I’m generally not one to brag, but I have to say: My weekend was just plain awesome. It feels like I’m hitting my stride in my new city, and I couldn’t be happier with the experiences and memories I’m gaining.
- All You Can Eat Sushi + Sake @ Chinatown East – sushi was delicious, but the unlimited sake bombs reeeally got the night going
- One and One – a new favorite spot, it’s chill upstairs and a thumping club downstairs
- Dancing at Pianos – worth the $5 cover to go upstairs for better music and quicker service
- We hit another bar after that, but I don’t remember the name (sign of a good time)
Saturday: Low-Key Lounging
- Slept in for the first time in weeks and accomplished nothing – oddly OK with this
- Wharf in Murray Hill – visited our friend who works there for pre-gaming
- Brooklyn house party – celebrated friends who graduated from hair school, law school, design school and another who passed the NY State Bar
Sunday: Fun-Filled Finale
- Boozy brunch at The Guilty Goose in Chelsea – very strong mimosas alongside eggs benedict with a jalapeño hollandaise
- Stopped in to see Heroes & Villains at FIT – fascinating facts featured in fun and interesting exhibits
- Made our way home to watch SNL – Kristen Wiig’s return to the stage at 30 Rock did not disappoint
- Phone date with Magz – because she should be celebrated every day for what she put up with from us
Though it went by way too quickly, I had an absolute blast throughout this weekend. I can’t wait to enjoy more of this improved weather and share my finds with you guys. Cheers!
After four tattoos, countless dental procedures and a lifetime of awkwardness, you’d think my pain threshold would be pretty high.
I’ve just learned, though, that’s not the case: My neck’s completely out of whack and I’m being a giant baby about it.
I’m near-tears all day, and sleeping for more than 20 minutes is my latest Everest.
Is it too much to ask for a magic genie to fix me right up? Totally willing to use one of my wishes if it means I can live in peace.
I’m not trying to be dramatic or anything, but I literally feel like I’m going to die. Robin Williams can show up aaaanytime now.
Cannot even handle it.
It’s come to my attention that it’s both Teacher Appreciation Week and Nurse Appreciation Week. (There’s another appreciation week, but I’ll let Seth Meyers explain at 1:05 in.)
Since all of the women in my family are teachers or nurses or teach nursing, it’s only fitting we honor them the Wittyburg way: with someecards!
I wouldn’t be a word nerd if not for the educators in my life making me feel intellectually inadequate.
As someone with too weak a stomach for “Grey’s Anatomy,” I salute you.
Wishing my many influential teacher and nurse friends — and millions more throughout the country — a wonderful week with well-behaved students and friendly patients.
I’d never last a day doing what you do, so may God have mercy on your soul.
As expected, Rachel’s wedding weekend was incredible. With perfect weather, fabulous company and unequivocal love, I was so happy to celebrate their special day in style.
We danced and drank into the night, and a surprise delivery of 100 McDonald’s hamburgers revitalized us all for a few more hours
The happy couple continues their vacation to Antigua while the rest of us return to reality.
Despite some bruises, broken bones (really!) and bloodshot eyes, we’re all thrilled for Rachel and Clint to become man and wife. Cheers!
How can you be mad with a view like that?
Guest book — wishing as many happy years as there are fish in the sea!
Clint makes his walk down the aisle … like a sorority spirit run
Dad greets Rachel, and we’re all crying by now.
Snuck a quick pic of the newlyweds making a getaway.
Blue velvet cake for the couple.
Stealing twinsie away for a few photos.
