This weekend I headed to NYC to visit some friends from college and to celebrate a friend’s birthday. My day on Friday started with one thing leading to another. It was literally one of those days that you really expected everything to go wrong. I headed out to a lunch meeting ready to get something right for the day and felt really good walking out. The meeting went really well, and when I got to my car….
Yup, left the tailgate open the entire 2 hours. At that point, I was really ready to get on the bus to NYC.
On Saturday, we woke up and met with some friends for brunch at Elmo. The weather was really comfortable warm so we sipped on mimosas and enjoyed the sunshine. The food was fantastic and I got my first sunburn of the season. Really wasn’t expecting that.
After brunch, we took a long walk down to Soho to do some shopping. In our travels, we stopped off at Georgetown Cupcakes. If you haven’t heard of them before, Georgetown Cupcakes is originally from Washington DC and was featured on a reality TV show. It is extremely famous in DC and has just recently made it’s was to Boston I heard!! But their cupcakes are unbelievable. The frosting and the cake itself have such unique flavors that it really is worth stopping by. You can even order them online and they will ship them to you. WORTH IT.
How good do those look?! Red Velvet, Mint Chocolate Chip, Salted Caramel and Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge. YUM.
After the long walk, we got ready for dinner at Lucky Cheng’s, which is a drag show as well as restaurant. It is such a good time, especially with a big group of girls.
We had so much fun watching the show. The next morning, we met at brunch at Southern Hospitality, which may have been my favorite brunch spot in NYC thus far. It was a cute little country place with a live band that sang without microphones, amps, anything. Just guitars and their voices.
The menu, was straight from the south. Check out the Chicken Wings and Waffles!
Really not something to eat often, but it’s better than you think!
We munched on some of the best fried pickles I have ever had while I waited for my Omelet, which I covered in their own BBQ sauce.
I would recommend anyone give this place a try. It’s really different and the food is fantastic.
Now that I’m back, I’m really going to behave. Healthy eats for the rest of the week!
