This past week's A List Apart brings us 10 Tips on Writing the Living Web
. A must read for anyone who writes for the web.
How quickly a week can go by... I just got back from an extended weekend in Manhattan's Upper West side. We set up camp at the Hudson Hotel
on 58th and 9th (swankalicious!) and spent a good portion of the weekend wandering around the Upper West side, Soho, and Greenwich Village shopping a bit here, cafe'ing a bit there.
On Friday, we started of the evening with a fine Italian meal at Baldoria
on 49th and 8th. While there's no doubting that there is better Italian in the city, the ambience at Baldoria was timely and the food delicious. We caught the musical Urinetown
immediately after dinner. We were all very pleasantly surprised at how well done and entertaining it was. Don't let the sketchy plotline turn you away - it's dark comedy mixed with satire at it's best.
Saturday night led us to Son Cubano
in the Meatpacking District/West Village for cuban tapas. While known for making the best Mojito
in the city, the live Cuban music and tasty tapas did not disappoint.
I could go on and on, but I'll save it for when we go back in the winter. Let me know what you think if you try (or have tried) any of the points of interest above.
