Weekend Recap!

Happy Monday!  We had yet another great weekend with some impromptu events along the way.

It was back to being freezing on Friday night.  Freezing!  Even though it was colder than we would have liked, we ventured out for drinks and dinner.  Much crazier than our normal Friday nights, I know.

We live steps away from One if by Land, Two if by Sea, one of the most romantic (if not these most romantic) restaurant in the City.  However, neither one of us have ever been.  So we decided to stop in for a quick drink at the bar.  

Of course, someone got engaged while we were there.  I'm not sure how it was a surprise (if it was at all) because there was a videographer there!!  What did she think was happening?!

Saturday, the day all New Yorkers brunch, we decided to participate in the ongoing to tradition and headed to Calle Ocho on the Upper West Side to celebrate one of my friend's birthdays.  It's quite obvious, this restaurants is on a mission to get everyone drunk.  Unlimited 20 oz sangria's?!  Are you kidding?

For the prices, the food was actually pretty good as well.

Since we were already on the Upper West Side, we decided to knock a couple of things off our New York to do list.  The first stop was Tom's Restaurant.  I think it's pretty obvious what iconic sitcom this is from.  

Truth be told though, I never really got into Seinfeld.  Jaime loves it though, so I've definitely enjoyed a number of episodes in recent years.

I've made it a goal to carry our camera with us while we're out and about so we can capture some cool shots.  Here are a few additional photos from our adventures this weekend.  All very colorful!  I didn't mean for that to happen, but clearly it's a sign I'm longing for spring.

We also dropped by Grant's Tomb.  It was pretty cool.  Gorgeous building!  This was a shot of the park as we stood on the stairs of the tomb.

So as you can see, we had quite the eventful weekend!  Thank goodness we had nothing to do on Sunday (like we ever do).

Another busy week ahead, but in the meantime, I leave you with this gorgeous shot of the blue sky.  Warmer temperatures can't get here soon enough.
