Welcome to part 2 of my trip to Nueva York! So, it's still the same day, but it's night time now. Lindsay and I had a brief photo shoot before and after the party. We're vain and we are not ashamed - jk!!! The original "event" that brought me to NY was a former co-worker/friend's birthday party, and since my bestie lives there now, I have NO EXCUSE to not go to NY.

Linds accompanied me to the bday dinner. We ate Spanish tapas at Macondo in The Village. We took the A to the F, and had very little outdoor walking to do. I love New York's subway system, it's amazing! I was able to wear my heels, throughout the night, and I didn't fall! Sorry that the shoes aren't pictured, but I've worn them a ton of times - they were in my 30 for 30. Overall, it was great to get out of the house, and re-connect with friends. I had a blast!

One comment I will make regarding party dinners as a fairly new pescatarian is this: It's hard to eat at dinner parties as a pescatarian when everyone is sharing plates. *Lindsay is also a pescatarian, AND she has a nut allergy, so it's even tougher for her.* She actually could eat about 3 of the 10 offered plates, while I ate 5 of the 10 offered plates. In the end, the bill is still split evenly, when you only ate half of the options. :( In the future, I think I will just order a separate dish in the beginning that I know I can and will eat, and be full. That is all.
