Weekend Recap

It appears I’ve fallen even deeper in love with New York than I’d realized. Ain’t that the way it goes? I sure hope my main squeeze will continue to love me back.

This sums it up pretty well.

Summer Fridays Begin!

  • Celebrated with a LOT of rounds at 169 Bar – the $3 popcorn snack is kind of a rip-off, but it’ll do when you’re drinking bourbon lemonades for eight hours
  • Walked to Fontana’s – ordered pizza while attempting to watch the Pacers-Heat game … everyone expects the Floridian to root for LeBron, but I was too busy checking out Dwyane Wade

Seen it with my own eyes.

Saturday Soccer … at a Baseball Stadium

  • Scored free tickets to see Manchester City vs. Chelsea at Yankee Stadium
  • Walked over to The Dugout while the crowds cleared out
  • Took our large and in charge group to Swig in the Upper East Side – new favorite for the Irish staff
  • Hit Wharf in Murray Hill again, because we love our friend who works there
  • Ended the night at Company, a bar I don’t generally enjoy but put up with anyway

When Brunch Becomes Last Call

  • Boozy brunch at The Sunburnt Cow – one of NYC’s Top 10 according to the Google, but service could have used some help. Food was pretty good, but “bottomless” is relative to waiting 40 minutes for a refill #firstworldproblems
  • Visited our other friend for the end of her shift at The Flying Puck
  • Walked about 40 blocks to East Village superstar Off the Wagon
  • Hit Fiddlesticks for another round of shots
  • Pizza pit stop for our friend – no need for me to eat when I had two eggs six hours prior
  • Managed to get over to Good Company in Billyburg at 9 p.m. and stayed till last call

You really can’t complain with a view like that.

Monday Funday

  • Finally, the sun showed up! So we laid out at Central Park, in a spot called Sheep’s Meadow (not “Sheet Meadow” like I thought I overheard)
  • Out to Bushwick for our friends’ BBQ

… And I lived through all of that to tell the tale! What are the best summertime spots in your city?

    Guess I will have to rest up a bit to be able to keep up with your fast-paced lifestyle when I visit in July!

    I thought you were from Florida. You take a quick trip to NY. I lived there when I was really young so obviously a lot has changed. Glad you had fun.

    Oh gosh, I could tell I would just love New York. This is going to be my first summer working in downtown Chicago, so I’m excited to explore the options!

    • Wittyburg says :

      You definitely would love it here! I’ve only been to Chicago once, but there are so many options I’ll need to return again soon.

      My favorite stops were in Wrigleyville — good on the budget and for the people watching 🙂

      • Katie says :

        Since I’m not a Cubs fan, I may burst into flames in Wrigleyville, unfortunately.

      • Wittyburg says :

        Oh no! My college bestie is a huge White Sox fan, so I understand the hostility toward outsiders.

        I was raised a Yankees fan and it feels so right to finally be a part of it (New York, New York) 😉
