Empire State of Mind~more pics!

(Sing) When in New York, come and juggle whipped cream tomatoes, there's nothing you can't do.
See, it's way better!

So, we decided to walk the Brooklyn bridge to get pizza at what is supposed to be the "best pizza joint ever"
We walked....
and we walked....
And walked a little more... okay a lot more
And finally arrived to Grimaldi's pizza! The line up was over 18 parties deep. 
Waiting...
Yippeeee! It was a delicious pizza but what's with restaurants and their basil rations? We met two cool guys who sat bedside us and all in all it was worth the walk to Brooklyn.










So, the story of this dress. That night, after we walked the highline and had drinks, we ended up back in our West Village hood and found ourselves looking in the window of a sweet little cafe. A guy walks up to Tyler shakes his hand and says, "full respect man, I was just walking past and the vision of your lady, the back of that dress, is stunning." Tyler says, "Do I know you?" I cut in, "It's Kiefer Sutherland, my love." We proceed to tell him we're from Toronto. He erupts with glee, asks our names, shakes our hands and invites us over to the "dirty bar over there across the street" and disappears. But not before shouting 'bullocks" after I say, " Keifer, you just made the last night of our trip even cooler. " 
What a lovely time we had, so completely fun and terribly romantic. Much of this trip didn't get photographed because I didn't always want to lug around my SLR. Next time I'm upgrading my data plan! Do you have any mid summer plans? Trips you want to take but have talked yourself out of?
Book that flight, reserve that train seat! You know that saying, something about regretting the things you didn't do. Make it happen and then tell us all about it!
