|Cocktail hour in the room!|
Jen's friend, Cailtin, (check out her amazing food blog here) recommended an awesome taqueria called Empellon. Since our reservations weren't until 7:30, we decided to pop into one of the many cool bars we passed on our way to the restaurant. We settled on One If By Land, Two If By Sea. After chatting with the bartender, I discovered he was a fellow Penn Stater (we truly are everywhere) and was given his personal concoction on the house. You have to love that Nittany Lion Pride. Finally, it was time to eat! We headed over and entered the bustling and tight waiting area of Empellon. This place was packed and popular. Everywhere we went we seemed to be making friends and Empellon was no exception. While waiting for our table where 'two minutes' turned into twenty, three gentlemen going to dinner with their wives boasted how wonderful the food was and how they've been there a dozen times. With the food selections in NYC, I knew being such a repeat customer was a good sign.

After our meal, we continued into the night with more drinks, fun times which even included some dart playing, and memories of our weekend together that will last a lifetime. We are already planning our next girls getaway!
