Uncovering Europe's best budget hotels since 2001.
Chip Pate is a marketing and public relations consultant who has spent way too much money attending theater. He supports regional theater back home in North Carolina's Research Triangle Region and travels to New York City several times each year to catch new productions and eat pastrami. His "Top 5" New York productions in recent years are "Venus in Fur," "Red-Eye to Havre de Grace," "Next to Normal," "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and Fiasco Theater's "Cymbeline." (Followed closely by "The Book of Mormon.") The local celebrities he'd most like to meet for lunch are Nina Arianda, Tim Gunn and The Bowery Boys.
