Wednesdays are for food and wine

If you look at the top right of this blog, you’ll see I’ve laid out a schedule of the features I intend to write about as this blog progresses. I want SaintPetersburg 2.0 to be about something more than Saint Petersburg elections or Florida politics so that when a reader comes here for analysis and insight, maybe they’ll read about another topic they find interesting — and our communal bond will grow all the more. One of my passions is…

SaintPetersblog 2.0

in Apolitical/Peter by

One ticket was for a flight bound for Saint Thomas, the other was destined for Long Island. To say that the flights were headed in different directions is an understatement, because for me, the only thing they had in common was they were both surrounded by water. Last November, I had to choose which direction I was going in by deciding between a flight to New York or the Virgin Islands. I am writing this letter — my Christmas letter…

Getting ready to say goodbye

in Peter by

I’m returning home in four days and I can’t wait. But first we needed to celebrate Aunt Judy’s 60th birthday. Aunt Judy is a big reason why I’ve had such a wonderful experience in New York. She gave me a place to live for a little while. She also played a very influential part in helping me to return to my faith by practically dragging me to daily Mass. She’s had a tough life, losing two children, one to leukemia,…

in Apolitical/Peter by

There’s something very cool…

My new apartment

in Apolitical by

As seen from the ferry in Port Jefferson Harbour, my apartment is an adorable, two-story, one bedroom in the heart of PJ Village. It’s a block away from Toas and a block away from Ruvo (and Kim and Talia). The view is amazing, even if the rent is atmospheric. The best feature is the built-in bookcase that just about swallowed up my entire collection. I’ve finally made a home in New York.

Yo Joey G!

in Apolitical by

How’d I meet this guy? I take his brother’s job. He’s pretty much the exact opposite of me, he with the rock hard abs and all and, yet, this guy, Joey G, has become one of my good friends up here in New York. He plays tennis. He plays cards. He knows pretty much every girl in the village, especially the fun ones. And he’s a hell of a bartender. Of course, he’s a full-blown wop, so we know he’s…
