Random day in NYC

So I had just left work for the weekend. As I was walking towards the train station, I saw a gala for one of the brands that I covered. Crap, this is right by where I work, and I just wrote about this initiative on the site! Why didn’t they invite me to come out? I love galas! Plus I would write about the event! SAMSUNG! WHERE YOU AT SON! I want in!

Today I’m just walking over to the groomers with my wife. When we arrive, I meet a parrot named Charlie who says “hello,” then reaches out with her claw to me. She lowers her head, and invites me to pet her. This is the coolest… Parrot.. Ever….


As our little walk through Kew Gardens continues, we stumble across this little event. They are selling food, jewelry, and all sorts of cool little things.

Whether you are headed over to the supermarket, or just taking an afternoon stroll through the city, one thing is for sure, you never know who or what you are going to encounter! You might just run into me having a slice!
