Frying Away at the Frying Pan and other Memorial Day Weekend Adventures

While most of the city flocked to pretty beaches and swanky pools this Memorial Weekend, we decided to stay in the city and see what fun we could get into. With such amazing weather in store for us we planned our days around outside activities. What better activity to start with then a Mexican style boozy brunch. We discovered that the best way to enjoy a brunch is by setting yourself up for success drink wise. To the much despair of our friend we uncovered that no one and I mean no one, even if you think you have a stomach with a metal lining, should start off their meal with a spicy margarita. It does not set the tone for a stellar brunch, plus it puts you seriously behind on the drink count with your friends. After brunch we moseyed on over to Central Park where we listened to music, thew around a Frisbee and secretly sipped on coconut rum…don’t judge. With half of the NYC population away we had a decent amount of space to relax and only hit about 10 people with our poorly thrown Frisbee.

We ended Saturday at The Boat Basin where we got to watch the sun set!

We woke up Sunday to even more beautiful weather and the prospect of two more days of shenanigans. We decided it would be the perfect day for the Frying Pan. We got there at 1pm on the dot to sunny skies and the idea of Pitchers of Sangria floating through our heads. We found the boat to not be overly crowded and were able to secure ourselves two tables on the upper deck in, what seemed ideal at the time, the direct sunlight. We dressed in our best nautical themed attire; cropped tops and matching shorts which we somehow didn’t realize were “matching” until pointed out hours into the day. We spent a good part of the day laughing and drinking buckets of corona.

Like any good friends who all forgot to put on sunscreen we adopted the rule “Friends don’t let friends unevenly tan” and with that we rotated chairs every hour to allow for maximum tanning. And thank the sweet sun gods we did because boy did we burn…evenly of course!
