What do you collect? Useless facts
Favourite thing about your city? Its citizenry’s sense of agency — we can protest the shit out of everything!
What was the last photo that you took? Probably an accidental screenshot or some new products available at the bar.
Where was your last vacation? January to March 2020 was an amazing blur! A 5-city Euro Tour with the ACC team, visiting our friends at Milk & Honey, Syndicat, Bar Sauvage, The Clumsies & Mag Café; followed by a hop over to good ol’ U.S. of A. for some fun with Employees Only NYC & Broken Shaker Miami; only to head back to Spain for the annual Flamenco Festival with La Guita & Valdespino; and finish the whirlwind adventure in Toronto for IWD 2020 with some of my favourite faces in Canadian hospitality! Incredible!
Any claims to fame? I was an Irish Princess for a year
Belt or suspenders? Belt. For sure. No one with a healthy chest looks good in suspenders…
Fernet or Cynar? Cynar forever
New Orleans or New York City? NOLA, baby!
Glass or Tin? Tin. Won’t break in my luggage.
