Lauren on

I’ve been burning the midnight oil a bit lately.


In Caffeine We Trust

Recently I have had the opportunity to contribute to, a fresh and fun local news source. For years, I have checked daily because they always have the scoop on restaurant news and local events. has always had me covered on fun events for the weekend, honest dining reviews, and behind-the-scenes peeks at local happenings. They have also always had a great collection of humor and lifestyle pieces for entertainment. Does anyone remember the journalistic magic that was “A Shot in the Dark?”

In case you haven’t caught my last few pieces for, here are some links to the most recent ones. I also have some fun articles planned for the next few weeks, so make sure you look out for my new byline: Lauren Downey. Enjoy!
