Hair of the Dog That You Bit

I’ve been fortunate enough to have some great food experiences around the country and around the world. I’ve had crepes from a cart across from Notre Dame in Paris.

15 Regrettable Circumstances That Might Be More Depressing Than Game of Thrones

The Long Awkward St. Patrick’s Day Review

LAP Interviews ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Moviegoers

Since the release of Fifty Shades of Grey over Valentine’s Day weekend, everyone’s been talking (at a volume low enough so that no one can actually hear them) about this cinematic interpretation of E.L.
