Movies: I tend to enjoy most movies I see in the theater even if they are exceedingly bad. Popcorn, soda, candy, and a movie is always a good time.
Music: Everything. My taste runs from Kid Cudi to Mumford and Sons to Bon Jovi to Pat Green. It's great to see live music at bars and other understated venues--talent is everywhere.
Food: I enjoy trying new restaurants and cooking new things. Most recently I made a hearts of palm ceviche and sriracha brussel sprouts. My favorite restaurants include a legendary mom & pop Italian place in DC, a ramenya in the East Village and a friendly little sushi spot down the block from my old apartment in Dupont Circle. I'm looking forward to finding some new favorites in Boston...

I'm curious to find out if this will be an interesting way to meet someone; if I have the... literary, I suppose... charm when there is no possibility to physically express myself (quite the challenge for us Italians). It will also be fascinating to find out if the myriad filtering tools available online will help or hinder my ability to find someone that genuinely catches my attention (i.e., does what I think I want get in the way of what I really want).
