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

Name:
Location: New York, New York, United States

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!

Dave Fun Quiz: Food and Drink Wordplay

I've been going to a lot of health food stores recently, and I noticed the following fact: if you take the names of two grains commonly found in health food stores, combine them, and rearrange the letters, you can spell the name of a liqueur common to many mixed drinks. What are the words?

UPDATE: As you might expect, the answers are in the comments. So consider this a spoiler alert.
