Good Enough to Eat

Sunday was Gavin’s mom’s last day in NYC (until next time) so we went to breakfast at Good Enough to Eat on the Upper West Side.


Super delish. The highlight of the meal was the orange slices on the waffles.


The bacon was super thick. Maybe there was cilantro on the eggs. TBD


On the way to the subway, we stopped briefly in an antique store.


Next stop was Penn Station. Gavin and I waited with his mom for her train and we saw two people they know while we were there.

We made a note of some things to try next time Mrs. Thomas comes to visit:
Peter Pan Donuts & Pastries
Book of Mormon
Circle Line

After we got back, Gavin and I relaxed for a little bit. Then his VNDL co-founder came over and they worked for awhile. I passed out and ended up sleeping until it was time for dinner.

When his friend left, we watched the X Games on ESPN. Not super excited about Shaun White’s haircut. Definitely looking forward to the next snowboarding trip.

Harlem, Brooklyn, Tribeca

Gavin was watching a Syracuse game so Mrs. Thomas and I went to Brooklyn Flea to check out some of the Brooklyn crafts and antiques. Thankfully, the winter Brooklyn Flea market is held indoors- inside an old bank, actually.


Amy met up with us while we were there and we did some shopping. I got some great finds: necklace from Birdhouse, small mirror for the guest room, a really bright red metal tray with cherries on it and a large blue mason jar (Gavin’s mom helped me bargain on that one and I got a good price.)


Then Gavin showed up. We briefly stopped at Marshall’s nearby and then decided to head back to the island.


We went for juice at Miss Lily’s on Houston.


Gavin’s mom and I both got one called Sweet & Dandy: apple, beet, lemon, ginger, carrots and pineapple. (Definitely going to make this one at home!)


And Gavin got the Jamaican Green, which had kale, apple, lemon, ginger and celery in it. We ended up eating dinner there, too.


I captured the experience on Vine (Kris’ company’s new app)


We took the train down to Canal Street where we saw the Freedom Tower in progress and lit up.


Carlos was all dressed up for the premiere of his show at Tribeca Cinemas, When Bobby Met Larry. Meagan we there, too. My cousin, Janice, met up with us.


After the show, Gavin’s mom, Gavin and I went back to the apartment. We were hungry from eating around 5pm so we had some homemade chocolate chip cookies and brownies and watched some TV before heading to bed.
