Frantic Friday

What a day, what a day, what a day

I woke up this morning and had to run to the office to get out a document before 9.  Next up physical therapy at 9:30.  I found a little bagel shop on 24th and 6th and ordered 2 eggs on a bagel to go less than $3 pretty sweet. Over to brooklyn for a hair appointment.

Then I met up with Ms. G.  We ended up having lunch in the cafetaria area downstairs in Rockefeller Plaza.  I'm embarassed to say I was craving chinese food and ended up getting general-tso chicken and lo mein from Manchu Wok.

I know, nay the classiest, but it hit the spot and sometimes that's what you gotta go for.  Ms. G ordered 1/2 chicken with mashed.  Look how large that chicken is! Needless to say, she didn't finish it.

For dinner, we went to Eatery.  It was quite an intersting dining experience.  Ms. G and I had the displeasure of listening/watching the people sitting next to us as they did a mating dance.  yuck.  The food was surprisingly spectacular.  I wasn't that hungry when we arrived so I had a hard time ordering.  I ultimately settled on the Wok-Flashed Tequila Shrimp with Poblano-Corn Flautas and Sweet Potato Mash.

I wasn't expecting it to taste that good, but it was amazing.  The shrimp were perfectly cooked and left me feeling quite happy.  The sweet potato mash was even better.  I've never had a flauta before.  It looked like a monster sized egg roll, but was filled with cheese and corn.  I could only eat one because it was quite overwhelming.

And now time to pack.  San Fran in the morning!  I'll provide updates as often as possible, but it's going to be hard to find time to write.  Apologies in advance.
