Things I Googled This Week
Sometimes I like to think back to the week, and really get some perspective and what better way to see what you got into and thought about then reflecting on your Google searches? Maybe it’s just me, but I find this kind of information to be telling. Why was I googling that again? Oh, right. My googling is usually a compilation of something in the news, a new product or clothing piece of some sort, and then something to do with restaurants/food, etc. Go back and think what have I googled and more importantly, what have I learned that I didn’t know before? Without further ado, here’s what I got “on the google” to learn and discover. . .
*The CFDA 2015 winner. I’ve started watching this series on Amazon Prime about the CFDA Fashion Fund and its applicants. It’s everything about reality tv I can get behind, and a kind of binge watching that comes easy to me. I find Anna Wintour hilarious and well, every female board member I idolize (Jenna Lyons, Diane von Furstenburg, Anna. . .), so yes, new series, and I don’t mind a spoiler, so I wanted to know, or rather remind myself, because I’m sure I read about it somewhere previously anyway.
*Great Big Story. My coworker met with the lead team of this new news site. And well, I was intrigued to see how yet another content site is going to break through all the media to stick and stick with millennials (their target audience). I scanned and scrolled the home page, but nothing caught my interest enough to actually click. . . what does that mean?
*Rooftop at Eataly. a.k.a. Baita. It’s a “pop up” restaurant ending well, today, that sits on top of Eataly. I’m skeptical of it being “pop up” since there was always a restaurant on the roof, but I suppose the menu is temporary and they gave it a new name with some thematic flair, too. I had a team dinner there this week, and it was a lovely evening out. I enjoyed the menu well enough, but don’t fret if you didn’t get there in time. Half the appeal is just being on the roof, so you should still go at some point in the future if you haven’t already been.
*Rodrigo y Gabriela. They’re back on tour! I knew they were on tour but wanted to confirm the date that they’re playing at MSG, and somehow already sold out. But hoping my work hookup can come through again for some stellar seats when June 30 rolls around.
*I’ve done a fair share of googling around all sorts of details relating to visiting East Hamptons for this summer (location to certain other noted spots, restaurants, where to stay. . .) but definitely I googled “hot air balloon rides Hudson” and came up with some decent and a handful of options. It’s been quite a long time since I found myself up away and in a hot air balloon ride, but I always forget how the Hudson area has a ton of foliage and would be worth a ride over it. But definitely can’t be deciding on any activities until a place can be found to stay. . .
Give it a go, and try to think back to your Google searches for the week, see what you recall, and see what you don’t!
