Worthwhile reads from the web this week

Whoops! It’s already Tuesday and I didn’t share with you guys my worthwhile reads from the web this week from LAST week. I already wrote a bit about my week, with the perfect date night and my first impressions of Granary Tavern. Besides that, I hit up a few new places in Downtown Crossing Friday with an old co-worker, which I will share with you guys soon.

The weekend was productive on the writing and cooking front (did you see my recipe for tomato sauce?) and I also made it out for Sunday Funday on the patios of a few local bars including The Landing and Tia’s (where I always seem to be lately!) Anyways, for the week of the 16th of July, here is what caught my eye!
