Photo of the day: Back in 30 minutes

Time has always bothered me; I don’t really believe in it. It’s a human invention, a representation of reality. Now the passage of time, that’s something I can believe in. You can feel it. You can measure it. But it’s always, ALWAYS, relative to something else. Like when you’re in the train station waiting for [Keep Reading…]

Beard Papa claims to make the world’s best cream puffs, and they aren’t lying. Fortunately for the folks at New Work City, they have a location just around the corner. Unfortunately, it’s been “closed for maintenance” since November. I walked by recently and noticed a FedEx box labeled MAIL BOX taped to the outside of [Keep Reading…]

I get my hair cut at Bumble & bumble‘s downtown salon. Not only does Dante always give me a great cut, but Bb creates one of the most exceptional customer experiences of any service in my day-to-day life. They’re a high-end salon, but a key aspect of their brand is a playfulness that they inject [Keep Reading…]
