Labor Day in NYC

Took the train up on Friday morning. We went for a walk in Hoboken and saw Carlos' Bakery from Cake Boss. There was a line to get in - I think people were probably waiting for 45 minutes. We decided to pass. But I did take a picture of the store front. For dinner, we had pizza.

Saturday we had lunch at Friend of a Farmer and then went to the Union Square Farmers Market. It's so huge and sells everything! We bought some heirloom tomatoes, corn on the cob, lemon cucumbers, cheese, a baguette, a bottle of wine, and a chocolate mint plant. After a nap, we went to see The Weepies in concert at Irving Plaza. I had such a great time! Their music is so relaxing and feel good.

On Sunday, we walked around the city and did some window shopping. Went to Blooming Nails to get a mani-pedi. Max opted for an extra long leg massage instead of getting a manicure - and then fell asleep!  :) In the afternoon I went with a friend to Yi Pak Spa. It's a Korean spa - a totally new experience for me! It included a 10 minutes in the steam room (at 102 degrees), a REALLY VIGOROUS full body scrub (thought my tan was going to come off but actually didn't), a full body massage, a facial, shampooing for hair, a milk bath rinse, and a time in the sauna to dry off. I'm pretty sure we were there for about 2 hours. For dinner we had Korean BBQ at Muk Eun Ji. Since it was still early, we went to Chinatown to get moon cakes.
