but too bad i still had to go to work. however, it was a pretty entertaining morning as i slushed through thigh high snow, dipped through icy puddles that were deeper than they looked, and watched truck after car after truck try to get their cars out of the snow, in turn holding up traffic.
i also watched some ice float down the hudson by the intrepid… at first it was a bit, but after a few minutes i was expecting to see an iceberg or something lol.
last night wendy, lawn, vern and i ventured out through the snow, rain, sleet mix to enjoy a hearty dinner at the italian restaurant, carmine‘s. lawn’s in town for a few days for some meetings, wendy is back fresh from her trip to italy, and vern is also back from her mini vaca with lawn lol.
after work i met lawn at her hotel in midtown and we decided to watch some tv and guess what was on!!! TWILIGHT!!!
we left to meet up with wendy at bryant park and the sidewalks and roads were sooooo slippery and slushy!!! but bryant park was really beautiful…
the three of us then headed over to carmine’s to meet up with vern and get our grub on – we were STARVING, luckily we made reservations and they seated us right away – holler!
check out wendy’s rings =)
at carmine’s, you eat family style, similar to buca di beppo (also yummmmers). we ordered calamari, penne pasta with rigatoni sauce, and chicken parmesean. uhm… it was too much food, but very tasty and satisfying. the breaded seasoning was absolutely mouth watering – you didn’t really need any marinara to top the calamari nor the chicken because it was just that good on its own!
for dessert we ordered some italian ricotta cheesecake. it was sooooo thick. personally not my favorite, but it was dessert nonetheless! between the 4 of us, we didn’t even finish half of it!
i’ll be the first to admit that i love love love snow! but only from afar.
currently i don’t think our trains are running, but i have to get to work because i have a few meetings i’d like to attend.
our super started clearing out our sidewalk around 5:30 this morning… i think he finished around 6:30 – he’s awesome.
the car across the street has been trying to dig their way out since around the same time, its now 7:30 and they’re… uhm… almost there?
i’d like it to be spring already. i don’t know how long i can rock my puffy bum coat with my snow boots any longer. pretty soon my legs will be so muscular from all the heavy walking!
