Favorite place for a cup of coffee: I've been obsessed with the rise of renovating shipping containers into functional work and live spaces. Brash is exactly that! It's a small shipping container that serves some of the most delicious drink in West Midtown. My favorite is the iced chai latte with soy milk.

Favorite place for lunch: Milk and Honey is a beautiful, homey spot. It's is my go to when I'm missing home! My favorite dish is the crab hash.

Favorite place for happy hour: I just turned 21. I'm still figuring out what drinks I love and absolutely hate. But the place that never fails is Joystick Gamebar in Edgewood -- it's a perfect place for games, drinks, and music! It also has a frosted coffee bourbon. It's sweet with a fun punch from the liquor -- feels like the perfect intro to drinking cocktail.

Favorite place for dinner: Every time I step into Barcelona, I feel like I'm transported to a totally different, magical place. The menu is extremely shareable, and the perfect spot for a sweet low key date! The octopus is my favorite. I'm a huge seafood lover, so I pair that with clams, always.

Favorite place for late night food and drinks: I love games! The Painted Duck is always the place to go for me and my friends. The shrimp skewers and an ice cold ginger beer are my go-to snacks -- they're easy to hold and they taste delicious!
