The adventures of an urbane bar-hopping transplant to New York.

I'm a storyteller in the New York area who is a regular on NPR's "This American Life" and at shows around the city. Moved to New York in 2006 and am working on selling a memoir of my years as a greeting card writer, and (as a personal, noncommercial obsession) a nonfiction book called "How to Love God Without Being a Jerk." My agent is Adam Chromy at Artists and Artisans. If you came here after hearing about my book on "This American Life" and Googling my name, the "How to Love God" book itself isn't in print yet, and may not even see print in its current form (I'm focusing on humorous memoir), but here's a sample I've posted in case you're curious anyway: Sample How To Love God Introduction, Pt. 1 of 3. Or just look through the archives for September 18, 2007.) The book you should be expecting is the greeting card book, about which more information is pending. Keep checking back!

But Is It Halal?


34th Street somewhere between Park and Madison. I've been going to Dunkin' Donutses for years and it never occurred to me to ask. Only in New York, I guess.

I don't know about halalitude (don't even know the correct terminology) but kashruth is a potential issue in connection with anything fried — donuts, potato chips, French fries, etc. You want to know that it isn't being cooked in animal fat.

The big issue is that most Dunkin Donuts serve ham and sausage sandwiches. Kosher DDs (we have one here in the Boston area) serve a limited menu: aside from the baked goods (which have to come from a DD commisary that has a rabbi coming in periodically to spot-check that they're following the rules) and beverages, the only sandwich they offer is the egg-and-cheese (no meat) and they don't have any soups.
