I feel like I have sort of abandoned this blogmobile for my Google+ page. But it wasn’t on purpose! The new update page on WordPress is not my favorite and all my photos automatically give me the option to share on Google+ anyway. But City Mitten, I’ll always love you. So I’ve decide to say hello with some of my favorite (cell phone) shots from the past few weeks.


My homegirl Michelle came to visit this weekend and one of the many awesome things we did included a trip to Yankee Stadium to see The Detroit Tigers (and they won!). We got some garlic fries and moved to the lower level and had an overall good time. She’s easy to hang with when she’s here, I don’t have ro run around like a chicken with my head cut off so I really appreciate that.

Here’s a work-related photo of myself that I really dig:

That’s me, on the internet. Or more specifically, that’s me being projected onto a wall at the latest Zagat 30 Under 30 party in New York. Holla!

Speaking of 30 Under 30, after the event (and after the after-party), a group of us headed over to Parm for some late-night eats. These eats included ice cream cake, as you do.

Well, hello.

And finally, the last picture I’ll include in this update is me and some of my girlies after Easter brunch at Almond. My dad was in town for Easter and was really impressed with Almond (as was I, great place!) and so here I am with some of my girls.

Good times!

I  may have some other updates in the pipeline here, but this is all for now. Good night!

Guess what – it’s baseball season! And also Water Taxi season, as you see in this picture. One of the best things about going to a Yankees game is taking the water taxi from downtown all the way up to the Bronx. And it costs all of one dollar to reserve your seat. It’s awesome. Who doesn’t like cruising on the Hudson? Also, you can buy beer. That’s Allison, Stacy, and I when we were still docked at the South Street Seaport.

And here is Stacy after we get cruisin’:

Hey, Stacy! Stacy is one of my awesomest friends and she currently lives in my neighborhood! Sadly only for about ten more days as she’s moving to Austin shortly. I will miss her ’cause we’ve had some super fun times. Also I look forward to seeing her when I go visit my dad in Texas in October. It’s gonna be SWEET.

And the one picture from the game with all the girls:

I love this picture. We all had fun at the game and the tickets were only six dollars! That’s some cheap entertainment. Of course we bought hot dogs and beers and garlic fries to make up for it though. Ha. I look forward to going to more games this season, especially as it gets nicer out. Go Yankees! (And the Detroit Tigers, natch.)

Oh also – we met Tracy Morgan after the game. He was nice and took a photo with us. Thanks, Tracy – we all love 30 Rock!

Don’t you wish you could have brunch every day? That would be so nice. This particular brunch was at Roebling Tea Room in Williamsburg and I will always support and suggest Roebling Tea Room because it’s typically fantastic – especially their mac and cheese. And it’s really cute.

In other news, went to the Yankees/Tigers game last night. Tigers lost, which was sad. But I still like the Yankees. We had some rowdy, rowdy boys behind us that were a little too much to handle, the worst cuban sandwich I’ve had in my life and some amazing garlic fries, which I had never even thought of trying. Delicious! But you’ll have to wait for Kelly Purkey to see any pictures, I shockingly enough did not bring my camera! Oh and we took the Water Taxi there, which means we traveled by boat to the Bronx from downtown Manhattan. It was lovely. Perfect day for a ball game. But now I am le tired. Always worth it though. Always, always.

Happy Fourth of July! That was yesterday. Let me introduce you to a favorite American past time: baseball. Detroit baseball. We went to the game on Saturday with about 25 people – family and friends – and our seats were bomb. Lower level, which I never buy for myself because they are $$$ and I expected to be sitting in the nosebleeds since we had so many people, so it was a nice surprise when our tickets were lower level. Here’s my cousin Nicole, who is awesome:

And here are some fancy hotdogs that Michelle took a picture of for me:

Mmm hmm. What’s more American than some hotdogs at a ballpark?

And as you can see from my first picture, there is a carousel at Comerica Park and it’s made up of Tigers and we rode it! I looooove carousels.

It went kind of fast! And as you can see, I’m wearing a Yankees t-shirt to the Tigers game. I was actually expecting at least one drunk guy to heckle me, but alas, I only got some weird looks! It’s a Granderson t-shirt, which is funny because the Yanks stole him from the Tigs.

We won, natch. Go Tigers! And we stayed after the game for some fancy fireworks:

Yay! Hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July!

Goooooooo Team! And by team we mean TIGERS! Wednesday night I went to the Tigers/Mets game at Citifield with six other native Detroiters and one kid from Florida. Yep. Unfortunately the Tigers were creamed. CREAMED. 5-0. But it was fun; we had things to eat, badges to earn on Foursquare, cheers to cheer, and lots of people to look at. Baseball too. And we got giant foam fingers! First, the food:

Here’s Abhishek’s hot dog with lots of things on it:

I don’t even know what all that is. Onions? Japalenos? Relish? Out of control. And now here is a vat of cheese:

Also out of control. Finally, my pulled pork sammie from Blue Smoke:

Erm, delicious. Only the slightest hint of barbeque sauce and only the slightest hint was needed. And there were pickles. How come I’ve never been to Blue Smoke before? It’s on the list now.

And now, me and my friends:

It’s an accomplishment to get an awesome group of 8 at the same place at the same time. Nice work, team. :) Have a good weekend!

Ok, I think I might be a Yankees fan now. A couple of weeks ago I went to my second game for the season and it was A-mazing. Last time, it was opening week and it was freezing and we left half way through. This time, it was perfect and the game was so exciting, we stayed for the whole thing! Three hours + of baseball. And we liked it. It might have helped that I was with Kelly and that we made a few stops to get food, such as this Carl’s Philly Cheesesteak above. Um, I’ve never had a Philly’s Cheesesteak until I went to Yankees stadium. And it was good. KP even got hers with cheez whiz. Oh yes she did.

So Yankees versus the Boston Red Sox. Holy cow. We were winning major first inning and then the Sox came back and were beating us all until the ninth inning where the Yankees exploded in home runs. We were off our SEATS cheering for baseball. Completely absurd. So we won with a walk-off (fancy term I learned from Miss Detroit Tigers herself) and then the stadium blasted Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York.” Could not have been more fitting. Everyone was going nuts and the song just topped it off. Such little New Yorkers we are. And they had to have played the song at least twenty times because it was still going by the time we went through the crazy madness and made it outside. It’s up to you, New York, New York!

P and I went to the Yankees versus the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim game last night. It was my first time in the new stadium and it was pretty nice!

Here’s $50 of food from Nathan’s.

Here’s the view from $20 seats:

And here’s some happy campers:

The Yankees killed it, of course. I mean how could they not after stealing Curtis Granderson from the Detroit Tigers? I was going to buy a Granderson t-shirt, too, but they were sold out! And next time, I’m getting ice cream from Carvel. :)

Oh, and by the way, they gave out free hats last night to basically the entire stadium except for us. We even asked for them and they wouldn’t give some to us. We thought maybe they were just for fancy seats, but when we got to our seats we realized everyone had them. We were gypped.

Hmm… maybe I’ll have to get a BoSox hat instead. :)

Yankee vision

I’m not the hugest baseball fan, and if I was, I’d be Team Tigers all the way. But, it looks like one of my “home” teams just won the World Series! Congrats, Yankees and their fans!

Earlier this week, I walked through Times Square briefly after a volleyball game in Hell’s Kitchen and realized the game was being showed on the giant TV on Broadway. How fun to be chillin outside in Times Square and still be able to watch the game? Go Yanks.
