The Hit List - Readers Studio 2018

Last week, I shared a few pics from my first days in New York. Here are pics from the Readers Studio, the annual tarot conference.

Wednesday night was dinner in Chinatown with some fab tarot peeps. My choice: Rice and Gold.

I had pho dumplings – dumplings filled with pho soup! SO good.

Thursday was the Tarot and Psychology event. I skipped that and headed into the city to play. First stop was breakfast at Veselka with my friend JeMaja. We filled up on pierogies and kielbasa – the breakfast of champions!

Next, I headed off to the Bowie exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum.

Then it was time to meet up with my friend Gillian, the genius behind The Hamilcast podcast, to discuss Game of Thrones theories. I hope she liked my Missandei theory…heh heh.
