(This crepe was my sister, not mine-too dough-y for my liking.)
You know, while in New York, you must go out and eat! It doesn't matter if it's the neighborhood bodega or the chic little eatery in midtown. Going out to eat is an event (and a month of conscious eating well and exercising all shot to shit in less than a week!) I ordered this club sandwich for lunch, and when I tell you that it was orgasmic, I am not exaggerating! It was the most delicious club sandwich I've ever had, and it was served on a baguette with a side of mesclun (sp?) greens. O-M-Gee!!!!! It was sick. The bacon was so meaty and tender-not crispy, crumbly, and non-existent like some club sandwiches. Then for my last meal of my trip, we had to go to Sylvia's! It was....SICK! Sylvia's is old school soul food-greens that taste like meat, lol. Kick-ass potato salad. BBQ ribs so good, you'll slap yo mama.....Enough food for two meals-maybe three for you bird-like eaters...
(Yes, I ate every damn morsel!)
My sister also booked us for these "free" makeovers at Dior in Macy's. Macy's is always a freaking madhouse-no matter what time of day or year that you go. They were doing some kind of garden or floral something, and just imagine all the regular shopper/tourists paired with these garden enthusiasts/tourists: PURE D. HELL! Anyway, after being spackled with over $100.00 worth of product and gunk (by a chick who knew nothing about what colors to use on black skin), I ended up buying $54 worth of crap. I cannot BELIEVE I paid $24 for a tube of mascara. Slap me now! I felt obligated ya know? That makeover wasn't so free after all...

So that was basically my trip-eating, but you do a lot of walking. I'll end with a shot of this disgusting billboard I spotted on the block. How can you be a person of God and preach this kind of sentiment? What happened to separation of church and state? What happened to human kindness and decency? What happened to getting your facts straight before advertising this garbage?
