New Brooklyn Pizza Shop From Lucali’s Mark Iacono Opening Next Week

Pizza Brooklyn’s pizza shop Lucali ranks at the top of the best pizzerias in America on just about every list each year.

The shop is pretty small and you can’t just stop by for a slice. Expect hours long waits to get one of their pies and delicious calzones (which I think are even better). Continue reading New Brooklyn Pizza Shop From Lucali’s Mark Iacono Opening Next Week

Visiting NYC’s The Hole To See Misaki Kawai’s Moko Moko Doki Doki

The exhibition from Misaki Kawai, called Moko Moko Doki Doki didn’t only have a fun name, the art itself looked really bizarre, unique and interesting! I also felt that it would appeal to not only Kim and I, but also to our kids, 9 year-old Lucas and 4 year-old Theo.

I had planned to visit the exhibition before going for dinner at a place close by but I totally forgot about it. However, as luck would have it, we happened to walk past The Hole on the way to Momofuku Ko. I guess luck was on our side… Continue reading Visiting NYC’s The Hole To See Misaki Kawai’s Moko Moko Doki Doki
