Welcome to New York Nadine and Company and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

There is no relation between the title of this post and this picture. I just like to have a picture in my post every day, and this is today’s. It’s across the street from one of the movie theatres I go to and I call it the “I Quit, Give me a Burger and a Cupcake and Take Me Now Cafe.”

Nadine, a reader of this blog, is visiting NYC with a friend this week and I wanted to say hi! Apparently they brought the president with them, so thank you for the all-day gridlock, Nadine and friend!! (Kidding.) But it’s also their BIRTHDAYS.

Speaking of which, I prefer the cupcakes at the Cupcake Cafe on 18th between 5th and 6th, and a great place to eat lunch is on that block, City Bakery. So if you have time, you could go to those places one day, but you should definitely get birthday cupcakes at the Cupcake Cafe.

  1. burgers and cupcakes-is that the dream meal of a five year old…or what ?

    a little bit o’ trivia-the killjoys at the Blgd. Dept cited this establishment for both the giant cupcake and the extra long canopy. not sure what is wrong with the cupcake, but the canopy (alledgedly) would interfere with the operation of fire apparatus. Too close to the street !!!

    boo !!! hisss !!!


  2. Thanks Stacy! And ya, sorry about the GB thing. (I like to refer to him as G-B. As in, “He gives me the hee-bee-gee-bies…)
    We are having a great time, and the weather has been so lovely. We saw Wicked last night, Kelly is at a matinee today, and I spent the afternoon at MOMA. So amazing. Tomorrow is walk the Brooklyn Bridge, Financial District, Greenwich Village and Soho. (I know, we are nothing if not optimistic..!) so I am adding cupcakes to the list 🙂
    Thanks again for this welcoming post. You’re a celebrity to me, so this is a real thrill 🙂
