Last July while I was still attending wine school in Ontario we went for a quick weekend trip to New York City to visit a friend of ours who attends dental school at NYU. It was our first time visiting New York – so basically 3 days of “how many tourist attractions can we visit in one day without our feet falling off?” Despite our questionable walking shoe choices (there may have been a desperate midday trip to a Nike store in an attempt to find a pair of runners that didn’t make my feet feel like they were going to start bleeding) and slight hangovers from one (four) too many glasses of rosé we managed to fit a ton into our time in NYC!
Our flight back home ended up getting delayed by a full day so we actually ended up with one bonus night. Since we were running low on money by that point we may have had a few drinks before deciding that the McDonald’s at Times Square would be a fantastic meal to end our time New York. And it was. Kind of.
