Bar on the Go! (And an Over the Weekend Update)

How awesome is this bike bar? It would be perfect for summer picnics in the park. Just pack up the bike and ride out, no need to strap on a backpack. Ashley of the fantastic blog Hither and Thither  stumbled upon this, and I think it would be a great little DIY (once I actually own a bike, but details details)

As you probably noticed, my blogging as been a little lax the last week. My sister came to town on a whirlwind three day visit, so I focused my free time on hanging out with her. It was a lot of fun, we got to check out Catfish, which is a great little Cajun restaurant that just opened up in my neighborhood. I also finally got to try Choku, which is amazing ramen place in Prospect Heights. I tried the pork bun, and now I want to eat it everyday for the rest of my life. All and all Id say it was a good trip, capped off with a delicious group brunch at my apartment before she left. I’m hoping the trip has convinced her to move out east.

(posting will be a little light this week as well. My best friends are getting married, and I am officiating so Ive got some wedding business to attend to)



I am really bad about bringing my DSLR with me on a day to day basis. I also have this chronic fear that the one time I bring it with it will get smashed by some kid on the subway doing flips on the bars or something. Since my phone is always with me, I use it for most day to day photos. So here is a quick update of my life, complete with kelvin filter. You can find me on instagram @erini

(PS, if you live in NYC and have not yet been to Sweet Revenge, drop what you are doing and go right now. Seriously, it is amazing. But I guess its hard to screw up cupcakes and booze)

Around Town // Washington Square Park

My mom was in town this weekend, so we did a lot of walking around Manhattan. We ended up meeting a friend of hers in Washington Square park before grabbing a few drinks. The weather was a bit depressing, but there were a lot of people out and about. A man at a grand piano, boys playing with bubbles, a man creating a masterpiece out of chalk.

Baby it’s Cold Outside

Guys, I have got a serious case of the winter blues. I’m not sure about everyone else, but here in New York I feel like the sun has been behaving like a moody teenager hiding in its room for weeks now. Everyday when I think I will finally get to see the sun again New York says “gotcha”, and runs away giggling. Much like that blind date you went on, winter in NYC just will not end.

As I sip my tea and foster a deeper relationship with my sweatshirts, I have been dreaming up how I want to beat the blues.

Should just about do it. Do you have any tips on getting around the cold induced doldrums?

Over the Weekend


I hope everyone has successfully recovered from their St. Patrick’s Day induced hangover. A brief recap of my lovely weekend.

1} A walk along the Highline.

2} A stroll through the East Village on a chilly day.

3} Brunch with friends.

4} A cozy new sweater.

How was your weekend?
