In the spirit of love that started the week off, I’m going to tell you about another thing that I love. (Insert disclaimer here: I am a born & bred Bostonian, and absolutely love my town, but, I have a soft spot for the big apple.) I love New York City. For too long I was intimidated by it, thought it was dirty & loud and just too much. Yet, over the past year or so my heart has been softened toward this monstrous city of steel & cement. I’ve had a few amazing weekend trips, and seen enough of Manhattan at least, to know what parts I like and find a few hidden gems.
My most recent trip was not just for fun though- I went to attend an alumni event for Hobart & William Smith, my dear undergrad alma mater. You should send your kids there. Just sayin’. The majority of my day Saturday was spent in a suit at a private club in Mid-town. It took a lot out of us, so there wasn’t a whole lot of energy left to bar-hop that night. Though I did eat a corned beef sandwich that was about the size of my head (see photo above, I only made it through half!)
The highlight of my weekend was certainly Sunday. A fantastic brunch followed by an afternoon trip to MoMA. A couple of friends had been recently and reported back must-sees. Unfortunately, one was closed, but, to my surprise there was another exhibit called “Design: The Modern Kitchen.” Someone clearly knew I was coming that day!! It was a sort of walk through history of the development of the modern kitchen- technological advances, trends, art based on food, it was small but really interesting. I wish I had taken better notes!
Here are a few pics from the exhibit, and I hope you get a chance to see it before it moves on!
(I’ll be cooking up a storm this long weekend, so look forward to recipes next week!)
