2022 New York City Marathon Recap: Kelly Rupinski

The New York City Marathon took place on November 6th. It is a massive event that was established in 1970 and is always held on the first Sunday of November.

Elizabeth Eats: Toro

Elizabeth Ginsburg, MBA Class of 2014

A lot of people roll their eyes at the tapas and small plates trend. There is no shortage of mediocre tapas restaurants and if you’re not a sharer then you’re definitely not a fan. Some people say small plates are overplayed, or you may find it cumbersome because you never know exactly how much to order. For this reason, I’m hesitant to characterize Toro, a newly opened restaurant on West 15th Street at 11th Avenue, as just a tapas restaurant. Point being, yes, Toro is a tapas restaurant, but it is one that warrants getting excited about.…

Blue Water Grill

Looking to brunch in a relaxed yet proper setting, perhaps to bring your in-laws or date? You have to try this place! The Brunch menu boasts a variety of seafood selection, from lobster crab popover to crab cake benedicts. Prices are very reasonable once you factor in a complimentary alcoholic and hot beverage included with each brunch item.
