Saturday train

On Saturday we went to Manhattan to Robin's apartment for a housewarming. After three subways and walking through a thunderstorm with sideways rain we arrived at Shake Shack for dinner before going to the party. Another foray into the monsoon and we arrived at the adorable apartment. Robin introduced me to Pimm's with fruit, which is my new favorite drink and her wonderful boyfriend Tom. Seeing Matt, Adam, Chris and Robin was fantastic because we have all known one another since about 1999 at summer camp. The best thing about getting together with old friends is that no matter how much time lapses, its like we all could have been together just a few weeks before.
I'm contemplating the rain and whether or not going out is a good idea. (It is!)The bitter roses, and the delicious cupcakes.Adam, Chris and Rich sampling the beer from Greenport, Long Island.
An owl, glowing with wisdom.Our host Robin contemplating what Chris is saying. Check out her awesome vintage pants and homemade hair flower!

  11. Pimm's Cup is a popular drink down south. I had many at The Owl Lounge when my girlfriend went to art-school in Baltimore. And, hey, I recognize that train!

  13. Looks like lovely weather! ; ) I've never tried Pims but it seems to be a blogger favourite so I may have to give it a try... and I would never say no to a cupcake.

  22. (And the cupcakes were dead easy. I used Cherrybrook Kitchen's allergy friendy vanilla butter cream icing, and IKEA's cake decorating kit! Still tasty a week later...)
