Happy Monday! I can’t believe the weekend is over, but I guess I shouldn’t complain. It was a fun couple of days! Saturday evening featured a reunion with my 3 of my college housemates (hi Jess, Agnes, and Anj). We started the night at Jess’s place in Brooklyn Heights. Anj has a birthday coming up, so of course wine & cake were in order! Anj made this mini-cake. Isn’t the fondant frosting and decoration cool?
After an hour or so of catching-up, we headed out to DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Brooklyn Overpass). This is a really cool area of Brooklyn with cobbled streets, artsy bars, and beautiful views of Manhattan. Our destination restaurant/bar was called Superfine. The interior featured a long bar, a section with tables & chairs, and an orange-felted pool table. Nate joined us at this point and we all grabbed drinks and settled in for some good conversation. I drank a pint of Hoegaarden and really enjoyed the light wheat-y flavor and the lemon slice. I like it when my drinks come with fruit!
After leaving Superfine, we took in some views of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline. It was a perfect night – calm, breezy, and around 70 degrees. Ahhhh.
After we finished up in DUMBO, we found ourselves at a 24 hour diner called Happy Days. Agnes and I shared a plate of crispy diner fries, but I must have been too tired to snap a photo. Shortly after 1am, Nate and I hopped on the 2 train and began the long journey back to Inwood. I was a sleepy girl by the time we got home, but spending the night reuniting with my college roomies made it 110% worth it! Now if I could just get them all to move to NYC permanently….
