EPISODE 2: Tim Manley in The Nook

Wow! What a cozy zone! Tim Manley – author, storyteller, and my dear, dear friend – invites you and me into The Nook, a sacred, sumptuous, walk-in closet space, home to many a bro-sesh, in his Astoria apartment. We’ve been friends for a long time and have spent that friendship supporting each other’s creativity. Please enjoy this celebration of fraternity and coziness!

EPISODE 1: Nicolette Dixon at Saraghina

Nicolette Dixon – the lady that I love – drives me in our Car2Go to one of our favorite spots: Saraghina Brooklyn, a quaint Italian restaurant in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Through the din of the brunch crowd, we find our rhythm, feel the love, and settle into the first ever Cozy Zone with Ben Weber.


Welcome to Cozy Zone with Ben Weber

Hey Everybody! My name is Ben Weber. I’m an artist, educator, comedian, arts administrator, and a lover of cozy zones.

What’s a cozy zone?

A COZY ZONE is a real place where you feel safe, warm, creative, inspired, relaxed, abundant, and brave.

One of my first cozy zones was on the couch with my dad, snuggling under an afghan, watching “Ren & Stimpy”.

In the inaugural episode, I’m sitting at my very messy desk in my Brooklyn home that I share with the lady that I love, Nicolette. I set my creative intentions for COZY ZONE.
