WO: Weekly Obsessions

The best and worst part of a long weekend, for me, is getting back into the workweek routine. For example, you may think it’s Tuesday all day until you finally wise up around 4 p.m. that OH SHIIIIZ, it’s Hump Day!

Where’s this guy when I need him?

  1.  Florida Necklace: My college bestie gifted this awesome state pride necklace to me, after trolling my Pinterest for ideas. Smart lady — I couldn’t be more in love with it!
  2. Amity Hall: Bottomless brunch is a must for most people my age, and this little gem in the West Village does not disappoint. Check out the Bloody Mary bar before ordering the Benny Hill or a stuffed burger. Yummm.
  3. Imported Bubbly by essie: I’ve searched high and low for this nail color for nearly six weeks and FINALLY found it at a Duane Reade recently. It’s quickly become my fave nail color of the year.
  4. “We Can’t Stop” – Postmodern Jukebox: I got sick of Miley mania about 10 seconds in, but I’m so in love with this cover from Postmodern Jukebox and The Tee-Tones.  It really classes up that trash bag of a Hannah Montana mess. Check out more of their stuff here.

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?
