Living in and around Manhattan can be incredibly stressful, especially on the body.  It is good that at least once a month we indulge ourselves in something that will be us feel better physically and spiritually.  Spa Castle, in College Point, Queens, is the perfect example of the “Treat Yo Self” mentality in that it provides an incredible amount of amenities to enjoy and recharge your batteries in doing so.

Pergola is a great example of a fantastic restaurant to head to that isn’t too far away from areas of Manhattan that are truly popular like Times Square and Penn Station for instance.  The bilevel bistro is located in the fabulous flower district, where its location once was an actual flower shop that has now transformed into a Mediterranean feast of sorts for thousands of followers to enjoy.  This past Thursday, they threw a big party to celebrate some new things they have planned for the summer that include Petal Pops, Picnic Crates, and more!

I first met the dashingly handsome Liam Knox a couple of months ago, when he was in Manhattan for the Black Party and all of its debauchery.  We sat down for what became a three hour lunch (the best, in my opinion) where the TitanMen exclusive told me all about himself and where he got to where he is.  He, just like many of the other men in the industry that i have met and interviewed, has a fantastic backstory to him that elevated not only his charm and good looks but above all his heart to a level that I don’t think I have seen before.
