During his first full day in the city (Saturday), Eric and I did a tremendous amount of walking. We walked to the point where exhaustion kicked in and we found ourselves taking naps every time we managed to sit down. I might have overachieved when it came to planning our New York City adventures.
Stop one was stopping by the Hester Street Fair in the Lower East Side. In a quick summary, it was a cute little, hipster street fair full of small food, clothing, and accessories businesses. We got to taste some incredible olive oils and my eyes kept drifting towards the expensive vintage dresses and sunglasses. My wallet held me back though (although the oven-baked margarita pizza was screaming my name).
After getting our fill of the Lower East Side and exploring the nearby parks, Eric and I rode the subway up to Central Park for some bike riding. In order to save a few dollars, we opted to rent our bikes from a sketchy guy standing on the side street who led us two blocks away from the park. Our wild imaginations had us preparing for our ultimate downfalls, but it ended up being just fine and if anything, just a little bit sketch.

Finally, we ended our evening by meeting up with a handful of my co-workers. After stopping by Martin Parr's latest exhibition, walking down the High Line, and grabbing dinner in the East Village, everyone headed over to Williamsburg to The Gutter. What's The Gutter? Two words: Drunk bowling.
If there's anything I want you to take away from this blog post, it's that nothing is better than drunk bowling.
