My planned Holiday weekend in NYC

sixteenbiticon | | Dec 15, 2011 08:02 AM

Here's what my wife and I have planned for the next two days visiting NYC.

Our bus arrives early Friday morning. Our first stop is City Bakery for hot chocolate, pretzel croissants, and cookies.

After some shopping we have a noon reservation for a prix fixe lunch at Del Posto. I'm pretty excited about it, but nothing on their current menu is really jumping off the page at me.

After lunch we're going to check in to our hotel and do some touristy stuff for once. We're going to check out the 5th Ave window displays and the tree at Rockefeller.

I expect it to be around 4-5pm when we finish shopping so we're going to head over to the West Village for a few drinks at Blind Tiger. We have a 7:30 dinner reservation at 84 on Seventh. If we're still hungry I wouldn't mind hitting L'arte del Gelato right across the street.

Saturday morning we're going to Shopsin's for breakfast. After that I don't really have too much planned. We might check out the Guggenheim or do some more shopping.

Lunch will be pizza at Motorino. I'm anxious to try their egg pizza, hopefully they'll top it with Brussels sprouts for me.

We have an early dinner reservation at Public because we have tickets to go see the 8pm showing of Stomp. I play the drums and I've wanted to see Stomp for years, so I'm pretty excited about that. After the show we head straight to our bus back down to Baltimore.

We might try to squeeze a few other snacks in along the way. I want to check out Dominique Ansel Bakery and my wife loves Coffee Roasting Plant, but we'll probably have to sacrifice one of our meals to fit any more in...

Thanks for reading, have a great weekend.
