At first, this site was created as a backup to my yelp page sayyes.yelp.com.
Then it became an outlet for all questions, answers, and discussions about food, drink and other forms of consumption.
Now, we are taking on quite a different venture altogether. This site is about helping people find love in NYC. Food love.
Here are my goals:
1) I want to be published in print some form of my food writing. SATISFIED – JACKSON HEIGHTS COMMUNITY JOURNAL ARTICLE
Update* – I won’t measure my success by other people’s permissions. For example: being published, winning awards, articles written about me, etc. My success is solving problems and seeing through my dreams.
2) I want to travel across the country, learn about the nation, eat unique regional foods, and document it. ON MY BICYCLE. Writing for a men’s magazine like what Playboy once was would be great for a year.
3) More to my mother’s preference of a stable job, another outlet would be working in Quality Control for a company that I respect such as Nathans Famous. I would love to travel to stores making sure that individual stands are representing the name as they should be. When I did the Nathans Hot Dog Eating Competition promo event I met a man who held this position, I thought it was the coolest job ever.
Also, working as a Social Director is something I am interested in. These pizza tours and food groups are exactly what I like doing: helping people experience new tastes and open their minds to what is possible (especially in NYC). If I could be paid to show around hungry, eager tourists… that would be amazing.
Something with NYC tourism is very interesting to me too. Also being an advocate for food people is important to me, not restraining their ability to do business and create whatever they want. Having a hand in the community is something I’d like to do. I am passionate about creating a great environment for small businesses and the area around them. The trash project is important to me. A BID (Business Improvement District) would be perfect.
4) I hope to bring into the mainstream: Corona, Elmhurst, and The Pizza Coastline, Queens living, home-style restaurants, real food and the people who I think are great food explorers.
Your help and contributions are very important to me. Please contact me through commenting on this blog to get involved. As things develop, I will create an update here.
