If everyone is thinking alike then someone isn’t thinking.

My top Lower East Side destination: Rockwood Music Hall. To me, this venue is one of New York’s hidden gems. Whenever I try to describe to a friend, I say that it is, “very New York-y” (the Y is pronounced as a long E). Now that I think about it, there’s something about me and intimitate environments—I do like to feel that I have more access to people, in general, so naturally the Music Hall is an awesome place for me. Everything from the sound, seating and decor is amazing and well worth the visit. Admission to the shows are free, and Blue Moons start at seven bucks.

And the performer on stage is a friend of a friend: Alecia Chakour—she’s really amazing and some may describe her as a mix between Amy Winehouse and Joss Stone. Her voice is amazing and her band is out of this world. She performed last night and rocked the place silly!

I attended The Kitchen NYC’s event with Chet Jet Tila to benefit victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Chef Jet is the executive chef at Wazuzu restaurant in Las Vegas. As a rising TV chef, he prepared the sushi appetizers himself, then showed us all how to cut a yellow tail fish and afterward, allowed attendees to come up and make sushi with him! It was an awesome experience, not to mention, my friend from WME introduced me to some really nice folks from CBS and People. P.S. The Kitchen NYC is an amazing venue to hold intimite gatherings, especially when food is involved!

"Law & Order: SVU," a.k.a. the best show on earth, taped a new episode at the border of Chelsea/Meatpacking District earlier this week. This photo was taken just outside the entrance to my office!

Mayor of Washington, D.C. along with city council members were arrested. The mayor may have earned points in the streets, but what about politically?
