We're a day away from March, February 2011 is on it's way out.  My parents are leaving today as well.  (I'll be seeing them again in just a handful of weeks.  But, more on that some other day.)  We had a jam-packed last 5 days.  I'm in need of a vacation from my stay-cation.  Note to all you out there- craving a restful, relaxing vay-cay?  Do not visit the Big Apple.

It was tons of fun though.  Recap in a nut shell...

Day 1- exploration of, and lunch at the Chelsea Market, stroll along Highline Park, Chelsea neighborhood walk, the Intrepid (Growling and Concord), Ground Zero, quick dinner at the Wholefoods hot-bar, tour of my design room.

Day 2- the Cloisters, Fort Tryon Park, the Met, Upper East Side neighborhood walk, dinner at Curly's (yum!) with the BF.

Day 3- bus tour of UWS, Harlem and UES, the Museum of Natural History, lunch at Peace Foods (yum again), MOMA, St. Patrick's Cathedral, dinner at Broolyn Mac (yum o-rama ) and tour of the BF's pad complete with home-baked gluten free-carob-pecan-coconut-oat cookies (yum, like whoa!!!).

Day 4- shopping at the Union Sq green market, hot chocolate and treats at The City Bakery, Financial District neighborhood walk (Stone St. is sooo darn cute!), Staten Island Ferry ride (and back), dinner with the BF and his parent's at Wild Ginger in BK.

Day 5- Williamsburg neighborhood walk including the waterfront and pier at The Edge, coffee and treats as the Verb, factory tour at Mast Brothers' Chocolate, walk around McCarren Park (including a stop at the dog park, of course), tour of the Brooklyn Brewery,  dinner at Papacito's in Greenpoint (yum, super super nachos).

Okay... that was most definitely the largest nut shell ever.  But, I swear it was as concise as possible!  How was you're weekend?  Did you do any adventuring?
