Third and final installment

Here are the last of my pictures that I wanted to share!

This display was right outside a restaurant in Chelsea. It was so pretty that I couldn't resist.

The exterior of 202, the Nicole Farhi boutique/cafe in the Meatpacking District.

'Nuff said.

We ran into a street fair in midtown next to our second hotel of the weekend (the Park Central - highly, highly not recommended. Please do yourselves a huge favor and avoid this hotel like the plague).

However, the street fair was great. We found a crepe stand. I also found the keffiyehs that my sister asked me to find for her. Apparently they are the latest hip hop accessory and she can't find them anywhere, but we saw them at the fair and I bought her a whole bunch in different colors.

I bought a crepe with strawberries, bananas, and nutella. I was in heaven.

We had dinner at Docks in the Upper West Side one night and got this great banana bread pudding for dessert.

Carnegie Deli, Mr Hazel's favorite place in New York after Yankee Stadium. If he could, he would eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner here.

I've had a busy week. It's especially crazy whenever I go away for the weekend, but the rest of the week was jam packed with things so it added to the craziness. On Monday we went to the baseball game and had the privilege of hearing the Gay Men's Chorus sing the national anthem. They were incredible, and I was so proud of my baseball team for inviting them. We also saw Rob Reiner there!

I am obsessed with the new Angels & Airwaves album, "I-Empire". And by obsessed, I mean obsessed. It is incredibly good and I can't stop listening to it. Some of the songs give me goosebumps. They are currently my #2 favorite band after U2, and that's saying a lot, considering how much I love my Bono.

I forgot to ask you, did you see anyone famous at Pastis?? Anyone famous anywhere?

And I'm wearing my pink keffiyeh today, thank you. Very Yasser.

Man, that banana bread pudding was delish!! My stomach is growling just thinking about it (and the fantabulous clam chowder). So good seeing you guys! As always, it went waaaaay too fast.

HMM, I will have to blog about that awful hotel - but long story short, the service SUCKED.

And NO, we didn't see anyone famous ANYWHERE! It was like LA all over again - I don't have the best luck with celebrity sightings, I can never work as a paparazzi!

K, you are missing out on nutella! I'll have to give you a jar. It's the BEST STUFF.

Thanks, Tracy! I'm glad you liked the pictures!
