I grew up in Miami but have been in Boston for a decade. I came to New England mainly for its culture and proximity to other cool places like New York and Quebec. I have an awesome job that allows me to enjoy city life, so most nights I'm out at museums, cinemas, bars, and restaurants. But when I'm at home I usually cook, drink wine, and listen to records; with good company this can be more fun than any night out.
Movies = Manhattan, 8 1/2, Last Tango in Paris, Ace In The Hole, Network, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Black Narcissus, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, The Wild Bunch, Black Orpheus, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Venus, The American President, I Am Love, Days of Heaven.
TV = The occasional Colbert and plenty of sports, especially Washington Redskins football.
Food = Indian, Mexican, Cuban, Barbecue, Vietnamese. Scotch in winter, rum in summer, craft beer year-round.
Books = Narcissus & Goldmund, The Fountainhead, The Moon & Sixpence, and anything Alain de Botton writes.
I like neighborhood haunts with a local crowd and live music -- the kind of place where the owners say hi to you. If there's a line or a cover, I'll be at the dive next door.
