Brunch. Bubbles. Dancing. DJ. Every Sunday at City Bistro. Yes, you heard that right! Fight off those Sunday scaries and enjoy Sunday Funday the way we all know how to.

We’re about halfway through the season, which means there are only a few more football Sundays. A legitimate excuse to Sunday Funday, check out all of the specials around town here.

Lindsay grew up in the middle of nowhere, Connecticut, where cell service wasn’t a thing (for real, “No Service” was a constant notice on her phone). But her love for pizza and all things marketing & social media brought her to the big city, and eventually to the other side of the river. Lindsay is on a constant search for the best slice of Buffalo Chicken pizza and the best Bacon, Egg & Cheese on a croissant…Any suggestions?! When she is not eating or drinking, you can find her biking up the Hudson River Walkway or traveling the world. She also swears that death glare isn’t directed at you, she just has a case of RBF. She actually really likes people!
