I stayed home from work on Friday which conveniently happened to be the day that President Obama would be landing his helicopter in Prospect Park to visit a school in Crown Heights. The landing pad was so incredibly close to my apartment that I had no excuse not to witness the big arrival. Amazing! It was a little tough to see his four helicopters land, but I was thisclose to his motorcade. Highlight of my year!
In other weekend happenings (less exciting of course) Kurt and I took part in the final night of Madison Square Eats and had some wine at Eataly. Who needs a multi-hour wait at Roberta's when I can get the same thing in 10 minutes a few weeks a year?! Capitalize on that, people. One of my favorite fall events is the Fort Greene Park Pupkin Parade where people dress their dogs up in incredible costumes. It truly drove my puppy desire to an all new level. A mini Australian Shepard is my newest desire (hint, hint anyone willing to get me a puppy). I made a huge pot of Santa Fe Soup to accompany Saturday football games. Sunday was pretty low-key except a long journey to the UWS for some suburban shopping at Michael's and Home Goods (the one downside of urban living, including schlepping my spoils home on the train). Kurt took me out to a lovely Sunday night dinner at Brook-vin and BAM! the weekend is over again. Where do the hours go?
