Mr NYC Rubs Some Shoulders

I wasn't able to blog yesterday because I was hanging out with ... other bloggers! This was my first time meeting my fellow NYC bloggers and I had a great time. The event was organized by Alejandra (of the food blog Always Order Dessert) at the bar Stout near Penn Station and she was a lovely host.

Among some of the bloggers I drank and chatted with:
  • The spirited creator of Debonair Debacles, a personal blog that's remarkably insightful and well-done. She talks about everything on here: herself, politics, popular culture, food, books, you name it. She told me she gets over 200 hits a day (Mr NYC is just a wee bit jealous) and you can see how she's earned it -- it's simply a delightful blog. Check it out!
  • A lady who calls herself Madam Breakfast -- yes, a blog devoted to the first and most important meal of the day. Breakfast Lab is a very informative blog (about guess what) and has lots of great advice about what constitutes a healthy breakfast. I can honestly say I've never seen anything quite like it. Definitely worth a look.
  • Finally, someone with not one, not two, but three advice blogs, one of them on They are: SelfHelpMe, Stephanerd, and the Modern Materialist. Very smart blogs, and very funny
So all in all, I consider my first blogger meet-up a success. I can't wait for the next one!


  1. Awesome meeting you last night, and thanks for sending some link love my way. I'll have to return the favor when I finally get the chance to update on the morrow. Blogger bonding is fun!

  2. Thanks for mentioning me, Mr. NYC. Your blog is making the thinking gnomes in my head work extra hard today. So here's a question from them to you: What would be the ultimate NYC breakfast? Any ideas?

  3. Fun! I can't wait to move to NYC and meet more bloggers! :) (Including yourself!)

  4. Ella - I'd have to say a bagel with lox and cream cheese is the ultimate NYC breakfast - although that may be a little cliche. Anything that comes from a deli really.

  5. Stephanerd - can't wait to see what you write!

  6. Thank you for the great write-up. I will post my take on the event along with a link to yours as well!


Please keep it civil, intelligent, and expletive-free. Otherwise, opine away.
