WO: Weekly Obsessions

We’re almost halfway through 2014, people. Can you believe it? I thought summer days were supposed to be long and lazy, but I was apparently mistaken.

  1. Cousins Take Over!: 2 of my cousins from Florida visited all last week, and they covered more ground than I thought humanly possible. From Broadway shows (four!) to Yankee Stadium, they took Manhattan by storm.
  2. FIFA World Cup: Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know the World Cup is providing tons of highlights and heartache. From the hottest players to this one who thinks he’s Hannibal Lecter, the drama is nonstop. And, of course: USA! USA! USA!
  3. “The People’s Couch”: I’m a sucker for all things Bravo, and this little gem is no exception. Watch various groups of people watch TV — sounds silly, right? Well, it is … but it’s also incredibly entertaining. New episodes air Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST.
  4. Baby Girl Argues with Bulldog: This just might be the cutest baby video (except for ones with my niece) ever. Her hand gestures really sell the point that she is NOT happy with the family pet. Enjoy!

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?
