I'll choose a Dive bar/Lounge over the club almost always. Love outdoor seating, especially on an empty nyc summer night. My current cocktail of choice is a Bloody Mary, doesn't matter what time it is. I like my martinis dirty. Live music is my favorite but I have a tendency to listen to the same song over and over if its just that good. Most of the music I love is the same stuff my parents grew up on: Dylan, Petty, Springsteen etc. I want to see the world, and believe there is so much to learn by experiencing unfamiliar cultures and places.
Most importantly, Family and friends are a top priority and I am really close with them. It is important to have a close circle of people surrounding you.
I like to think I haven't lost touch with my midwestern roots, despite living in and loving NYC.
