This past weekend some of my best friends came to visit from North Carolina! The weather which hovered around the 60s and 70s was perfect for brunching (when is it not perfect for brunching? ;), biking about this great island, and for general frolic al fresco. I highly recommend Berry Park (Brooklyn) for rooftop cocktails. We sipped on the Gin Haze-- Hendrick's gin, prosecco, St.Germain, jalapeño, and lime-- and watched the sunset over the New York skyline. The Penrose (Upper East Side) has always been a favorite brunch spot, you might be able to tell why from the food snaps above, and their morning cocktail menu is one of the best! Lastly, if you're trying to get from point a to point b versus general sightseeing, definitely Citibike over the subway or bus. If you're not already a member, a 24 hour access pass is only $10, but you'll need to get to your destination in 30 minutes or less. Happy Spring adventuring!
