One of the things that made me so excited about New York was the food.
So I looked forward to yesterday evening,
when we'd get to really try it out!
We were headed to see X-Men on the Upper West Side
(thank you Groupon)
and decided to get something to eat around the theatre
Now here was the problem,
I was cranky.
Cranky because we had walked all over the city.
Cranky because I was hungry.
Cranky because I was tired.
Cranky because it was hot.
Cranky because I had a headache (probably because I was so hungry).
and cranky because I had blisters on my feet.
Not that I'm trying to make excuses or anything...
We were trying to find a decent restaurant on Yelp
looking like tourists on a sidewalk who don't know which way they're going
when finally we just resigned to find whatever we could on our own
because neither of us could tolerate me much longer
we started heading down a street where Steve said he saw some food
when this lady stopped us saying we wouldn't find any food down there unless we wanted "fast food or overpriced junk"
we were at her mercy.
she then proceded to tell us about a cute little Italian Cafe down the street with cheap delicious food
thank you New York lady, we are indebted to you eternally.
The cafe turned out to be a real gem,
I was in heaven.
and in spite of my crankiness,
I still love New York.
