The Brunch Review: Harp & Crown (Philadelphia, PA)

Two brunch reviews in a row, whaaat? Idk, why not right? We all love brunch so lets celebrate it two weeks in a row. (Catch up on last week’s review here). This brunch was to celebrate my lovely bestie-fellow-birthday-diva, JD. We headed to Harp & Crown on a recommendation from my friend Aminah (aka the queen of all good food in Philly). I’ve only been to Harp & Crown for drinks so I was excited to actually try the food there. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Make a reservation, ASAP.

The Brunch Review: Union Bar & Kitchen (New York, New York)

Well, it has been a WHILE since I’ve done a brunch review (that’s not to say I haven’t brunched lately…come on now). Of course I’ve gone to brunch almost every weekend in January, but I’ve been going to the same old places. Honestly, the last brunch review I wrote was back in July when I went to visit friends in NYC…and this current review features another NYC brunch spot I went to a few weeks ago. I guess I should just keep visiting NYC for good brunches. I know my friend JD will encourage this since he’s always yelling at me for not visiting more often… ;)

Anyways, lets get to it. As much as I love Philly, I gotta say, NYC is the mecca of brunch & rightfully so. Up for review is Union Bar & Kitchen. Cheers.

10 Tips for Pulling Off an Awesome Friendsgiving

When my group of friends and I were juniors in college, we decided to throw our first Friendsgiving (read about it here).  We had just moved into our junior apartments and figured we could all manage to make traditional Thanksgiving dishes. What started off as 10ish people wanting to sit around and eat turkey turned into 50+ friends reserving a lecture hall & my friends Danielle and Christa making not one, but two turkeys.

The first Friendsgiving

Senior year, we had another Friendsgiving, just as big, just as fun. When we all graduated, we dropped the ball on Friendsgiving (idk, we were learning how to be adults or something), but then last year we came back in full force (albeit smaller than our original Friendsgiving) and managed to pull off the prettiest/most adult meal I’ve ever had.

Friendsgiving 2017 will be happening next weekend, and it’s safe to say that my friends and I have this whole Friendsgiving thing down pat. So, I wanted to share some expert tips on how to throw your very own awesome Friendsgiving. Gobble, gobble.
