How to Lose a Girl in 10 Days...

Wednesday, February 11, 2009
Easy, just take her to White Castle on Valentine's Day!


A friend recently asked me for inexpensive ways to celebrate with her beau this upcoming weekend and after some research I gave her very personal and unique ideas that are sure to make their day special way outside of flowers, candy and the cliche stroll in Central Park.


Afterwards I continued my search for unconventional ways to shower the one you love with...um, love. Anyways, I came across some good, some bad and some just down-right nutty that I'd like to share with you. Below please find a list of cheap (or even free!) Valentine's Day Events for all of my Recessionistas:


1) White Castle- Did you now that at select locations, White Castle is offering sit-down, waitered service complete with candle-light, red table clothes and a special couples menu. Yes, crazy I know! But it would definitely make for a great "How I met your mother" story...NOT! Strangely enough, reservations are going fast in NYC, so click HERE to make yours today.

2) The PIT Dating Game @ the Peoples Improv Theatre- Ever wonder about what kind of people go on those crazy dating shows in search of love? Well, wonder no more because at the Peoples Improv Theatre, three singles will actually take the stage armed with outrageous questions to chose their Valentine's Day match. For only $12, you can be there live watching all the magic unfold. Past "winners" have gone on to get married, one couple has a baby and another is expecting. Go check out where that little naked baby points his arrow again this year...Click Here for tickets.

3) He's Just Not That Into You- So I haven't seen this movie yet but I heard it's pretty darn good whether you're single, on a first date or out with your other half. Starring a ridiculous surplus of Hollywood eye-candy from Scarlette Johanson to Ben Affleck, this film is sure to start a couple of great debates about that cat-and-mouse-game we call dating. About $9 and playing at a theater near you!

Grammy Whistles & Whammys

Monday, February 9, 2009



I can't help but read up on all the post-Grammy gossip trades from Media Take Out and Yahoo's OMG! to PR Guru Alyson Campbell's blog. Since the Grammy Awards happens to be one of music's most-watched events, I found it fitting to put my two-cents in here at Chrissy and the City.


What I took away from the 2009 Grammys

There was cougar drool for the Brothers Jonas, Carrie Underwood's gorgeous legs giving Mariah a run for her money, M.I.A. depriving every stay-at-home mom the right to complain and a pseudo-reunion of The Four Tops (minus 3 original members, go figure!)...but for me personally, nothing was more notable than Estelle and Kanye's performance of "American Boy".


Those who follow my Facebook updates will note that around 10:30pm last night I declared the "Afro-Mullet" a big mistake! A good friend of mine, Dela Yador, went on to declare it a "Frullet." Ha! While I am truly sympathetic to Mr. West's recent tough times (as revealed through a hauntingly melancholy yet genius 4th album "808s & Heartbreak"), I'm sorry buddy- absolutely nothing warrants social acceptance of the "Frullet"…thanks again Dela!

Luckily, Estelle's whimsical platinum sheath dress, flawless make-up and brilliantly-controlled live vocals saved the performance from Kanye's "Mr. Roboto" dance moves and socially-suicidal hair disaster. I guess it's true what they say "outward expression is a reflection of one's inner self."

On an positive note, I very much enjoyed the speech recognizing President Barack Obama as a 2-time Grammy winner for the voice recording of his book, "Dreams From My Father," which took 15 hours to record. What great publicity for both the Grammy Awards and our very progressive and relatable leader.

So far, the Grammy Awards, with its 51 years of show-stopping glory, takes it's place on Chrissy and the City's Top Events of 2009, snuggly behind the 56th Presidential Inauguration. Not a bad place to be, eh?
