Welcome to the Weird Food Club website!
I’m Alexa Mae Asperin and I’m a graduate journalism student at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. This website was launched in conjunction with a special project for my social media class where my beat / specialization is strange, odd food around New York City. Through crowdsourcing efforts on Twitter and GoogleDocs, I was able to gather some suggestions and ideas for guidance from fellow foodies who recommended some pretty strange things. I’ve compiled every step of my journey on this site through videos, a handy map, and also linked on Foursquare.
I’m continuing my food journey around New York City and during this summer in Southern California for the strangest, most unique and interesting food and drinks. Your recommendations and feedback are more than welcome! Visit the “Share” page to add your suggestions and connect with me via Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Foursquare, Yelp or Pinterest. You can also check out my personal website for my latest journalistic endeavors. Thanks for visiting!
