Last night after Matt and I got back from the city I fell asleep for 2 hours. There's construction going on in the subways and it seemed like every last train was out of service, so we walked everywhere. We figured out that we walked for about 4 hours in all and the last bit of it was about 40 blocks in a row.
We really enjoyed the walking as it was the most beautiful 60 degree January day- record highs according to the weather lady. It felt like spring and I wore a light jacket which I carried most of the time.
Ok, listen up.. if you find yourself in Manhattan make your way down to Otto, a pizzeria owned by Mario Batali. It is so good. We stopped in for lunch and had Gaeta, Scilian and Alfonso olives, artichokes alla romana salad, and vongole pizza which has clams, garlic and mozzarella. We had the kind of meal that causes every passerby to take a second, longing, look.
We also stopped in Uniqlo; a Japanese clothing store that's made its way to Manhattan.. I think you would really like it; a very fancy suit store; Lord 'n Taylor; and Barnes and Noble so I could pick up a few things including "the Hunger Games," finally. I've been meaning to buy it after reading about 892835 blog posts about how great the books are! You all sold me! I plan on starting it this coming week.
Ah it's Sunday already. That is silly. I have to do a ton of stuff before I leave tomorrow for Connecticut.. and Boston. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
