About UDA

updownacross is a cultural website and event production “company” founded by Joann Kim Núñez. I am a recently married korean aquarius vata-dosha rat who grew up in Queens and currently reside in Lower East Side, NY. I am obsessed with the world of art, food, tech, design and media. I organize random events and spend my free time obsessing about my lack of free time. I collect, consume, archive, and inventory my experiences. I write, read, draw, cook, craft, walk my dog, ride my bike, recite mantras during a storm, daydream, jog, dance, meditate, perform sun salutations, and sunbathe when possible.

  2. Joann

    I’m determined to blog 1 post a day, so mark the blog as a fave, or better yet just have it pop up every time you open firefox. ha!

  3. the blog is impressive. i especially like the meal pictures and not so much the mCcain bashing…i mean, c’mon, bashing republicans? i read more about food tonight than i ever have in my entire life. i hope you don’t get too fat.

    In the last week I must’ve gained a pound or two but its that aristocratic fat=rich feeling rather than the fat=american obesity feeling. And there will be some SERIOUS amateur republican bashing going on here so get used to it. and thanks for the compliment, talking about food gives me as much joy as talking about sex, I dont know if I should be proud or worried…

    Your fellow Brooklyn foodie,

    P.S. I noticed that you mentioned Nayland Blake in your last post. He has an opening at Location 1 on Dec. 2nd. Check it out. Hopefully, they will show his video “Gorge.”
