A Scumbag’s Guide to Portland – Part 4

Yeah. With your dumb orange car.  Hey cats and kittens, it’s that time again! Happy belated Memorial Day. Hope you’re still making out with a soldier you met last night, and eating leftover BBQing burgers, cooked in the name of our brave civil war heroes. It’s that blissful time of year when day-drunk…

Getting Stood Up at a Taco Truck

In honor of the upcoming Valentine’s Day, let’s talk about love.  The happiness, the longing gazes, the tender moments shared.  And sometimes: the drama, the emotional rollercoaster ride, the letdowns.  Almost everyone has been in an intense relationship with someone who is Simply Not Good For Them, including myself.  Except,…

Last Day to Eat FREE Thai Curry at MoMA!

Admission into NYC’s MoMa is certainly pricey– at $25 general admission, you basically have to brave the horrendous crowds on the monthly free day– or dig up your student ID from ten years ago and try to pass as an 18 year old– to catch a break. Wouldn’t a FREE…

Celebrating Two Years in New York City: A Look Back at the Time I Got Punched on the Subway

FREE Badminton at Open House Gallery’s Indoor Park

Ah, there’s nothing I love more than a relaxing afternoon in the park.  Basking in the sun like a lizard on a rock, creepily cat-calling all of the cute dogs on walks (“Hey, you!  Check out that strut!  Ooh, I like that smile!”), and wearing my one pair of workout…

Broke-Ass Pop Culture: Thanksgiving Cliches

First of all, I hope you all had a super Thanksgiving. And if you’re waiting in the checkout line with a cart full of Black Friday doorbuster deals, you are crazy. For my family’s get together yesterday, I decided to make a dessert. I’m not the best cook in the…
