I’m going to give it to you straight. Basically, my main purpose while visiting New York City is nourishing my belly. I eat breakfast while looking forward to lunch, just waiting for dinner to roll around, all to follow it up with some midnight pizza. The food is New York is THE. BEST. Thankfully, I do a lot of walking while in NYC, so we don’t get the fats too bad.
The restaurant highlight of this trip was Jongro, a Korean restaurant in Fleshing. I basically died and went to heaven. Next time you are in NYC, hit up Jongro and change your life!
Entertainment in NYC this time around was awesome too. We went and saw the Oh Hello! show with Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. It was hilarious. We loved it so much that we purchased tickets to go back and see it the next night as well.
I am also a huge Broad City and Abbi Jacobson fan, because who isn’t? We went to her book release where Lena Dunham just asked her a series of questions about her book. The fire alarm went off while we were there, and nobody got out of their seats. HA! Good thing it was a false alarm. Anyway, Abbi Jacobson calls her book “fan fiction,” but I think it’s more than that–like Pop Art of the millennial age, or something. Regardless, it’s a fun and super funny read/look that focuses on what she imagines certain famous figures (real and fictional) carry around in their bags.
As far as sight-seeing, we hit up ground zero, the MOMA, and more.
So sad Carnegie is closing.
This is my all-time favorite Jackson Pollock. It’s breathtaking. If you haven’t had the chance to see a Pollock in real life, make it a priority. You won’t regret it.
Andy Warhol in the flesh…well his soup cans, at least.
Sugar & Plumm was an awesome place for brunch. Plus, Megyn Kelly was eating here with her darling family. We didn’t bug her, though, because we don’t suck as humans.
Got to hang out with one of my BFFs, Amber. Woot.
