Manhattan Cocktail Classic Gala

Once I woke up from my cat nap early Friday evening I started getting ready for the Gala. I decided on a simple black cocktail dress which had a bright gold zipper down the back. Since the dress I wore was so simple I accentuated the gold from the zipper with black and gold jewelery.

New York City - Friday Afternoon

This past weekend M and I headed down to New York City where we attended The Manhattan Cocktail Classic Gala at the New York Public Library. Matt and his business partner were invited to the event thanks to Governor Cuomo, who was kind enough to pay for all of New York's distilleries to attend (thanks Gov'na!). 
We arrived in the city around lunch time, which was early enough to drop all the makings for about 700 cocktails off at the library before the deadline. With a bunch of time to kill, we parked the car and walked around until we found our lunch spot. M and I opted for Caliente Cab Co. which had an outside seating area that was perfect for enjoying the warm sun and one of their large margaritas, obviously.

A Taste of Albany & Champagne on the Park

With warmer weather underway, the Capital Region has been having an increased number of events each week and I am loving every minute of it! At the beginning of the month we attended A Taste of Albany, which is a culinary showcase and benefit for the Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless. Not only was this all for a great cause, but every aspect of the evening was absolutely wonderful and delicious. There was so much amazing food, wine, sweets, beer, and spirits at this event that I was constantly finding myself surprised at the tasty treats I discovered around each corner. Here are a few of the photos I was able to snap....

April Catch Up: Part 1

For the past couple of weeks I've been a busy little bee.  I think it has something to do with my new job, after staring at a computer screen all day my eyes and brain are exhausted and want to do nothing but relax.  That being said, my weekends have been pretty full with friends & fun times, amazing food & fabulous memories! 
Rather than going day by day, or sharing every special moment, I've decided to combine the past couple of weeks by doing a two part 'catch-up' post of what I've been up to!
I hope you enjoy!
When my darling twin Caitlyn came up for a visit we had every intention of making a delicious dinner at home...but then our mutual love for sushi took over and we ordered in tons of sushi, salad, soups, and appys!
