Hello, gorgeous. I’ve introduced you to this corn before, back when the Germans came to town. That was Cafe Habana in Soho. this is Habana Outpost in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. This spot is a bit more happenin’ – since they have outdoor seating and you order inside before picking up your food outside at a truck. When we got there a little after 7 on Wednesday night, the line was out the door. But we had reasons to stay as you can see above. Also, it was Tracee’s birthday.

Here are two of the Savan sisters. They had guacamole and queso sandwiches which HELLO, why didn’t I order that? Next time I will know.

We had to wait quite some time at the truck. I think since it’s been raining so much this may have been their first day being really busy because it was a little insane. They had to stop taking orders at one point so the kitchen could catch up. Also – patience is not rewarded here. If it’s busy and you want your food, you have to make yourself known.

And of course, once you get your food it all is worth it. Cubano sandwich at left and of course some more of that glorious corn.

And now we come to the section in which we were asked nicely to leave. As I said already, it was Tracee’s birthday. So Tracee’s roommate Leigh Anna made her some glorious strawberry cupcakes with vanilla frosting. We even sang her a song:

Well, it didn’t go over well. As soon as we were done singing, the lady in charge at Habana was standing there and in one breath said “Happy birthday” to Tracee and “I need to talk to you” to Leigh Anna at the same time. Basically, there’s a $20 charge to bring outside food in. Which I mean, I get. But cupcakes? Birthday cupcakes? They don’t even have dessert! Like I said, I get it, rules are rules – but you’d think after we all came and had food and drinks, it wouldn’t really be a big deal if we took three seconds to all eat a birthday cupcake. So as we did not pay the $20, we had to leave.

I think this picture is hilarious. Tracee is wearing a birthday sash, which is awesome. And nobody else you can really see. We all love Cafe Habana and it’s not like we won’t be back five million times this summer. We just won’t be bringing cupcakes.

Hello! Tuesday night I went skating again at Bryant Park. Since it’s peak season and it was after work, you can probably imagine how packed it was.

The ice was so bad and there was so much snow, I felt like I was walking through a cloud instead of skating on ice. I probably dulled my blades something good. I tried to do a few things but there were just SO many people! I did a couple axels and a few spins but that was pretty much it.

I did a flying camel in the middle of the rink and then the lady teaching lessons came over and told me that she was teaching a lesson and she couldn’t really tell me not to skate in the middle but, um, could I not skate in the middle? Huh? And I was with my professional photog who also got yelled at, but for taking a picture of me (no electronics on the ice!). So many rules in figure skating!

At least the lady was nice enough to let me know when her lesson was over so I could use the middle again and I did a few more spins. I did two sit spins which I definitely have not done in years. Legs = sore.

Here’s me trying to do a layback:

As packed as it was, it was actually pretty fun. And I only knocked over one person (seriously). Also, now there’s a huge Christmas tree in Bryant Park which makes it even more lovely.

Skating at Bryant Park makes me want to skate every single day. And it makes me even more excited to finally try skating at Prospect Park, the rink that’s super close to my apartment. It’s ridiculous how close it is to me actually (I can see it from my bedroom window) so I need to get me and my skates over there ASAP.
