Bright Lights...Big City...Day 2

Day 2

I knew we would be doing a lot of walking on Saturday, so I wore one of my favorite flowey Target dresses, belted, with tights and boots, per usual.  My mom lent me her lacy scarf to top off my outfit!!

We started our day in Chelsea starting with the Chelsea Market.  Wow, so much amazing food!  I am not really a foodie, but I really so respect the process.  There were fancy bakeries with delicious cookies and cupcakes, a gourmet grocery market, so many organic and locally grown food options...
Plus, being the big Food Network groupie that I am, it was cool to be in the home of their test kitchen and studios and to stroll around the market that Bobby Flay always talks about.

After walking around Chelsea,  we decided to head over to Washington Square...it was a longer walk that we anticipated.  I love to sit and people watch and this was a great place to do it.  Musicians, tourists, teenagers, suits on their way home form work, artists...Such an eclectic mix of humanity.

Besides the quesadillas from Tribeca Taco Truck, my other favorite food is fresh cut Belgium Fries from Pomme Frites.   These amazing fries come in a giant cone with a choice of 40 different dipping sauces...I chose cheddar cheese, mexican ketchup and a pesto cream.  I would have taken a photo of the fries, but I snarfed all the delicious potatoes down the minute I sat down at the table.  Pomme Frites is amazing...it is this little store front with 2 tables and a counter in the back and there is always a line out the door!
After all that walking and eating, we were exhausted.  After a little nap, I got a manicure and pedicure from a really neat spa down the street from the hotel...I love a good massage chair!
Then, since we were still tired with sore feet, we grabbed a few slices of pizza, ate them in bed, and went to sleep early...Sunday we planed to get an early start at the Museum of Modern Art.

Stay tuned for day 3...full of art

Ok, I'm totally hungry now. I wonder if I can use the French fries to convince my husband we need to take a trip to NYC this year? It just might work :)

Love the lacy scarf...perfect finishing touch!
