This guy – my husband/partner-in-crime-and-travel/best friend – is turning 40 next month. We headed to New York City with his parents to celebrate the milestone with a ton of fun. After arriving and checking into our hotel, we had some classic NY-style pizza and headed to the live taping of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Guests on the show were Lucy Liu, Henry Winkler, and Run the Jewels.
After the show, we headed to BlackTail Bar [permanently closed in January 2020] for dinner and drinks. Brian had been during a trip last June and wanted the rest of us to experience this cool, Cuban spot. They started us off with a round of mini daiquiris (of course) and we ordered some scrumptious food.
We had this amazing cheese tray…
…these plantain chips and yucca fries (with the yummiest salsa fresca and and garlic aioli)…and (not pictured: calamari, grilled shrimp, and beef empanadas).
Oh, and this amazing yellow fin tuna crudo with mango, avocado, and macadamia nuts. We did not leave hungry! We had a whole day of things planned for the next day, so I will leave you here for now. (Or you can get into the next day...)
