New York City!

Oh how exciting! I am about to embark on my first ever trip to NYC!

Next week Arianna Huffington, co-founder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post, will moderate a discussion on "The Year Ahead" in politics and culture with HuffPost bloggers: Nora Ephron, author and screenwriter; Erica Jong, author; Barbara Ehrenreich, author; Trey Ellis, author and screenwriter; and Paul Rieckhoff, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) executive director.

As a contributing writer for Huffpo, I will be driving to The Big Apple to attend. It's about an eight hour trip, and I am a little nervous about actually driving in the city and finding my way around, but only with great risk comes great reward, right?

In addition, the trip will offer an opportunity to get some face time with my cyber-friends.

I can't wait to post all about it and share the goings on of the event with you all.

(I will also have a big article coming out on Huffpo that stay tuned folks.)

Have a wonderful trip to N.Y.C.
New Yorkers are very aggressive drivers. They will not let you in.
Enjoy the conference and be sure to have some Italian food in little Italy. Find am Italian coffee shop and have a real Cafe' latte.

Oh, how fantastic!

What Gabriele said. I have literally ended up asking myself, "What would Tony Stewart do?", and then *doing* it!

There is some *good* eating of all kinds to be had here, however.

I'll be looking out for your article!
