We arrived to the Hilton Hotel in New York City at 3:00pm on Saturday, May 4th. The Hilton is a beautiful hotel and has a fantastic location, close to everything. We were on the 25th floor and had a pretty awesome view of the street down below.
Corinne's friend, Jen, bought her 2 Chicks with Chocolate wine collection chocolates! Very interesting and suuuch cute packaging!
After settling into our room and having a view
shots drinks, we headed downtown to a Chair-Dancing class through From Mind to Body. We were all a little hesitant/skeptical/nervous about what to expect with this class, but it actually was a TON of fun and a great workout!
After our dance class, we walked over to Heartland Brewery for our dinner!
Corinne's Maid of Honor, Marissa, made SURE we all knew who was in charge here ;)
Then it was back to the hotel to change, and pre-game before heading out to Turtle Bay on the East Side of Manhattan. This bar/dance club was packkked for Cinco de Mayo, but was a fun place to dance and have some fun!
The group before we head out to the club!
We then spent 3 hours dancing, drinking (and almost getting into a fight with a crazy lady) at Turtle Bay. It was great fun!
We came back to the hotel around 12:30am and I think were all passed out by 2:00am. Pretty good for a night out on the town!
The next morning, we woke up bright and early to head back out to Queens for brunch with Corinne's family who couldn't stay overnight. The five borough bike tour was taking place, and many streets were closed, causing major traffic jams everywhere. This added some serious travel time to our drive home.
After about 2 hours we showed up at the restaurant, Tavern 18, tired and HANGRY!
Corinne with her future Mother-in-Law
I had a great time celebrating with Corinne and getting to know her girlfriends better. This weekend made me even more excited for her wedding next month! Love you Corinne!
