Welcome back to all my fellow students and faculty as well as my colleagues who work with me on the OpenLab’s “The Buzz”. When I found out that I would be the first one to post this semester, I continually pondered on what to write about and decided to share the happenings that occurred this summer for me. As summer is slowly coming to a close, autumn will soon begin but before then there are still some last minute activities we can pursue. I had the opportunity to visit a few gelato shops this summer and I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did.

Popbar is a small shop that is located in the West Village that offers an array of popsicles which consists of handcrafted artisan gelato that is delicately placed on a stick to resemble a popsicle. I was thrilled by the potency of their flavors, I had the coconut bar which had such a strong, captivating flavor intensity that I felt as though I was trapped on a tropical island with a gorgeous beach front view and sand between my toes as I indulged in eating the bar until, of course, all that was left was a lonely stick, and I was suddenly back in crowded train on my way home.


  1. Amorino

Address: 60 University Pl, New York, NY 10003 and 162 8th Ave, New York, NY 10011

Amorino sells a large variety of artisan gelato that can easily be molded and shaped into an artistic masterpiece that resembles a flower. With multiple locations, they are easily accessible despite where you are located. The pricing is reasonable even though they are located in Manhattan. The workers are extremely patient with you as you *ponder which flavors to choose from their large selection. Then, they use these specialized gelato scoops which enables them to craft your chosen gelato into a delicious art form that is truly unbelievable.

I had the honor of being able to work at Citi Field this summer which allowed me to gain a better understanding of what occurs in a commercial kitchen to serve a larger scale of guests. I got to train as a chef and learned many new techniques while having a lot of fun being able to meet new people each and every home stand. Being that I been to a few New York Mets games, it was great to experience both sides of what happens at Citi Field as a guest as well as an employee. And, if you would like to enjoy watching a Mets game, McDonalds is offering a New York Mets Buy One Get One ticket deal offer for everyone.

Finally, I will be attending the Club Fair next Thursday, September 10th and I will be bringing a few treats for fellow students to freely eat while we describe the importance of “The Buzz” in the college as well as its impact. I cannot wait to share the news of “The Buzz” to other students especially the freshman who may not be informed of our public forum.
