I just gotta share, last night I ate the best Italian food I’ve ever had, thanks to @OlioEPiu 🍝 (See my Stories and you’ll understand) ⠀
This week I’ve been glued to my laptop finalizing a whole 9 months of research and writing. I feel like a pregnant woman with an overdue baby, metaphorically. I’m so excited to bring this into the world! ⠀
In the meantime, please bear with my absence on the ‘gram, I promise you it’s worth it. Thanks for your support!⠀

Save the date! Our next FWF Spotlight event is coming up on Friday, September 28th.
FWF Spotlight is a new kind of networking mixer created to help connect the movers and shakers in our community.
This is a casual evening with no formal presentations–and of course, it wouldn’t be a FWF event without something delicious to eat. Our goal is to continue to get to know the people behind our local businesses and organizations while having a ton of fun in the process.
Not only will there be awesome people to get to know, but we’ve got gourmet hors d’oeuvres, our signature adult beverage, and a local band to provide the entertainment.
This is networking with a twist and we’d love to count you in.
Early bird pricing is $20 so make sure to save your seat now. Link in the bio!
(7) The Helen Hayes Theatre, 240 W 44th Street. Opened March 12, 1912 with just 300 seats, it was originally called The Little Theatre. Even after an expansion in the 1920s afforded it a total of 590 seats, it remains the smallest playhouse on Broadway. This was intentional: the Little Theatre’s original owner and designer, Winthrop Ames, wanted it to be a place where audiences could enjoy plays in an intimate setting. For Ames, the Little Theatre was a bit of a pet project, paid for out of his own pocket, and flying in the face of prevailing commercial trends, which favored bigger, flashier theaters. He held on to the Little until his retirement, selling it in 1931 to the New York Times, which used the space as a lecture hall. It became a theater again in 1959, and for much of the 1960s, it was home to the Merv Griffin Show. The Little Theatre was renamed in honor of actress Helen Hayes in 1983, after the original theater bearing her name on 46th Street was demolished to make way for the Marriott Marquis Hotel. In 2015 the Little / Hayes Theatre was sold to Second Stage Theater Company who, after years of renovations, opened in Spring 2018 with “Lobby Hero.”
