My curated playlist is usually chock-full of upbeat indie-pop, but sometimes I like my vibe mellowed and a little dreamy, and that’s exactly what Yehra delivers.

A couple weeks ago, Minnie Driver did a discussion and book signing in Madison, CT thanks to R.J. Julia Booksellers. I bought a ticket to the event since I’m a fan of some of Minnie’s movies, I appreciate hearing authors talk about their books and I’m always a sucker for autographed merch. If I wasn’t…

A Night Of Firsts

For the past two years of this pandemic, things have been pretty routine for me, day-in-and-day-out of work and errands. The most exciting thing every day is what I’m having for dinner…spoiler alert, 9 times out of 10 it’s bean salad, vegan yogurt and a Clif Bar. Finally this week, I had an entire evening…
