From cock to mock

Catania is the place to be when you’re suddenly sober

Partying with the artsy elite

The Foodie Soirée reminded me why I love living rooms

By Alex Zaragoza
Sitting on the hardwood floor of a total stranger's house and watching a performance in full swing just three feet away is not totally new to me. I've spent many nights sitting cross-legged on dingy-carpeted floors of dilapidated houses that had earned nicknames like The Sandwich House or The Suicide House.

In pursuit of useless information

Damn, it feels good to be a trivia geek

By Alex Zaragoza
The pursuit of stockpiling completely useless information is an art. Don't let anyone tell you different. Like any muscle that takes years of hard training and meticulous cultivation to be in top shape, the nerd muscle requires that same serial-killer-esque attention to detail.

No, I didn’t drop my smile

Turning the tables on the catcallers

By Alex Zaragoza
Dear catcallers of the world! No, I didn't drop my smile. No, I won't show you my tits. And while, yes, I may look fine as hell in my dress, I don't need you to tell me from your moving vehicle.
