girls weekend itinerary in new york city

24 Jul

just got back sunday from a to-die-for girls weekend in new york city.  amazing how simple it was to coordinate being that i’m in dallas, susan and sarah are in chatham, nj and sara beth is in atlanta.  so if you’re thinking of heading there, check out our itinerary for 2015.  short, but certainly sweet!

Friday night:

Dinner @ Schillers Liquor Bar @8pm

great little casual place in the lower east side.  great energy, food + drinks.  plus the wait staff has great ink!  perfect place for us to squeal and laugh and catch up with each other.  also, you’re in “real” nyc – not too touristy.

Saturday

walk the high line

if i lived here, i’d do this every weekend.  the art was fantastic!  the flowers and trees – beautiful.  this park located UP on an old elevated train line is not to be missed.  it was a beautiful day to walk through here, stop for some coffee and snap some pictures.

Brunch reservation @ 12:30 at Greenwich Project 

we then walked a block to this quaint, adorable restaurant sara picked out.  the part about walking a block was an inside joke because everything was “just a block away” – according to the native NYers – SBP and SP.  this was really a 47 block walk (ask susan) but well worth it.

we caught the service here on an off day.  but we still had a couple of brunch bloodies and sangria and awesome food.  the best part?  they comped our entire meal because of the service.  scheeesh!  that kind of made our whole day!

Reservation at Bite Lip Lab to make own lipstick @ 2:30

this place was bad ass!  i have to say the two lipsticks i made are the best i’ve ever had – better than MAC!  seriously!  they smell awesome – mint/vanilla – and are super soft!  this place is the size of a postage stamp but i want one in dallas.  it was a lot of fun to watch them mix the colors, then sample then mix some more!

SoHo Shopping

you can’t go to NYC without shopping in SOHO.  i snagged an unbelievable snag – a chloe marcie hobo bag at a consignment shop.  it took me exactly 2 minutes to decide.  i know that’s a shocker.

Mary’s Fish Camp in the West Village @ 8pm

loved this place!  small, crowded, don’t accept reservations,  no air conditioning but completely non-touristy and the most delicious lobster roll ever.  mary popped around the restaurant bringing wine and delivering food.  what a find!

Sunday

central park!

our last day – my flight was at 4:50.  woke up late, ate at hotel and grabbed some last minute clothes at the j crew sale then took off through central park.  we stayed at the essex house – a jw marriott hotel located right on the south side of the park.  it was hot but a beautiful, sunny day.  central park is so much fun to people watch!

Sarabeth’s for brunch

this place was awesome but we waited an hour and half for a table which actually wasn’t so bad because it was great people watching and the tuna salad was worth it!
