Hello New York!!!

Sorry for my absence yesterday! I spent the better part of the day packing and shipping orders, seeing my daughter off, then running to my flight! I landed this morning at 1AM EST [I leave tomorrow evening], and against my better judgment hopped in a cab with a cabby that literally took me for the ride of my life. Break. Gas. Break. Gas, all the way to Manhattan. 

I got to my hotel room by 2AM and had a taste for a burger and fries...

 By 2:15 my burger was gone and I was off to sleep....

I'm going to check out FELA tonight, is there anything I should try and squeeze in while I'm here?

  1. Enjoy Fela, I'm going to see it before the year ends.

    If you have a chance, visit Delta Grill on 48th Street and 9th Ave. Southern Creole done right along with great blues music.

  7. You should come out to Brooklyn. Where in Brooklyn? Anywhere! It's the Mecca of art, fashion, music and entrepreneurship. From what I read on your blog, it's right up your alley. :)

  10. f you want to take in a really amazing and unique show, check out FUERZA BRUTA @ The Daryl Roth theater in Union Square. For shopping, I'd head to the lower east side. Great vintage finds, ENJOY!

  11. For shopping...check out B'way. Just literally walk down Broadway, and you'll find the cutest boutiques there.
    For eats...come to Brooklyn and enjoy the food at Sugarcane. I absolutely adore the Sorrel Martinis. (No I don't work there...just a fan of the place)

    Have fun...can't wait to see your NYC pics.

  18. I cosign on all the suggestions the ladies have. Especially Shopping in SoHo since you love vintage this is the perfect place for you. You should have had a natural meet up for all your NYC blog fans. I love your blog it would be nice to meet you in person.

  22. Definitely go to Eataly - just opened and the cook in you will jump for joy. Also, you gotta go to the Creperie - 135 Ludlow Street, in the east village, nearby Promme Frites and Negril (mentioned up top) - best crepes EVER!

    Have fun at FELA.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Creperie is 112 Macdougal. sorry about that, hope you go see!

  24. FELA is absolutely FANTASTIC!! I agree with post above about Negril's...you will not be disappointed!!

  25. Please go to Artisinal, one of the best restaurants here. Either that or Cookshop, or Baked in Dumbo or my favorite wine bar, Stonehome in Park Slope... can you tell I love food and drink? LOL and PLEASE take a jaunt down to Lord & Taylor to see the xmas windows... they're up now and even though i'm a jaded NYer... I have to see them every year or the season just isn't right. LOL. Also, try to get to Brooklyn for some thrifting. Hit up 5th Ave downtown BK for some great boutiques. Hell, I think you just need to stay for 2 weeks to fit all this in! most importantly...have a ball while you're here!

  26. Gotta love Brooklyn! Some spots to try, Madiba for South African food, Egg for breakfast, Solomon's Porch for Sunday brunch, theres a spot I think called The Islands, its Jamaican food near the Brooklyn Museum, and Pates et Traditions for French/crepes. Some shopping in Clinton Hill and you are good to go!

    Have fun!
