Restaurant Review: Macbar

Restaurant Review: Macbar
by Molly Fergus LG New Editor The Macbar (www.delicatessennyc.com) décor doesn’t remind me of home. The yellow walls scream, the noodle-shaped room surprises, the fluorescent lights make me want to reapply my makeup. It all seems more like a bright game show set or a Sanrio store than mom’s...

Lost Girl of the Week: Katherine Ainsworth

Lost Girl of the Week: Katherine Ainsworth
A few months ago, we bumped into a very good friend of ours, Katherine Ainsworth, in (of all places!) an airport in Minneapolis-St Paul airport. She was positively glowing with the news that in a few short weeks, she would be leaving New York City and heading to Paris to start business school-and a brand...

The World’s Largest Marathon: New York City

The World’s Largest Marathon: New York City
My favorite way to explore any city is to run or bike through it. And I was lucky enough to be able to join 39,000 people running through all five boroughs for the ING New York City marathon last Sunday. More than 100,000 people applied from all over the world. I took the Staten Island ferry to the...

Summer In The City: New York edition

Summer In The City: New York edition
My fellow Lost Girls and I have been busy plugging away at writing the book all summer long, so we haven’t been getting out as much as we used to. Heck, after a few days spent cuddled up with my computer, I consider just going to an evening yoga class a big night out. And while it tends to be naturally...

LG Obession: Idlewild

LG Obession: Idlewild
I didn’t think it was possible to love bookstores even more than I already do (the scent of freshly printed paperbacks mixed with coffee grounds practically makes me high) until the random Thursday morning I stumbled upon Idlewild in New York City. I’d been granted a full day off work, and...

The Lost Girls: They’re Baaaack!

The Lost Girls: They’re Baaaack!
We’re still here! And by “here” we mean New York City. We just wanted to give a shout out to let y’all know that we’ve reunited in the Big Apple and temporarily retired our backpacks (and our vagabond ways) to restock our bank accounts and (re)join the rest of the working...
