Just back from a whirlwind weekend trip to Portland where I ate and drank my face off. I can't wait to go back (and hopefully find my face)
I love movies and have no problem going by myself. Plus that way I don't need to share my popcorn and Cherry Coke.
I'm looking for someone to travel with, someone to go wine tasting with, someone to stay home and watch Orphan Black with. As cheesy as it sounds, I'm looking for my better half.
I am funny, nice, and punctual
I'm also a bit of a 'foodie' (God I hate that term) and am usually up on all the new restaurants and bars in the city. Some of my new favorite restaurants include State Bird Provisions, Rich Table, Stones Throw, and Frances...favorite bars include 15 Romolo, the Buccaneer, Hi Lo Club, ABV and pretty much anywhere else with cool bartenders and a stool.
David Sedaris, Chuck Klosterman, Nick Hornby, Michael Lewis, Earnest Hemingway, John Steinbeck. My favorite book ever is either The Stranger or To Kill a Mockingbird. I read both the "Dragon Tattoo" trilogy and "Hunger Games" trilogy in record time. And while it's not really a book, I'm obsessed with Lucky Peach magazine.
The Big Lebowski, Once, Anchorman, Almost Famous, 500 Days of Summer, Lord of the Rings trilogy, 50/50, anything John Hughes, Run Lola Run, Amelie, and the movie that started my obsession with film, Star Wars!
I own a tv and am not afraid to use it. Sorry! But hey, my DVR makes my tv watching way more productive. Current favs are the Americans, Broad City, Better Call Saul.
I've been buying some of my favorite albums on vinyl as I love the bigger canvas for the artwork and the sound of records.
Some of my favorite bands:
Ryan Adams, Of Monsters and Men, The Head and the Heart, The National, CHVRCHES, M83, Phoenix, Radiohead, Lord Huron, Florence + the Machine, Saint Etienne, Local Natives, Spoon, Stars, Arcade Fire, Crowded House, Sufjan Stevens, Depeche Mode, the Naked and Famous, Travis, Portishead, the Beatles, to name a few...ok, that's more than a few but I told you up front that I'm a music nut!
Food: a nice steak, sushi, pizza, a great burger (ask me for my burger list) red wine. I also make a mean fish taco.
My new favorite pizza place in the city is Pizzahacker though Pizzeria Delfina will always be #1.
Red wine (preferably something picked up wine tasting in Healdsburg)
My turntable and record collection
Berlin Style Ping Pong (seriously, so much fun)
I guess there is no such thing as a typical Friday night for me!
