Let’s back up a bit, back to late last week when I was in the city. Indoor dining in the city has been closed (but is set to reopen this Friday). While downtown in lower Manhattan, we stopped at Little Italy pizza for some pizza to eat outside. It’s a bit strange to eat pizza […]

As I mentioned in yesterday’s workout recap, I finally went to Smorgasburg on Saturday.
