New York

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

My cousin was in town from Colorado and she wanted to go to New York to check out her friends restaurant. So, obviously, my sister, my boyfriend, and I said yes. Being in Ohio means you're only six hours from NYC and Chicago and y'all know how much I like adventures. The drive wasn't too bad and we got into the city late, but early enough to close out a 4:00 a.m. casino. It was a really fast, whirlwind of a trip -- which is always fun. When I travel, I'm less of a tourist/plans kind of gal. I like to see where I end up, where the wind or the locals take us. Which is great because there was a lot of wind and a very fun and adventurous local to show us the nightlife of Williamsburg.

My brother suggested we go to the Upright Citizen Brigade's Sunday show "ASSSSCAT 3000". We waited in line for two hours and didn't get tickets, but we were in a stand by line. That's crazy, right? Maybe, but we got in! Amy Poehler was performing! Yes, Amy Poehler!! I have a mad crush on her and am obsessed with Parks and Recreation. There were other actors/comedians too and it was brilliant. The guy that plays Jean-Ralphio (Ben Schwartz) on Parks & Rec was there too and he might've been the funniest person. Also Brittany Snow, Nick Kroll, and a few others! The theater is so small and intimate. It was wonderful and hilarious. If you're ever in NYC or LA, GO GO GO! Did I mention it was free?! Seeing Amy so up close and personal was a real treat.

We also ate a lot. Stayed up 'till the sun came out and walked, walked, walked. I have more photos, another outfit, and some breakfasts to talk about.
