I've had my fair share of great stories from living in nyc, once ran 26.2 miles and climbed Mt Fuji in Japan (not in the same day). I'm a loyal fan of Danny Meyer's restaurants, a big fan of tea and the Brooklyn Brewery.
movies - back to the future (first was the best, but love all 3), goonies, rounders, lost in translation, something about mary, garden state
food - mostly anything, but I have a special affinity towards hot sauce
tv - how I met your mother, southpark (best social commentary on tv) and 60 minutes (don't judge)
Ess-a-bagel (but I guess I could settle for Murrays or Tal)
franks red hot sauce
