Been having a rough time in general. Getting stressed out over meaningless things. I've been trying my usual distractions....trying out some new eats while banking some miles.
I've been meaning to try this place out since it's right around the corner from me, and since I heard they make a bacon and egg sandwich on a cheesy biscuit. Still a sucker for breakfast sandwiches. Comes from growing up in Jersey I guess. The sandwich didn't disappoint. No miles from this place, but the sandwich won me over.
I'm glad I always have the option to quickly get into the city. I never need a specific destination. I just hop on the train, pick a stop to get off at, and wander. You can always find something.
Once I find a new doughnut shop, I become obsessed with trying out all the different ones. I've gone down the road of getting 2 or 3 at a time before. I won't do that again. The peanut butter and jelly from The Doughnut Project is worth trying.
Tried the Tacombi up on 24th. Big space with plenty of seating. Wasn't too crowded when I went. Tacos were very good, but a little on the expensive side for what you get. I'll have to try a few of the drinks they have there. I like the Bleeker street location better. Nicer area.
As soon as I realized I was near Madison Square Park, I had to run over and grab a dessert. Double chocolate ice cream sandwich from Melt Bakery. The ice cream is perfectly hard so that when you bite into it, it doesn't spread out and go everywhere.
Sunburst Espresso Bar is an all day coffee and breakfast place. Free Wifi, and offers a nice break spot from wandering around. You get 5 miles per dollar spent there, so the guilty iced coffee doesn't make you feel so bad.
Cooper's Craft and Kitchen has a bunch of awesome beers on tap. Haven't tried the food yet. 5 miles per dollar here as well.
Cork N' Fork is a small tapas bar on the east side. Great sangria at happy hour, and you get the miles for it.
Nice little taco spot that serves miles as well.
Back to thinking about a trip somewhere. Not looking forward to the 3 day weekend. No plans, and it's a little too hot for me to wander around taking pictures. The city will be too crowded for me. Maybe a ride upstate somewhere.
