BIG RED EP goes to the BIG APPLE













I love going to New York City the first Saturday in December.  And every year when I go I always say I want to go back--for a weekend--when the weather is nice(r)--and this weekend I'm going!  My friends and I are leaving at 4pm and we have a fun-filled weekend planned.  I plan to eat creme brulee at Cafe Lalo and pizza and Grimaldi's, walk across the Brooklyn Bridge (I took this photo about 5 years when I walked across it for the first time), visit the Tenement Museum and the Manhattan Temple, spend a few minutes in PurlSoHo, buy peppermint jelly beans at Dylan's, have a late dinner (our reservation is for 10:30pm!) at Carmine's, eat at the Shake Shack, visit St. John the Divine (at my mother's request), maybe go to a show (in all my trips to New York City I have never been to a show--shameful!!), try to find the best cupcakes in the city and maybe go to Top of the Rock!!  I'm looking forward to a non-stop, fun-filled, Big Apple weekend.  I'll have lots of photos and adventures to share when I return.

Awesome! I hope that the weather clears up for you. It has been foggy rainy and nasty here all week. Better pack a macintosh and bring an umbrella, just in case.
