This was one of those weeks where everything seemed to suck. I was sick, it’s freezing out, I had a ton of work to do, and I’m so behind in everything. But I was just so happy, I didn’t care. I felt like I was in a movie – birds chirping, sun is shining, music playing in my head, smiling ear to ear, champagne with every meal. Here was my week in just a few pictures.
Dylans’s Candy Bar is like dying and going to candy heaven. With only five locations in the world, this buffet of sweets is right by my job, which means serious trouble. I don’t let myself go there too often, but when I do, oh my goodness! It is such a unique candy store… it combines two of my favorite things – candy and art. They have over 5,000 different types of candy here! From jelly bellys, to cotton candy, ice cream, chocolate fountains, vintage sweets, and any type of candy you are looking for, this is the place to go. I clearly always find myself in the fudge & chocolate sections. Have you ever been to Dylan’s? What are your favorite sweets?
Today I’m happy to be doing a guest post on How Bout Some Cake about a few of my tips and some of my favorite places to visit while in New York City. Now head over, and please be sure to let me know your favorite places in New York City, so I can be sure to add them on my list of places to go 🙂
A few weeks back I went to a wedding… Which was obviously open bar. Lets just say things got a little crazy. When I woke up the next day, the one and only thing on my mind was cheeseburgers. I immediately called my brother and BaDing and the three of us agreed on Shake Shack.
Shake Shack actually started out as a hot dog cart in Manhattan… and now it’s known as a “modern day ‘roadside’ burger stand that serves up the most delicious burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine and more”
Sounds good to me! By the time we got it together, met up and got there, it was practically dinner time. We arrived at the perfect time (right before dinner) and the line was actually short! I could have ordered the entire first panel of the below menu to myself, but instead settled for a Shack burger, cheese fries and a vanilla shake. We all scarfed down our food and decided to take some more to go… just for good measure.
For those of you that aren’t from New York, you might not know about the madness that is Grand Central Station. Grand Central is a mix of angry commuters and happy tourists getting in their way. Usually, I avoid places like this at all costs.
On top of being architecturally gorgeous and the center of NYC and where all trains meet, GC is also a food court, mall, news-stand, and grocery store.. not to mention you can get a hell of a shoe shine around any corner. You can pretty much find the majority of what you need there. Every once in a while if I miss my train, I wander around and see what I can find. The other day for the first time ever I went into the Grand Central Market. It’s basically I little supermarket that only has the really fancy stuff [and is wildly overpriced.] I picked up a few items here, and while I wouldn’t regularly do my grocery shopping here, it was super convenient and very nice to look at.
