Want an upgrade? Just say H-O-N-E-Y-M-O-O-N!

Photos from the wedding are beginning to trickle pour in. We haven’t been able to get online… too busy with other “pressing” matters… ;-) And so we’re having a blast finally viewing them, as we wait for our flight to Europe at JFK (please don’t forget to tag us on Facebook!). Thanks, Ben for the photo above!

Want an upgrade? Just say H-O-N-E-Y-M-O-O-N! Tracie P and me woke up to this view of Central Park this morning at Essex House. New York is winter gray but the whole world seems to appear in Technicolor right now. :-)


Nougatine at Jean Georges was just a hop, skip, and a jump away from our hotel and NYC Restaurant Week made the deal even sweeter (the fixed price lunch menu at Jean Georges is ALWAYS the best lunch deal in town, as my friend Scott Luetgenau well knows).

cheese burger

I couldn’t resist the Jean Georges cheese burger (!) topped with Russian dressing (the French fries sopped in Heinz!). Paired beautifully with Les Avaux 1er cru 2005 by Jadot (dig that wine!) by the glass.

creme caramel

Tracie P knows that one of my few dessert weaknesses is crème caramel… Soooooo goood… it’s got to have that consistency matched with delicacy to make it from A to A+…

We’re finally catching up online at Terminal 7 heading to Terminal 5 and then Fiumicino! OUR FIRST TRIP TO ITALY! WE ARE SO GEEKED.

Did someone say “upgrade”?
