What sorts of hobbies do you have?

Drew: Playing sports—basketball, volleyball, golf—and coin collecting. Also, going to the gym.

Jonathan: Magic. It’s been a lifelong thing. I’m into the memorabilia, and I do charity shows.

Drew: And we both love music in general.

What was your first concert?

Jonathan: Janet Jackson.

Drew: Puff Daddy & the Family.

What’s a typical Saturday night activity?

Jonathan: Movie and sushi, or an escape room.

Drew: A movie and dinner out.

Name a favorite restaurant.

Drew: Pizzeria Mozza in L.A. The crispy goat cheese is to die for.

Jonathan: Gordon Ramsay Steak at the Paris Las Vegas hotel.

What do you like doing with friends?

Drew: We’ll have people over. At the Vegas house, there’s giant Jenga and Connect 4 in the backyard, and a game room with every kind you can imagine, including ones that make you act like an idiot. The best!

Exercise Go-To?

Jonathan: On weekends I try to hit the courts and play basketball or tennis. I’m not half bad!”

Drew: “Since I’m in a different city every few months, I have a ClassPass membership, which lets me try different fitness classes, like barre or hot yoga.”

Both: “We’ll play pickup basketball or beach volleyball with our crew whenever we can.” —Drew


Jonathan: “The song I can’t get out of my head: ‘Delicate’ by Taylor Swift.”

Drew: “I listen to a few podcasts and especially like Terry Gross’s awesome interviews on NPR’s ‘Fresh Air.’ ”

Both: "When friends come over for karaoke, there’s a good chance we’ll sing something from Grease. I do Olivia Newton-John and Jonathan is John Travolta.” —Drew


Jonathan: "Is there a better TV show to binge-watch than HBO’s Game of Thrones?”

Drew: “My favorite movie is The Last of the Mohicans. It’s beautifully written and acted.”

Weekend activity?

Jonathan: “A friends-night-in staple for me is fondue. It’s all about the presentation!”

Drew: “On Sundays, [my wife] Linda and I hit flea markets and hole-in-the-wall shops for coins and antiques.”

Reading material?

Jonathan: “The book we’re loving right now is the kids’ book we just wrote, of course.”

Video game?

Drew: “Spyfall is such a fun game because you can see your friends try to be strategic. Some people would make the worst spies!”

Sports team?

Jonathan: “It’s great that Vegas finally has a hockey team. The Golden Knights are doing amazingly. Now we just need an NBA team.”
