Hello, Seamless moms and dads! I am Kathy Zucker – Hoboken, NJ mom of three little ones, magazine editor and entrepreneur. I am writing this inaugural post at 3 a.m. because that’s the way I roll. When you work for yourself, that whole pesky sleep thing just gets in the way. Those Shorty Awards don’t win themselves, ya know.
When I wake up at 3 a.m., I am usually starving. Staging a kitchen raid in a condo in the middle of the night is tricky. If I don’t have something ready to pop in the microwave and whisk back to my home office, then I skip eating since it’s not worth taking the risk of waking up the entire household – the kids have school in the morning, and I want time to myself both now and when they are out the door. Waking them up is a surefire recipe for a sleepy morning and nonstop begging to stay home.
So I fire up the Seamless homepage to see what’s on tap at this unholy hour. The first thing I see is the last order I placed.
Unfortunately, Asia Cuisine is closed. Which is too bad because I really could go for another order of their beef chow fun. Huh, think I’ll save that under the “Favorite Meals” tab.
So I mozy on over to the “Find Your Food” tab to see what IS open at 3 a.m. in Hoboken. And discover the answer is…
Shoot. If I’d woken up an hour earlier, I could have ordered pizza.
So what opens at 7am?
Drool. Bagels on the Hudson. Bagels and coffee for breakfast, please!
I especially like that I can order coffee the way I like it – light and sweet.
Good to know I can get organic milk if I ever have a baby bottle emergency.
Why, yes, I am eco-friendly.
Starting to run out of steam, so it’s time to curl up on my office futon until the buzzer rings at 7 a.m. with my bagels, coffee, pancakes and bacon. At $16 for six people, including tip, ordering breakfast from Seamless may become a regular treat in the Zucker household. G’night!
