Wordless Wednesday (Kung Fu Girl Edition)

On the last day of my September 2012 visit to New York City, I spent the afternoon here:

Where the guest was President Obama:

Then I saw this:

And I indulged in a favorite city pasttime, walking 20+ blocks back to my bed and breakfast:

I avoided getting my shoes soaked until the very last block:

But that was okay because there was one more delectable experience ahead, a glass of Kung Fu Girl Riesling:

And an enjoyable chat with Katie and her coworkers at Foragers City Table:

While enjoying this appetizer that deserves much more than the common name of “chips”:

(I don’t remember all the ingredients but there was meyer lemon zest and sage along with the potatoes.)

New York is such a delicious city, rain or shine!

ps – gotta give a shoutout to @DaveMTheWineGuy. I don’t even know him (yet) but I tweeted him and said, “I had this great wine in the City and don’t remember the name. It was a Chardonnay, maybe from Washington State, involving martial arts and the word “boy” in the name.” Somehow his magic wine expert mind whirled into gear and he nailed the Kung Fu Girl Riesling (yeah, I know – not a boy, not a chardonnay) immediately! Thanks, Dave! (His blog can be found here.)

Wordless Wednesday (Truly Memorable People Edition)

I have been on this Boston/Connecticut/New York Trip for five days, and I have been exposed to some incredible individuals. I was introduced to Dave McGillivray, Director of the Boston Marathon. I saw Ricky Martin in Evita. And (last but not least!), I was in the studio audience when President Barack Obama was the sole guest on the Late Show with David Letterman. As wonderful as all that was, it is these great men (and women) who deserve this space on my blog tonight:
