Last week was a little thrown because, for the first time in forever, I was ill. It might have got me a day of back-to-back Gilmore Girls episodes, but it generally wasn’t very fun. So I’ve not been having as many adventures as usual, but I still managed to appreciate some of New York’s treats, like:


1 :: How it’s getting lighter in the mornings! This means that on my 6.30am ride to the office, the skyline is now even more amazing than usual – because it looks green! Every morning, I gawk out of the window and take a bazillion pictures, and that sight never gets old.

2 :: Museum trips on drizzly days. And brilliant museums, at that.

Organic Grill

3 :: Valentine’s soup. This was a bowl of delicious pink cauliflower soup from our favorite cafe.

Keith Herring

4 :: This new Keith Haring sculpture. It’s around the other side of my work building (you can see it on the corner of St Marks/8th Street and 3rd Avenue), so a few weeks after it moved in, I’ve only just spotted it. Oops.

Strait Up Brooklyn

5 :: This hunky band at Rock Shop. Ryan’s George Strait tribute band, Strait Up, played a great show at this Brooklyn music venue on Thursday, followed by a performance from Kimberly Clark (top picture) and then a Dolly Parton Tribute band. So, so fun.

Great Bar Harry

6 :: This beer name at Great Bar Harry.

Banh Mi

7 :: Delicious vegetarian banh mi from Xe May Sandwich Shop in the East Village. Such a winner every time.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend, and stay warm in the cold this week!
