a bit about Edie

What are you working on?

On legalizing cannabis.

What drives you mad these days?

Our current government, rude people and assholes with power taking advantage of the weak.

What makes you happy?

My current job, my friday afternoon naps and when it’s raining.

When was the last time you cried?

A week ago, while watching Making a Murderer. The justice system is imperfect and people with no means are the ones who suffer the most. It happens everywhere all the time.

What is playing in your earphones nowadays?

Fleetwood Mac, Broken Bells, Fleet Foxes and Vampire Weekend.

What was the last movie you went to?

Black Mass, it was terrible.

When it’s time for a new wardrobe, where do you go?

Mainly online, I try to avoid fast fashion so second hand or fashion designer Sarah Braun.

What’s your go-to café in Tel Aviv?

Cafelix. They have the best coffee, sweet people and it’s right around the corner.

Where’s your favourite street or neighbourhood to wander in Tel Aviv?

That would be Kerem Hateimanim neighborhood, Bialik st. and Levinski Market.

What do you LOVE to do in the city but never actually do?

Probably walking aimlessly – there’s always somewhere I need to be. Also jogging first thing in the morning. I never jog and if i did it would probably never be in the morning.

Who’s your hero and where would you take them out to eat or drink in Tel Aviv?

Oh wow, I don’t know, I guess I find inspiration in many people. Whoever he or she will be, I would take them to the one obvious place and that would be Abu hasan. Then maybe a stroll on the beach toward Neve Tzedek, stopping by for ice cream at Anita’s, finishing with dinner at Joz ve Loz.

What would make a perfect day in the sun for you?

That would be riding my bicycle.

It’s raining for days and you’re sick of staying at home – where would you go?

Any excuse to stay in and watch something great on TV or read, I’m in. If you twist my arm then I’ll probably put on my rain boots and go for coffee around my hood.

What’s a place in Tel Aviv you feel like only you know about?

Ya’akov Garden! It’s a small urban garden by Habima, the national theatre and every time I’m passing by, it feels like the first time.

If tomorrow was your last day in Tel Aviv before you left for good, how would you spend it?

I’d probably be too busy and distracted about what the future holds, but at the end I’ll meet my besties for dinner at North Abraxas.

If you were given a choice, mayor of which neighborhood would you be?

My neighborhood, Levinski. I’d have more street light around and I’ll give tickets to all those crazy annoying drivers who use their horns for no reason at all.

What’s the place in Tel Aviv you’ll never be caught dead in?

That would most definitely be the cafés and restaurants by the beach up north.

What’s the thing you love doing that isn’t work, relationship or family related?

Hanging with my friends or stay in reading or watching something good or trashy on TV.

When you feel like going on a night out, what’s the first place you usually consider going to?

Most of my friends live near me so we probably go to Beit Romano/JozVeLoz or North Abraxas. just cause it’s fun, yummy and a few minutes walk.
