01 | Tito’s Handmade Vodka
I’ve been known to frequent only establishments that keep this well stocked.
02 | Kentucky Derby
Always the first Saturday in May, this annual tradition in Louisville is a cultural event that few should miss. Not only is it the greatest two minutes in sports, but it is also a trip back to my roots and to a city I once called home.
03 | Jerry’s Artarama
The Home Depot for artists.
04 | Elephant’s Trunk
Fairfield county’s largest outdoor flea market. Over the past two decades, I’ve spent many early Sunday mornings searching for hidden treasures and objets d’art.
05 | W Hotels
Their style, amenities, and service can turn the most mundane travel into a little vacation.
06 | Calasanz
This Norwalk dojo has been my source for boxing and martial arts, physical fitness, and stress release.
07 | HBO
From Entourage to Curb Your Enthusiasm—“It’s not TV, it’s HBO.”
08 | Compo Beach
Since I moved to the area over 20 years ago, Compo has been my quick escape to the great outdoors. From a game of beach volleyball to sunset picnic dinners with the family, Compo is a local jewel.
09 | Brazil
Paradise of the Atlantic. Like my wife, Cristiane, Brazil is friendly and stylish and loves to party.
10 | My Sons, Jack & Max
They personify my favorite traits: courage, compassion, intelligence, and an unyielding quest for all things fun.
