barack himself! I’ve just donated $5 on his website and am now eligible. You can be too! If you win, he’ll fly you in, put you up, and buy you dinner (something better that hotdogs, i’m sure).

Welcome to Brooklyn Party!

August 13, 2007


As a welcome gesture, my dear newly-wed friends Vanessa and Payman decided to throw me a “Welcome to Brooklyn” Party. Let me tell you- these 2 really know how to entertain! (And they got a chance to try out all those wedding gifts). They had quite a spread prepared- all Brooklyn inspired fare. Our friend went out around 9pm to pick up a couple pies at Di Fara’s, and they were so busy that the poor thing didn’t return until 3 hours later….but she had with her the MOST amazing pizza. This stuff put Grimaldi’s to shame!

Payman had a full service bar going. Drink specials were posted on the board and my favorite was the “Brooklyn Cocktail” – a mix of Old Forrester, Dry Vermouth, Maraschino and Angostura.

But that was just the beginning….after several Nathan’s hotdogs, a Brooklyn Lager or 2, and lots of dipping in the chocolate fountain, I was officially sworn in as a Brooklyn-ite. Thanks, Vanessa & Payman! I look forward to more eating and drinking together in my new borough.
