A team from PDQ brought chicken tenders to our office today in celebration of National Chicken Tender Day next week (July 27). The tenders came with their line of sauces, cookies, and apple slices with toffee-cheesecake dip. The PR people also passed out “stress-chickens” to us. Mine is now residing at my desk (cute!)

I’m an avid tea drinker (in a city full of coffee addicts 😭). I usually have at least 3-4 cups a day.

I liked its unassuming appearance and I’ve been longing for a place to get quality tea, so I decided to make a trip inside (along with my friends). Continue reading
When I was walking near Columbus Circle this morning, two women from Green & Black’s on the street gave me chocolates and an info card (excuse the bandage; I cut myself on a tuna can and aluminum foil while cooking last night 😦 ).

I honestly had low expectations because I’m a meat-eater and when I see the word “vegan,” I kind of associate it with something tasteless or not very satisfying. Continue reading
I learned today at work that NYC now has trapizzino—a pizza pocket sandwich that is apparently a popular Roman street food. It’s available at Trapizzino in the Lower East Side.
I’m making a mental note to check this place out once I can eat carbs again, haha.
You can check out a gallery that features Trapizzino here.
