What a wonderful weekend! My web pals Jes & Hope were here for a visit. Jes took her mom and good friend Judy to NYC for a Xmas gift. Our weekend began Friday night in the trendy Meat Packing District with Tom for cocktails. Too many cocktails. We started at a quiet wine lounge and then moved on to a more lively, swanky bar. We really had a great time, but should have quit after the third cosmo/margarita/girlie drink. Our hangovers did not deter us from getting up bright and early the next morning for flea market shopping. Jes and Hope snagged some fabulous goodies. I can't wait to see what new creations are made from their finds.
We walked all over the city and have aching feet to prove it. We checked out Chelsea and Chinatown and shopped all over Soho. Hope and I even hit Park Slope, Brooklyn to go to the indie shop Cog and Pearl and stumbled upon lots of interesting little shops. Of course, no trip to NYC would be complete without food. Mexican for lunch after flea market shopping, fabulous French brunch in Brooklyn, Peasant for a fine Italian Sunday dinner and a trip to the Cupcake Cafe. Now it's time to go back to work and back on a diet.
