Wednesday night seemed like a good night for celebrating, so we found ourselves making a beeline to La Esquina in Williamsburg. I had taken a photo of the Happy Hour sign days before, you know, for future reference. We ate indoors in the converted chrome "rail car" style diner on the bar side.

Fraunces Tavern in the Financial District - first eatery in America to offer take-out!

Great small bar in NYC to get a fresh inexpensive drink. Definitely has a beach/hipster casual feel to it.

Cream of Chicken and Rice. // ignore the picture. Its from a travel site. Just made this tonight as comfort food for hubby. It was amazing! So easy.

Brooks' House of Bar-B-Q in Oneonta NY is a fantastic, large-sized fun dining destination specializing in out-of-this world BBQ chickens and ribs! Brooks' is about a half hour drive from Cooperstown.

If ever in NYC, the Black Label Burger is the ulitmate. Prime dry aged beef. Saw it on an episode of No Reservations and went myself. Giggled while we ate it was so heavenly!

7. Del Frisco's Midtown This is the go-to spot for Midtown happy hour-ers and suit-wearing dudes who like top-notch beef cuts like the original Double Eagle and a 32oz Wagyu Longbone.
