NYC for the weekend 

By: S. Easley

So this weekend me and my BFF decided to take a trip to NY just to do it. We had both been to NY but never really got a chance to explore and experience it really. While we were there we visited the 9/11 memorial, times square, a park, NYU, got some delicious pizza in Greenwich, went to the Tonic Bar in Manhattan for wings & music and then went to Milk River for drinks which is a restaurant and lounge in Brooklyn.

Here’s some pictures

Breakfast in Baltimore 

So today I went Miss Shirley’s (the inner harbor location). My service was great and my server Lauren was so nice☺️. The food was great I got the Benne Seed Chicken ‘N Waffles. So if you’re ever in downtown Baltimore stop by for breakfast or brunch

For the Foodies😋

Bop Brick Oven Pizza which is in Fells Point (800 S Broadway, Baltimore, MD 21231) their pizza is really good and they have a wide range of pizza toppings so you can get creative and try something new. the setup is kind of like your average local pizza shop with an arcade game in the corner. they’re positioned in a way so that you have a good view of Fells Point and whatever event/activity is happening.

Matsuri which is in Federal Hill (1105 S Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21230) you can come here to enjoy authentic Japanese food and happy hour. they also have outdoor seating so that you can enjoy your surroundings while enjoying your food.

 

Shake Shack which is located at the Inner Harbor (400 E Pratt St, Baltimore, MD 21202) has really good burger and fries you can come here and grab a beer or a glass of wine with your food. this is a great place to grab a quick bite to eat while you’re hanging out in downtown Baltimore.

Kobe’s Japanese Steakhouse is located in the White Marsh area (8165 Honeygo Blvd, White Marsh, MD 21236) it’s a bit of a stretch from the downtown area (but it’s worth the trip). You can enjoy the cooking show as your food is made right in front of you and you see the cook performing tricks.

Puerto Rico

Earlier this month I took a trip with one of my friends to Puerto Rico. I was determined to take this trip before it was time to head to classes for the Fall semester. It’s a beautiful place with beautiful weather. Most of our days were spent watching the sunrise and sunset. We spent our days at the beach and our nights enjoying the nightlife and the people. I’ll definitely go back 😊
