On a recent visit to Brooklyn, my husband and I met with friends for brunch at Atrium DUMBO (http://www.atriumdumbo.com). The chic restaurant is located right near the Manhattan Bridge in Brooklyn’s trendy DUMBO neighborhood.
Our group of six arrived in time for our reservation and was seated immediately. Atrium DUMBO serves up a contemporary French menu. The dining room has an industrial yet inviting vibe. Our waiter came over shortly after we were seated to take drink orders and ask if we had any questions. I ordered an orange juice and we decided to split an order of buttermilk biscuits with jam and butter for the table.
When our waiter brought out our drinks and biscuits, he said they included extra complimentary biscuits since we were a bigger group. The rich, flaky treat was a great start to the meal. While I was tempted by several entrées, I decided on the omelet with ham, Gruyere and mushrooms with a side salad and toast. As far as omelets go, this was pretty perfect. The eggs were fluffy and had a perfect egg-to-filling ratio.
Despite being packed from the brunch crowd, the restaurant was quiet enough for us all to catch up. Our waiter kept our water glasses full and didn’t rush us through the meal.
Atrium DUMBO is a great spot for brunch in Brooklyn.

Quietly on the rise is the cousin of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, known as cannabidiol, or CBD. THC is the more well-known component of cannabis; however, it is illegal in many states, so CBD has risen in popularity as a legal option. Stores selling CBD continue to pop up in major cities and towns.
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
Choosing a summer vacation destination is rarely a last-minute endeavor. Depending on your career, school or schedule, summer can be that one season to let loose, vacation and completely get away for a little while, making it a fun one to plan for.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
The Fear of Missing Out greatly affects students who study abroad. For months students look forward to the countries they will call home, whether for a semester or a year, and then after they arrive, the loneliness and separation sets in. It’s difficult to be away from family and friends for a long amount of time and studying abroad is no exception, no matter how badly a student wants to fall in love with their city.
