As some of you may already know, my dad came to visit this past weekend. Not only was it wonderful to see him, but I was finally able to check off a handful of my to-do’s on my New York City summer ’12 bucket list:
- See a Broadway play. Or two. We may have gotten carried away…
- Sunday brunch at Loeb Boathouse in Central Park.
Yes, that boathouse. As you can tell, the view was beautiful and the food was just as wonderful. Trust me, I had to resist Instagraming my friend’s creamy macaroni and cheese. I blame my broccoli and feta omelet.
Although we did have a bit of a wait to be seated (perfect for waiting for the rest of our party to navigate their way there), my dad and I were content watched the Wimbledon men’s finals while sipping our mimosas amongest a crowd of bow-ties.
P.s. No use making reservations for Sunday brunch; just arrive early and put your name on the list. Hope for the best and enjoy a cocktail conveniently located next to the outside dinning area.
- Take a casual stroll through Central Park.
O.k., I might have already done this. Multiple times this summer in fact. But walking around with a fresh pair of eyes makes you appreciate the little things that make this park so famous.
- Make it to happy hour at the Frying Pan!
Despite the prices, I cannot remember a single bad evening spent at the Frying Pan. It’s notoriously my friends’ and I’s favorite place to get together after work most Friday nights. Pitchers, fun crowd, plus great views of the Hudson? It’s definitely hard to compete with.
Are any of these on your New York City bucket list? Let’s hear them.
