Well, Ryan's brother has been in town all week, which means:
better pictures for a while
lots of food all day.
a lot less blogging and a lot more 30 Rock.
So, on this day the weather was still nice enough for a day dress and we went out on the town with Kevin, first to The Smith for artisan burgers, and then to the Shake Shack for custard and shakes.
The Smith was pretty crowded and had a great atmosphere. the entrance was big and open to the street, which was fun and nice on a breezy night. The burgers were pretty crazy. I actually had a hard time getting my mouth around it for a bite, and the fries were awesome too. They served us sparkling water out of a blue glass bottle, and I tried it again after years and years to see if my tastes had changed or matured. Nope. I just don't really like it, okay? I lived in Europe, they have it everywhere, I get that it's classy and more desirable than normal water, and I still. don't like it. I also hate nutella. what's all THAT fuss about?
The Shake Shack is so fun at night with all the bulbs lit up, bathing the park in a nice pleasant glow. The line was long, but it's always long, and it was still worth it for the experience of sitting in the little cafe chairs under the lights and eating custard and milkshakes with people you like. We split a honey fig flavored frozen custard and a caramel malt.
