Spring in New York - Day 1

After flying into New York on the morning direct from KC (yay!) for some work meetings, I checked into my hotel and headed out in search of my first meal of the day (due to turbulence, there was limited service - this is becoming a regular thing, have you noticed?). I walked by Rintintin and thought it looked cute.
I mean, look at this sweet bar.
And the menu sitting outside the door mentioned this yummy sounding caprese sandwich - it did not disappoint and the open windows/walls let in a lovely breeze.
After lunch I walked around and passed this little pocket park, Elizabeth Street Garden. It was full of people (this was the best photo I could take without capturing anyone sunning themselves) and statues. Living in Kansas City, I sometimes forget how limited open green space is in other places.
After getting a bit of work done in my hotel room, I headed up to the CitizenM rooftop deck on the 20th floor for a cocktail with a co-worker. I had this most delicious "Firefighter Skateboarder" drink - makrut leaf-infused Bombay Sapphire, Buddha's Hands Limoncello, lemongrass, lime, laos, coconut cream, egg white, and centella asiatica soda.
Finally, we headed to The Library at The Public for family dinner - full of friends and colleagues (past and present) from Mozilla for some food, drinks, and catching up.
