We’re having great weather to play in this great city!!!
Here are more photos of our breakfast at the happy organic coffee shop
After breakfast we went to visit the 9/11 Memorial. I can’t believe it’s almost been 10 years. It seems like it was just yesterday. Despite the time that has passed, this was my first visit and I can hardly imagine how horrible that day must have been here.
We decided to walk through the neighborhoods to our museum destination and ended up walking for about an hour. NYC exercise!!
Our unisex purse
Matt said I would love to visit this shop
A CUPCAKE truck!?
We passed the famous Max Brenner Chocolate Shop and just HAD to step inside, which meant we just HAD to try something!!
We each chose a chocolate to save for later and the woman at the registered convinced us to buy a SYRINGE of hot melted chocolate to shoot up.
Nothin’ like chocolate at 10AM!
We carried on our way and arrived at our destination: The Museum Of Sex!!
Matt’s choice, not mine
We only had about an hour, so we didn’t have time for any of the bigger museums. This one was a good short fit. I’ll spare you the graphic details of the exhibits!! It was really interesting, but also under renovations and therefore a bit bare
The gift shop was really neat!
At noon we headed back down to meet – GENA! – for lunch! Gena and I have been blog friends for a long time – emailing and what not – and I’ve met her twice in person now. Third time’s a charm! She’s such a New Yorker and of course we wanted to go to One Lucky Duck for lunch.
Wish I could go to PURE too!
I may not be a raw foodist, but I sure love me some raw food!
Matt, Gena and I each got beautiful salads.
Mine was the s&m salad with greens, avocado, hemp seeds, dulse [seaweed like stuff!], argon-lemon dressing and QUAKERS!!!!!!!!!! It was an awesome salad (although a little too much oil dressing – forgot to get it on the side!!) I shared a lot with Matt.
Matt’s was a seaweed delight
Gena‘s was all herb and rocked with flavor (she gave me a bite!)
I fell in love with these Rosemary Quakers, which are made with almonds, flax, nutritional yeast, rosemary and salt, a year or so ago and they are to-die-for!
An almond butter cookie…
And a mallomar, which was by far the best because of the vanilla coconut icing!! I had a bite of each cookie
We said our goodbyes and made our way back to the subway, to the hotel, and blogging, and oh-mi-gosh I’m going to be late for my own blog meet-up at the Brooklyn Brewery!!!!
