The P.S. Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

On this exceedingly snowy day, as I tuck into my Uggs and my chamomile tea, I’d like to extend wintry Valentine’s Day greetings to one and all. Since we at Princeton Scoop like to advise you on the what, the where, and the how of your every day lives, naturally we would have something to…

“Jazz” Hands

Share time, everyone: I am a theater geek. Yes, it’s true. I am a bona fide, dyed-in-the-wool theater geek. I am that person who, when she finds herself tucked into a velvet-covered chair in the belly of a beautiful theater, as soon as the lights dim and the curtain is pulled back with a swish,…

All You Need Is “LOVE SHOW”

Ah, l’amour. Amāre. El amor. The eternal flame (thank you, Bangles circa 1989). However you verbalize it, it’s the thing that seems to be on everyone’s mind this month (and I wonder why—have you been in a card store lately?). Thus, you’re either inspired to lavish terms and gifts of endearment on your loved ones,…

The Balanced Guy: On Getting Away

I figure February is as good a time as any to discuss getting the heck out of the cold weather, especially after moving back to N.J. after eight years in southwest Florida (the Ft. Myers/Naples area). I’ll poke my nose into a few other topics, as well. First and foremost, I think, as with any…

Well, I’ll tell you what’s going on. In light of the fact that the groundhog has spoken—and we can look forward to six more glorious weeks of winter—it’s imperative that we keep ourselves busy over the course of the next (let’s be honest) two months. Herewith, a few thoughts on how to stay occupied on…

Celebrating Black History Month

Wow. February 1. I can’t believe how quickly 2010 seems to be slipping away. Which is the reason why I like to stop what I’m doing, grab a cup of chamomile tea (Tazo Calm is my go-to), and refocus my energies on the things that have nothing to do with Pink’s performance at last night’s…

The P.S. Weekly Top Five

This week’s list is—as always during this time of year—motivated by the blow-through-your-brains cold that has descended upon us this week, and is inspired by comfort. The comfort may be literal, it may be figurative (and require you to actually leave your house), but each offering provides some sort of consolation; a lovely reassurance like…

The Balanced Guy: On Cool Pools

If, like me, you live in Central Jersey and are a bit of an architecture aficionado, I highly suggest you take a trip over to Hightstown and check out the new pool at The Peddie School. A pre-fab, steel building with a cee-ment pond it ain’t. Don’t get me wrong, steel pre-fabs are fantastic in…
