Scenes from New York [January, 2018]

We've just had ten days in one of our favorite places with some of our favorite people. We got to see friends we miss on a regular basis (hi Camille, NiRey, Alexis, Fran, Justin, Ben, other Ben, Jay, K.V., and Casey!) and some folks we've talked to for a long time on the *internet* but never got to meet in person (hi David, Damon, Sean, and JP!). We had a mini Brooklyn late night food tour, gay drinks in the West Village, a trip to the Big Apple Circus (humane circus!), wine in one of the nicest homes we'll ever be in right across from the MET, work meetings in Manhattan that made us feel like we are actual adults and not just manic southern man children, a full self-guided pizza tour (YouTube on this coming soon, & will be linked here!), a tour of the gorgeous West Elm Headquarters in Dumbo, a walk through snow-filled Central Park, and exactly one million and three coffees.

Favorite eats: margherita pizza from Roberta's [duh] and from Emmy Squared // pepperoni pizza from Prince St. Pizza // Norwegian salmon bagel from Russ & Daughters // soup dumplings from Nom Wah Tea Parlor // cauliflower ceviche from Gaudalupe Inn // huge vegan Ethiopian spread at Bunna Cafe

Favorite moments: Justin showing us an amazing meal and experience at Chinese Tuxedo // flower shopping on the street with Morgan // final meal at Roberta's with Camille // gay brunch with our biological fathers Jay & Ben at Meme's (so good but skip the panna cotta cereal tbh) // seeing West Elm's soon-to-launch hotel models (thanks Landon!!) // late night Brooklyn food tour with Fran & Justin [The Commodore, Fette Sau, Pies 'n' Thighs] // sinner's dinner with Fran, Justin, Ben, and new friends Amy, Mina, Nate, and Josh // three queer nights spent at The Rosemont

Thanks to all of our Internet babies for the hot tips on where to go, we tried to do as much as possible!
