  1. Alexa,
    I’d love to have you visit our Westchester store…Posh Pretzels. We are a skip from the city but have customers come to our store every week and ship all throughout our beloved NYC each and everyday!


  2. Hey Alexa,
    My name is Sophia. I was a year ahead of you at Birch! I love your instagram!
    So I need your advice: One of my friends (from birch actually) is getting married and I am in charge of picking the brunch spot. She is vegan so I am looking for a place that has options for her with a good drink special.
    Do you have some suggestions?
    Thank you!
    Sophia Popovits
