E-squared on the subway
This summer, Emily served as my maid of honor, a job she's had to fill for several friends, and she struck up a friendship with Sean, one of John's groomsmen. He's a college buddy of John's, and it was fun getting to know him over the long weekend.
The four of us ate our way through the city, since that's how John and I like to show off New York. But it was more interesting this time because Emily is the pickiest eater I've ever known, and Sean is a human vacuum. She won't eat anything green, leafy or mushy, and Sean likes to eat pre-hors'devours and double desserts with every meal.
We made the most of their four days, though, eating pizza, pasta, olives, hot dogs, cannelloni at Emilia's in the Bronx, fresh bread, ice cream, sorbet, cupcakes, Katz's pastrami sandwiches, oysters, carpaccio, brunch at Craft, and anything else we could fit into our mouths. We washed it all down with copious amounts of red wine, limoncello and a little sambuca.
If we hadn't walked all over creation while they were here, I'm pretty sure that Weight Watchers would have revoked my membership for good. What a lovely weekend! (There are pictures at Flickr, if you wanna see.)
