I’m sure you’re all wondering from my last post who my mystery guest was. Drum roll please!
(If you want to know what I’m up to quicker than my snail of a posting pace, follow me on Instagram)
Does that name ring a bell? Probably because I mentioned him in my post about my vacation to Madrid. He’s in the US for the very first time and hitting up NYC, Philly, and DC. So we decided to meet up while he was here. Speaking of firsts, this man had never ever had a bagel before in his life. Can you say deprived?
I’m skipping ahead. Rewind to Friday, we met up and hit up Coney Island for the fireworks and a ride on the Wonder Wheel.
Post-Bagel Saturday, we toured and lounged around Central Park.
And if that wasn’t enough park for us we followed it up with the High Line.
And Morningside Park.
Sunday we kayaked in the Hudson (Yes, again. What can I say, I’m a creature of habit). Followed by brunch in the shadow of Freedom Tower at the Merchant’s River House. The restaurant was okay but the location was beautiful. I love Battery Park.
Ferried on over to Staten Island and back.
Fought our way through Times Square for some Junior’s Cheesecake. If you’re a tourist in NYC having cheesecake is obviously a must. And since we were in the area and starving how could we say no to the infamous Halal Guys Food cart?
A word of advice: Add more white sauce (and some more) and go light on the hot (FIRE!) sauce.
