NYC Day Four

Tuesday, January 3, 2012
Day four: Saturday.

We got up at a much more reasonable hour and grabbed a NYC bagel at Ess-a-Bagel. Then we hopped the subway to the upper east side to spend the day at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The museum was great...but overwhelming. We didn't come close to seeing everything. One of my favorite parts was this awesome christmas tree. I kind of got yelled at for taking this picture...oops...i didn't see the sign ahead of time.

For lunch we grabbed some food to-go from Dean and Deluca, this trendy, specialty grocery store and deli and ate it in Central Park. It was absolutely beautiful day in the city. I think everyone in the city was outside running, biking and enjoying the sunshine.

Saturday after thanksgiving means one thing: the iron bowl. We were sporting our orange and blue proudly all day. New York City has everything...including a bar and grill devoted to Auburn football: Hudson Station. It was like a little auburn haven in the big city. All the waiters were decked out in orange and blue and all the items on the menu were named for our alma mater.

We all know how the game went...doesn't need to be brought up here. We left a little before half time and paid a visit to the Empire State Building. It was dark by this point and the city was beautiful from way up there.

For dinner we went to S'Mac, which stands for Sarita's Mac and Cheese. This is a place we first learned about on a Food Network show devoted to the best eats in NYC. All they serve is macaroni and cheese...but in about a dozen varieties.

We split the sampler, a divided skillet filled with 8 different kinds of mac and cheese. They were each unique...and almost all of them were really yummy.
