knows how to fly small planes (seriously, his parents had an aviation business when he was growing up), majored in Philosophy, his name Brendan Gibbons, and he is this week’s Guest Hunter. Brendan graduated from Fordham Univeristy in 2009 and has since been working in the city. He recently shared some of his favorite things with us, and here’s the list:
Music: recent finds/picks/new favorites include Austra, St.
Vincent, Miike Snow. Old favorites include Fleetwood Mac, Aimee Mann,
Arcade Fire, Joni Mitchell.
Television: Parks & Rec, 30 Rock, Portlandia, Mad Men, True Blood, Friday Night Lights, The West Wing.
Artist: Andrew Wyeth.
Newest gadget find: the “Zite” app on the iPhone. (It lets you see all
your favorite news stories in one place.)
So it’s evident from his list of favs he’s got great taste and a ton to share, so keep on reading to learn more about this cool guy’s picks – from restaurtants to good fitting clothes, you’re bound to learn some good stuff!
Definitely Keurig coffee maker. Got a deluxe edition for my mom
for Christmas, and she loves it (and so do I when I’m visiting). You
can even get an attachment to put in your own kind of coffee to make
one cup. It’s so easy to make coffee now!
I really love this peppermint body scrub available at Whole
Foods. You have to actually scoop it out yourself into a little box.
It takes all the dead skin off.
I love the scents of Jo Malone. They have newer scents for
fashionistas and old favorites for mom’s! You can also mix and match
My favorite designer is Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen. Everything
fits me perfectly. People stop me on the street to ask where I got the
clothes. Especially the pants. It’s a tall/skinny guy’s dream. If I’m
in a more expensive mood I pick Marc by Marc Jacobs and Nudie Jeans
Co. Also, Canada Goose jackets are SO warm (pictured in my photo).
I’ll never wear a different winter coat.
Favorite sushi restaurant, Nana Sushi on 3rd and 34th. They have
amazing specialty rolls. Favorite italian restaurant, Umberto’s for
seafood. Zero Otto Nove for more traditional italian. Both in the
Bronx, obviously, not their downtown counterparts. (Both are located
on arthur avenue in the bronx.)
Fast Food: Can’t get enough of Baja Fresh. Does not seem like fast food at all.
My friends and I can never get enough of The New Museum on The
Bowery. They host one artist/exhibit at a time and it’s usually pretty
‘out-there’. Very interesting sometimes and a great weekend activity.
