Highlights of the day included a hike down to the financial district for brunch at Harry’s Pizza. We had quite the crowd in there!
You can guess who the mature one of the group is.
This included all you can drink mimosas and Bloody Marys and coffee and really amazing pizzas for just $17 – not a bad deal!
Plus baskets of fluffy focaccia
My arch nemesis
Happy Birthday Kanz!
And Happy 30th Canada!
My arugula, prochuitto and parmesan pizza
After brunch (which lasted until 3pm, I headed up to the West Village where I ran into this monster!!
Miss Amie and I hung out for a few hours while she showed me a taste of the city in the form of cupcakes.
Our first stop was Magnolia’s where I purchased this purple beauty:
The frosting was super sugary, but I loved it! I only ate 1/3 because I wanted to taste more and save some for Matt.
Next stop was the mac store to pick up some lipgloss based solely on Jessica’s review
I’m not sure if the texture is too tacky for me, but I love the color/sparkle!
On our walk back to SoHo, we stumbled upon Molly’s Cupcakes
Here I bought the cake batter flavor
Which was stuffed with cake batter!
Heavenly!! Also saved the rest for Matt.
Our final stop was Baked by Melissa which features tiny little bite-sized cakes
I got a S’mores, which was just ok plus a peanut butter cup for Matt and a New York Crème
Magnolia’s took the cake this afternoon. On my next trip I’ll have to try more! What’s your favorite NYC cupcake?
This building was my favorite of the day:
We’re off to an EARLY dinner tonight and a birthday party (where there is more cake!) to fill up the evening!
