Weekend Update - 10/22/2012

Happy Monday, everybody. I spent this (gorgeous) weekend in the City trying to recoup from the last couple weeks of mayhem. Friday night was the launch party of Widow Jane whiskey in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The venue was Cacao Prieto, an old horse stable turned chocolate factory, had free bbq/chocolate/cocoa liqueur/and, of course, whiskey tastings and a bluegrass band...all right down my alley and combined to make it one of the coolest events I've been to in NYC. After that we bar-hopped to Sunny's (super cute, live music, feels like you've taken a step back in time upon entering) and finally Hope & Anchor for a duck burger (amazing & only $8) and fries. Next was my friend Dani's going away party at Highlands in the West Village and then Sunday was spent cleaning out my closet. Yes, day, because it was such an arduous task. Ready for the week ahead kicking off with Louis C.K. at the New York City Center tonight and charity dinners every other night of the week before the Halloween festivities commence. Hope you all had a nice weekend!

{attempt #2 in one week to perfect my pasta sauce...adding shiitake slices this go round}

{above average temps called for pumpkin fro-yo w/ reese's & yogurt covered mini-pretzels}

{and because Kennedee hasn't had much air time lately and is just too cute to keep to myself, here's an iphone photo from my sister yesterday that absolutely made my weekend}
