Before I Walk the Plank...


...I get to spend a week in NYC celebrating my last days of singlehood.
FYI: We prefer NOT to say bachelorette party

Beginning tomorrow, I will be spending the week...

  • love, love, loving my big sister
  • relishing in culinary inspiration found around every corner
  • playing kissy face with friends I've been away from for way too long
  • eating cupcakes at Billy's Bakery and bagels at Murray's
  • taking my niece Matilda to Pug Hill in Central Park
  • on the lookout to thank and shake hands with Danny Meyer for blowing my mind
  • walking miles and miles in large sunglasses and fashionably uncomfortable shoes
  • staying up waaaaaay past my bedtime
  • getting rowdy by demanding "dance-offs" in dimly lit bars
  • and anxiously wondering how much my LRBC Family misses me (only to drunk-dial them late-night just to find out)

Strip clubs, Chip n' Dales, cheesy games, Vegas references, stupid-silly hats, and/or edible underware need not apply.

LIAM! I can't believe it. Cafe Grumpy is my sister and her man's coffee spot. I've heard all about it! We were in a rush this morning so there wasnt time to stop in. I started my day off this morning with an everything bagel with a shmear of scallion. Damn! I wish I would've made it to Grumpy's. Tomorrow it shall be. Can't wait! Thanks so much for writing!!!
