Hipstamatic October

Thursday, October 31, 2013

October didn't really go by as quickly as one would expect at this point in the year, or in life, but what I have been shocked about is how quickly it's gone from warm-to-hot to very cold.

This month, I got to try a lot of things I've been wanting to try for a while now. Like the Australian restaurant Public in Nolita. (Unfortunately I don't have any photos.) I'm not sure what I was waiting around for -- a phrase I find myself saying more and more often as I get older.

Read My Lips tea David's Tea
"Read My Lips" tea from David's Tea. I tried the Trafalgar Square tea last year at Alice's Tea Cup and fell in love with the wonderful execution of a chocolate mint tea. This one's not nearly as good as Alice's, I'm afraid to report.

The Green Table Chelsea Market
Grilled cheese sandwich and Harvest salad

The Green Table Chelsea Market
Vegetable and mushroom pie from The Green Table. So, so delicious. I highly recommend this spot.

Paid a visit to the Storm King Art Center in Mountainville, New York. It's just over an hour outside of Manhattan, and basically a 500-acre outdoor sculpture park. I'd heard about this place a few years ago, but was shocked to discover that it's been around since the 1960s. Why weren't we taken there on a school field trip?

I took a bunch of photos on my other camera that I haven't been able to upload yet, but once I do, I'll devote an entire post to the beauty that was Storm King Art Center in autumn.

Joe's Crab Shack
Found a little friend inside a clam from Joe's Crab Shack.

Red velvet cupcakes Dallas BBQ
I used to adore cupcakes, but after working for 3 years very close to a Magnolia's Bakery, I overcame my cupcake habit and haven't really found myself reaching for one at all. After a meal at the ever lovely Dallas BBQ, our waitress gave us a pair of red velvet cupcakes, on the house. I didn't even know that Dallas BBQ did dessert. These were the very best red velvet cupcakes I've ever had, save for the ones I helped my college friend Laura whip up. Who woulda thunk it?

Tardis Halloween West Village
Ambled by this West Village brownstone all dressed up for Halloween. (I hope it's a "costume.")

Happy Halloween!
