Leigh Ann got to see my new neighborhood -- and I think she loves it almost as much as I do. She's in town for work, but we both wrapped up our days early to race to the Eugene O'Neill Theater on 49th Street at 4:30, where we entered the 5 o'clock lottery to get tickets for Book of Mormon.
Ticketless, we headed to her hotel room so I could collect the three pounds of nuts from Costco that my sweet sister kindly "imported" for me. Then we headed to the West Village so Leigh Ann could see my new home. I need to take a few more street snaps so you can appreciate it too, but I am still stunned that I ended up in such a picturesque part of the city.
We had cocktails at Smorgas-Chef, a restaurant on the corner that happened to be offering $6 lingonberry margaritas. Yes, please! We had some parsnip crisps with dill cream while we watched the passersby.
We practically licked the plate.
