New York Weekend 2/12-2/15/10

I was in New York for the long weekend and it was great to be able to spend more than a day and a half in the city for a change. Over the course of the weekend I celebrated Valentine's Day, got drinks with friends, ate massive amounts of chocolate, managed to get my coat taken from a bar (but it's being returned! faith in people=restored), did lots of shopping at Macy's and Beacon's Closet to try and find a decent replacement for missing coat (unsuccessfully), took a tour of "Love and Lust in Antiquity" at the Met, watched some Olympics, and just generally enjoyed spending quality time with the bf. Pictorial highlights below!

The prettiest, most delicious box of chocolates I've ever had--purchased from Chocolate Bar.

A bubbling skillet of Alpine mac n cheese (BACON!) at S'mac.

After the tour at the Met, we checked out the Modern Art section--this was my favorite Picasso.

There was also a hilarious and adorable exhibit on Victorian photo collage, where people used to cut out photos of their loved ones and paste them into funny scenes--a precursor to PhotoShop. I was definitely inspired to try my hand at this sometime in the future.

On Valentine's Day, Joe and I got dressed up and went to dinner and a movie. BAM was playing "It Happened One Night," with Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert, which was one of the most fun movies I've seen in a long time. I highly recommend checking this one out if you've never seen it.

There's nothing like being met at your bus by a handsome man holding a bouquet of flowers.

Hope you all had a lovely long weekend as well!
