Wolf and Warrior Brewing located right off Mamaroneck Ave near the WP bar scene. Nice spacious location with plenty of seating and games to keep you entertained. (I recently became obsessed with Jenga)
Staff was super friendly and took the time to talk to us about their beer and their new location.
They were out of their cider at that time which I was a lil bummed about. They will be getting more beers on tap in the near future.
All beer is brewed on premises.
They also serve food for you to munch on.
They serve farm to table food. No wait staff so you order at the bar.
They do flights were you choose 5 beers to try. My favorite was the Patagonia-Argentinian Blonde Ale (I’m a fan of blonde’s).

The Dream Machine is an interactive experience only open until July 29th in Williamsburg. Tickets are $38. You spend about 45 minutes or so wandering from room to room taking pictures and having a ball (literally! There’s a ball pit) in this interactive instagamable playground. Rooms are inspired by actual dreams. But, have you ever dreamed of eating cotton candy in a laundry mat I kno I haven’t. However, this place is what instagram stories are made of. Bring someone patient enough to take pictures. Staff is very friendly and gave us as much time as we needed in each room.placeholder://placeholder://
After flooding the Instagram feed with my spa day pics I've had tons of people asking me about this new Spa that opened up in Edgewater, NJ.It was my birthday week so I decided to treat myself to a SpaDay
It's the first exit after crossing the George Washington Bridge. I made a big mistake in missing that exit!
You pull up to the place and they take your car and valet it..for free. A day pass to the spa on weekdays is $65 on the weekends it's $75. It has went up in price..I'm assuming due to popularity. I went on a Wednesday with my girlfriend. There wasn't much of a line and we quickly got in.
No outdoor food or drinks are permitted.
When you first enter u are given a locker to put your shoes in. No shoes are permitted inside. Outside only flipflops are permitted.
Then you get in the elevator and proceed to the real locker room where you get your robe (free) and another bigger locker to keep all your stuff. They have showers and changing rooms. I threw my bathing suit and robe on and explored the grounds..
It was a gorgeous day so we spent most of the time outside in the baths. There was a silk bath and a foot massage path to walk thru. Along with hot tubs, saunas and a infiniti pool with views to die for.
They have other services to purchase such as massages, facials and the typical Spa offerings. I did not partake this time… But next time I def will.
There is also a children's area for kids but there weren't any that day. You can bring children and I'm not sure how I really feel about that…
They have a water slide but it was closed that day. Total Bummer.
We had lunch in a cute lil dining area. There was a small selection on the menu. We ordered Burrata and a salad along with tea. No Alcohol is served or permitted. They also have a food court that serves Asian food, ice cream and burgers. They also have a smoothie bar.
Overall it was a fabulous day. The service was ahhmazing. Everyone was super friendly and helpful.
I def enjoyed this place and will be back before the cold weather hits so I can take a trip down that slide!
All these opinions are my own. I do not get paid to write this.

I recently met a verrry cool person and she put me on to SoFarSounds. She told me she signed up for tickets to a secret music show in a secret garden in NYC. It Sounded Dope to me ..so I told her I was down.
She ended up getting two tickets and I'm very glad she did..
It was a gorgeous summer day in July and we got cool seats sitting on a wooden tree bench in a garden of a Church. The show was BYOB and we came prepared with two bottles of Ros'e. Lush Life.
There was three performers and they were all amazing.
Silvina Moreno from Argentina who sang in both Spanish and English and had a funky lil instrument that she played.
Adam Ahuja was the second performer who played the keyboard and crooned so beautifully that he ended up on my IG story with heart eyes emoji's. How old am I again ?! Move over Justin Timberlake…He used audience participation to create a song that day which I thought was pretty Ahhmazing.
The last performer was Madison Mcferrin who sang very soulfully and had the whole audience nodding and swaying to her vibe.
After leaving this mini concert I wanted to buy all of their CD's and follow them all on Spotify.
Wanna check this out and try to get lucky and get tickets to these secret concerts check out SofarSound. They are all over the city and Brooklyn. FYI They do not tell you the exact location or details unless you get tickets to attend.
I like bike 🚴 riding and I like jamming out to music. 🎶 Here, you can do both and get a kick ass workout in 45 minutes.My job was offering free classes a few months ago and I decided to take them up on it. I recently tried out SoulCycle and loved it. However, the price was pretty hefty and I couldn’t swing it.
So, off I went to check out FlyWheel located in Scarsdale. It’s in very close proximity to home and work. I downloaded the app and created an account with them. I reserved my class and picked my bike out. And.. I loved it.
You can put your shoe size in your profile and your cycling shoes are ready for you in a cubby with your bike number. Free shoes!! How about that. Soulcycle makes you rent their shoes at $3 a pop.
You can check in with one of the girls who are super friendly or you can check in via Laptop.
There are free lockers where you can toss your belongings in. Along with showers and changing areas.
There is also free water for you to fill up your bottles.
There’s a map where you can find your bike and you head into the studio. There are people there to help the newbies out. The bike seat should be at hip length and the distance from seat to handles should be by length from elbow to hand. I still have problems and people help me.. Those bikes can be tricky.
The instructor comes in ..dims the light and pumps up the music..
They tell you where your torque(level of resistance) and RPM should be. When I went to SoulCycle they did not do this. This makes the class much more difficult.
Is this an intense workout. I think so. I always want to puke when I leave. But that’s usually how I feel after any intense workout. Once that passes I feel incredible like I can take over the 🌎 world.

