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?

30 Days of Thanks (The Finale)

Thanksgiving Day has come and gone — hopefully your holiday was spent with good food and even better people. Here’s the conclusion of the 30 Days of Thanks series:

  • 22. A functional car, as Jimmy has been pushed to his breaking point and I’m rocking Magz’ sweet hatchback Focus while he gets fixed.
  • 23. Supermarkets, which accommodated many last-minute stops and continue to provide a platform for charitable donations throughout the season.
  • 24. Weekends, for reminding us to take a step back and breathe. Sleeping in doesn’t hurt, either :).
  • 25. Laughter, because it makes my world go ‘round. I have a loud, unapologetic laugh, and I adore anyone and anything that brings it out.
  • 26. Sportsmanship, which I relied upon after losing nearly every board and card game played this weekend.
  • 27. You, for inspiring me to keep going (even when writer’s block sets in). I appreciate each and every person reading this for their support of this creative outlet.
  • 28, 29 & 30. Faith, hope and love — the greatest of which is love. I can’t imagine what the world would be like without the simplest gestures of compassion and care.

It’s absolutely a goal of mine in this next year to remember more things like these 30, rather than the things that get me down. Look around — you may be surprised how many blessings surround your life.
