Lately I feel like all I’ve been doing is making checklists. Wedding stuff, work stuff, life stuff; all of it important, but some of it not so fun. So here’s a list of fun stuff.
- I went to Ottawa for a gorgeous wedding, and also ate my first BeaverTail. Oh-so-yummy maple goodness. I am also the proud new owner of red Olympic mittens, which are amazingly warm and just wonderful.
- I watched the Best Man I know give a terrific speech for his brother and his new bride.
- I talked about Mardi Gras with my pal Jason Boog for MediaBistro’s Morning Media Menu (listen here).
- I got contemplative about taking group tours with Mike Barish over at his very funny blog. Seriously, if you need a pick-me-up, go click on his gallery of SkyRest Tests. (Mike also wrote quoted me about tours over at Gadling).
- I wrote about Skeeball becoming the urban hipster throwback sport for DC Modern Luxury. (See the story here.)
- I dipped my toe into the real estate market with two features for UrbanTurf.com: One on the lack of housing inventory in D.C. and the other profiling a young buyer in the city.
- I blogged about the very cool website Kickstarter, and my friend Charyn’s impressive Global Citizen Project at Intelligent Travel.
- I swelled with pride as my pal Andrew made his way–by bus–to Antarctica. He did a fantastic job, and he makes my job easy. And now he’s tweeting penguin pics!
- I braved snowpocalypse to mail my save the dates, and put up the wedding website that my brother built for us. Um. I love both so much. And Darren is so obviously talented in so many ways (check out this article on his band and the Long Island music scene.)
- I was asked by the lovely Anne of the amazing Prêt a Voyager blog to write up a Boarding Pass report. I’m so flattered! Need to work on that next. Add it to the checklist!
I’m way behind on blogging lately, and have lots of updating to do. But here are some articles I’ve written recently: a piece on Tel Aviv for New York Magazine (link here), and stories on H Street’s art scene, wine tasting, and storytelling for DC Magazine. Definitely a few of my favorite things.
The November Issue of DC Magazine
And the December Issue of DC Magazine
I have another story out in the latest issue of D.C. Magazine about an elite travel group for mavericks in the business world, the aptly-named, Maverick Business Adventures. Totally dig the photo they used. Check it out in fancy PDF after the jump.
Out this month: My latest piece in DC Magazine on the hoops that caterers must jump through to get ready for the inauguration. I love this photo and I adore the headline, but my favorite part was the anecdote that I got from one of the caterers who has worked the event since Kennedy took office. Apparently, the snowfall on inauguration day was such that the caterer had to carry Jackie into the D.C. armory for the inaugural ball.
Just out: I have a new article in D.C. Magazine about what area caterers are planning for the round of inaugural balls this January. There’s a surprising range: menus culled from Lincoln-era recipes or deconstructed foam-based entrees dubbed “molecular gastronomy.” Yum.
October’s DC Magazine is now on newsstands, and in it I have a piece about where high-end travel agents are steering their clients this season. Even though we’re in the midst of the current economic crisis and the price of travel has skyrocketed they’re not dissuaded. “If you have money, you’re traveling better now than you would have ever traveled before,” says one über-agent.

My first batch of stories is out in DC Magazine’s restaurant issue this month – on cupcakes (pg. 100-101), Durian fruit (pg. 26), and wine (pg. 27). And I got a nice little shoutout on the contributors page (pg. 20) as well. You can find all of the stories online – flip through the mag or click thumbs to head right to the page.
