- High: Two great weekends in a row [let’s be honest, every weekend is great]
- Low: My lack of motivation come Sunday
It is gorgeous outside, and has been for most of the past week. Spring is here!
This very weekend one year ago, it was our 48hour trip to NYC to find an apartment. However, Dan was only there fro 24 of the 48 hours, so he missed out on some great viewings.
And finally, this!
And after two days of looking [only one day with Dan] I found the perfect spot. Luckily Dan trusted be, because he signed the papers and put the $ down, site unseen. This time last year was quite hectic. I can’t believe we are coming up on our 1 year NYC anniversary!
Well, as you know, most of my posts include food in some aspect. [not really sure what that says about me…]But as a change of pace, I figured I’d focus on something complementary to food, DRINKS!
Dan and I have been itching to hit up the speakeasy scene in NYC and last weekend, we finally did. Our friend Dave was visiting, so the three of us headed out to uncover a hidden gem. [Literally hidden].
We walked down some random steps on 17th street and rang the doorbell to Raines Law Room. We were greeted by a soft-spoken maître d’ that told us to come back in an hour, which we did. We missed our call for a table, but got to hang out in “the Kitchen” and watch the magic happen.
The mixologist was quite the shaker and maker. Continuously pouring, stirring, shaking and serving. It was so fun to witness. Our drinks were phenomenal. Definitely worth the extra money. [I think they were around $12 or so dollars each? Maybe more].
And if the drinks don’t impress you enough, the décor most likely will. The plush, dimly light living room feel with velvet lounges brings you back to the prohibition times, if you weren’t already feeling it.
It was such a fun time – Great for enjoying an artistic cocktail while conversing with friends. No loud music, just the background sounds of fellow guests and classy tones. I can’t wait to try the other secret hot spots this city has tucked away!
Talk amongst yourselves, I’ll give you a topic…Drinks. What’s your pick for poison? I’m usually a vodka or wine drinker and occasionally gin. Never beer, never!
