    Review: Mazda MX-5 Grand Touring

    Thanks to Mazda I was provided the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Grand Touring to test drive. As always, all opinions are my own.

    Last month me and my husband celebrated our eleven year anniversary. We didn’t leave NYC we stayed local and decided to make it a date night. To celebrate we got to test out the 2019 Mazda Miata Grand Touring model. This car is kid free proof,even though they wanted to come but it’s only a 2 seater (sorry kids). My 7 year old son said Mommy why drive such a small car like this. Because the car is so small it takes some getting use to but once you get over how everything around you is so big it’s smooth sailing.

    We went to the Hip Hop Restaurant Beatstro which is a great restaurant for comfort food with a hip hop vibe  (so glad we no longer have to travel to Manhattan for great food).

    What makes this car so special that my husband loves is the sports car feel and the retractable rooftop. We took the car around the Bronx and received many compliments.

     

    Some of the specs include:

    • Push Button ignition
    • BOSE AM/FM 9 Speaker
    • 7″ Color touch-screen display
    • Advanced keyless entry system
    • Heated front seats
    • Rearview Camera

    The price point of the Mazda MX-5 Grand Touring comes in at $34,410 (amazing price)!

    Empanology: A Great Place To Eat

    Empanology: A Great Place To Eat

    The Bronx is rising and we are seeing more small businesses. While I like major food chains like Cheesecake Factory, Hard Rock Cafe, BBQ’s, and Olive Garden, there is something unique about restaurants that are run with an entrepreneurial spirit. You find these unique restaurants like Harlem Shake, Red Rooster in Harlem and you have Sweet Chicks in Brooklyn but what about the Bronx? Bronx is the birthplace of Hip-Hop what do they have to offer?

    Harlem, Brooklyn, Manhattan have restaurants owned by entrepreneurs that add a personal touch that big food chains don’t have.

    Guess what?

    I recently got the chance to stop at a new hotspot called Empanology. The name alone makes you curious. With a bit of Puerto Rican island feel mixed with modern contemporary gives you the villages vibes with brick walls.

     

    I grew up around Puerto Ricans all my life playing on the block, learning spanish eating Arroz con pollo and I loved empanadas.

    What makes Empanology unique:

    • They have a truck stand on the inside.
    • The decor is great with a contemporary vide with brick walls
    • Chalkboard menu
    • Great outside venue including string lights and board games outside
    • Variety of empanadas like Red Velvet and Vegan options

    They had celebrities like Mos Def come by and they have hosted a series of other summer events. We are waiting for Jenny from the block to come through (hint, hint)

    This is a great spot for couples, family gatherings and just hanging out with your friends.

    About the owner

    Jason Alicea developed his passion for food at an early age. Jason’s early exposure to food’s ability to bring people together. Their goal is to make empanadas a household name replacing Taco Tuesday in your family’s weekly line up.
