    The Dreamery: An NYC Nap Hotel from Casper

    Many are the long summer days on which I’ve been stranded downtown or some other hectic locale away from my bed and thought to myself, “there should be a place where you can pay to to take a nap.” Obviously I’m not alone, and now the mattress peddlers at Casper have come up with just […]

  • National French Fry Day Means Free French Fries

    National French Fry Day Means Free French Fries

    I don’t really remember when every single day on the calendar seemed to have some sort of food as its official national designation, but it seems like every week brings some other national food day, and an accompanying opportunity for free food.

    Southwest Airlines Peanuts Discontinued Amid Allergy Scares

    Hey! I got to use the word “amid” in a headline, like a grownup. The excitement I feel over that will have to be my consolation over the fact that the next time I fly, I won’t be able to enjoy a complimentary bag of Southwest Airlines peanuts, as the company’s signature snack has been discontinued.

    ‘Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween’ Official Trailer (Video)

    I don’t have any kids, so for me the blockbuster success of 2015’s Goosebumps feature film — which seemed to be going for a cross between the mega popular young adult horror novel series and Jumanji – was one of those “wait, seriously?” type things we experience more and more of as we get older.
