Spree Style with Erin Habes: Sandy survival tips
Cabin fever? Hurricane Sandy has us all in the palm of her hand. Not only have you memorized everyone’s Facebook status and finished watching the fourth season of “Breaking Bad”, but now you’re addicted to the HBO series “Girls.” It’s time to go beyond the rain and bring on the Internet surfing extravaganza.
Step 1: Shop on
National and local retailers are surely taking advantage of the hurricane frenzy, with a blink of an eye Modern/ Nostalgia was offering 15% off all sweaters until Saturday and American Apparel just sent out a “Sandy Sale” email offering 20% off if you live in the hardest hit states. (Brilliant marketing might I add.)
Though national sales might be sweet, let’s face it, taking advantage of the local retail is a win-win with instant gratification. It’s a perfect way to kill time on your day off!
Step 2: Be a critic
Bob Saget might as well be reading all of our Facebook updates for “Funniest Home Video.” From personal hurricane soundtracks to the impressed (and not so impressed) critics, to the “selfie” shots of people going stir crazy, watching humanity unfold on social media during times like this takes sitting on your couch to a "whole-nother-level."
Step 3: Laugh it out
When in doubt, always turn to the "Golden Girls" for answers and a good hard laugh!
Step 4: Stuff your face
You know you’re crazy when you drive to your favorite takeout restaurant at the height of the storm of the century. Tucked away, past Amherst Street on Niagara Street, you will find some of the best Asian food you will ever eat. Don’t stop a woman when she is on a mission. Am I right? Put Sun Restaurant at the top of your Sandy Storm essentials!
Step 5: Repeat
Brace yourself, repeat, and stay dry Buffalo!
