Hummus and the City - A Trip Report

This should be served as my live Trip Report which I was asked to do when I was looking for a hotel last week. The adventure starts tomorrow morning after I ship the kids and my parents to Aruba. In true trip report fashion there will be some jetlag involved on the first day as I will be up since 4 am. I can use a good flat white recco in union square or east village

I should also note that Hummus is NOT part of the plan, but a symbolic reference to one of New Yorks greatest attractions that's a big part of the plan, ethnic food

We await! I may even wake up earlier just to await "live" reports. That's nice, kids get a vacation too. I thought you locked them at home to watch the guppies.

I like the "live reports" idea.

Haha, can't wait for this TR, ziggy! Maybe we'll cross paths here in Flatiron over the weekend...I'm currently chaperoning a visiting 12-year-old cousin who cannot leave our apartment without me...yay. :)

Fran, how will you explain to your cousin that museum on 5th and 27th. I can use some pointers as I sometimes find myself in the area with the kids. And ye it would be cool if we cross paths.

The weekend eating commenced today with the infamous Don Antonio pizza Fritta, a giant fried calzone stuffed with mozzarella, sliced tomatoes and salami. Shared it with the guys and really enjoyed it. They have other calzones which are not fried I believe, but I would order this again. They have lunch specials now, smaller pies available at smaller prices. The smaller pies carry more smokiness

Sounds like he might be going to the grown up museum as well?

I know nothing about the grown museum!

And its freaky temporary bouncy exhibit!

And it would be especially awkward if while bouncing between those things, I meet Frangipani!
