I Hang Out with People Too on Occasion

0CD0A693-52B6-4144-9215-6B909CEE874D

When I’m not taking myself on tours of the city based on books I’ve read set in NYC, “dates” with myself, as I call them…I do sometimes go out and hang out with people. Shocker, I know!

It’s been pretty cool discovering the city in a whole new way, through the eyes of the characters I read about in my NYC books. Check out my Breakfast at Tiffany’s tour or my Reconstructing Amelia tour if you haven’t already. I plan on taking myself on more tours!

As awesome as that is, social interaction is important in life so if you’re interested, I’ll do a little show and tell of what I’ve been up to since my last tour.

Ready?

I’ll spare you the picture of my couch, but don’t you worry, it’s gotten plenty of love and attention.

I got off my couch and met up with a good friend who was back in town. We went to Erv’s on Beekman.

The cocktails were delicious!

On another night we went to Franchia’s.

Franchia Vegan Cafe

Franchia’s is a yummy vegan Asian fusion restaurant. Not too shabby!

With other friends, I went to Radio City to see the Garden of Dreams talent show. Awesome night!

Strolled through the lovely, serene Times Square.

Times Square
This guy is looking at me like, “Ugh…tourist.” Stop! I’m not the tourist! You are! Now get out of my way.

I’ve been on two dates! Two dates with two different guys and there won’t be any second dates. That’s my dating life in a nutshell!

Bachelor #1 took me here:

Mimi’s Hummus
Oh look! A cute dog!

This guy bragged about taking me out to dinner and insisting I take the leftovers home. He boasted, “Pretty good deal, right!?” He was trying to soften the blow of never asking me out again. It’s okay I still enjoyed the leftovers.

Bachelor #2:

Sycamore Flower Shop + Bar

Bachelor #2 didn’t like the low tables at this bar. Not to worry though because we found tables more to his liking at another section of the establishment. He was a nice guy but just not the right guy for me. It’s okay…I enjoyed the knock off Blue Moon beer.

Back to swiping!

I’ll take these two little pug butts!

Streets of NYC

TV/Pizza Night
Every Friday night is TV/Pizza night with my brother and his gf (not my messy apartment)
Office view
Stunning view from my office that we’re moving out of. 😢

My friends and I ate at Basil Brick Oven Pizza in Astoria, Queens. We got together to say goodbye to our friend who is moving away! So many of my good friends have moved out of this city. Can’t really blame them when it’s so expensive here.

Gnocchi
Gnocchi, yum!
Greek Church in Astoria, Queens
Cool looking Greek Church in Astoria
Neptune Diner
One day I’ll have to go to Neptune Diner

We went to this little slice of heaven

It was jam packed! So packed that while we waited for a table, we had to keep shuffling around to get out of the way of people coming at us from all different angles.

Do I have to pick just one?
Chocolate lava cake
I washed this down with a chocolate peanut butter shake. Don’t judge.

I always forget how eating a warm cake or brownie with ice cream stresses me out. It’s a race to eat it all before all the ice cream melts! It’s a lot of pressure.

Strand Bookstore
My friend bought this for me. Isn’t it the best!?

That’s all folks!

My next tour will be soon!

Currently reading Lindsey Kelk’s I Heart New York.

  1. The pun is not intended (for once) but I devoured that post. I thoroughly enjoyed the food pictures and the ruff drafts (i.e the pictures of dogs) in this little story-like thingy. It sucks that you had two strikes, with regards to the bachelors. I mean, who suggests taking the leftovers? It’s in the code, dude. Anyway, I digress….somewhat.

    I can’t wait for the next tour!

  2. Hahaha!!! I just ate cheap hot yummy tacos tonight. I enjoyed them whilst lying on my couch. This place is my newest obsession. 🌮 🌮

    I know! That guy was a little bit hoighty-toighty. 😏
    Thanks for reading!! 😍

    1. Haha thanks for reading! Glad you liked it.
      My old office had the best view! They blocked most our view in the new office with file cabinets. I’m not too bothered because I’m about to start a new job. I have no idea what that office will look like. We’ll see!
      Thanks again for reading! 😍
