Birthday in the City

This weekend I had the absolute pleasure of spending time with two of my favorite people. Bryan and Mary were in town visiting for Bryan's Big Birthday! Therefore, I would like to give a BIG shout out to Bryan!


They surprised me by showing up at my work! Then we went to Luke's for a happy hour drink.

Followed by National Underground for some live music. 

Then we went and met all my friends at Gallery Bar. As you can tell, we had a lot of fun!

There is nothing like eating at the Meatball Shop at 2am. So, we splurged and went all out, dessert included! The Meatball Shop is a little ritual Bryan and I have, so we thought we would add Mary. 

Did I mention we ate a lot?

And acted like dorks...

We spent the majority of our afternoon here... 

And ate lunch at Shake Shack...

Of course, for dessert, I had to bring them to Levain's Bakery. We ate the cookies too quickly to even think about taking a photo. 

We spent the evening bar hopping around Greenwich Village starting with Spotted Pig, Rusty Knot, The Other Room, and Wilfie and Nell. 

I hope they had a fabulous trip to NYC! It was sure great to have them here. 
I miss them already! Love you guys!
