Drinking coffee and eating takeaway cake in Union Square park was a good way to spend an afternoon. A better way would have been to shop in all the stores there, but I didn’t want to weep at my credit card bill when it came. Not that that hasn’t happened before.
We were supposed to eat at Cheesecake Factory but since it was gay pride weekend, there were a zillion more people than usual (so I’ve been told) and there was going to be at least an hour wait. So we just ordered a slice each and ate outside. There were so many cake choices and didn’t know which one to try! So I ordered what I usually do: red velvet cake. (What? Red velvet is the best!)
We went up to Macy’s to get a view of the park from up high. I tried not to look at the stuff because once I started browsing, I’d be unstoppable.
Since I’m pretty sure I’ll be back
next year someday, I don’t feel too bad about not getting to shop. Also, I might be more of Haight Street material, hehe.
