On Thursday, I visited my friend Jenn at work (etsy) in Brooklyn. Etsy is in DUMBO, which is basically the most adorable place, although almost a little too adorable (in a sort of boring/fake way).
I got a giant meringue for breakfast at Almondine, and I ended up eating the whole thing because the smell of other baked goods made me hungry... the meringue was boring compared to whatever deliciousness I was smelling, unfortunately, although it had a great texture - crispy on the outside, soft and marshmallowy on the inside.
Etsy was also way cute, but not in a boring way. I would definitely apply for a job there if they had an office in SF or I lived in NY. It was really fun to visit and join them for Eatsy lunch. Indian food on the day I was there - yum! (no photos, too busy eating.)
Some of the fun decor:
If you're in the area, I also recommend stopping by Brooklyn Industries - super cute clothes. Window shopping without buying was kind of painful! (no photos, but check out their site.)
I had one more day in the city, but I didn't take many photos. I was really worn out from exploring on my own so much, so I sat in a coffeeshop with my laptop and then had dinner and drinks out with my host and high school friend, Chris. On Saturday I flew to Baltimore to visit my cute little niece and nephew, as well as other relatives - photos soon, for sure!
