Double Bridge Weekend
February 28, 2011
This weekend's theme was restoration. Friday night @cocktailspirit and I went to a yoga class, which was exactly what I needed after my busy week. After a quick dinner, I spent some quality time on my couch catching up on my DVR. Saturday I slept later than I thought was humanly possible, then met Bill for dim sum at Red Egg. Afterwards, we wandered around Chinatown and the Lower East Side, then decided to continue over the Williamsburg bridge. Once we got to the other side, we rewarded ourselves with a tipple or two at Dram. On a side note, Dram's new food menu looks great. Have to return at some point when I'm hungry.
Sunday began with laziness and the NYT, then I headed to Maharlika for brunch with @selenawrites and @libationdiaries to support our friends Enzo & Noel, who are involved in this great pop-up Filipino brunch spot. The gorgeousness you see above is the Eggs Benigno: lola mahal's home-style pandesal, thinly sliced housemade spam, calamansi hollandaise and kamote fries (more brunch photos here). Selena and I decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and walk off brunch by walking downtown and over the Brooklyn Bridge. Afterwards, I went home, did some writing, and watched the Oscars, which were only bearable thanks to Twitter and a Vieux Carré. Oy.
All in all, a lovely, relaxing weekend.
