It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted a completed goal, but I just knocked out 2 at one time this week/weekend. I’ve just returned from a 3 day trip to New York City with my friends. It was so much fun. There were a few things that we were going to do but forgot to or didn’t, so I want to come back in the summer and do some of those. We stayed in Brooklyn but mostly were in Manhattan to do things. We had a lot of fun and did a lot of less touristy things which was nice because we didn’t wait that long in lines at restaurants, museums, etc.
When we first got there, we went to the Museum of Sex which was actually really interesting. Later that night I went with one of my friends to see Of Mice and Men on Broadway. No, I’m not talking about the shitty band whose merch is sold at Hot Topic. I’m talking about the play based on the book by John Steinbeck. James Franco, Chris O’Dowd and Leighten Meester. It was so incredibly good. I was kind of afraid that it would be a let down with such big names in it, but it was such an amazing performance. Chris O’Dowd was incredible as Lennie. After the play I went to S’mac for the first time, but I wasn’t a fan of it. If you’re like me and have never been there or heard of it, it’s a restaurant that has every kind of Macaroni and Cheese you can think of.
The next morning we went to Madame Tussauds. If you’ve never been there, you really should go. It’s a super cool wax museum. A lot of the celebrities, living or dead, looked truly realistic. It’s seriously an amazing place, so definitely check out the site for Madame Tussauds and see if there is a location in whichever major US city is near you and go check it out. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
On this trip I also got to experience Red Bamboo for the first time. If you’re a Vegetarian or Vegan (or not) and haven’t eaten there before, you need to fix that. The restaurant is very cute and has an incredible menu. The appetizers and entrees are delicious. I ate the wings every single time we went there because they were just so damn delicious. If you’re down to try something new out, definitely check out this spot.
Once we finished our lunch at Red Bamboo, we wandered around the city a little bit in search of the Kardashian’s store Dash. We were so glad that we found it because it was just such an iconic moment. My best friend and I religiously watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians, so the experience was just so surreal. I remember watching them open the New York store on Kim and Kourtney take New York. Such a cool experience. We did some other random things here and there. Shopping, restaurants, and walking around. We went to the Williamsburg Flea, which was super cute. We went on a food only day though so literally all we could do there was eat. I got some awesome steals at Urban Outfitters, and experienced Lush for the first time! We were also going to get friendship tattoos while we were there but the prices were ridiculous, so we ended up not doing it.
The trip was really fun and I hope that we can do another one soon. I had a really good time and I was kind of bummed to go home. The main things I was excited to come home to was my bed, shower, dog, and little brother. We did have one final food stop in the City before we left. I ate my first vegan donut from Dun-Well Doughnuts. HOLY SHIT it was delicious! I want to go back just to get a dozen donuts for
myself. I can’t believe how perfect it was!
Overall, the trip was insanely fun and I definitely want to do something like that with my friends again soon because it was such a good time!
Have you ever been to NYC? What’s you’re favorite thing to do there?
Until next time lovelies,
