For a movie fan, it’s always exciting when you stumble upon a great film that no one else has seen. Maybe it’s a solid script, or a great performance, or masterful direction, but something about it makes you want to return to it again and again. Your first reaction is almost always to keep it to yourself, perhaps worried that if it ‘gets out there,’ it will blow-up and become something entirely different than what you first fell in love with. But finally you relent and tell a few people about it, in the hopes that they will share your affection for it and gain the same pleasure as you.
Recently, I had that reaction to a local New York bakery. Golden Honey Bear Bakery makes some of the tastiest cookies I’ve had in a long while. We were lucky enough to have some delivered to the office last week and after more than a few “visits” to the box, I finally told my assistant to “please, just finish them”, so I wouldn’t be continually tempted to go back for more.
If you’re interested in trying them for yourself (at $10/dozen they’re a great value!), please contact Kash at 646.379.4037 or Honeybearbakery@yahoo.com. Delivery is available.
Think of it as my contribution to your writer’s diet.
