Today is one of those days I wanted to get away with a quick post but just couldn’t get around it so decided to write about last weekend.

Last Saturday, we went to NY. It was a visit to check multiple items from our list

We left home around 9am. I made Poha for breakfast and packed it in multiple boxes for everyone to eat during the drive.

Main item in the list is Adi playing piano at Carnegie Hall. This is her 3rd time performing at this prestigious place. It was a winner’s recital held for young musicians who secured first/second place in a competition conducted in December last year.

Next stop was at Washington park in the hope to savor the dosa made by NY’s best dosa man but unfortunately he was not available that day. May be next time!

Then, headed to NY’s best grilled cheese shop that Adi wanted to visit for a long time. Do you see the cheese in picture below? Kids also enjoyed the best Mac and cheese from that shop.

Next stop at pop bar. Their hot chocolate on a stick was to die for. The taste is still lingering in my tongue. Kids bought waffle bar dipped in chocolate and topped with nuts

Next, it was time for momo’s from a street vendor. Chicken momo’s with basil pesto garlic sauce

After wrapping up the food marathon, we went to the recently popular spot – the Hudson yards. The structure of Vessel building was intricate. We walked up to the top, then visited the nearby mall. For those interested, Vessel has limited free pass everyday. It costs $10 per head after the free pass is over. So, book your slot 1 or 2 weeks ahead of the visit.

The mall had an interesting Sequin art wall which anyone can play around with. It was pretty cool. Adi and LHB drew and wrote some stuffs. Can you guess what Adi drew here?

I had a latte from the mall. Don’t ask for the price.

Then went to the place that is a yearly tradition to visit every year during winter holidays and take a family picture. Rockefeller centre to see the big tree and ice skating rink. The place that never ceases to amaze me. It is one of my wish to skate in that rink with someone dear and near.

Last stop was of course at a street food vendor stall. Bought chicken and rice from the famous Halal guys and walked to the car. The car was parked in same garage all day and we took subways/PATH/cab to go around the city.

Drove around times square to see the ball that drops on New year’s eve and some other busy streets and then headed towards home.

This is probably the first time we drove to NY and it was a fun experience. We always prefer public transport as NY always has more traffic and parking is expensive too.

Came back home around 11pm and went straight to bed!

Sunday was catching up on all chores day with all of us at home but in our own world to get ready for next week!
