I would like to say being on holiday has allowed me to sleep in everyday. That would be incorrect however. I have been up around 8am everyday. Today was no exception.
We had arranged to have lunch with Stefan in Shake Shack at 12:30. The line however was too long for the family. Instead we went to Roxys Diner just across the road. This was very poor. We all walked down to Macy's, where Stefan returned to work. We split up to cover more ground. I went with my dad so he could purchase some New York Metz gear. Inevitably I ended up purchasing two more items from Armarni Jeans. A shirt & hooded pullover had been reduced & represented quite a bargain. What I didn't appreciate until I got to the till was that there was a further 65% off the reduced price to go with my 10% forefinger discount. They were practically free! Even Alan ended up purchasing a T shirt from Armarni. We all rendezvoused at Macy's Bar & Grill for cocktails & snacks, before heading to my parents hotel.
In another annual occurrence I met Stefan for happy hour in Bontanica at 18:30. Once again their Happy Hour drinks were phenomenal. Plans for food were delayed as were joined by Eddie, Seamus, Sarah, & her friend also called Sarah. Eventually people started to head off after a few rounds. I took Stephen & Eddie into little Italy where we were able to be the last table in a piazza place. Stefan & I had opted to share a large pizza, then Eddie decided to add another to the mix for good measure. Somehow we got through these monsters pies with some Brooklyn lager to wash it down. A great way to bring a very fun evening to an end.
