where's Nina?

Wow- I haven't posted in a week! Where have I been? Last week I went to dinner at the new Five Napkin Burger in Astoria. I had the original burger and the tuna burger. So yummy! Then I went to see The Other Guys starring Will Farrell and Mark Walberg, two of my faves. I had the clutch my stomach in laughter throughout the entire movie. On Friday I went on the best bike ride of the summer. I rode to Long Island City to Gantry Park. I had first read about this park from Kate's blog and had to see it for myself. I rode during sunset, walked along the pier, and laid on a hammock under a crescent moon with a view of the Manhattan skyline. It. Was. Perfect. I stopped by LIC Bar for a glass of wine after, sitting in the outdoor courtyard under a willow tree, I felt like I was in Savannah. I went to a random house party on Saturday night and then brunch at Sparrow Sunday afternoon. Early evening Sunday I took the train to Hoboken to meet Romy and hitch a ride back to the shore with her. We met up with some friends for dinner at Stella Marina in Asbury Park and drinks overlooking the ocean at the Watermark. We finished off the night with beers at The Cottage. Romy and I were so hungover the following morning that we had lunch at Ocean Cafe and then lounged on the couch watching Valentine's Day. We figured, how bad can a rom com with an all star cast be? Very. Very. Very. Bad. I do not recommend watching this ever.

I got back into Astoria early evening yesterday and went to Afghan Kebab House for dinner (in honor of my brother). It was my first time having Afghani food and it was delicious! Lamb kebabs are my new fave. That brings me to today where I'm meeting my friend Tanya for martinis at Les Halles.

Phewf! So that's where I've been the past week and weekend. I've got a friend from London visiting for the next five days so I'm sure it'll be another week before the next post!

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!
