I wanna make you laugh. I wanna make you eat. I don't wanna make you laugh while you eat, though--that's dangerous.
I've created a show that combines my love of food and funny. It's called The Food Funny. It's looking for a new home at the moment.
I also run a Food Tour Company in the wonderful city that I call my hometown, New York--perhaps you've heard of it. A food tour is where you learn about cool stuff while you eat. Often on your feet.
When I'm not on stage or in the streets, I write for myself and sometimes for others, like Damascus Bakery, I love the Upper West Side.com. I am happy to provide specific samples upon request. On Comedywire, Pitch and a #Binder
Also, sometimes I do the acting thing.
Unlike the neighborhoods of Flushing, Queens and Sunset Park, Brooklyn, which represent a more varied cuisine of Chinese Food given the heritage of their residents for the last 20-30 years, the Upper West Side had a much more predictable style of Chinese dining options until recently.
When I was initially asked to write about the best burgers on the Upper West Side, I was pretty sure I had my list mostly locked down with maybe one spot I was still debating. And then JG Melon closed and I had ANOTHER spot to fill.
No other city in the world does the holidays like New York! New York City has always had a love affair with the holidays. After all, it was a group of immigrant construction workers who began the tradition of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree on what was merely rubble, so they could feel connected to the homes they left behind.
Hi, my name is Adrienne Cooper, and I am a New York City Slice Snob. Phew. That feels good to get off my chest! Look, everyone knows that New Yorkers are very particular about their hometown eats. Whether we're discussing bagels, hot dogs, falafel, or pizza, it's gonna get heated very quickly.
The great thing about brunch is that it works for nearly any kind of crowd-even those with kids. While they marvel over a pile of pancakes, parents can start knocking back bloody marys and mimosas without any judgment, as early as 11am!
As a self-described Funny Female Foodtreprenuer, I'm always appreciative of my fellow badass broads who take on the daily challenges involved with running a business. Especially in an industry that's been so dominated (and frequently sullied) by men for the last several centuries-I guess that's most industries.
I know that my site may be a little confusing at the moment, but I promise I'm working on it! In the meantime, please enjoy this abbreviated sum up on my culinary experience in Georgia (The Republic of) as I presented it to the Guides Association of New York City .
While the Upper West Side still has to battle this long-standing reputation for less-than-travel-worthy eateries, we've always had a few stellar stand-outs that have made the cut in some of the top NYC foodie publications. But, those of us that live and work in the area know that there are plenty of hidden gems to be enjoyed.
Now that fall is here-or at least that's what the calendar says-you're very likely running around a lot more than you were during the leisurely summer.
One of the biggest attractions for all who live, work, or just generally enjoy the Upper West Side is the number of quality parks that we have access to.
While most of us Native UWSers have seen our favorite local haunts shutter over the years (RIP Big Nicks), there are still a few that remain. Here's my list of favorites from those who've been a fabric of our community longer than I have.
My favorited series highlights the restaurants, stalls, markets, and any other kinds of food purveyors that make the top of my list for the best of what they offer in this city. Bo's Bagels was a welcome addition to the Harlem Bagel Desert, I've lived in for 10 years, and they do a damn fine job.

I wrote this for a tour app company I have done some work for, where I write script narrations for different themed tours through New York City. I wrote an LGTBQIA+ themed tour for them over the summer that begins on 14th Street and ends on Christopher.

posted by Pamela Morgan Have I told you that I'm taking ballroom dancing? I adore it. It's my escape for a few hours a week. I was a former jazz dancer; but ballroom dance is like learning a new language. It's challenging but exhilarating.
Revised the copy with branding guidelines for their newest product line at the time.

Dana Dow: FLIP FLOP
It's been over a week since the first expose about the most recent slew of Catholic Priests (specifically in Pennsylvania - I haven't stayed up to date with any others that may have come out around the world since then, I'm sure there has been at least another) was brought to light by the #MeToo Media.
We sure are living in a crazy world climate right now! Every day it seems a new man of power is taken down by the sins of their genitals, mouths, and hands. Or, as some would rather say, their accusers. Plus our Assaulter in Chief could bring us to a nuclear war with North Korea any day now!

The monthly show that gets comedians to chef, and chefs to comedy. Check it out, live on stage! You can be the judge!
I wrote the first script for the first show, Mo Rocca was host.
On Monday, March 4th, 2019, the Guides Association of New York City will host their 5th Annual GANYC Apple Awards at the SVA Theatre on West 23rd Street. The tagline for the event is "Those who know New York best, honor the best of New York."
Whether you're planning something huge, like a wedding or a gala, a private dinner party in your own home, or something in between the two, like a progressively themed dinner for about 60 people a la our very own Elev8'd Eats Dinner, you have to put in some effort to pull out a success.
