Before I take you to Arizona, I thought I would play a little game I love to play with Hubby whenever we go away.
Usually I hit him with “best….” and he defers with “I don’t know, I liked it all”
and then I hit him with a pillow.
So instead of nagging him, I thought I might wrack my brain and give you my opinion on a few different things.
Feel free to throw in a few questions of your own.
Best breakfast – A fresh wholegrain onion bagel with cream cheese. Love love love.
Worst breakfast – Eggs Benedict where the hollandaise was the exact colour of a New York Taxi.
Favorite Art Museum – The Metropolitan. Less busy and more variety than the MoMA. Both have sensational art, but I think I could have spent all day at the Met.
Best sightseeing experience – The Ride. A bus fully kitted out with hosts ready to entertain as they drive you around the Time Square area.
Best free experience – toss up between the Staten Island Ferry and the 911 memorial pools. I would recommend both.
Best indulgence – “Kinky Boots” on Broadway. Seats centre of the 2nd row, close enough to see the sweat on the performers. While the helicopter over the city was great, it was per minute, crazy expensive and just a little scary for this girl.
Best lunch – Shake Shack burgers and cheese fries. Yum
Worst lunch – The hot dog. Over priced and pretty bad. Oh and a chicken gyro. Nothing like the yiros we have here at home.
Best tourist discovery – The NYFD museum. Little museum off the tourist trail based in an old fire house filled to the brim with memorabilia with proceeds supporting the fire department.
Best walk – The Highline. Busy but very cool with lots of art and lovely plants
Least liked place to walk – Times Square. Noisy, pushy, crowded and confusing.
Best shopping – Macy’s. It’s where I got my wonderful new bag and coat.
Favorite dinner – Very possibly Thai. We would wander the local streets and found this little place. Did an awesome curry. Although I had some pretty great Italian one night too.
Best cocktail – chocolate raspberry martini. yum
Worst moment – not knowing if hubby had made it onto the train as we left the station at Time Square.
Best art moment – all of them, seeing the masters, and discovering art by artists I had never heard of.
Best dessert – waffles, with apple and caramel sauce and icecream.
Yes, food is always a big part of the best and worst list.
