Soo, it’s basically April. I don’t how the time blurred so quickly between dismantling my Christmas tree and prematurely sending home my winter coats, but spring is (finally) coming! My week is going to be full of a preemptive closet-clearing to make room for a less dull wardrobe and some intense spring cleaning. Here’s what else I’m looking forward to in the next few days.

It’s #TipsiTuesday! Last week, Ally and I had the pleasure of doing a wine and food pairing with the creative minds at Tipsi, an app that gives you intelligent recommendations and information about wine. Celebrate your own #TipsiTuesday at a restaurant near you by downloading the app (for free!) and learning the real reasons why that Pinot Noir from the wine list is your favorite.
I recently shared a great recipe for slow roasted salmon with citus, fennel, and chiles, which is a delicious option for a more special weekday dinner. Try it and let us know how it goes! Just remember to tag #bitchesinthekitchen on social media for any re-creations.
It’s tough to find a perfect shade of lipstick, especially with an overwhelming amount of choices in most beauty stores. Despite how great a bubblegum pink may look on your best galpal, you might need a more neutral color. This is where Bite Lip Lab comes in handy, offering you the unique and personal experience to sit down with a stylist and design a lip color from scratch that works for you right in the store. Plan a Thursday outing with girlfriends, but anticipate a long wait! 174 Prince St Tues-Sat 11 a.m. – 7 p.m., Sunday 11:00 a.m. – 5 p.m.
When our co-founder Cori Sue came up to New York City, we were eager to take her to a great bar for drinks to kick off the weekend of Bitch biz. We highly recommend Bell Book & Candle for an intimate post-work atmosphere with great cocktails to boot. I personally loved the spicy Aprihot, with Mezcal, apricot, habanero, lemon, and guajillo chili salt. 141 West 10th Street (between Greenwich Ave and Waverly Place).
Last weekend, I had an cheese-blissed experience at Bedford Cheese Shop, sampling various local goodies in search of the perfectly curated brunch at home. Thanks to the mongers, I selected an array of deliciousness, including slab bacon from Portland, raw cow cheese from Switzerland, and a wheat Pullman loaf from Il Forno in the Bronx. Needless to say, my omelette was amazing and I had a blast sampling different cheeses and learning about the places they came from. I suggest this weekend treat to anyone who has a hankering for a special brunch at home! 67 Irving Place Open Mon-Sat 8 a.m. – 9 p.m., Sunday 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Get brunching! Bitch in the City Ally recently braved the wait at Pies-N-Thighs to curb her boyfriend’s hankering for chicken and waffles. The massive starter pecan butter crunch doughnut, coupled with the restaurant’s marquis offering, made the wait well worth it. 166 S. 4th St. Brooklyn, NY Pies-N-Thighs serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
