The Adventures of Big Apple Angie

She Believed She Could, So She Did.

Angie is Away

2010-12-03T23:27:32.337-05:00 is currently on hiatus while BAA travels around the world for the next year or so. Stay tuned to for updates on the adventure! (image)

Flat Stephanie & The Macy's Parade


My precious little cousin Amyah in Wisconsin sent me an unusual surprise in the mail a few weeks ago - my very own Flat Stephanie. Flat Stephanie is a friend of Flat Stanley, of course, and the two have been known to fold up into envelopes, mail themselves to relatives in interesting places and expect to be photographed with all sorts of cool landmarks. Amyah's whole class is participating and (image)

Thank You for New York


On the corner of West 47th St. and 10th Avenue, you’ll find Five Brothers Gourmet Market. Open 24 hours a day, Five Brothers is part deli and part grocery, with overpriced $7 boxes of cereal and reasonable $3 sandwiches. Somehow the gourmet part eluded me all these years, as I have only patronized the brothers for junk food, diet sodas and tasty grilled cheeses. There are (image)

Only in New York


I'm getting very, very nostalgic and frankly, quite sad about leaving NYC. It's been a brilliant four years! Check out one of my favorite NYC songs from Thoroughly Modern Millie. My favorite line? Each day it's free admission to those who dream. The wonders of the world are said to stop at seven But truth to tell my figures don't agree I number them at eight, with one so close to Heaven The (image)

What Happens To BAA Now?


Now that the big announcement is public, you may be wondering what's going to happen to Big Apple Angie.  As of Dec. 2, BAA will be on an indefinite hiatus. Until then, I’ll keep updating with NYC-centric goodness as much as I’m able. Don’t forget to check out and bookmark it if you haven’t already!(image)

Upheaval, As Promised


Last night, I had a dream. I can’t remember what it was about, but I recall my old pals Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale were there. That’s not particularly unusual for me… Gwen pops up in my dreams all the time. She’s the one celebrity that I would really like to be friends with. My dreams are never sensational either. Usually it’s just me, Gwen and say, Lauren, hanging out(image)

Change On The Way


We did not change as we grew older; we just became more clearly ourselves. Lynn Hall, Where Have All the Tigers Gone?(image)

The Best Of Times, The Worst Of Times


I mentioned a while ago that there is some upheaval on the way and I want to give you fair warning - it's happening really soon (perhaps on a certain someone's birthday)! While we await the big news, I thought we could reminisce about the good times and the bad times we've shared over the past four years and 700+ posts here on Remember Bev B and her absurdly frightening hip (image)

Chasing Pirates


Remember a few months ago when I traveled to The Bahamas for two weeks for a video shoot? We covered Nassau, Paradise Island, Bimini, Eleuthera, Harbour Island, Exuma, Grand Bahama Island and Abaco, and subsequently have been posting videos on YouTube with the footage as Mike edits them. You may have noticed I've been a bit quiet over the past two weeks and you can blame The Bahamas once again, (image)

Orthapalooza 2010


Even though us kids are (almost) all grown up now, we still look forward to our annual Orthapalooza family vacation where we inevitably cram 4 tall people and 1 shortie into an itty bitty, budget friendly room. In 2006, we took a cruise and last year, we went to Disney for Night of Joy. This year, we planned to spend time in Wisconsin with our extended family the week before Erricka's wedding. As(image)

13, 29


I was born on Friday the 13th as you know, which makes 13 my official lucky number. (I also maintain that it prevents me from being affected by any other unlucky superstitions. Black cats? More like rainbows. Walking under ladders? One of my favorite pastimes. Broken mirror? Like winning the lottery.) I realized on Wed., Oct. 13, that I have just 13 months left in my 20s. For the math (image)

Fine Points, Part 3


My final session of acupuncture was the proverbial icing on the cake, the straw that broke the camel’s back and the nail in the coffin. (Here’s hoping you like clichés.) I’d made it through a jittery first few experiences and the unexpected burning skull jab and was now about to take on my 4th round of the procedure. Certainly, I mused, it would work this time, and I’d come out on the other end (image)

