Weekend in Photos: NY Edition

I haven't done a weekend in photos in a while, because, well, my weekends are mostly cleaning the house and getting out to have it shown. Exciting stuff.

But this weekend, I went to New York to hang out with my friend Kelly. We didn't plan anything big, other than eat eat eat. Because when one is in New York, one is within reach of some of the best restaurants in the world. So one should EAT. And we did.

Luckily for me, Kelly convinced me to not be a gluttonous Philistine and inserted some culture into my life. We went to the Guggenheim, which I've been wanting to visit forever. What can I say? That is one amazing museum and piece of architecture. And I'm lucky to be able to go there.
The energy of New York is so contagious.
We also got to see a Broadway play with one of my favoritest actors, Frances McDormand. She is as good on stage as she is in movies, which means she was superb! The play was Good People, so entertaining. I had forgotten how much I love the theatre. Such a treat.
The super famous Momofuku pork buns. Über-delish!
So enough of culture, and back to food. We were originally going to do the David Chang tour. Fell a little short, but we did eat at Ma Peche and Momofuku Noodle Bar. Yes, all that brewhaha over his food is correct. It is that good.
Kelly ordered two of everything for herself! Can you believe that? Sheesh. (I kid. That's half mine.)
And a trip to NY is not complete without a visit to a Shake Shack! Yum. Love their burgers and fries. And I'm not usually a burger and fries kinda girl.
I had this creme brulee donut. Holy cow. It was amazing. Wish I had ordered three.
The seating at the Doughnut Plant. Do you see a scrapbook idea forming here?
Oh. Almost forgot. We also went to the Doughnut Plant. I kept reading about how amazing their donuts were, and they are! I also found out a little secret about Kelly. She doesn't really like donuts! Wha-what? Who doesn't like donuts? KELLY!

Suddenly, my weekend was over. And I came home to Philly to these guys, plus a dinner at Le Bus. All happy inducing.

A wall sign at Le Bus. True dat!
Yes, it was a very good weekend!

Love your photos... love that you and Kelly got to spend some time together before your big move out west. Love the donut pattern (reminds me of my all-time fave patterned paper from KI memories, Collection IV).

Thanks for my Monday smile. :)

How FUN!!! And OMG those photos just made me hungry. Let's make a plan to eat our way through Los Angeles. Stacy told me about some bacon wrapped hotdogs downtown in the garment district. Shopping for trim + bacon wrapped hotdogs from a truck. Date?
