All you can drink Mimosa's need I say more??

Went to HK Cafe on 39th and 9th Avenue for brunch this Memorial Day weekend.  While waiting for a table head over to the bar and pay for your all you can drink mimosa, bloody mary or champagne package for 16.95 per person so you can start drinking while you wait for your table.  It is always pretty crowded so you are sure to get in at least 2-3 drinks before you get your table. 

I highly recommend the Lobster Egg's benidict as your choice for Brunch.  Our waiter was wonderful and toasted with us and also made sure our glasses were always full.  He also gave us some Ameretto shots on the house.

I only live 4 blocks a way and it was a challenge getting home.

NYers know the best places....

A couple of weeks ago I headed back to one of my favorite little places in Hell's Kitchen that makes the most delicious breads, Sullivan Street Bakery.  

If I could give one bit of advice to tourists visiting NYC, if you are in a local neighborhood and you see a line outside a door, more than likely this is the place to stop.  As you can see in the above picture this is a Sunday morning and the locals are lining up.

Please help me raise for a good cause...

Gem Craft Boutique is proud that we will be part of "Relay for Life" at North Shore Middle School in Glen Head, NY on June 2 at 7pm. 

The owner of "Gem Craft Boutique" , Deborah Orgel-Gordon (opening June 2012) has joined the team "Knock Out' to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.  Deborah has lost many family members to Cancer over the years and felt it was time to help give back.  Also Deborah's mother battled breast cancer for a second time in her life last fall, during a time when she couldn't help her mom due to a back injury that kept her flat on her back for 4 months.  I feel now I am back on my feet and this is a way I can give back in a different way to support my mom and others I know who have battled cancer. 

Besides Deborah being part of the team to hopefully raise a goal of $2,500 on her own, she has offered setting up a table with "Pink Ribbon" items and will give back 20% of the proceeds of what is sold at the event on Saturday, June 2nd.

So please consider either joining our team to raise funds, coming down and joining in the cause or please consider donating.   Click on the link below for donating or more info:
