How She Revels: Erin Mantz

I am especially excited to host 80s trivia nights on Revel!

I was the Hickory Farms poster girl for their Christmas 1980 ad campaign!

Host Highlight
Age: 51
Location: Washington, DC

What do you do for work?

I’m the Founder and Editorial Director of Gen X Girls Grow Up, a blog and online community that celebrates the pop culture memories, ‘80s and ‘70s nostalgia of our “growing up” years – and the traits and times that helped make us who we are today! You can find us at here and "Gen X Girls Grow Up" on Facebook.

What do you do for fun?

I spend time with my sons; write; walk and play with my Cocker Spaniel, Hank; go out for sushi, Mexican food and cocktails with friends; get lost in television series.

Last great book you read?

Brat: An ‘80s Story, by Andrew McCarthy.

Last Google search?

“allergies vs. cold”

Tell us something surprising about yourself?

Current favorite piece of useless trivia?

I can tell you about every “Law & Order SVU” episode – all 23 seasons of them.

Best new discovery?

It’s a tie. Pilates. (New to me. I resisted checking it out for years, despite my mom telling me, many times, that I would love it.) And this Sea Salt Neroli linen & room spray by Caldrea. The scent transports me.

What are you excited to host or attend (or both!) on Revel?

I am especially excited to host 80s trivia nights on Revel! I am also excited to attend in-person events in the DC/MD/VA area involving hiking, music, art or wine.
