It’s hard to put to words how many different experiences you can have on a daily, weekly, and nightly basis, not to mention the weekends, weirdos AND amazing people you come across in-between in this city. We live to experience EVERYTHING because you absolutely never know who you’ll meet, what you’ll see or how the night will start and end. And let us tell you, we have stories to prove this theory. We’re not sure if it’s because of the busy lifestyle or if it’s just hard to say ‘no’ with so many options, but who cares, we live once right? And..please don’t say YOLO. Ok, enough with being philosophical, let’s talk how we like to play in our favorite city, (yes, we turned New York into our personal playground). Owned! ..or maybe borrowed. Luckily for us, all that practice on the preschool playgrounds really payed off because we are certified pros at making new discoveries, kissing boys (and then pretending to hate them), eating consistently and then taking a much-needed nap. Although the much needed nap is still, ‘much needed’ since the move to the concrete jungle. With that said, we’d like to share some of our finest moments that made the cut– we say ‘some’ because there’s many more to come and hopefully it will give you some ideas when you visit!
Shakespeare’s interactive show Sleep No More takes place at the McKittrick Hotel, but on other nights the rooftop is where all the real interaction takes place.

During our walk we always look up
Aside from dining out and partying, we like to stir things up at some of our favorite mixology bars. There’s so many, that we typically hop around to try one of each, (don’t worry this is purely for the blog). eh hem. Some of our favorites are Dead Rabbit for some serious mixology, and even some happy hour offerings with oysters (yum!). The Daily–which is connected to one of my favorite restaurants Public– offers a rotating ‘daily’ menu that changes with new cocktail options and food. I personally have a small attention span, so this keeps me intrigued. ECC or Experimental Cocktail Club, and Mulberry Project, which has no menu just ingredients on a chalk board to choose from– the mixologists will make this their project. So many more that we’ll include on another post about speakeasies.
Girls night out
Hello Sir, can you mix that with jalepeño
It’s absolutely amazing to have a Central Park Day with your friends. It’s our own personal smorgasbord of cheese and fruit, many bottles of rosé, chips and dip and some charcuterie. Yes, we do it right. A combination of that, and hey, let’s meet the neighbors and it’s a good day!
Reflector sunnies of course
We’ll leave you with our many trips to Brooklyn, which always feels like an adventure even though it’s only two stops away. We’ll cover Brooklyn in another post because it’s definitely hip, cool and full of interesting events.
