We both woke up a little sluggishly this morning, after our visit to the Blue Note Jazz Club last night. The venue itself was nice and intimate, but they have a few shows a night and you really felt like part of a conveyor belt system of customers being churned in and out of the club. Luckily, when the music started, all was forgotten. The entertainment for the night was Gary Burton & Makoto Ozone Duets and that, combined with a long day’s walking and a few cocktails made getting up today very difficult!
Once we finally got going we headed into Brooklyn for the obligatory bridge visit.
It’s the best you are going to get…
We stopped off at Luke’s Lobster and shared one crab and one lobster roll between us. The lobster was by far the best, but both were very good and I’d definitely recommend popping in if you ever get the chance. No mayo added… just the real deal.
After a lot more walking, we found ourselves at Century 21, but feeling pretty tired out neither of us were really in the mood to shop. So we walked some more, to prepare ourselves for yet more food! I’d booked us tickets to The Big Cheesy – ‘a two-day pop-up, to determine the best grilled cheese in the city’. Oh. My!
We paid around £17 for a ticket, turned up, got given a plate, napkin, two beer tickets and a ping pong ball. We had a one hour slot to eat as many of the seven artisan grilled cheese sandwiches as we liked, voting for our favourite by placing the ping pong ball at a table of our choice. We were pretty stuffed quite quickly and didn’t actually manage to sample from every table. Two included mushrooms in their melts anyway, so we happily skipped those because neither of us are fans. As I’m not really meant to eat bread, I was a little worried about eating too much in one day, but it was a delicious treat and some days you just have to have a little (lot) of what you fancy.
It’s nearly 9pm now and we’re off to the cinema. We’ll probably collapse in a heap and fall into a deep, deep sleep later on. That was our news from day three in New York… Until the fourth x
