We’re going to…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably aware that Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is under way. For the next few days, all eyes will trained on Lincoln Center — from bloggers with delusions of grandeur to the fashion elite. Celebrity sighting…who wore it best…is that a homeless person or an Olsen twin? There’s nothing like Fashion Week in New York City.


We’re eating…

Pearl & Ash

This stylish Nolita spot really puts the “wine” in “wine and dine,” boasting an extensive, quality selection. As seen in previous editions of Native Approved, the New York Natives office is a fan of the small plate/share plate style of dining, and Pearl & Ash is no exception…after all, why pick one dinner when you can have several? Speaking of which, the cod with coconut, thai basil, and lemongrass is especially nice.

We’re watching…

NFL Week 1

If the NFL preseason is dress rehearsal, then week one is opening night. It’s a football fan’s dream, and with no teams on bye, there’s a game for you, no matter your allegiance. So, put fresh batteries in the remote, stock the fridge with beer, and order extra ranch with the buffalo wings — it’s time for Monday Night Football.

We’re listening to…
