Partying with the artsy elite

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.

In pursuit of useless information

Damn, it feels good to be a trivia geek

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.
