1.          Duo Lingo- I majored in French in college and studied abroad in France and sad to say, my French is not as good as it once was. So, I have been trying to practice every day, even for 5 minutes on Duo Lingo! I really like their podcasts on the app! It’s great practice and fun to listen to while you are getting ready or in the car.

2.          Brass Monkey- A 3 story bar + rooftop in Meatpacking! My friends and I rarely venture out of the East Village to party, because anything outside of the East Village is too fancy and/or expensive. But we decided to venture outside of our comfort zones and meet some friends at this bar. It’s huge and really nice. Unfortunately, there is a $10 cover fee at the door if you show up after 10:30pm, and the bouncers are kind of jerks, but other than that, there was good music, and good vibes.

3.          IOS 16- I updated my iPhone the other day and am loving the new customization feature for the Lock Screen. I love that we can finally change the color and font of the time and date.

4.          Peloton App- I have started running to train for my upcoming 5 mile Turkey trot and I’m really enjoying using the outdoor runs and the treadmill runs (especially with Jon!). As always, I love all the cycling classes (my preference for cardio) but the barre classes with Hannah are also great!

5.          Fun Music Fridays at Le Poisson Rouge NYC- I found out about this event via Instagram and I was skeptical, but it was SO much fun! Live music and dancing for $12! The music was AMAZING! All the best covers from the 90s and 2000s. I have never had so much fun dancing in NYC. I cannot stop raving about this event. This Friday (while you are reading this) is the LAST night for live music and dancing for $12 so I would highly recommend, and who knows, I may be there again! The venue was also a good size and there weren’t too many people.
