a bit about Tom

What are you working on now?

Just chilling / learning new things about life

What drives you mad these days?

Our current government and the humidity.

What is the thing that makes you happy?

Eating good food with good people.

When was the last time you cried?

It was during the short pixar film about volcanos that screens before “Inside Out”. I watched it at Rav-Chen Cinema in Dizengoff square, the last old school movie theater left in Tel Aviv.

What’s currently playing on repeat in your earphones?

The Internet’s latest album “Ego Death” on loop.

What was the last movie you’ve seen?

“Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton”, a documentary about the label “Stone’s Throw” screened at the Kuli Alma bar.

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

American Apparel, vintage shops like Flashback, Kassima and the antique and vintage market in Dizengoff Square.

What’s your go-to café in Tel Aviv?

I don’t really do the whole business meeting thing yet but if I did it would probably be Sheleg or Beta and Griga.

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

My favourites are Michal street, Balfour street and the American Colony in Jaffa.

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in Tel Aviv but never actually do?

There are a lot of basic and yuppie things I wish I did more, like walking around the Jaffa Port or Neve Tzedek neighbourhood. I also don’t go to enough galleries.

Who’s your hero and where would you take them out for a bite or a drink?

Harry Belafonte. I’m not really sure what he’s into but I’d probably take him to eat at The Basta and we’ll have a drink at the Port Said.

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

Lunch at Kalamata in the old city in Jaffa, malabi on Jerusalem Blvd. for dessert and then chill at the beach in Ajami.

It’s raining outside but you feel like going out – where would you go?

I’ll probably go for dinner at the super cozy Halutzim 3 restaurant followed by a drink at the Uganda.

It’s raining outside but you feel like going out – where would you go?

It’s raining outside but you feel like going out – where would you go?

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

Hummus and beach all day.

If you were given a choice, mayor of which neighbourhood would you like to be?

Maybe Noga Neighbourhood or the Hashmal garden-Levontin area.

Where in Tel Aviv would you never be caught dead?

Most bars in Dizengoff and Ben Yehuda streets and the beginning of Allenby street. The part of the street that is near the beach.