Updates to Come



Fine Points, Part 2


Having been through the mental ordeal that was Acupuncture Session 1 and the similarly nerve-wracking but uneventful Session 2, I showed up for Session 3 feeling like a seasoned old pro. I've got this, I gloated to no one but myself. I assumed the patented "facedown, underpants up, hospital gown slightly askew" position on the table to receive my pokes. This time though, the needles didn't (image)

Not to Put too Fine a Point on Things


When my chiropractor suggested acupuncture for my ongoing back/neck issues, I quickly agreed because I am just about out of other options. I already get medical massage, physical therapy and chiropractic work at least once a week… not to mention loads of ibuprofen and the occasional muscle relaxer. Acupuncture seemed like just another casual experiment. Strangely, I didn’t give much thought to a (image)

A Tiny Difference of Opinion


Scene: Lounging at the beach at Robert Moses State Park on Long Island Monday afternoon La La La Lauren: Hey BAA, what is the one word that best describes you? BAA: Hmm, I don't know. (Long, thoughtful pause.) Probably rational. LLLL: RATIONAL? I think your word is impulsive! BAA: No, it's rational. LLLL: No, it's impulsive! BAA: No, it's definitely rational. I'm like, the least impulsive (image)

A Rare NYC M-o-t-S


Crossing the street on the way to the bank a few days ago, I came across your average NYC Man-on-the-Street - potentially skeezy, a little bleary-eyed, scrubby looking and very vocal about his love for ladies. Regardless of the woman's attire (seriously, this happens in sweatpants as much as high heels), this type of fellow can often be heard slurring something like, "Dayum, baby, you look (image)

(Near) Death by Chimichurri


As a near constant traveler, and a woman of somewhat small stature, I am extra careful when traveling. I don’t knowingly put myself in danger (shark cage diving is not that dangerous!) and I take great care to be aware of my surroundings. But what happens when you aren’t doing anything dangerous and danger befalls you anyhow? I wish I had advice on how to avoid what happened to me in Cancun, but (image)

BAA - 0 | Wisconsin - 2


My cousin Erricka got married a few weeks ago, and attending her nuptuals meant attempting yet another completely bananas trip to Wisconsin. You may recall the last trip in February... this one was shorter and for a much happier occasion - but predictably just as wild.  Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Border - How gorgeous are their kids going to be!? I was already going on two nights in a row of less (image)



Sometime between Austin, Europe, The Bahamas, Hogwart's and Mexico, I managed to stay put in NYC for one whole weekend so I could a.) attend Travel Blog Exchange '10 for the second year in a row and b.) plan and host a speakeasy-themed party to kickoff the weekend and showcase my clients to all the great travel writers in attendance. Mostly, it was an entertaining and informational weekend, but (image)

Muggles on Business


It’s no secret that I go on some spectacular business trips, but the truth is that even the dreamiest tropical island or snazziest hotel can be lonely (and I daresay boring) when you don’t have anyone fun to share it with. I know, I know, you’re playing the world’s tiniest violin because you feel so sorry for me. It’s not like I live in a cupboard under the stairs and he-who-shall-not-be-named (image)

Just Say No... To High School Reunions


I flew to Florida in June for my high school reunion, though I didn’t actually have a high school reunion to go to. Let me explain. As a senior class officer, one of my duties is/was to help plan future reunions. Who signs up for a “duty” 10 years in the future? Overachieving freaks like me and Dwight Schrute, that’s who. Long story short… I spent six months planning the weekend’s events, $500 (image)

Summer in the City


Knowing we had just a few short weeks left as a fab foursome in Apt. 1E (Sara got married & the South reclaimed Erica), we called a few friends, filled the atrium pool and fired up the grill for the perfect little Memorial Day barbecue. Grilled corn on the cob - yum!Good friends, good food & good weatherThe BAA Dip Trifecta: Fruit Dip, Guacamole with home grown cilantro and Spinach Dip in a Bread(image)

My Whole House is Great!


This precious little nugget has almost single handedly cheered me up after a rough couple of weeks. I am thinking about standing on my sink and hollering about everything I like in the morning... I'll let you know how it goes! (image)
