Brain Burger

Halloween at Cinnamon Soho: I consider myself to be a real foodie, however, when it comes to eating organs, I just can’t do it. No matter how many times my parents tell me “it’s good for you”, I can’t and I won’t eat it. Until last night. I braved the Halloween menu at Cinnamon Soho, the third […]

Sunny Afternoon Review


A Musical Biography of The Kinks: I’m a little unsure when it comes to musicals. When done well with good music which complements the story, I’m a fan.
