Rather, I left bright and early a few Friday mornings ago and hopped on a plane to get the Big Apple for a 30th birthday weekend with my mom.

|Peace out Memphis.|
We stayed at The Algonquin and it was the perfect little hotel right down the street from Times Square, close to Central Park, and around the corner from 5th Avenue. There was a cute bar attached to the hotel (and yes we frequented often) called The Blue Bar. Eat the lobster rolls, the grilled cheese with tomato soup, and drink the Coney Island Brewery beers - specifically the mermaid pilsner.
The weekend was spent bouncing around the city. Quite literally. I think we simultaneously saw everything while seeing nothing.

|Wicked! So. So. So. Good. I may have cried afterwards. All the feels.|
|Not only is the ice cream fantastic, the posters are hilarious.|
|"What's around you?" "I'm looking at Ray's pizza. You know where that is?" "Is it Famous Ray's?" "No, it's just original." "Famous ORIGINAL Ray's?" "It's just original, Jerry!"|
|Until next time.|
