Lauren Does Broadway (Thrice!)

Lauren Does Broadway (Thrice!)

So this is my third time around with the Broadway posts, and since my last Broadway review, I’ve seen 3 more shows, 2 in the last week!. Again, none of which I paid for at full price! It is the only way to go! As an update, out of the 3 shows I reviewed last … Continue reading

OUR FIRST ANNIVERSARY!

OUR FIRST ANNIVERSARY!

A year ago today, my sweet friend Kerry dropped me off at the Indianapolis airport with some hugs and I was off to New York. I arrived completely turned around and completely exhausted. I can’t believe how much has changed since that day. Grant it, I’m still often turned around and almost always exhausted, but … Continue reading

Bike the Big Apple Tour

So my family has been visiting all week (more on that later), and on Sunday night, they had signed us all up for a bike ride… in Manhattan. When the Tennant family said that we were doing a 5-hour bike tour around New York, I was a little nervous. My outdoor adventure loving family was … Continue reading

On To The Next Adventure…

On To The Next Adventure…

New York is not about staying stagnant. New York is about chasing dreams. This sounds incredibly cliche and lame. But since moving to New York, it has been my dream to work here: Lincoln Center. The mecca for performance. A celebration of the arts in the middle of the city. Every time I walked onto … Continue reading

Outdoor Movie… ON A BOAT

Outdoor Movie… ON A BOAT

First, I apologize for the crappy photos. Pictures at dusk are not fun/easy to take. Last Friday I got to experience one of those “New York things” that I had been wanting to experience since I moved here- an outdoor movie. Outdoor movies around New York City are a HUGE thing. Parks, rooftops, parking lots, … Continue reading

The Perks of the Event Industry

The Perks of the Event Industry

Sometimes, being in events means you get to go to events. Especially in the summertime when everyone is dead slow and people want to generate some possible new events and clients to add to the calendar,  venues will host industry events. And that was just the case on Tuesday night when me and the team … Continue reading

PS1 Warm-Up!

PS1 Warm-Up!

This past Saturday, prior to being assaulted on the subway platform, I went to one of the coolest things I’ve seen New York offer thus far. The MOMA PS1 Warm-Up. Pretty much, it is a big outdoor party at MOMA’s PS1 in Long Island City, Queens where a variety of experimental bands and DJs perform … Continue reading

Lessons on Being Assaulted

Apologies for the jarring title but last night I got minorly assaulted. Minorly being the key word. But I learned some things from my first-hand experience that seem to be pretty straight forward tips for the cruddy situation. I was transferring trains around 9PM in Times Square. When going though the tunnel I noticed the … Continue reading
