parks & baseball

4 Apr

Saturday morning started with a run, so of course I needed to fuel up with some of my favorite carbs of NYC.

the best garlic knots

my new found love - the grandma slice

After carb overdosing, Danny and I headed out to explore the parks of Williamsburg. First up – the pier.

hi home

We found this warning odd. So pretty much, NYC doesn’t care if you poison yourself with their fish if you’re a male? 😛

How bout no one eats out of this river, mmk?

After the pier we headed to another park’s play ground to playyyyyy.

Kids are hardcore these days, these were scary. I wanted ice cream from the KOOL MAN truck, but sadly we had no doll hairs. Next time, kool man, next time.

Afterwards, we walked to yet another park and watched all the softball games and dogs. (hooray for extra cardio!!!) I was incredibly envious of both. I wish I had a softball team, but I’d much rather take a puppy instead… 😉 On our walk back, we came across the dressing room of a tv show.

look closely 😉 hehe

As I said, with April starting comes baseball season; so a good chunk of the rest of the weekend was spent watching some of the opening weekend games at a Philly bar here in New York. Lots of cheese steaks, wings, and cheering for Lee. Lucky for me they even have a few good veggie options.

I also obsessed over their waffle fries dipped in hot sauce. I shared, I promise. 🙂

Yesterday, I was so excited to head to the NYC Vegetarian Festival, but got there to see 3-4 hour long line that they were going to cut off.

Therefore, my extent of the festival:

😦 very exciting, I know. Head on over here to Une Vie Saine for a real recap of the festival. Next time, I’ll buy the VIP pass. I’ve officially learned my lesson.

    Bummer you missed out on the Vegetarian Festival! I don’t think we have one of those out here in LA, but it sounds amazing! Hope you get some VIP tickets next year. 🙂

    At least you got to enjoy some amazing-looking garlic knots!

      I bet they would one day! I was surprised, too. I should pre-order them now 🙂

    A vegetarian festival sounds so fun. Long lines do not. I’m glad to see other people getting into the baseball spirit 🙂

      “Variations abound, but the basic outlines are as follows: a thin layer of dough is stretched into an oiled, square “Sicilian” pan, topped sparingly with shredded mozzarella, crushed uncooked canned tomatoes, chopped garlic and olive oil, and baked until the top bubbles and the bottom is crisp.” Got that from Newsday so I would be accurate. 🙂

    uuuum, I want those garlic knots. SO bad. I have yet to find any in VA beach worth drooling over.

    The line was nuts! But once I made it inside, it was so worth it 🙂
