It was so great to lunch with you and Ruth at The Pavilion for the Mimi Sheraton event. I just received my September issue of Gourmand New York and was thoroughly impressed upon first glance; you do a fine job of curating the magazine with a wide spectrum of topics and content that comes across as very intelligent and well-researched (I especially love the "Cocktails to Tote" piece!).
I'd like to pitch you the idea of contributing a column to Gourmand New York—something along the lines of "The Dishy Missy on the Street," where I'd 'guide' your readers' night(s) out in the city. i. e.) Start out by viewing X exhibit at ABC Gallery; followed by cocktails at Z Bar; then dinner at 123 Kitchen; ending with a late-night jazz performance at 99 Venue.
In short, I'd love to be a part of your magazine! I hope that you're doing well and that you're enjoying your end-of-summer, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
P. S. As requested, I've attached a copy of my current résumé.
