NYC Meetup with Tina

NYQuick update for the weekend. Saturday I had to work. After work we headed to Fairfield and went to the movies to see "Rush". I thought it was a well done movie and was fun to see Niki Lauda's story on the big screen. It's so rare to hear about any prominent Austrian figures here in the US. Had fun at the movies and then headed to Flipside for dinner. Always enjoy that place. I love places where you can create custom burgers/sandwiches with tons of different toppings, cheeses, sauces and whatnot. So yummy.  

On Sunday I took the train into the city to meet up with my Long Island friend Tina in Manhattan. We had lunch at Landbrot Bakery & Cafe. It was a place I had wanted to check out for ages and ages and really thought it would be amazing. It wasn't terrible but definitely ended up being a lot different than what I had pictured from the website. I ordered schnitzel which came with potato salad and some sort of spaetzle. The schnitzel was just ok and the potato salad super vinegary. All in all not terrible but definitely overpriced and overhyped for what it was. I ended up taking some pastries home which were pretty good. 

Still had fun chatting with Tina. After we were done at Landbrot we headed back uptown. Walked around Times Square for a bit before getting some Starbucks and settling down in Bryant Park. The weather was gorgeous, a truly perfect fall day, so it was nice to sit outside. 

Today we are working 1/2 a day and are off to the Catskills for a 2 night stay after that. Looking forward to a few days away even though the weather is supposed to be pretty crappy. Not the best weather to be going into the mountains, that's for sure. Cold rain, possibly even some snow showers. Oh well. We will make the best of it I am sure. 

Mail Update: Received letters still owe a response to: none.
