One of the many well known things about this city is its obscene amount of things to do.
"Bored" is not a word in a New Yorker's vocabulary.
Adopting this local mindset, we took off in Greenwich Village on the Lower West Side in search of a classic underground Jazz Club.
Not long after searching did we find Smalls...my idea of a blues heaven.
The next thing on our hit list was hands down to find $1 pizza slice. So with a little more meandering we stumbled upon the perfect place to fuel up.
We woke up the next day feeling rejuvenated by the crisp air blowing through our window and the momentary rays of sunshine. So - wide awake - we threw on our close and trekked up to the Upper West Side near Columbia U for brunch.
Complete with memorabilia from the show, we sat down and made some cut-throat decisions as to what we were going to order.
And then on a spinach & feta omelette with sweet potato fries and the renowned NYC reuben sandwich.
As the museum kicked us out, we popped out onto the street and took a stroll before running into one of my favorite pastries in New York.
The Black&White cookie.
Now, some of you might think that is absolutely, 100%, positively repulsive, but let me assure you you will never have tasted something so beautifully created in your whole life.
I might be living this pizza up just a bit but I am recalling the experience now and it seems more than accurate.
Bless you, Jonny, for introducing us to such a mind-blowing meal.
Worth looking like a slob?
No question about it.
