Cities in May:
New York, New York
Bronx, New York
Albuquerque, New Mexico
New Brunswick, New Jersey
Cape May, New Jersey
Brooklyn, New York
And just like that, tomorrow is June.
Some of my favorite workspaces #betterthanadesk
A meeting in Philly with longtime client and friend Regina. We faced a (beautiful, historic) brick wall for hours, discussing the New York Public Library's educational packets over cheesesteak sushi. (I'm not sure that I'm a fan of cheesesteak sushi.)
I do love Philadelphia though. It is one of the prettiest cities. I think I could live here.
Next up NYC. Catching up with colleague and friend; talented producer Marie-Michele Jasmin-Belisle was high up on the list of to-do's for the day. MM & I have an undeniable love of the Southwest and I hope we will have a chance to coffee in the Burque sometime soon.
We checked into one of my most favorite work-places in the East Village - Society Cafe. I hesitate to spread this news, but if you need a spot to work at lunchtime, this is a go-to. The staff is friendly and accommodating, electricity is a-plenty, and if you arrive in the sweet spot between breakfast and lunch, you have your choice.
Off to Brooklyn. I am thankful that client and friend Lindsay MF Doyle invited me to spend the afternoon working with her. We met at the Wing in DUMBO - one of the prettiest spots in Brooklyn IMHO - and had some time to talk marketing and hamburgers.
After work we enjoyed sushi and views of the bridge. (Note: The Philadelphia Roll was named appropriately for the cream cheese NOT cheesesteak). And we had a glass of whiskey and wine respectively discussing common misconceptions such as birds being born with lice and dandelions making you pee-the-bed.
Off to take a break to hang with my smarty-pants niece for her graduation celebrations and enjoy working in one of the most stunning workspaces of the trip.
Thanks to my hotspot and non-polarized sunglasses, the beach at Cape May, New Jersey became my office. It sits at the southern tip of New Jersey and it’s known for its grand Victorian houses. The Cape May Lighthouse provides views across the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean.
Tonight I'm at the Bay for sunset. Not a bad gig.
Back in Philly for a couple of days. No meetings this time. I did get to work in this space by day, and run around the city of Philly by night. The best part? I was able to convince my mom to spend a night with me and attend the Chinese Lantern Festival. I think I am now a big, big fan of foot juggling.
The month is almost over and it's time to head west. It's not time to go home just yet.
PHL to PHX. I'm spending Memorial Day poolside with my guy and my 2 pibbles. This will also serve as my office for a couple of days before heading back to the Burque.
