the front door to the house doesn’t look like much, i expected something a little grander. perhaps some stairs leading up to the door. but in the end, this made loading in a whole lot easier.
the line. it should really be called the tunnel-as short and thin as i am, i felt a little large in this space.
red velvet cheesecake brownies. as a parting gift for all of the guests, i baked up 4 pans (see them lined up on the pass in the photo above?). need the recipe? click here.
we were unbelievably lucky; our event was on 2/14 and there were not any events scheduled on the day before. we were allowed to load in and prep the day before. that meant we were not as rushed and had a little time to wander the area. when we finished prepping on 2/13, a few of us hit the streets and headed to chelsea market on foot.
it always amazes me that the roads are still cobbled in some of the neighborhoods of manhattan.
the uneven sizes and angles of the glass on this building made wonderful reflections. i could have spent hours photographing the building and the reflections. we headed back to the house so that we could go to dinner as a group.
after a lovely dinner at mc cormick and schmicks, we walked to times square. having grown up in new jersey and spending many, many days and nights as well as working in new york city, i must say that times square at night is always impressive. a little overwhelming but always an adventure.
