Live Hipsters Doing Live Things

17 Jul

After hearing about the up and coming Nolita neighborhood from an undisclosed hipster source, we decided to explore the downtown scene ourselves. One too many subway transfers later, and after a debacle in which water gushed from the ceiling of the subway car onto Alyssa, we made it to Nolita. We were starving by the time we ascended to street level but could not find a low-key place to eat. First complaint of Nolita: not enough dining options. We settled on sushi from a place so city chic it doesn’t even have a name (some like to call it Dean and Deluca—Felicity and Ben’s place of work in the previously endorsed WB hit Felicity). Although a warning to fellow Diet Coke addicts: Dean and Deluca only sells Pepsi products. If we wanted Pepsi, we would’ve stayed at Hamilton this summer solely for its vending amenities.

We also stopped by a Mr. Softee truck. Like chocolate dipped ice cream cones, dislike the limited soft-serve flavor options. How can they not sell chocolate-vanilla swirl? Offensive. O.O.N.L.Y.C. Our opinion, not like you care.

To conclude, we found ourselves unimpressed with the 4-block radius surrounded by SoHo and Little Italy.

Is anyone else extremely impressed with Diet Coke’s new ad campaign? “Another word for thirst is ambition,” or this one we saw in Nolita. Guess we’re the target consumers because we stopped at two vendors for dcokes in the course of the afternoon.

Can't talk, hanging out with Diet Coke.

Members of our loyal blogging community recently informed us of the dwelling locations of two larger-than-life celebrities and NYC residents. One of them is a twin who starred in Billboard Dad and the other one is a mom married to Ferris Bueller. Stay tuned for when we stake out their properties next week and observe them in their natural habitats.

Daily Picks:

  • Song: Best Thing I Never Had by Beyonce. Music video features real live footage of B at prom!!!
  • TV Show: Always felt that Will and Grace was overshadowed by Friends and Frasier.
  • Nail polish: Smooth Sailing and Looking For Love by Essie
  • Movie: Center Stage changed our lives. Also, does anyone else think that Stick It had the potential to do for gymnastics what Bring It On did for cheerleading…?

We are looking to join/start a support group for people torn up over J.Lo and Marc Anthony’s break up. Their marriage did great things for the world of Latin pop. See below. RIP.

    I second Cara’s comment. Also, I’m sad that you didn’t enjoy your trip to nolita because I had the best time when I went. There is a great a bakery that serves sugar free food that actually tasted good.

    I was in the Nolita hood on Friday and had a similar “meh” reaction. Not special enough to warrant its own name. Also, misread celeb sighting as the actual dad from Billboard Dad. Is it sad that I was more excited when I thought it was him vs. an Olsen?

      lauren, im responding to your comment in response to the blogging advice you gave via roshan. anyway, no its not sad re: billboard dad because if i recall correctly, he was quite the silver fox. also, it’s worth pointing out that i have seen the dad from two of a kind at least once strolling down columbus
