Eataly and the Knicks

This past weekend Chris and I met up with some good friends of ours for dinner at Birreria, the rooftop bar at the amazing Eataly in Manhattan. Chris and I are big fans of Eataly, and have been here a few times, but this was our first time at Birreria. I started out with their home-brewed Wanda Beer...but traded it in for a lighter brew, which I enjoyed much better.

We started out with a meat and cheese platter for the table - can you really go wrong with meats and cheeses??

Mandy, Mal and I enjoying our brews and the BEAUTIFUL weather we had on Saturday. It's hard to believe that only a few days before we had gotten about 6 inches of snow!

Our handsome men on the other side of the table: Chris, Billy and Eric.

And all of us together for a photoshoot. Thanks to the kind, and hilarious, man who offered to take our picture and telling us to strictly pose "naughty":

After dinner, we headed to the Knicks vs. Jazz game at Madison Square Garden with Mandy and Billy. This was my first ever pro-basketball game! We had awesome seats six rows off the floor thanks to Chris who got them through work.

The Knicks won 113 to 84! In attendance that night was Philip Seymour Hoffman (!!!)...

Also, John Leguizamo, a Beastie Boy, a famous tennis player, and someone from Sons of Anarchy...no Beyonce or Kim Kardashian, but I'll take it. We had a fun time with Mandy and Billy, and it was definitely an entertaining time!
 
 
What did you do this weekend? 
Have you ever been to a pro-basketball game?

  1. I love Bierreria! I have only been in NYC once, but a friend suggested we go go there, and we spent close to 3 hours sampling the beers and eating cheese/salami. Oh and the caesar salad is amazing!

    1. yes it was an awesome place! Ohh I'll have to try the caesar salad next time. We ordered meals, but I would have been happy just with the meat and cheese plate!

    1. It was super yummy, it's such a great place. I agree: pro games are fun and I think I enjoyed basketball much more than football or baseball because there was more entertainment at time-outs and half-time. There was a LOT going on!

  3. Ooh how fun!!! Yummy pre-game stuff, too.
    I haven't been to a pro game, just a college one when I was little. It bored me then but I'd love it now!
