The Bitches Take on New York City

By Wormy

The three of us decided we needed some long over due girl time, and when BoomBoom moved to NYC a month ago, we couldn’t come up a reason NOT to go and visit her in the Big Apple.  Lots of cocktails, walking, laughing, Italian food, delayed flights, worn off Xanax and a bomb scare later….we have some memories for a life time.

You all might not know this fun fact about Wormy….she has a mild fear of flying.  <using the term mild lightly> To combat this she takes Xanax by the handfuls. Its really easier that way, she’s passed out and everyone can go about their flight without incident.  So we head off to the airport, she’s pilled up and away we go!  We get into JFK around Noon and meet up with BoomBoom for lunch at Josie’s Restaurant East...Turkey Burgers all around…Delish!

As we are munching our lunch, a large “Legalize Weed” protest comes marching down the street.  HotMama about loses her shit she is so excited….she jumps out of her chair mid-bite and runs outside to snap these beauties.

Fueled up and ready to shop, we jump on the subway and head to Times Square.  The very first thing we see?  Naked Cowboy!  We got our dollars out and pushed our way to the front.  This photo opportunity is not going to pass us by!

We strolled around, went to a few souvenir shops and people watched.  Fortunately, we were out of Times Square before the bomb scare.  Actually, we didn’t know anything about it until we were at the airport the next day.  Ignorance is bliss…if Wormy had know that was going on, she probably would have used up her ration of meds in one gulp.

Next up, we head over to BoomBoom’s apartment to have some mid-afternoon cocktails on the roof top.

One thing about BoomBoom, she LOVES the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building. Like, A LOT.  You can see both from her rooftop and she insisted that everytime one or the other came into our line of vision it was her duty to point them out.  <in reality, those are the only 2 NYC buildings she can identify>  As you can see, she really knows her architecture.


We all decided we wanted Italian for dinner.  No idea where to go, we look up restaurants in the hotel directory.  We find two.  We look online for the menu’s. Both are similar but Rossini’s is closer so we decide to go there.

We walk in and immediately sense something is up.  The place’s decor is something out of Hoffa…and wait, what is that I hear?  OPERA?  LIVE???  WTF did we just walk into.  We are scurried in the door <afraid we might run>  and notice we are the youngest people <and most attractive> in there by a solid 40 years.  Umm…okay. Not the hip, happening New York kind of swank we were hoping for.  We are seated directly next to the opera duo and hawt foreign waiter’s are tripping over themselves to get to us.  I think we had about 10 guys running pasta, wine, espresso, chicken, bread, cheesecake, brushetta and cappuccino for us. At first we were laughing our asses off that we are being serenaded to with opera but then we start to get into it.  Throwing out requests, singing along, tossing dollars in the tip jar…our usual hijinx. <We flipcamed the opera. Once its up we’ll let you know>  It really was quite good, once you got used to it.  And the food….OH MY GAWD!!!  Simply put…the best!  I mean really, one of the best meals I’ve ever had in the entire world. And I’ve been around.  Go there…you won’t regret it.

We are getting ready to head out and Hot Mama spots the Wall of Fame and snaps this:Well hell…if 50Cent thinks it’s a good place to eat, it must be!  I just can’t see him eating there, listening to opera.  Its making my head hurt a bit.

After dinner we hit up McFaddens, which was crazy rockin, girls dancing on the bar, “someone’s going to get pregnant” overcrowded type place.  They play really great music and it was really fun.  We have video of this as well.  I know, I know…I have to get Chilla to put these together for us.

The next day, we met BoomBoom for breakfast at Dunkin Donuts <well where else would we go???> and headed out to the airport.  Everyone was sad. Some might have got a bit misty.  We had such a great time, and BoomBoom was an awesome hostess.   We love you BB…..can’t wait to visit again!

  1. Obviously the car-bomber guy heard you lot were going to Time Square and figured he could take out your infidel blog with one big bang.

    Glad you out-foxed him!

  2. Seattle

    Next stop, seattle! You can eat 5x the xanaxon the way, I’ll take you to the wall of gum and theb get you drunk at the winery and brewery for one dollar

  3. I picture the theme from Sex in the City playing whenever the four of you walked anywhere. Love it that Wormy goes all Elvis with the pills for a 90-minute flight. Then gets her drink on.

    And what’s with the Naked Cowboy getting all handsies with our Bitches!? Somebody needs to learn their manners.
