It's Memorial Day Weekend! Finally, a 3-day weekend to relax!
Here's what I've been up to the past few months...
A really cool happy hour from 2Beans in NYC - a fruit and cheese platter and a glass of wine for less than $20!
A beautiful rose
Went to the Blue Note to check out Bobby McFerrin
Glorious spring sunrise!
Mussels at Flex Mussels....on point.
And do NOT get me started on their spectacular donuts. We got Peanut Butter & Jelly, Chocolate, Fluffernutter, and Salted Caramel. These are life-changing. That is all.
Loving the brick, teal color, and chandeliers at Sorellina.
Massive paella at Cuba
Enjoying some jazz at BFlat
Met Jessica Merchant from How Sweet Eats! She held a workshop at Word Bookstore in Williamsburg and we drank wine while making a sea salt hairspray and lip scrubs from her latest cookbook. Yes, from a cookbook! Don't mind my awkward stance below. She's so tiny and I was trying to do a bit of a squat...Nailed it!
As I was leaving, I accidentally (on purpose) ran into Peter Pan Donuts. I may have purchased a few donuts to go.
The fam came to visit and we went to The Ainsworth for dinner. I can't even explain how amazing these brussels sprouts taste!
My mom decided to have a mimosa at brunch...
Drove into the city to catch Nicholas Payton at Smoke. He was fantastic!
Brunch time = chicken + waffles time at Sweetchick
Post-brunch stroll through Brooklyn Botanic Gardens while the cherry blossoms were poppin'.
Birthday cocktails at Boudoir
Road trip up to Hudson Valley's Palaia Winery.
Beautiful views at Benmarl Winery.
Took a tour of the Benmarl wine vault. So many dusty bottles!
When college friends come to town, you brunch at L'Amico.
Music. Is. Love.
I'm kinda sorta getting back into runninng. Foggy early morning views of the NYC skyline.
I honestly can't get enough of shrimp and grits lately. Picked this up at Peaches.
Speakeasy above a Five Guys restaurant in NYC.
Last week I did a yoga class at the Departed Soles brewery in Jersey City. Now I'm obsessed....
Dinner with a dear friend at Cucharamama
But seriously...these empanadas!
My most favorite donut in NYC. Hands down.
I love walking into Goorin Brothers.
