Finally! After over three years of living in NY, a friend from Minnesota
has finally made the journey out here to spend the weekend.
3 years...they could have had a free place to stay and the inside scoop on NYC
from someone who knew the ropes and had been here for a while.
I think if my friend lived here I would have made it out by now....right?
Better late than never though...and Im so grateful to have him here.
Aaron is really getting into living foods, and was really excited to try
some of the wonderful raw offerings of NYC and see the all the sights.
He arrived yesterday and we have 3 more full days here,
so there is still so much to do. (MOMA, COSM Gallery, Chinatown..etc)
We hit up Westerly's yesterday on 54th and 8th for some sandwiches from the deli,
which we then enjoyed in the sun nearby at Central Park.
Did a little walk through of the Museum of Natural History after lunch,
and then headed over to Chocolate Girl's apt to pick up some supplies.
Her apartment smells like a magical chocolate factory.
She has the luckiest neighbors EVER.
Philip was hanging out too...and we made this video outside.
Philip is really charging 100% with the juice feast.
You have to have a good amount of discipline
and control over self to stay on a long as he has...and Im really happy for him.
After that, Aaron and I chilled at my place a bit with a little superfood pudding,
and then made it over to Jubb's Longevity Cafe for a lecture.
David was really on point tonight and the food was amazing.
Jubb's cafe is really on a whole different level when it comes to food quality.
All I suggest is that you might want to call in ahead of time and place
your order because the wait can be a bit much sometimes...just a tip.
I usually go with an Irish Moss smoothie or a dessert.
The desserts are SO complex, and with the ingredients they use, its surprising that
they actually dont cost more. One of the best values there if thats what youre going for.
We finished up the day with a walk through the East Village...
a bit cold but he's from Minnesota so there were no complaints.
We are going to Pure tonight...I'm sure he'll love it.
My roommate and his fiance tried Pure on Monday and they are still
telling people how amazed they were. That doesn't occur too much, even in NY.
We are going to be at Bonobo's tomorrow around noon....so if anyone is
nearby, Im just putting it out there....stop by and say hello if you can. We will
find a big table and all get caught up. NOON to ONE...Bonobo's...BE THERE.
When we have visitors, we tend to see our home city differently...through their eyes.
Things seem more exciting...fresher...unexpected, and random.
I am sure we all need a little more of that in our everyday routines.
There is so much out there that we simply become accustomed to because
we happen to be around it every day, but in fact the magic and energy is always there.
You just have to be in the right mind-frame to notice it.
Crater Lake, Oregon...that island was the tip of a collapse volcano. COOL.
I REALLY miss Oregon...
