|Dinner from Eli's|
Walking home (just a few blocks), I decided to check out Eli’s (Nora Ephron shopped here, so if it was good enough for her..). It’s another amazing New York City food mecca. A bit pricier than my other favorite, Agata and Valencia, I still managed to pick up dinner (sushi), breakfast (apple turnover), and light dinner for Sunday (pumpkin/butternut squash soup, crackers and cheese). Popping into the wine store next door, W.I.N.E., I rounded out my order with a nice bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.

Truth be told, the show at Eastville Comedy Club (E4th Street between the Bowery and 2nd Ave) cost me $4! I joined a “seat-filling club” for a few months in New York, and it was the first time I finally took advantage of it. It won’t be the last. I was thoroughly entertained for a couple of hours by Judy Gold, Harris Stanton, my second favorite Gary Peter, and Janeane Garofalo whom I have had the pleasure of seeing in the past.

|My wonderful treat|
Since I was in the East Village I decided I owed it to myself to go to Chikalicious, an amazing dessert restaurant on E10th between 1st and 2nd. Amazing place. And, I was treated very nicely indeed. It was a three course dessert that began with a small glass of Proscecco while I waited. While waiting for my dessert (I love to sit at the bar and watch Chika in action), I was given a tiny bowl of jasmine sorbet with a banana-lime mix. Then the main course followed, an awesome warm chocolate tart with pink peppercorn ice cream and red wine sauce with a lovely glass of Churchill Graham Reserve Port. This was followed by a dish of tiny petite forts. Wonderful.

Home again to share a light dinner, and chat, with Kristi. Now, off to catch my bus back to Boston, yet again!
