The Weekender : No. 241

Sandra Semburg on @Savvy Home

It rained all week in NYC, and the weekend was no exception. I had a really long week, so I was more than happy to spend a large amount of time at home to recharge this weekend. I was on a mission: clean out my inboxes (check!), and get ahead at work so I can actually leave the office at a reasonable hour this week, just in time for the sun to return (check)! It was nice to allow myself to rest, recharge, and get ahead. I rewarded myself with evenings out with friends.

On the calendar this weekend, we tried: Ramona—a stunning cocktail bar in Brooklyn I reviewed last summer. We also hit The Lucky Bee—I’ve been wanting to go forever after hearing of their kitsch décor, and coconut water cocktails, and it didn’t disappoint—it was the highlight of the weekend! The food was delish. We went to a few favorites—Attaboy (I’ll say it again: best cocktails in NYC), and The Ludlow (because their sofas are just too comfortable). I went back to La Pecora Bianca for brunch because the décor is simply too cute, and it’s conveniently close to me. Last night, I tried Freud, a new spot in the Greenwich Village. Will I ever dine at home, or will I start storing sweaters in my oven à la Carrie Bradshaw? Stay tuned to find out.
