Currently, Alcatraz Island tickets will get you free entrance to its Large: Ai Wei Wei art exhibit. I had never been to Alcatraz Island, also known as The Rock (not the actor), which made this even more of an interesting day excursion for us. Prior to this day, I had read literature my friend left on my desk about the island and its history of escapes to get myself psyched up.
My husband introduced me to Sophie while we were in Toronto for Christmas 2013. Sweet Sophie and I hit it off immediately as we both had interests in fashion and startups. Sophie was currently playing around with a really cool project of her own called Insepia: Flash Fashion. While I was in NYC, I wanted to check out what was on her desk! Boy was I blown away.
