So, here's how things are shaking so far:
Met up with Mai-Lise for a mini-food tour to Adrienne's Pizza in the Financial District. Verdict: it's light, square, and fresh. It's also tucked away on a cobble stoned street in the Financial District, which makes it even cuter.
Have a great time on your family vacay, M-L!
1. Caught up with Becca W. and Karrie G. to see Julie & Julia!
- Thoughts: cute movie about two parallel stories of Julia Childs and Julie Powell (the real one lives in LIC!), their life in and out of the kitchen. I liked that they were juxtaposed side by side, w/o their worlds actually crossing in real time (almost at one point towards the end) and it was a new, refreshing way to see a story unfold, which I appreciated. The food is delicious on screen and makes me want to have dinner parties all the time (along with being able to cook and have my blog become a hit that becomes a book and movie...haha uh huh).
- Would I recommend it? I say yes, it's a fun movie to see for people especially interested in food and gives people encouragement to pursue what they love, no matter what age.
2. Then I grabbed a free McCafe with Karrie (Thanks! so yummy) and got lunch with Grace L. at Blend in LIC. It's a Latin fusion restaurant, and I really enjoyed the arepa w/ poached egg and turkey! Grace's grilled steak and plantains were delicious too: ) Very well priced and portioned dishes. I'll go again!
The next two events I went to deserve their own posts, so keep reading - 3rd Annual Yo-Yo Nation Competition and Angie+Alex's Housewarming Party!
The rest of the evening was filled with seeing two different improv shows, but the night itself was a bad improv so wasn't so smooth. Still, thanks Cam-Cam for hanging out and making the best of it all hehe.
Ah, tomorrow is a new day: )
