kristian and i took the chinatown bus. for anyone in the nyc area, i totally recommend it. we were expecting it to be pretty shady, especially since it was rumored that one of the bus companies was recently shut down for possible drug trafficking, but it was great.
clean, timely, and friendly service.
we arrived saturday around noon to our great little hotel in dupont circle and the wallace's arrived soon after. we became quite excited as we read about some free amenities that were included with our hotel stay, namely free apples during the day and milk and cookies at night! (10:30 to be exact)
milk and cookies?! we were ecstatic.
anyone who knows us knows that we love cookies.
but free cookies are even better!
and milk?? what kind of heaven-like place was this?
as we left to explore the city, donald and kristian made a point of letting the front desk know that they would want to be sure and tell the kitchen to bake extra tonight.
as ridiculous as it sounds, we basically planned our whole day around being back to the hotel by 10:30pm so as not to miss out on this delectable treat.
neat to stand where MLK did for "i have a dream..." on MLK weekend
note the brown twigs sticking out of the ground. i was thinking that of all the homes in america, this one might possibly have a good landscaping service?
oh well, it was still magnificent, and this is just the back!
we had dinner at a happenin' little spot called busboys and poets.
it was almost too cool for us immature adults. we did get free dessert, though, after our waiter forgot about us.
