Bob was awesome, per usual and took me to New York for my birthday this year. We specifically flew out to see Newsies on broadway, and it was great! Everything I could hope for and more - go see it now! We of course did other things, so here, in pictures is our visit to New York.
We arrive! Driving into the city is so pretty. (I know it's blurry, we were in a cab, give me a break.)
We enjoy a drink with Holly and Bernardo at Shervins Cafe. It's small but cute and the bartender was nice.
After drinks we got lobster rolls at Luke's Lobster. Soooo yummy!
The next day we met up with Rich, at his office downtown.
We ate at Hill Country BBQ and it was delicious! How come NYC can managed do to BBQ right but SF is still working on it?
I found a couch I want at an awesome salvage/vintage store. Bob said I couldn't have it because it's ugly. (Okay, so maybe it was ugly AND it was in NYC.)
We enjoyed il laboratorio del gelato, they have butternut squash gelato and it is awesome!
Then we met up with Evan for delicious sushi at Jewel Bako.
Great Jones Cafe, super yummy. Our friend Evan suggest it. The sweet potato fries are delish.
A view from the Chelsea High Line.
Spooky experience on the NYC subway, it was totally empty!
We rented bikes and rode around Central Park.
Enjoying a cool beverage at San Marzano.
Walking across the Williamsburg bridge.
Beautiful view of the city at sunset from the ferry. We rode from Brooklyn to Manhattan.
We went to see The Black Keys at Madison Square Garden, and there was a giant advertisement with David Beckham on it. Crazy!
We celebrated my birthday lunch at Lombardi's. So delicious.
We took the train to upstate New York to visit Rich and Viv's awesome home.
Bob and Rich bonding.
We felt like the Kennedy's at this amazing home out in the country.
Delicious french toast from Frankie's.
We went to the Momofuku Noodle Bar and I had the Kimchi Noodles. They were absolutely amazing. Really great flavor and a huge portion.
They dip the cones in different sprinkles and other toppings at the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop.
I was so confused! As the Clash would say, "should I stay or should I go!?"
Overall it was a great trip. We rented an AirBnB in Lower East Side and were able to really easily walk everywhere. We had fun with awesome friends, and most importantly, I had a great 29th birthday.
Love and kisses,
