No Reservations with Japanese Breakfast

Story by Chad Kamenshine June 25th, 2016

“THAT‘S TIGHT“

With a sound that pulls you into a Cocteau Twins state of mind, Michelle Zauner takes the heartbreak of losing a loved one and transforms it into an emotionally fueled record of self expression and healing. It’s the type of beauty that manifests itself when one is truly tested and has to dig deep inside themselves.

We spent the day wandering around Queens. First, hitting up New World Mall for the type of authentic eats that Anthony Bourdain would be proud of and afterwards we visited the historic Unisphere at Flushing Meadows–Corona Park.

This was most definitely a tight hangout.
