The night before Halloween and already the city is getting crazy – costumes and marathoner mayhem! I started the day with some boring Kashi cereal and milk, but my lunch was much more exciting. One of my co-workers recently got engaged after dating her boyfriend for either 6 or 7 years! We had to celebrate.
We went to lunch at Stone Street Tavern on… duh Stone Street in lower Manhattan. Rather than getting my boring salad, I got a chicken fajita wrap and it was delicious. It was filled with grilled chicken, yellow rice, peppers, onions, black beans, and chimichurri sauce and lime aioli. I got a side salad along with it instead of fries. All in all a pretty decent meal.
After work I met up with two friends from elementary school who I haven’t seen in FOREVER!! We met in Hell’s Kitchen for dinner and drinks. The number of restaurants in the area always astounds me. We ended up landing at: Bourbon Street Grille
The picture does it no justice – it’s super cute. I decided to eat light tonight and had a entree salad with bits of blue cheese, pears, and pecans. It was a bit smaller than expected, but actually quite delicious.
It was so great to catch up with Alex and Jackie! And I heard some exciting news at dinner – my friend Jess just got engaged to her boyfriend Bob!!! Congratulations!! What a great Friday.
thanks for throwing us in there linds! we are so super-excited 🙂

Hey Jess! Agave nectar is a low-glycemic natural sweetner. Check this site out for more info: http://www.allaboutagave.com/index.php. You can add it to all sorts of foods to replace refined or artificial sugars.
