Pizza in Rome {Sforno}

Normally when we have pizza it's a Sunday night and Mark goes across the street to alle Carette and brings home a few takeout boxes of margherita and diavola that we eat while catching up with John Stewart's The Daily Show.

Food and Ghost Tour in Venice with Monica Cesarato

This past summer when I went to Venice on my art filled trip I left the rest of my family behind.  The entire time I was there I wished that they were there with me. I saw so many things that I knew they would love as much as I did.  The 55th Venice Biennale ends on the 24th of November. In spite of work and college application deadlines and a nationwide transportation strike, we hopped a fast train and headed north for a few days.


Wine Tasting in Rome {Rimessa Roscioli}

Wine Tasting in Rome  {Rimessa Roscioli}

I love a celebration. I love it even more if someone else does all the planning and organizing. A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be in on a fun surprise for a dear friend that included very little planning and organizing on my part and lots of wine and good food. 

Tucked into a side street around the corner from the well known Roscioli deli (a source for cheddar cheese in Rome) and restaurant is the Rimessa Roscioli. A hidden space of walls full of books and wine bottles and plenty of tables and chairs for a festive and informative wine tasting.


Shopping in Rome {Closet}

The other day I had a errand to run in the swanky neighborhood.  I love going over there and wandering into the Coppede, with it's fantastical architecture and some surprisingly intact street art.

I had planned a stop at Natalizi, where all I will say is that they have a glazed, cream filled doughnut that rivals a Krispy Kreme, or maybe a visit to La Taqueria for an authentic steak taco.  What I definitely did not have planned was shopping for designer clothes.
