Being a grad student is pretty much synonymous with being really broke. I hadn’t refreshed my closet in TWO years! I know, #firstworldproblems. So when I finally got to don a new outfit from head to toe, courtesy of my sister, I had to take my first #ootd selfie.
It was the perfect look to kicked off my first weekend back in NYC. I spent the day wandering around The Metropolitan Museum of Art. After numerous visits, it’s become a familiar place to get lost in – like a second home. I went with no purpose; no exhibition in mind.
After working up an appetite roaming around The Met, I appeased the belly monster at The Red Lion.
- Pro: They play live music seven nights a week.
- Con: The Red Lion Burger was mediocre and there’s a $10 cover just to get in.
I laughed off some calories at the Comedy Cellar in Washington Square Park. The club has hosted a number of talents, including Dave Chapelle, Dane Cook, Wanda Sykes, Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock. Comedy shows are so much fun that it feels like it’s always too short.
