#WFH life hasn't been easy, so to find some light in getting to know our neighborhoods a bit more this year, we asked our team to share their favorite/iconic spots in their area and why they love it. Check out their picks!
 
@jlmend719 ’s Pick:
I love my rooftop because we get some of the most amazing sunsets overlooking Manhattan up there. During the past 7 months when we’ve all been isolated and working from home, my roof allows me to enjoy nature’s beauty, get some peace, social distance with neighbors, and look back fondly on the city I’ve called home for the past decade. 📸: @mattylevs
 
@williesln's Pick:
I love it because it speaks to the essentially random and quirky surprises you can stumble on in NYC - even on the sidewalk. #concretebrunette

@hannah_richman ’s Pick:
Astoria Park is without a doubt my favorite place in my neighborhood. It's definitely the place that's brought me the most peace during the pandemic. I still go often, but I went there almost every week in the summer to read, socially-distantly catch up with friends, do an outdoor yoga class, or just take in the insane views the Triborough Bridge, Hellgate Bride, and the NYC skyline.  
 
@noasarkk ’s Pick:
The Ramapo Reservation is one of my favorite places to go on hikes, walks, picnics and more. If not just for the scenic and picturesque landscape, there are always adorable dogs to pet as you walk along the trails. I would definitely recommend a visit!
 
@sera.lewis ’s Pick:
Buccleuch park is a great place to get outside. This is my favorite place to run since it makes New Brunswick feel more homie. In a place where people are very close together, this place makes you feel the openness of the small city.

Our team really misses entertaining, so in an effort to inspire some joy and creativity, we wanted to share what our Charcuterie dream boards would look like, whether it's to satisfy a savory or sweet tooth. We'd love to hear yours, too! See below for our team's picks.

@brookette1 ’s Pick:
I'm obsessed with all of the flavors on this board - the combination of healthy grilled proteins and veggies, combined with creamy avocado and fresh citrus makes my taste buds tingle. @weelicious

@hannah_richman ’s Pick:
I'm obsessed with this Halloween charcuterie board. I love to host gatherings for the holidays and set out seasonal snacks for my guests, and although I may not be able to do that for Halloween this year, I'd happily have this one all to myself :) It has all the basics I love in a charcuterie with a variety of meat, cheese, fruit and crackers, but the seasonal fall fruits, cute spider decorations, and pumpkins is such a fun and seasonal take on the traditional board.

@jlmend719 ’s Pick:
I love brunch, which is why I’m inspired by this breakfast themed “charcuterie” board. It incorporates pancakes, bacon and/or sausage links for meat lovers, fresh fruit like strawberries and raspberries, and toppings like Nutella, syrup and whipped cream, but really you can add any variety of breakfast items and be as creative as you want swapping in peanut butter for Nutella, bagels and cream cheese for pancakes and butter… it’s indulgent and makes a great centerpiece!

@noasarkk ’s Pick:
This game day board is what dreams are made of. I love a good football game (go, @nygiants !), but if I'm being honest, it's the atmosphere and food that really makes it fun for me. That's why I chose this board that's filled with all the comfort food that I crave during a game including wings, jalapeño poppers, mini hot dogs, and so much more!

@taylorh244 ’s Pick:
While I love cheese, I needed to find something that will satisfy my MAJOR sweet tooth! I feel this one is the perfect mix of sweet and salty. This would be the perfect board for a movie night in with friends, which is what my friends and I have been doing every weekend here at school because of the pandemic! @marist

Our President @brookette1, just returned from Charleston where she spent time with our client, James Beard Award-winning pitmaster, restaurateur and one of the stars of Netflix’s Chef’s Table, @PitmasterRodneyScott.  Below she shares a few highlights from her trip. 
 
Where did you visit in Charleston?
Where didn’t I visit? Charleston is a small city defined by its cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages, and southern charm. We spent a day with Rodney exploring historic neighborhoods, riding along the Charleston Harbor and looking at the pastel antebellum homes. We also visited Fort Sumter, which is where the first shots of the Civil War were fired.  After a day of touring we couldn’t wait to get to the main event…visiting Rodney Scott’s BBQ. Customers spilled out of the restaurant and the lines were down the street – there were also 20 cars waiting to place orders at the drive through. Rodney was swarmed with fans as he ushered us through the side door into the Pit, which was absolutely incredible. 
 
We tried just about everything on the menu and personal favs included his slow-smoked pulled pork and spareribs covered in his signature spice rub & sauce, along with his collard greens and baked beans. Best of all, we brought tons of leftovers to our hotel and had the best midnight snack! 
 
Do you have a favorite memory from the trip?
Hands down the best memory was eating Rodney’s BBQ WITH Rodney on the back of his tailgate across from his restaurant.   When Rodney says, “Every Day is a Good Day,” he means it.  He is living his dream!
 
What were the most delicious things you ate?
Rodney’s pulled pork AND a fried catfish sandwich at Leons.
 
What was it like traveling during this time?
Charleston was much busier than I expected, so we were hypersensitive to those who were not wearing masks and/or social distancing. However, the streets were bustling, there was great energy and people were actively shopping and eating indoors. It was an incredible change of scenery and we had a blast!

Last weekend our Senior Publicist, Jen (@jlmend719), had the opportunity to travel to the Berkshires and is excited to share details about her experience traveling during this time, her favorite meal and experience, and more! 🍁

Where did you go? Where did you stay?
My boyfriend @mattylevs and I stayed in Egremont at the Egremont Village Inn, a cute B&B. Part of the property was the Egremont Barn, which has live, outdoor music each night. We also visited cute shops and restaurants in Great Barrington, Lenox and Sheffield.

How was it traveling during this time?
It was beautiful for starters!
The foliage in the Berkshires is so stunning this time of year, and everyone was safe following safety protocols at various locations, or just walking around town.

What was your favorite meal?
I LOVED the Bistro Box! It looks like a very unassuming burger shack on the side of the road, but the food is incredible, including their breakfast burrito because I can’t turn down a good breakfast burrito… and they have picnic tables and seating with a big lawn and mountains so it was a treat being able to squeeze in fresh air and outdoor dining.

What was your favorite experience?
For some reason, I made a dinner reservation outside at The Stagecoach Tavern… but it was 45 degrees, OOPS! The food was excellent, so we made the best of it, sitting under a heat lamp and next to a fire, and making friends with the table next to us from a distance. But as chilly as it was, when are you ever throwing wood into your own fire in Manhattan so that was cool!

Independent restaurants were the first to close to keep our communities safe, and they'll likely be the last to open. They need your help to survive this crisis and the challenging months ahead. Here are three ways you can take action to #SaveRestaurants right now. Check out our bio to find more ways to take action.

“I grew up in NY and have worked in NYC my whole life. I'll never forget the morning of 9/11. It was Max's first day of preschool - Marc and I brought him to school that morning so we didn't go to work early as usual. After drop off as we waited for the train from NJ to NYC we heard the news and all public transit was suspended. At the very same time my sister in law, Sharon was on a plane flying from NJ to CA. My mom, who was battling late stage brain cancer was in the city (with my dad) - in addition to being terrified about the massive loss of life, worrying about a terrorist being on Sharon's flight and not knowing what was happening next, I was extremely worried about my mom.

Thank you to all the heroes who ran towards the madness to save lives and to those who, many years later (and now) are sick as a result. My heart goes out to you and to all of the families who lost loved ones. I cherish my family, friends and colleagues. Today is an important reminder to pause and be grateful. #neverforget #neverforget911” #repost @brookette1
