A Long Weekend in New York

We enjoyed one helluva weekend in NYC, including eating, drinking, socializing, a little culture and even a trip to the theater. Here’s a comprehensive, linear itinerary of our exploits.

We went on spring break, invented a cocktail, and named it a Palm Springs Whiskey Sour

We visit Palm Springs every March. With all the fresh grapefruit just a pluck away, we’d be fools not to make whiskey cocktails with them. We call this one a Palms Springs Whiskey Sour.
