Modern Friends, I am still alive and feeling a bit better since my most recent post. I'm just spectacularly busy right now trying to get ready for my NYC trip.
So, speaking of NYC, I've only been there once in my life and that was six years ago with my parents. This time I'll be on my own for the most part. I'm working at our company's headquarters and will be working some ridiculous hours, and when I say ridiculous, I mean something along the lines of 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Fortunately, I have some fabulous co-workers who will be there (many of whom I've never met in person), so I'll have people to hit the town with at 2:01 a.m. But it does mean I'll have some free time to explore the city on my own while everyone else I know there is at their normal 9-5 type jobs.
When I visited six years ago, I hit up most of the touristy things to do. This time, I want to do the non-touristy things which means I need suggestions of any of you who know NYC better than I. Where should the company buy my lunches and where should I blow three months worth of my shopping budget?
Also, any of you northeast bloggers, I'd love to meet up with you for lunch/brunch on Saturday or Sunday if you're around. Let me know!
