Hey guys! I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween and weekend. Sorry for being MIA... my Halloween plans left me exhausted and with a slight cold. It's been a tea and Emergen-c kind of weekend. I think it's the constant change in temperature; right now it's hard to decide on what to wear. But I think the best solution is to dress in layers.
Blue smoke is not only the name one of my favorite restaurants, but it's also the color of my coat. It's something I immediately reach for when it gets nippy. It's not only warm, but also a statement in itself. I love the extra edge it adds to whatever I'm wearing.
After the photo shoot with my friend I headed down to East village to meet my boyfriend for lunch. He took me to Weschler's- a place known for their beer and brauts.
We didn't get beer, but we did try an assortment of what they had to offer. I got the platter that comes with two brats of my choosing and two sides (pretzel and sauerkraut). My boyfriend decided on a pork and veal sandwich, fries, and pretzel on the side. No sauerkraut for him (he hates vegetables). The place was intimate when we went, but my boyfriend said it can get pretty packed in the evening. I'm looking forward to trying one of their dark beers and their famous currywurst next time around.
Before ending the day, we spent a good amount of time at The Bean. Every time we head over to The Bean it's always full, there's only been another instance in which we actually got a table. We considered ourselves lucky, especially since it was Halloween.
Other than Starbucks, if a Bean is in the area more often than not you'd find me going there instead. They really know how to make a mean cappuccino. Since it was Halloween everyone was dressed up, including some of the workers. Children also came and went trick-or-treating, alas no coffee for them! The cherry on top was the dog dressed up as Chewbacca.
What did you guys do on Halloween?
