Secured my ticket to the 2019 Atlantic City Beer Fest and got to taste a few beers from local breweries at the same time. Also ooh'd and ahh'd over some gorgeous can art.
Josie Kelly's in Somers Point, NJ
There's no breakfast like an Irish breakfast (and no better pick-me-up than this salted caramel coffee with espresso vodka). Thank you, Josie Kelly’s Public House, for nailing Irish cuisine!!
No. 7311 in Ventnor, NJ
Having a remote job is amazing, but sometimes I get real lazy (especially now that it's cold out) and realize that the only time I've left the house all week is to go the gym. Making it a point to have a little change of scenery every once in a while — and treat myself to a good cup of coffee in the process.
Sunfish Pond Hike in Delaware Water Gap
Was super excited to hike the Water Gap for the first time and catch the trees changing, but the day before my hike was SO windy and I'm pretty sure it blew just about every last leaf off. Still got to enjoy Sunfish Pond and see some colors from above.
Honeygrow in Hoboken, NJ
Never got a chance to try Honeygrow when I lived in Philly, but made it to the Hoboken location over the weekend and if you love yourself you'll go now
Carlo's Bake Shop in Hoboken, NJ
Hung out with a few cake bosses at Carlo’s Bake Shop for some cake decorating! Obviously had to add a little Micki flare to it with the peppers
Ski Beach in Ventnor, NJ
I've been waiting f o r e v e r for a good sunset so I could test out my little DJI Spark and finally got my wish! And then the Spark decided it was the perfect time for a firmware upgrade… Still got a few shots in though, and only almost lost the drone once.
Ventnor got a Dunkin’! Still saltier than the ocean that they took away the Ventnor Heights Wawa but this will have to do (for now — don't think I've given up on getting Wawa back).
Josie Kelly's Public House in Somers Point, NJ
Went to Ireland in 2016 and when I walk into this Somers Point bar I forget that I ever left.
What's better than having a beer with your name on it at the end of a long day? Having a beer that literally has your name on it while listening to an audiobook in a warm bath at the end of a long day. Y'all know I had to make my way to Belmar to try the der Schicki Micki from Beach Haus. It can't be a coincidence that the can bears my name and everything about it (color, style, taste) is so me, right?
When your little cousin asks you to go trick-or-treating, you put on a damn costume and trick adults into giving you treats even though you're an adult yourself.
Mission Taqueria in Philadelphia, PA
Have I mentioned that I like margaritas?? Took an impromptu drive to Philly in search of a special necklace to replace one that I bought in Greece and lost in New Jersey. Didn't find the necklace but did fill my belly with tacos.
