Back in the Borough: A Sophisticated Placed to Tea

Meeting a friend for tea feels oh-so-sophisticated.

Hi friends,

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!

Back in the Borough: The Scream at MoMA

Hi friends,

Welcome to December! So Christmas trees are back at the subway stations, and Chris and I took a jaunt to MoMA today to check out Edvard Munch’s famous painting, ‘The Scream.’

Let’s take a gander:

The tree stand outside of our 96th St. station, where we’ll probably pick up our own little piece of green heaven.

We stopped in the cafe for lunch while we were there. I had a delicious salad, Chris had the cheese tort and we shared the marinated olive platter. These were our delicious drinks.
