Scenes from a weekend (iv)

Tons of great food and friends this weekend. Here's just a (long) snippet.

1 + 2) Cappuccino at Kaffe 1668 on a Saturday. It was a little strange coming here not on a workday.
3) Joyce and I checked out the new Takahachi Bakery in my neck of the woods. So overwhelming. So many good choices. I left with this cherry blossom macaron and an earl grey financier. Both DELICIOUS. I was also eyeing their pain au chocolat. Must return to get.

4-8) Wafels & Dinges! Considering how close this place is to me, it's a wonder how I haven't tried it yet. We were on our way to brunch...but decided to share a waffle anyway. We got the Dinges unlimited aka WMD (Wafel of Massive Deliciousness). Our weapons of choice included ice cream, bananas, strawberries, nutella, and chocolate fudge. Massive deliciousness indeed. This sucker lasted no more than 1 or 2 minutes in our hands. (I then later had another belgian waffle after dinner at Petite Abeille with bananas, ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and strawberry sauce.) The enormity of my appetite never ceases to amaze me.

9-11) Brunch at Fresh Salt. $10 prix-fixe. I have been here once for snacks/drinks but have been wanting to try the brunch. Very good food all around. :)

12-17) There's all this crazy shit set up in the Seaport for the World Cup. Not dressed appropriately at all for these games, we had our hand at it anyway. Too bad it felt about 100 degrees with humidity today. Ughh.

18-22) My friends put up with a lot of paparazzi-ing on my part. Sorry, guys! I love these shots of them though. :P
23-24) Outfit/accessory details. :) Loving my friend's new Minkoff bag.

Whew. Just cannot slow down in this city.


  1. Oh, to be young; eat tons and stay thin! Envy, just a bit.

    Very nice environmental portraiture on your part. Wondering how a 24mm on a 5D (or film SLR) would behave in your hands, hmm?

    Good stuff.

  2. My stomach just rumbled. That waffle/ice cream looks incredible. Must find them!

    Oh my god they're on 86th Street on Sundays. I have to make a detour soon. Hmm my sad wallet might make that problematic though.

  3. This looks like so much fun!! Hanging out with your girlfriends is always awesome (especially when lots and lots of ice cream and chocolate are involved, lol)
