So yesterday was my sister’s boyfriend’s birthday, and they took a little day trip into the city to hang with us. Chris and I wandered through Central Park, across the Reservoir, to get to the West side, where we met up with the pair at The Boat Basin Cafe, an open-air cafe/bar right on the Hudson River.
After the Boat Basin, we walked down along the river, out onto the docks, and had some sangria while sitting outside at the Pier Cafe. We ended the night with burritos as Blockheads back on the east side, where you can never go wrong.
Some photos from our day:
Bis bald friends! Hope your weekend was just as sunny

Meeting a friend for tea feels oh-so-sophisticated.
So I was out with another friend this morning at Alice’s Tea Cup, and I thought I’d throw up a quick post about it. If you’re a lover of tea (which I am not, but luckily the coffee is just as yummy!) or you have kids, this is a really fun place.
There are three locations around the city, but we visited Chapter III, over on 81st St. between 3rd and 2nd Ave. There are really cute decorations, they serve the coffee in humongous mugs …
And the scones are to die for …
Pumpkin and vegan banana scones with whipped cream and blueberry sauce. What?!
I glanced over at some of the tables around us, and the tea comes served in cute little tea kettles, too. We met up around 9:30 and the place was pretty empty, but by the time we left around 11 it was bumping.
Anyway, just a more sophisticated suggestion should you ever happen to be in this beautiful city. (You know, since my last blog post was about beer and pretzels!)
Bis bald, friends!
