First off, you bunch of perverts, MY dad didn’t write a porno. But now that I know the way your twisted minds work, I know you’re gonna LOVE this. “My Dad Wrote A Porno” is a podcast (yes, they are still a thing), that tells the hilarious story of Jamie Morton, a normal British lad who unexpectedly discovers one day that his father penned a very dirty novel. The simple premise of the podcast is that he, and his two very funny friends, read the manuscript complete with commentary. The result is hysterical. The porno, “Belinda Blinked,” is truly terrible (though rather graphic, be warned), but the trio of Jamie, Alice and James are brilliant, and the podcast is side-splittingly funny. In addition, they d...

I hadn’t ever heard of the Webster until one day last month when Alyssa (yes, of the Alyssa Brody Team) told me we were going to meet with Lauren Preston, the Webster’s Client Relations Manager, to plan an event together. Everyone knows I like the finer things in life, so when I realized the Webster is an exclusive ultra-luxury multi-brand boutique, I jumped right on board! Founded in 2009, the Webster has locations in South Beach, Bal Harbour, Costa Mesa, and my native Houston - can't wait to go back and check out that one! But lucky for us, the Webster’s fifth and newest boutique, located at 29 Greene Street in SoHo, just opened in November 2017. The 12,000 square-foot, six-floor cast iron building was built in 1878, ...

Are you ready for the summer? Sand in your feet, wind in your hair, laying out on the beach, getting a nice tan to show off to your friends at the office. Some of us may be pretty pumped to throw a bathing suit on while others not so much. It’s okay if you slacked off a little during the winter! There is still plenty of time to get shreddi confetti before prime beach season time! Coming from a very athletic background and having a father who has spent 30+ years in the personal training/ sports nutrition world, I am here to lend a helping hand to those who of you who are interested in getting into great shape.

There are plenty of preconceived notions out there about how to train, what to eat, and all of that fun stuff. I am not here ...

Certain experiences just blow you away. Recently I was lucky enough to travel to St. Maarten, a Caribbean island that is still beautiful despite the devastating hurricanes in 2017. While lots of the island is worth exploring, you should waste no time booking it to Maho Beach, one of the only beaches in the world that is adjacent to an active airfield. It’s a bit of a project to get to this runway, but hire one of the local taxis and you’ll fly right there. As you recline in the sun, planes land right over your head, and seem close enough that you can put your beach chair in the upright position and touch them. And once or twice a day, a big one takes off: get ready. They back up to the fence right next to the beach and when t...

As some of you may or may not know, I have played soccer almost my entire life. Starting off as a youngin playing for DUSC (Downtown United Soccer Club), moving on to MSC (Manhattan Soccer Club), then off to Blau Weiss Gottschee and being one of the first teams to start off what is now known as “The Academy.” Spent my summers training in Brazil, played all four years at Xavier High school at the Varsity level, then going off to Canisius College where I played four years of Division 1 soccer. With all of that being said, being born and raised in New York City AND playing soccer, it was always a struggle to find field space. Most of the time I would go to the nearest handball court and just simply kick the ball against the wall...

5 great restaurant to try in DC

I love New York and New York City real estate but I can’t claim to be a native. I was born and bred in Maryland and am currently back home in the DMV (DC, Marlyland and Virginia) area for Compass’ Real Estate retreat. Since I’m back in my stomping grounds for the week, I thought this week’s Tuesday with Trish could be about some great restaurants to try in my hometown.

Shaw’s Tavern
Shaw’s is one of my favorite bunch places in the area. The food is consistently good and in the Spring and summer, there’s nothing better that eating a plate of their Baily’s French toast in the outside patio.

Busboys and PoetsBusboys and poets is a staple in the DMV. There are severa...

Choosing a place for date night is never easy, especially if it is a first date and you are trying to make a good first impression. The options are endless here in Manhattan and deciding on a location could be overwhelming for some. Luckily there is a solution to this problem, and that solution is Porto Bello. Right in the heart of Greenwich Village, on the renowned tree lined Thompson Street is where you can find this gem.

Thursday- After a long week of working, it doesn’t hurt to have a drink and reconnect with friends. The perfect place to do unwind is The Blond, which can be found at 11 Howard St. I highly recommend starting with their delicious chicken fingers and a Don Julio on the rocks or you can always ask the Bartender Roxy to make you a specialty cocktail. I usually tend to keep Thursday’s low key and save my energy for the weekend festivities ahead.

Friday- To end the work week I usually have a Friday open house in the early evening for those who cannot make it during the week. After, I make my way to Paul’s Casablanca. Their Friday night special includes 80’s music that I cannot help but dance to. Depending on how much I ...
