Hello! Summer planning

Whoa, I have not been on blogger for way too long, what is this new interface?! Very minimal! I like it. Anyway, I hope everyone has been having a fun summer so far. Luke and I have just solidified our vacation plans and I am so excited. We have never really been on a trip together before, besides weekends to see our parents and day trips, so it is a small milestone for us. We booked an apartment on in San Francisco for a week. The apartment reminds me a lot of ours, so I think we are going to be very happy and settled. I always like the idea of going someplace and pretending I live there haha. If any San Franciscan's have recommendations I would really love to hear (eating/shopping/bars for 20 somethings/activities etc.!) Has anyone ever used airbnb before? Browsing through it makes me think I will never stay in a hotel ever again. It's really amazing! We leave the end of July, so we have a bit of waiting to do, but I don't like to rush summer, so the waiting is OK. Here is a little dream packing list for my trip :)

(clockwise from TL - Raquel Allegra dress from La Garconne, Tsumori Chisato sandals from Creatures of Comfort, Anntian dress from Creatures of Comfort, Saska Diez paillette bracelet from Maryam Nassir Zadeh, United Bamboo dress from La Garconne, Drifter pouch from Hickoree's Hard Goods, Rochas sandals from Maryam Nassir Zadeh, and La Garconne Moderne Boy Sweatshirt from La Garconne)

p.s. I am doing a little closet overhaul to help pay for our trip - please check out my ebay if you're interested!
p.p.s. My mom just sent me these awesome photos of San Francisco from a blimp.
p.p.p.s. I just walked over to Hickoree's because I couldn't resist the little pouch :)

NYC Itinerary 3!

1. Bianca - Bleecker St. between Elizabeth St. and Bowery

I don't know how this missed my previous two NYC posts. It might very well be my favorite restaurant. My friend Rachel took me here for the first time last year on a double date and Luke and I have been many times since. I don't know how this place stayed under my radar for so long since I work right by it and it is right in the heart of NYU-land. Bianca is a very authentic Italian restaurant on Bleecker St. and the food is unbelievably tasty. I always get the Tagliatelle Alla Bolognese. And it is CHEAP. Like, really cheap! You can get a nice bottle of wine for $25 and the entrees are mostly under $10. There can be a wait, but they send you to the bar next door and the very charming maitre d' will come and find you.

2. TOP HAT - Broome St. between Ludlow St. and Orchard St.
I remember walking home to my old chinatown apartment one night and walking past this place. It was like this perfect store, with perfect paper goods and ceramics and all kinds of beautifully designed exports, that also advertised toboggan rentals out front. It's one of those places you can't not get something every time you go. And to entice you more, there is a huge selection of wooden bird whistles! I once waited over an hour for my friend Tyler to finish up trying every single whistle (don't do that). Perfect gifts for kinda everyone.

3. Brook Farm General Store - South 6th between Berry and Wythe in Williamsburg
Another fantastic store I have been going to a bit lately! I found their website online this summer, before I realized they had a shop in Williamsburg. They have a very nicely edited selection of kitchen wares and blankets, baskets and other home things that are on the inexpensive side. Definitely check out their website, it is great for gifts, but I really recommend going to the shop. (photos via Sunday Suppers)
More favorites:
Incredible drinks at moody, speakeasy themed Hotel Delmano in Williamsburg, Delicious and inexpensive breakfast at Brasserie Le Barricou on Grand St., very neighborhoody McGolrick park in Greenpoint, and in my opinion, the best East Village Indian restaurant, Brick Lane Curry House on 6th st near 2nd Ave

new goods

vintage Metzler aviators via ebay and a Sylvan Le Hen barrette via Creatures

how come that blood

My friend Jordan and I saw Sam Amidon perform in September of 2005 when we were NYU freshman at, what I think, was a show at North 6th in Williamsburg. I can't remember who he opened for. It was one of those many magical moments when I first arrived in New York hearing him play. A few weeks later, it could have been less than that, my new friends and I invited ourselves to an intimate house party at a loft in south Williamsburg where he played with Doveman and The Robot Ate Me. It was funny, because we definitely weren't invited, it was a very small group of their friends there, but we drank and danced and I think they were excited we came.

ps. just did some research in my gmail - he opened for deerhoof, coincidentally I bought the tickets 6 years ago today :)
