Weekend of Ice Cream

If I had to define this past weekend, it would essentially be defined by the amount of ice cream that my sister and I consumed. She came to visit for a long weekend so naturally I had a bunch of activities in mind. Luckily, we both agreed that it would involve eating, wandering around, and watching Orange is the New Black. On Thursday and Friday (since I clearly hadn’t gotten enough of them last weekend) I dragged Molly back to Blue Marble Ice Cream and Bluestone Lane Collective Cafe.

On Saturday we walked over the Manhattan Bridge, something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. I’ve done the Brooklyn Bridge a few times but I had always heard about the great views from the less popular bridge. They didn’t disappoint! The other highlight of the weekend was finally going to Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream in the Lower East Side. I had the salted pretzel caramel ice cream, which was a tad on the salty side (normally I like salty ice creams with just a hint of salt). My sister had that too but also mixed it with angel food ice cream which I think cut the saltiness a bit. Morgenstern’s has such interesting flavors and I can’t wait to go back and try green tea pistachio, raw milk, and blueberry labne. Molly and I finished the weekend off with dinner at Henry Public and a delicious and tangy cocktail. I hope everyone has a great week!
