THINGS WE'VE SEEN AND THINGS WE'VE DONE




so a few weekends ago we hit up sara beth's in tribeca for brunch with our friends,
followed by the playground at pier 25





the other weekend we attempted to get to governor's island for the millionth time this year...


...only to find out after ten minutes underground that the train we needed wasn't running for the day.
(it's just not be meant to be, governor's island.)






we've been going on endless picnics in the sunshine this month, 
and brandon's been testing the various roach coaches about town.
(gives this one a "bland, yet heavily garlicky" rating.)


and my latest mystery to solve:
i've never actually seen any of these newsstands stocked with newspapers....

and now we are all caught up.


p.s.
if you're in the city you should really try sara beth's for brunch.
the tribeca location, to be precise.
because the one uptown, as my good friend nicole says, "looks like a retirement home."

  4. I KNEW that was Sarabeth's from the photo - we went there on our last trip to NYC. Great for a family dinner too in addition to brunch. Four flowers juice - just sayin'.

  11. Maybe it's because everything has sold out but when I click the shop your closet link it goes to a blank page with just a diamond in the middle (under your header, more precisely?). The same thing happens when I click About. But it didn't used to?

  17. I adore Sarabeth's on the UWS - one of my fave places to go with my mom when she visits! The club is so so good! And about Governor's Island, I've been going the past 3 years with my now 2 year old for the Jazz Age Lawn Party and it's definitely worth the continued attempts. This last Jazz Age Lawn Party the lines were the craziest I've seen them (2 hour wait to get on the shuttle!), but a fellow mom had mercy on me and let her hop right in line and get on the shuttle with her and her family. Hooray for mommy empathy!
