  1. Tom’s Restaurant (facade for Seinfeld restaurant sequences), Morningside Heights, NYC

    Also immortalized in a Susan Vega song that I have always hated and now have stuck in my head. Crap.

  2. Hanging out with Rand’s grandparents, Bryant Park.

    We all need not look at the camera for it to be an awesome photo.

  3. Inscription on statue of Samuel J. Tilden (the Al Gore of his day), Riverside Park, NYC

    And he won the popular vote, too.

  4. Receiving a hug from Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient Major Bruce “Snake” Crandall, Hilton Hotel, Midtown.

    He told me Greg Kinnear played him in a movie. I asked if the likeness was a good one, and he replied, I was better looking.

  5. Editorialized checking balance inquiry, Upper East Side ATM

    WTF, indeed. Whoever this person is, they need a money market account.

  6. Sign outside a restaurant in Chelsea.

    Only singling out dogs make this an invitation to everyone else.

  7. View from rooftop deck, Chelsea.

    It was cold. Damn cold.

    The wind was so strong, the balcony shook.

  8. So that’s where he works! Midtown, NYC.

    And all this time, I thought he was in the Meatpacking District.

  9. “Get Right With God” sign, Midtown.

    Now Im just getting mixed messages.

  10. He asked me what I wanted to do. I told him, “I want to walk through Times Square with you.” And we did.

    And thats all it takes to make me happy.

  • I didn't do nearly all that I set out to do today. But I had a lovely dinner thanks to this man and some excellent out of town guests. So perhaps the measure of a day isn't always about that damn checklist. (Maybe. Ask me again tomorrow when all the stress hits me. 🤔😅)
  • You can't expect things to look *exactly* like the picture in the cookbook. But sometimes they do anyway. #alisonroman #diningincookbook #diningin #cocoabananabread #instadesserts #baking
  • Here it is, folks. The paperback edition of my book is out today. The hardcover came out more than two years ago, so it's wonderful to know that this story of mine still has life and is, gasp, still selling copies. Don't miss the book that Lauren Graham called "the travel companion you'll be happy you brought along" and that some guy on Twitter said was "immature and stupid." It's available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indiebound. #bookstagram #summerreading #bookworms
  • This lady. ❤️❤️❤️ So proud of her.
  • HAPPY LAUNCH DAY!! I really want to curl up in bed with this amazing novel today, but I can't - for an amazing reason. Because I'm going to be at the Lake Forest Park location of Third Place Books tonight, discussing it with the author, my dear friend @andreadunlop. Lady, I'm so proud of you. ❤️ ❤️❤️ #bookstagram #summerreading
  • Baking in an AirBnB is always an adventure. I didn't have a measuring cup for the flour so I eyeballed it, and had to use a wine bottle as a rolling pin to make these handpies. Not my best work, but @demeritt and @randderuiter seemed cool with the results, so I'm going to accept that sometimes good enough is, well, enough. 🥧🍴
  • "I hit the jackpot." That's how I once heard Michael J. Fox describe his marriage years ago, and it stayed with me. I've never found a better way of describing our relationship than that. Bells ring. Lights flash. Coins spill everywhere. Now, where's my complimentary breakfast?
  • Someone sent Rand socks with his face all over them, and he's really bothered by this but I'm gonna rock the hell out of them.
  • I told him to stop looking at the camera.
  • Eating junk food on the ferry with this guy right before dinner is kind of the dream.

Buy my book and I promise I'll never ask you for anything again.

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
