I’m so sad that the holiday break is coming to an end. Happy New Year’s Eve! I’m looking forward to a raclette party tonight.
I met up with C to give her shoes I got at the October YSL sample sale. I found these on a random table and figured one of my Asian girlfriends wore 5.5. Lucky C =P They were marked down to $50! Insanity. These usually run close to $500!
We lunched at Café Gitane. I had a citrus salad with avocado, organic chicken, and hearts of palm as well as freshly squeezed OJ. I loooove freshly squeezed OJ.
Then we battled the hordes of tourists as we crossed Broadway and got dessert at the Austrian cafe, Café Kristall. I do wonder how they stay in business. If you’re ever looking for an affordable oasis in Soho, check the back of the Swarovski shop. I got the Esterhazy (almond biscuit, vanilla cream, almond macaroons) and C got the cheesecake. Check out the layers of white chocolate at the bottom! Service is weird. They didn’t bother to inform us that their happy hour special is 2-for-1 cocktails.
