New York Islanders

My birthday dinner at EATaly

My sister and brother in law ate here when they were in NYC.  They raved about the authenticity of the Italian food, we just had to try it.  So, for my birthday, we came here for dinner.  The place is divided into sections, such as a meat section, […]

Outlet shopping and the Wedding!

My cousin’s wedding wasn’t until 1:00 pm, so we had time to run over to the outlet mall in Woodbury, NY.  The outlet mall is located about 45 minutes from the hotel, and no matter what route you took, the state made you pay tolls.  Seriously $1.50 here […]
