FIVE FAVORITE THINGS: OCTOBER

Here’s a list of what I’m enjoying this month…

  1. Catching a Few Flicks: Heading out to see Hector and the Search for Happiness and Gone Girl this month.  Hector is one of my favorite books.
  2. rockefellerSkating at Rockefeller Center’s Ice Rinkduring a beautiful day on opening weekend in NYC.
  3. Visiting a Hard to Find Speakeasy in Grand Central Station
  4. A Visit to One of Travel + Leisure’s Coolest Rooftop Bars in America: The Skylark.  The review – the views were breathtaking, the service and drinks were not so great.
  5. Taking a trip to the top of the Washington Monument: finally reopened this year after earthquake damage which closed the monument for two and a half years.

FIVE FAVORITE THINGS: SEPTEMBER

Here’s a list of what I’m enjoying this month…leaves_3

  1. Riding National Geographic’s #4 most scenic American train: Cass Scenic Railroad in West Virginia during what should be peak fall foliage.
  2. Stand Up Paddleboarding: on the Potomac before the sun sets on Summer.
  3. Dolcezza: because you need something sweet and cool after paddleboarding and this is gelato is almost as good as traveling to Italy for an afternoon.  I had the Watermelon Vodka, Lemon Opal Basil and the Pineapple Mint flavors.
  4. Cool Fall Breezes
  5. Trip Planning (and calling for all suggestions): for New York City!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Community

This week’s challenge is a photo of Community.

Taken during an afternoon lunch rush at Katz’s Delicatessen in New York, the line is long and the community is busy chowing down on the famous food.  Katz’s is the scene of the crime for the When Harry Met Sally orgasm scene.
