It’s been a full 10 days since I’ve updated! Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve updated, but I’ve been super busy with life. The 5K with Leo was amazing – we saw Mandy Moore, Jesse White (the detective from Law and Order), Trey from Sex and the City (sorry, I didn’t bother looking up his real name), Meredith Viera from the Today Show on NBC, and Chaka Khan! We had to walk the first part since the start time for the walkers/runners wasn’t staggered, but we ran most of the time. I’m getting ready for my 10K this weekend (I didn’t really run after the 5K as a reward to myself and then I realized I had a 10K coming up this weekend!!).
On Friday night, Chris and I headed to Pop Burger for some burgers and fries. Pop Burger serves miniature burgers in a little cardboard box (it reminded me of White Castle initially) and one order comes with two little bite-sized burgers. The decor of the place is really trendy and cute (and in the back, there’s even a bar where you can also order food):
The burgers come with American cheese and “pop sauce,” which, in my opinion, didn’t add too much to the burger. There was some spice in the burger to make it extra tasty, but the bun was a little too tough for me. I’d still say that Shake Shack is the best of all the burger places we’ve visited in the city. Afterwards, we headed to Pinkberry for shaved ice (it was the perfect night for the treat) and definitely got our money’s worth with the amount of frozen yogurt they put on the shaved ice . It was probably the first time in all my visits to Pinkberry that I left without feeling like I paid too much to eat yogurt mixed with ice. I’m really tempted to buy an ice cream maker (partially for my birthday since it’s coming up), but that might be the most eccentric collection of kitchen appliances – a rice cooker, a pot, two cups, and an ice cream machine. I’m tempted though…I’ll let you know how it plays out.
