It is always nice to see friends and loved ones and share the holiday cheer with good food and great entertainment.

Friday night- tom and I met up with our friends, hannah and paul. we had dinner at HAVANA NYC (38th street, between 5th and 6th ave). Good Cuban food with speedy service. I love when the food comes quickly! Then we went to NATIONAL COMEDY THEATRE (36th street, between 8th and 9th ave) for an improv comedy show. For $15, this is a GREAT show. It was hilarious! And the improv is all based on what the audience chooses. Guaranteed good laughs!

Saturday- I met up with my girlfriends, julie and haelee. We had brunch at CALLE OCHO (81st street and columbus ave). Venue was cute, food was okay, and the sangria bar was awesome! Free unlimited sangria with your meal and let me tell you, they had like 6 different sangrias to choose from! The food was very reasonably priced ($12 – $18). Definitely a good spot for brunch!

The best part of our brunch was julie getting a parking ticket. A man parked behind Julie saw that she got a ticket and gave her his parking stub so that she could fight her parking ticket. It was so nice of him. As we were thanking him, he ended it with “Merry Christmas.” And thats what I love about the holiday season…people giving from their hearts and spreading the holiday cheer around. Thank god there are still kind-hearted people out there! Definitely made an impact on me…makes me want to pass the kindness forward.

Saturday night – tommy and i stayed in watching our 2 favorite shows: CRIMINAL MINDS and WEEDS. If you haven’t seen it, you must catch an episode. You will definitely get hooked!
