big city blues

Vintage street finds, local boutiques, unparalleled people watching … I am obsessed with New York City. After our photo shoot in the Meatpacking District, we stopped off at Chelsea Market, had a Good brunch with my uncle and visited our newly married friends in the West Village. We ladies then sent our men to the bar to watch football and shopped the day away on the streets of Nolita and SoHo. We shared wedding tips, perused the vintage jewelry collections at a few street vendors and agreed we’re both currently loving blues. Funny enough, my photos are proof. As I scrolled through them on the train home I noticed they were everywhere! Before meeting up with the guys and heading home, Nicole and I stopped for an afternoon snack at Tacombi, where they serve tacos out of an old Volkswagen bus parked in what appears to have once been a garage. Apparently the joint is “driven” by Food Network Chef Aaron Sanchez. It was perfectly spicy and absolutely delicious, just like our visit!

flat, crispy tortilla) — YUM!

    I love Chelsea Market. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen Eleni’s cupcakes too. I miss New York now. Used to be my second home, lol.

    Sounds like you had a great weekend. But I bet your uncle picked up the tab for brunch and alas, he gets NO credit and NO picture…
