American Thanksgiving 2012

After I took this photo, I zonked out in a “short nap” on the bed. For this Friendsgiving, we had hot pot. The BFF and I took the train into Chinatown where we overstuffed my old lady trolly with hot pot ingredients. (But so thankful we didn’t have to carry it all by hand.) Not…

American Thanksgiving 2011

This was my first American Thanksgiving. (My jschool friends and I, all non-New Yorkers, decided to go see the infamous Macy’s Day Parade. We braved the crowds and stationed ourselves at 59th Street, right in front of the Columbus Circle Whole Foods.) At night, my BFF and I booked a turkey dinner at one of…

And especially New York pizza, which to me is far too sloppy, cheesy, gooey — everything someone wants in a slice of za. But…

Ruby’s

Ruby’s 219 Mulberry St New York, NY 10012 http://www.rubyscafe.com There was this one time in the office, when I was interning in SoHo, that Shannon and I planned on going for lunch. We were office brats, eager to go out for a walk and get some fresh air. (The day before she dragged me onto the blocked…
