new york city: day two

Morning friends! On to day two...
9:30a - Get up, after sleeping in (9:30a is sleeping in for G&I) and surprisingly don't feel too bad from the night before
10a -Get breakfast. Guy insists I get my breakfast sandwich on a hard roll instead of a bagel because "that's what New Yorkers do." (He's from Long Island)
10:30 - SHOP. Now it was Sunday... so things randomly started opening between 11 and 12p so we walked around Rockafeller Center and took pictures.
11-1p - SHOP MORE. I hit Anthro hard... only buying off the sale rack however. I was proud of myself. Guy found the best deals at Banana which he was happy about. Oh, and he got the world's most flattering jeans at Barney's. I had never been to Barney's before but it was an experience in itself. It was all gay men shopping. While I was sitting in the dressing room waiting for Guy I had literally 10 different gay men coming and going asking my opinion on what they were trying on. I would have stayed there all day frankly.
1:30p - Got lunch at 5 Napkin Burger... based on the recommendation of a friend of ours who said he dreams about their burger. We got it and I can see why. It was amazing.
2:30p - Went to the Titantic exhibition that the Discovery Channel was putting on. Very interesting. Highly recommend.
3:30p - Wandered around Times Square for a bit. You have to when you're in NYC right?
4:30p - Headed back to the hotel for a nap. We were exhausted after an already full day with our whole night ahead of us!
7:00p - Left the hotel in search of Thai food. Were given a neighborhood ( I think in the Theatre District?) that had lots of options. Boy did it ever. We found a place, which I can't remember the name of, that epitomizes the hole in the wall restaurant but was really good. We figured it was a good sign that we were the only Caucasian folk in the room. Only down side was that they didn't serve alcohol and we didn't know to BYOB.
9:00p - Got a drink at some random bar
10:00p - Decided it wasn't work paying $11/cocktail when we were still so tired so we hit up a convenience store for some ML and chocolate and headed back to the hotel. Best decision. We stayed up, watched some random shows, listened to the honking outside our window and had a great end to an already wonderful day!

day three coming soon!
