1000th Post!

I just realized this day was coming  last week and it just about floored me.  I never thought I would write so much when I first began.  I started this blog after reading countless others and felt the need to give back.  As a transplant to NYC I remember how daunting this city can be at first and the many blogs that helped me along the way.  Now I truly consider NYC my home and I can't imagine living anywhere else. I thought I would share a few things I love to do the most in this city to celebrate...

I love strolling past Gramercy Tavern early morning and looking into the calm, empty restaurant.  I usually close my eyes and picture the people who will be dining there later in the day.  I imagine the first timers and feel excited and a bit jealous for the experience they're about to have.  I almost wish I could have a first time experience there all over again. 


I love walking home from work each day.  When I first moved to the city I had a mission to walk Broadway from start to finish and experience the culture change in each neighborhood.  Now 12 years later I've done so much more than that...whether it's over the Brooklyn Bridge from DUMBO or across the Ed Koch from Queens, I can always find a different path to explore each unique area of this city.



I love spending the day hopping around the amazing craft beer bars and stores in the city.  I've been a regular at Blind Tiger for years and now I feel right at home at some of the new guys like Good Beer and Top Hops.  It's an amazing time to be a craft beer fan and I can't wait to see how it continues to grow.



I love Eataly:)


I love every new moment with Mr. T (nicknames excluded), even the ones that may seem daunting and scary.  If you never try something new you never know what you can become and it's great to have someone at your side when doing so.


Thanks for reading and I hope I helped you out at least once in these 1000 posts...let's get back to the amazing weekend of food ahead.  Cheers!
