C had an interview in NY at the end of last week, and so we decided I would head out on a Thursday night bus and spend the (three-day) weekend together in the Big Apple (before he took off for yet another week of interviews). New York can be tiring, but we had a really fun weekend that was a good mix of taking it easy and exploring the city. Here’s a map with most of our weekend’s activities marked in green (blue markers are from a weekend I spent in NYC in November, and pink ones are places we have yet to check out).
We also tried to hunt down some Vendome macarons, first at Saks and then at their pop-up shop in Brooklyn. But Saks was out (“more on Tuesday”) and the pop-up shop never opened (“We put it on our website that the shop was cancelled.” Um, no, you didn’t – I was looking at their website – and FB – as they were saying this to C. Later that day the website was updated). So we were 0 for 2 in locating what look to be delectable macarons. C’est la vie.
