This week was a lovely week, a little hot, but overall had some pretty nice days.  On Monday I discovered Broadway Bites a pop-up market place in Greeley Square (near Herald Square) with tons of delicous places to get food. Most of the food joints are specialty foods, some are outfitters that are usually found as food trucks.  I stopped for an empanada on my way to a meeting, but I'll have to go back when I have more time for lunch one day. Here's the scene;


This past weekend Adam was a Groomsman and instead of a limo the wedding party drove around in a trolley! So cute.  Here's a cute pic of us on the trolley.  Also, was Adam's first time in a tux, he looks so nice!

I was at a meeting at a NYC Parks admin building in Central Park this week and this cool map of the park before it had all the stuff it has today was hanging on the wall so I took a picture.

Yesterday, I was walking from a meeting, down 42nd Street back to my office when on the corner of 6th Ave, Sabra  was handing out free samples of it's Salsa and little packs of Tostitos, my lucky day! A perfect afternoon snack before my softball game.  So I'm munching and walking another block when I come upon a line.  If you don't live in NY, you should know, usually when you see a line, something good is at the end of it sometimes it's a concert or waiting for a celeb after a show appearance, and more often its something free; food or giveaways.  I asked what was being given out, and found out the Red Hook Lobster Pound was giving out free lobster rolls in promotion of Bon Appetit's Grub Crawl, happening this Saturday (6/21) in NYC.  Who knew a walk down 42nd Street could provide so much free food!  Here's the truck giving out the food and the roll.

That's all for today, have a Shariously great weekend!  And don't forget to share you pictures with me on instagram @shariously.

Happy Friday!

A short post for you all this Friday: 

I took this picture a few weeks ago at a luncheon from the ballroom of the Mandarin Oriental at Columbus Circle.  I posted it on instagram and Facebook and it got tons of likes so I figured I'd share.  Since One57 (the building shown in the picture), is one of my company's projects, my marketing team liked the picture so much, they might even feature it in some marketing materials.

The week days have been dismal, but the weekends have been great!  Here is a picture of downtown and midtown on beautiful spring days.

Last weekend we watched a friend's dog for a few hours.  He's an adorable 6 month old goldendoodle.  Note the cord next to him, which he subsequently chewed through when he mixed it up with his chew toy.  The cord is the power cord for my surface.  Luckily, Microsoft has some great customer service, replaced the cord in 3 days and here I am typing to you from a fully powered Surface.  

Lastly, here is a view of a rainy Manhattan from at 19th floor in sunny Downtown Brooklyn.  That's a summer's evening for you.

Have a Shariously wonderful weekend!
