Times Talks: Alex Atala and David Chang

This evening I had the pleasure of attending a talk featuring Alex Atala and David Chang as part of the NYC Food and Wine Festival. As many of you know (especially those who are avid My Global Hustle readers), I’m obsessed with the movement that Alex has created in Brazil (specifically in the Amazon).

Trump Soho Preview

Image Hosted by

Last night I had a chance to check out the new Trump Soho on Spring and Varick street. The mixed used property (hotel/condo) is kind of nutz. I arrived a lil late, so I didn’t get to see the rooms or the view from the top level.

From what I’m told Trump Soho is the tallest building in the area with an unobstructed 360 degree view of Manhattan. I’ll be taking a trip down there another day, so ya’ll can get a flavor for the rooms and the view. Go here for more info. -!YG (more…)

Doha….. The New Dubai?

Over the past year… I’ve had a number of friends moving to Doha, Qatar for career opportunities. Apparently… Doha is making a big push to replace Dubai as the hot spot for investment & tourism in the Middle East. I hope to make a trip out there before the end of the year. -!YG
