Veronica Belmont is a modern-era Renaissance woman. She hosts a weekly tech advice show for Engadget, called Dear Veronica. She's on at least four different podcasts, including the sci-fi/fantasy "Sword and Laser," and the romance-novel extravaganza, "Vaginal Fantasy." Yes, that is the real name. We respect their chutzpah.
She also has well-honed taste in food and drink, as demonstrated below. Zeitgeist and Tonga Room are top picks, and the sandwiches at Salumeria are indeed delicious.
So if you're one of her 1.7 million Twitter followers (seriously?), you can wander the back rooms of Playground Karaoke in hopes of an accidental encounter. Or just go to these places because they're good.
veroncia's "perfect for" Picks
"There are plenty of picnic tables outside for enjoying their famous Bloody Mary's (seriously, there is no better hangover cure). It's a very popular spot on nice days, so make sure you get there early!"
"This place has vegan sushi! Well, everything on the menu is totally vegan, not that you'd be able to really tell. The rolls and ramen are enough to please even the most steadfast carnivore."
"Delicious sandwiches and fresh pasta and green salads to boot. You can also buy meat, cheese and pasta at their incredible deli."
"This is my favorite karaoke place in the city, because the rooms are private, the food isn't horrible, and the service is attentive. Rock out!"
"One of the greatest tiki bars you'll ever have the pleasure of visiting. There's even a tropical rain storm!"
