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.
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’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.
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:
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 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!
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.
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.
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.
That’s all folks!
My next tour will be soon!
