Foodie Club goes to NYC

{NYC Central Park Labor Day weekend 2011}

This blog post is the reason I haven't posted in awhile. Our NYC trip was so action packed and busy and I have so many trillions of photos, the whole idea of blogging it seems intimidating. So instead of doing what I planned on doing, blogging the itinerary of pics of every day. I am just show casing my highlights.
Im sure Eric will go into greater detail about all the wonderful food on his We Are Foodies blog at some point.
So here goes.
We have this little club, A Foodies Club. I guess its pretty much barely a club since there are only 6 of us. 3 couples, all equally obsessed with finding fun restaurants in Utah and out of town, and we all love cooking. So every the last couple of years we rotate houses, making fun dinner and trying new restaurants together. Sometimes other couples join us sometimes its just us 6.
So when Eric and I decided to hit NYC for our anniversary we decided to invite the foodie friends and start an annual tradition of the Foodies Trip. Basically everything about this trip was planned around eating. No lie. I think we ate every 2 hours...
That being said plan on 50% of the following photos to be of things we ate and not people.
