|We met new friends for a twEAT-up at Queens Kickshaw|
@Stellaaa, @Roxwriting,@Action_jojo and @mojoshowbiz
|This was how my profile looked on @mojoshowbiz'|
twitter app before we became twitter friends.
|Kathryn, another friend had dropped by at The Queens Kickshaw|
and introduced his friend Aaron to us.
|Roxwriting and I met at the corner of|
65th Street and 34th Ave (point A).
Then we walked, (the blue line) and ate at Queens Kickshaw (point B)
then took the bus (fuschia line)
to get to the Noguchi Museum (point C).
|With a free family pass from our friend Rich,|
we went to the Noguchi Museum
|We didnt touch them, promise...|
|But we needed to pose photos for personal documentation|
|and I just had to impersonate a Leonardo da Vinci drawing|
|It was hot out, so we went to Costco for a Frozen Smoothie for $1.50|
|From Point C, Walked on the Roosevelt Island Bridge|
to get to Roosevelt Island.
The Spot where the pink heart is where Dave and I got married.
|And did more hiking|
but not in those shoes shown in the logo.
|From Long Island City, we followed Noguchi's footsteps and|
walked the Roosevelt Island Bridge to get to Roosevelt Island...
|We walked down this path|
|Watched this view while walking the bridge|
and walked until we got to our next form of transportation...
|We walked some more to get to|
the start of the Pink line to get on the...

The Roosevelt Island Lighthouse Tram!!!
|The view from the tram looks like this...|
|How it looks inside and what people do in it.|
|We ended up at Sprinkles Cupcakes (point B on this map)|
after walking from the Tram's end.
The pink line represents the tram ride.
|After getting off at Manhattan,|
we went inside just like this lady did
|Got up to this counter and ordered|
|A Salted Caramel Cupcake!|
Roxwriting and I Shared. Dessert First is how we roll.
|From Sprinkles (point A on this map) we took the subway|
to Nom Wah Tea Parlor (point B).
The Green line represents the streets that passed by earlier.
That was a LOT of travelling!
|Then we went to Chinatown for Dinner.|
Dimsum Dinner at Nom Wah Tea Parlor
Thank you for taking the trip with us! This what we call a two-fer. It really is short for a Two-for-One outing, that usually becomes a three-fer. We take the time to enjoy museums, special exhibitions and other events if it is free or we get free passes. Once we set ourselves on an event, we just draw up a restaurant from our restaurant wish list.
Usually it is on the free or cheap side because we would rather spend our money on food and our rent. I think the total amount we spend for this day was about $35 each. That's LUNCH, DINNER and SNACKS (we snacked twice).
The Noguchi Museum Admission is $10 for adults, but we got a free pass from our friend Rich. YAY! Thanks Rich!
We live in NYC but we don't have the Sex and the City lifestyle. Yes, they brunch every weekend, but it is only Miranda that really eats in that show. Let us just say that we are both Miranda. Oh, and some weekends, we are just too lazy to get out of bed.
