I maintain a website called Eating In Translation about interesting, usually inexpensive food in and around New York.
Interests: Classic films, fiction, travel (even if it's an extended day trip), poker (friendly games only), collecting (mostly flat things, since my apartment is small), trivia (covers most everything else).
