I had a great weekend! And I got to meet some new people, which was great! On Friday, Corey and I went to our favorite happy hour bar ($1 drinks) and met some people he works with. It monsooned through our dinner reservation so happy hour turned into happy two and a half hours. We grabbed some delicious sushi once the rain stopped and headed into Manhattan to meet up with a few of Corey's other friends.
There is an annual festival in New York. The name of it is Parked and it is a festival of food trucks of all different varieties.
Corey and I intended to check this out on Saturday. We headed to the Path, which runs on a bizarre schedule anyway on the weekends, only to be evacuated two stops away (in Jersey City not Manhattan) because of a police investigation of a suspicious package on our train. We then tried to take the ferry into New York but it wasn't running. Finally, we gave up and ordered dinner in and spent a relaxing night with just the two of us.
One of the great things about New York is that there is always a festival or special event of some kind. On Sunday, there was a Blues and Barbecue festival on Pier 54. One of Corey's friends from work and his girlfriend joined us and it was a great time. One of the vendors had a sauce called "Carolina" which made me feel like I was home.
We walked through Highline Park yesterday. It is a park built on elevated railroad tracks. Halfway through there are vendors selling coffee, gelato, etc. and the water fountains and elevators play funny "public service" announcements when you use them. I thought this place was really neat.
Corey and I have cooking a lot lately. Sometimes I'll cook a meal and sometimes he'll cook a meal but my favorite is when we work together and both cook parts. Last Thursday we made a Mexican dinner. He cooked fajitas and I made Spanish rice and fresh guacamole. Yum! Do you ever cook with your significant other?
