As promised, I went back to The Cliff for better photographs. Unfortunately, I brought my monkeys children so I wasn’t able stay for the rosé, but I’m having one here (in my living room, next to my laundry). Big cheers to Eva & Gary. Here here. The Cliff is thrilled to announce their Grand Opening on […]

Hoboken Nights: Pizza and Ice Cream

I don’t like being embarrassed – so it follows that I don’t like taking kids anywhere to restaurants. Sometimes, though, after a long day, an easy night out is in order – even with the kids. First things first: Make it easy. If you’re not a wizard or if you have limited experience dining with […]
