Girls is very close to returning to HBO for its third season! To help the wait for January 12, I read The Unofficial Girls Guide to New York, a new book that provides a guide to the all the restaurants, bars, parks, and more where the characters have spent the first two seasons.
If you’re a New Yorker, you may think those Sex and the City bus tours are the devil’s handiwork. If that is the case, you’ll probably hate this book, too. But don’t be a hater, honey! The Unofficial Girls Guide, by Judy Gelman and Peter Zheutlin, provides a map and description of every major neighborhood featured on the show (so a whole lotta Brooklyn), along with photos and info about every bar, hotel, and more where the characters stopped. Plus, some of the spots even include recipes for their food or drinks.
There are also interviews that provide some nice behind-the-scenes color to the show, like a Q&A with AndrewAndrew, the iPad DJs from the cocaine episode. Yes, they’re real! If you’re a super fan of the show, or if you just want an alternative, younger guide to New York, it’s definitely worth flipping through this one. The book is out now, and you can buy it here.