Fabulous Rooftops with Stunning Views.. Are you going to pay $16+ for a cocktail.. YES! Is it better to go Sun-Thursday YES! Is a tourist going to photobomb your pic…Probably.. I still think gorgeous NYC weather calls for a Rooftop Bar…
That View Tho…
Press Lounge : This Rooftop Bar has Gorgeous Panoramic Views of NYC. Located atop Ink48 Hotel. Delicious cosmos and friendly service. No Guest lists and No Cover Charges Ever.
Mr. Purple : Rooftop Bar located on the 15th floor of Hotel Indigo on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Try the Mr. Purple cocktail (casamigos reposado tequila, cranberry liqueur, allspice dram, apple, lemon. served punch style).Yum!
230 Fifth Rooftop : Rooftop Lounge located at 230 fifth Ave in Manhattan, NY. It’s NY’s largest rooftop garden open to the sky. Open year long 7 days a week.
AZUL on the Rooftop- Hotel Hugo – Cuban Vibe in SOHO with gorgeous views of Lower Manhattan. Live Cuban Music on Sundays starting at 8pm. My drank was the Sandia Fresca made with Tito’s Vodka, Watermelon juice, Cucumber Puree, and Organic Honey. Alot less pretentious than the other rooftops in Manhattan.
Photo booth’s are a thing of the past. Let’s kick our selfie game up a notch. The new trending thing recently are Video Booth’s (GIF)..so what’s better than taking your own 5-6 second mini video clip when you are out partying in the city.. You can easily type in your email address for you to have and share.
I first spotted the video booth when I was out to dinner this February at Vandal NYC. It is located in the bar lounge area. We found it after exploring the new space . The background is a perfect setting filled with graffiti covered walls.
Vandal , 199 Bowery New York, NY 10002
Then I saw it again in Beauty and Essex’s Pawn shop. This background has guitars hanging on the walls. Click for my movie clips. Me and my friends always get a kick out of it. You will get some people in the background wanting to photobomb you.
Beauty & Essex, 146 Essex St New York, NY 10002
I hear Catch in the Meatpacking district has a video booth on their rooftop too! I have yet to check Catch out but it’s def on my summer to do list!
Catch, 199 9th ave New York, NY 10014
I’m all about it! I hope to see more restaurants/bars using this feature! It’s all about having fun and being silly with your friends. And you get to have a lil memory of your night.
Looking to get away to the Italian Coast without leaving NYC? Look no further than the beachy Sabbia (means sand in English) located in Eataly. Follow the Parasols to the retractable rooftop bar/restaurant that is transformed to resemble the Mediterranean and Atlantic coast. This is a pop up restaurant around until October where Gelato carts, an oyster bar, and retractable roof set the mood in this upper scale eatery. Extensive beer, wine, and cocktail list. I went with a Rose Wine Spritzer along with Formaggi, you can choose 3 for $13 or 5 for $16 served with an apricot mostarda (sort of like a marmalade). Many dishes to choose from ..Seafood, Meat, and Vegetarian options all available. We started with The Gambaretti alla Bagnara seared shrimp, oregano, parsley, garlic, and lemon. I ordered the Tagliata DiManzo which was a grilled Wagyu bohemian steak with Arugula and Parmigiano Reggiano. My date ordered the Polpa all Griglia, grilled octopus with cannellini beans! After your meal you can shop in Eataly’s market. They conveniently are on Opentable for online reservations.
