Cooking Up A Love Storm

In today’s post, our newest regular contributor and food expert Jozette Kauffman celebrates Valentine’s Day with some yummy food and a dash of gross humor.  In her post, she wonders if I’ll invite her back after her foray into bodily function.  How could I not?  We here at Midtown Review love some inappropriate humor mixed in with our sappy [...]

Random Reflections from the Week

Forget Love – Go for Chocolate

When you’re single, Valentine's Day is... well... kind of a bummer.  (Though I have to admit it wasn't all that great even when I wasn’t single!)  Anyway, one of the most annoying parts of the whole thing is that instead of just the one day to be reminded of your singledom, you start getting bombarded by ads in mid-January: try [...]
