Last year I started my first blog where my purpose was to review PR eateries. It partly came out of the fact that one cannot find any objective reviews of PR’s restaurants. Apparently – if one is to go by what’s written in newspapers and magazines – ALL PR restaurants are AWESOME and offer IMPECCABLE service.

Not true.  At all.

Definitely an OMG moment!!

I left NYC January of 2008 after living there for 6 years; specifically in Murray Hill. A day does not go by that I don’t miss it. But at least PR does have its charms. But I do miss it. And most of all, I miss the innovative food scene that was part of our daily lives.

So why OMG? ‘Cause my butt’s gonna be there this Tuesday, June 23rd! And then again the 25th thru the 29th. I cannot wait!

I just got back from J&W University where I took a week-long class. I have TONS of pics, but can’t download them until my MAC gets fixed. (Writing from dad’s comp now.) Hence why I haven’t posted much; mainly only been posting via Twitter & Tumblr. But hopefully the Geniuses @ the APPLE store will fix it. And if miracles exist, all my data will be recovered. If not, such is life and remember to back up your stuff TODAY.

So yeah. NYC! Food! Drinks! Friends! Food! Can’t wait. Hope the weather rocks and my walking shoes don’t fail me. Will try to stay out of the way of the regular NYC walkers since in a year and a half absence has surely slowed my butt down some. Nobody walks in PR. 😦
