NYC: American Museum of Natural History

The American Museum of Natural History is AMAZING. I spent about four hours there and didn’t get to see everything I wanted to see! I’ve been wanting to go ever since I watched Night at the Museum and I wish I could have spent more time there.

I used CityPASS for my admission and that included Rose Center for Earth and Space and a Hayden Planetarium Space Show. I felt quite nauseated after watching the show, Journey to the Stars, though! There are some useful apps that can be downloaded.

NYC: Isabella’s

We were hoping to grab some burgers at the Shake Shack on Columbus Avenue before going to the American Museum of Natural History but we were too early. So we had brunch at Isabella’s instead. I liked my huevos rancheros and the rest of the brunch menu was a lot more interesting than just the usual eggs ben and whatnot.

NYC: Menchanko-Tei

Dinner on the second day was at Menchanko-Tei.  The hot noodles, sake and plum wine that we had really hit the spot on that cold evening!
