Tarissa first stopped in the city before taking the bus to Hoboken. I was able to take an extended lunch and pal around with her. I met up her at Port Authority and she hadn't yet applied her make-up. Port Authority is no place for her to get dolled up; I took her to the Conde Nast building to freshen up. I had always wanted to show her the Frank Gehry-designed Cafeteria, anyway -- where taking pictures inside is verboten. hehe.
We then went to nearby Shake Shack in Times Square. It was before noon and I could not believe my eyes when I saw that most of the tables were already taken!
Because of cutbacks with the cleaning service in our office, we ALL have been sneezing up a storm. I was thrilled to have this little guy, the iRobot Roomba, come vacuum our cubes! It was soothing to watch. Babe, can we get one?!
Buvette. We had a belated 30th birthday celebration for Matt.

Small plates of goodness!
OMG to the chocolate mousse above!
And I must give photo credit to Lauren for the Buvette card, I would never have been able to achieve that sharpness after a night filled with Prosecco!
