This very well may be a HTBT- had to be there, however I want to share this New York stop and document the fun I had in the city on Friday night!
1st- it was a great end to a wonderful work week. Figure eights are all over our lives in fun ways- including Granville connections off of NG Road. Picking up from last week's connection of Granville and Denison- Granville friend Lori Conway and I unveiled the point we'd both be in NYC on Friday. We were indeed able to connect to toast the end of the week. Then dear young alumna I met while working at Denison my 1st stint and have stayed in touch made her way to the city. Catching up in person, beyond Facebook- priceless and very meaningful! And introducing Lindsay to Licking County friends a bonus! Next up- Baldwin family! Baldwin family rendezvous was pure bonus! Kelly and I have kept in touch with our travel itineraries hoping for a sync to NYC- this was the weekend! I love that it included seeing Spencer and Morgan's sibling love, Spencer and Erica's NY/college life and the full family fun! I always laugh and smile with Craig and Kelly and Friday was not a disappointment. The setting of our fun is worth sharing...it is why the blog started- helpful hints!
2nd- where to go in NYC! My NYC fun:
-The London Hotel's bar- just a great upscale spot in a great location.
-The Park- LOVED this restaurant with multiple/ various cocktail areas- http://www.theparknyc.com Three cheers for Spencer and Erica- Kent students for tracking this down, just off the High Line!
-Mumufuku's Milk Bar- oh my gosh! S and E lit up as it was described, Lindsay verified and it became the perfect end to a great night and good week. Laughter, smiling so much my cheeks hurt and an uber journey with a favor and education took us to the upper west side's milk bar. I enjoyed it so much I went back to the midtown location for breakfast and to secure treats for the kids! The name was fun to say, the concept of cereal milk as a flavor is ingenious and the reality that it was really good was all bonus for a memory I'll never soon forget! Try it yourself if you find yourself in a city with a Mumufuku Milk Bar! http://milkbarstore.com My life on Newark-Granville Life was full of fun in NYC!
