new york city

the second leg of my vacation, i traveled to nyc to visit my best girl, beth.
after hitting congested traffic early that morning in charlotte, missing my flight and re-booking, i finally made it to nyc later that afternoon. she picked me up from the airport with some much needed macaroons and we headed home to settle in and have a late lunch.
that evening we ventured out to the west side and had cucumber cocktails and appetizers at cafe gitane at the jane hotel.  the cutest, quirkiest place where the bell hops still wear red-tail coats and top hats.
we strolled a bit then met up with tony at mtk tavern and laughed until early hours.
needless to say i slept great that night and woke refreshed and ready for the day ahead.
friday was low-key.  beth had some errands to run and once she was finished, we ventured out to greenwich ave and had a late lunch of buckwheat crepes at milo melo and strolled boutiques for a few hours.
after, we headed home, freshened up and headed out to port chester to one of mario batali's restaurants, tarry lodge.
the food was unreal and the company was even better.
we hit up bar taco after and had mojitos to end the night.
saturday was our city day.  we wandered around the metropolitan museum of art for hours, strolled through central park and tried a few different macaroons from different places.
dinosaur bbq was mentioned as a possible dinner spot and i was hesitant because you can't get good bbq outside of the south.  boy was i wrong.  it was good. soooo good. 
and the homemade key lime pie...killer!
we called it a night at that point because neither one of us was capable of moving after that meal.
sunday was my last day and we left for the airport a little after noon.  it's always sad to leave but knowing that i will be back keeps my spirits up.
i miss my girl but am so thankful for the laughs, car dancing, and good times!
