|What a day!|
We started out at Gimme! Coffee (4) for an iced mocha and triple berry donuts and then headed to stand in line at the TKTS booth in Brooklyn (a new location). After scoring 50% off tickets to a show for Saturday night and a Sunday matinee, we headed to Smorgasburg for some lunch on the water. I had the best nachos I’ve ever had (6) at El Gato Nacho – homemade chips and sauces were just perfect. After a limeade and a little more walking around, we headed to OddFellows for a scoop of homemade ice cream (3). I had the confetti flavor.
We went back to Brian and Jessica’s apartment and had an afternoon glass of champagne and some cheese. It was such a perfect temperature outside and the setting (2) was perfect to catch up on some reading. Jessica and I headed to Broadway, shortly afterwards, to watch Once (1), our first of two shows for the weekend. We got a tip that if you get there 30 minutes early, you can hang out on the stage, get a beer and listen to an on-stage concert from the cast (who all play instruments in the show). It was awesome and Jessica and I both sang and danced a little so we could say we’d done that on a Broadway stage. The show, based on the movie of the same name, was fantastic.
After taking the subway back to Brooklyn, we went to dinner (at 11pm, crazy kids!). We had the most amazing sushi (5) at Suzume and a nice, long conversation over a giant can of Sapporo. We then went back to the apartment and Brian had prepared us fancy egg cream-topped cocktails with edible flowers to go with the cannolis (7) we’d picked up earlier from Fortunato Brothers Cafe. Both were incredible and were a wonderful end to an amazing day. Thanks for popping in!
