Will run for food, but only if you feed me first.

NYC Lovin’

Last week I spent 5 days in my beloved New York City, and I wanted to share some photos with you all! I know I’ve been a bit MIA the past few weeks, but I’ve been up to my eyeballs in work, family, weekend getaways, moving, and doing exciting freelance business. Needless to say, it’s time to give you some love and share about my most recent travels!

Playing Tourist

I don’t often like to play tourist because it feels so unoriginal. But, I did a few things on this trip, which I’m really glad I spent the time doing. We biked up to Central Park, we went to the Met, which I had never done before. It was probably one of the most impressive museums I’ve been to.

Funny story – it’s a museum that is based on donations, and the suggested donation is $25 per person. We walked up to the front desk, and I handed my card over to give a $50 donation. There was a girl standing next to us who was also buying tickets. After she was told that the suggested donation was $25, she said “Yeah, I’ll donate $0.10”, and then she handed her credit card over.

I’ve never seen anything like it! We got a big laugh out of it.

At any rate, we also got to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. I’ve seen it from afar, but we finally took the stroll over. Check out the photos 🙂

The Food

If you know me, then you know that I LOVE food. I love eating it, I love making it, and I love going to new restaurants. We went to Pastis – oh my gosh the foie gras & oysters – Stanton Social – the goat cheese pierogies and onion soup dumplings are out of this world – Freeman’s – awesome for brunch, the Spotted Pig, and Chelsea Market.

We ate really well, and we drank a lot of good wine.

The Hotel

Usually I stay in mid-town with my mom or at Union Square with my sister, but we stayed at The Standard on High Line, and it was awesome! We had 180 degree views of the city, we were located right in the Meatpacking district, and somehow I missed that whole thing about the non-reflective windows ….. LOL.

NYC – we had a great time. I can’t wait to go back!
