New York City is my favorite apple

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Two weekends in a row of travel (to Saugatuck, MI and NYC) plus a jam packed CLE weekend makes for one tired blogger. No complaints from me though because my summer has literally been overflowing with fun.

Case in point, my trip with CK to NYC to see Beyonce/Jay Z, Phish and my favorite sissy.

The beginning...scenes from my Thursday night flight to LGA. Could I possibly fit anymore brands in this photo?

Upon our arrival in NYC we went straight to sissy and Jason's where we were greeted with delicious thai food. Friday morning brought brunch at Community Food & Juice and exploring one of my favorite spots near my sissy's The Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine. This visit we got to take in the Phoenix: Xu Bing art exhibition.

It was right around the time that we were walking out of the cathedral when the news hit that LeBron was coming back to the Cavs - I kinda lost it right there on the streets of NYC - I still may be in shock. That being said, Jesse had planned ahead packing his LeBron jersey and as we pre-gamed at McSorley's Old Ale House the Gannons and Kramers celebrated accordingly with "light" and "dark."

A sawdust (from the floor of McSorley's) toss is very similar to a baby powder (a la LeBron) toss. + On the Run Tour at MetLife Stadium + Train ride roadies which didn't exactly jive with the fabulous dinner and cocktails on the Narcissa terrace in the East Village Standard that we had just finished - whatevs, YOLO.

My two cents re: On The Run Tour. I've seen Jay Z in concert five times now so I basically knew what to expect. However, this was my first time seeing Beyonce and holy moly she was more fierce than I could have ever expected. I pretty much stood there in awe watching Queen Bey dominate the stage. All of the Jay Z + Beyonce combo performances were highlights for me, especially Crazy in Love (obvy), Drunk in Love (obvy) and when Bey sang Justin Timberlake's part of Holy Grail - hot damn! 

If one concert in NYC wasn't enough, on Saturday CK and I headed to see our boys Phish at Randalls Island. The show set-up exuded a great festival vibe as we caught the middle show of a three show run.

"Club Phish" at night, full moon and all + First Tube encore + Stack Wine on ice, so me, SO ME.

Forever and always NYC will be my favorite city (outside of CLE). I'm so lucky that my sissy lives there (and has a second bedroom) so I'm enabled to visit multiple times a year. GOOD TIMES.

Till next time, New York.

Happy Wednesday, kids.

  37. Unfortunately, unlike Facebook and Google+, Pinterest does not allow you to set up multiple pages under one account. If you have three websites that use Pinterest to market products, you need three separate Pinterest accounts; four if you have a personal Pinterest account, too. Not very convenient, to say the least.
    To start, go to

    You have three choices to sign up -- with your Facebook account information, your Twitter account information, or by providing an email address and creating a new Pinterest account.->

    However you sign up, you'll want a username. Your Pinterest username must be unique but you can change it later. You can have three to five characters in your Pinterest username, but no punctuation marks, dashes or other symbols.
    So go ahead and sign up for Pinterest, creating a username.

    If you create a new account rather than using Twitter or Facebook, Pinterest will ask you to confirm your email address.

    Next, go to your email inbox and look for the confirmation message that Pinterest will have sent you. It should contain a confirmation link that you must click on to go back to pinterest.COM and finish signing up.
