MoMA, and an afternoon out to tea

If you go too long in New York City without visiting a museum or some cultural attraction you start to feel downright guilty. Thankfully,  we all wanted to see the American Modern exhibit at MoMA, which featured Hopper, O’Keeffe and Wyeth.

We brought our little duck (umbrellas) along, as it was a rainy afternoon.IMG_6198 Afterwards, Aunt Maureen took us to high tea at Bergdorf Goodman. It’s quite an experience to eat little cucumber sandwiches and drink tea in white china—with views of Central Park–among older women in Prada whose faces are smoothed by Botox. Couldn’t imagine my Labor Day weekend any other way. IMG_6201 IMG_6202 IMG_6206 IMG_6208 IMG_6209 IMG_6210 IMG_6211 IMG_6212 Here’s a tip: If any restaurant ever asks if you are celebrating any special occasion, always, always say yes! Of course, there’s always something to celebrate in life, isn’t there? So nothing is really a lie. This time we went with a celebratory graduation tea and we got this delightful little cheesecake. (The waitress kindly did not comment on the fact that graduation occurs in May). IMG_6213IMG_6214Ahh if only every afternoon we could retire to the parlor and quench our thirst with a spot of tea and a dainty snack!

    Reminds me of the quote: “Bread and water can so easily be toast and tea.”

  2. A bit of egg salad and bread never looked so good!

  3. …but the company was the best part. And I recommend the MOMA exhibit to anyone in the vicinity.
