Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City

KOBRICK COFFEE CO., 24 Ninth Avenue (between West 13th and West 14th Street), Meatpacking DistrictI love coffee, but I can only drink so much before it manages to keep me up all night. I also love cocktails, but I can only drink so many before I completely pass out. The solution?? Coffee cocktails!!!

I’m only half kidding as I don’t want my heart to explode, but that might have been thinking at Kobrick Coffee Co.

Last year, the almost century-old coffee roaster and wholesaler opened up a bar and café in the heart of the fashionable Meatpacking District. The idea is that during the day, coffee reigns supreme and you can get a selection of beans brewed many different ways. But also, this is a full-on cocktail bar. And get this: an entire page of the cocktail menu is dedicated to coffee cocktails.

Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. In Locals Know, I explore a new city through the tours of Urban Adventures.

Last year, I helped design a tour for Urban Adventures that has been a huge success (if I do say so myself). It involves cocktails, so how could it be bad?

I lead the tour pretty regularly but we have about three other guides that also do a great job with it. So on the latest episode of Locals Know, I experience the New York Craft Cocktail tour from a brand new perspective thanks to Josh. Watch the video below to get a sense of the tour and watch us discover hidden bars, new speakeasies, and drink a whole lots of well-crafted cocktails.

Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. In Locals Know, I explore a new city through the tours of Urban Adventures.

I just returned from an amazing trip to Peru. And while there, I had to meet up with the local branch of the tour company I work for, Urban Adventures.

Just like here in New York, the guides at Urban Adventures in the capital of Lima get you away from the touristy areas and into a local neighborhood. On the Lima Discovery Tour, you are able to have one-of-a-kind experiences like chatting with locals, exploring the vibrant markets, and sipping an iconic pisco sour in the hotel that created it.

Get a flavor of the tour in the video below and learn more about it here. Anyone planning a trip to Peru?

Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. NY Craft Cocktail Tour explores the craft cocktail culture of New York from local distilleries to specialty spirit shops to amazing cocktail bars and speakeasies. 

After a visit to Brooklyn Brewery, the next natural step is to walk a few blocks and visit New York Distilling Company. Here they give free tours of their facility, which has been producing different gins, rye, and liqueurs since 2011. It’s a beautiful space and even more exciting is that their bar The Shanty pours some mean cocktails. You can learn more about them and cocktail culture on our Craft Cocktail Tour.

SADLY, MAYAHUEL IS NOW CLOSED.

MAYAHUEL, 304 East 6th Street (between First and Second Avenue), East Village

Tonight’s the night that everybody goes out drinking. Or stays in drinking. But the point is, everybody is drinking. Some call New Year’s Eve “Amateur Night.” I think it’s a good excuse to gain a greater appreciate for some of the best cocktail bars in town.

Village Voice's HOLIDAY SPIRITS

Yes, it is turkey day and I probably should have found some interesting Thanksgiving related dish to write about today. Something like this or this. But last week I had the pleasure to attend Holiday Spirits and I wanted to write about it before next Thanksgiving. Also, the spirit I chose will easily fit in on the Thanksgiving dinner table.
