N.Y.C. Earthquake


How can I call this NYC Cooks if I don't talk about the biggest thing to hit NYC- literally. Yesterday in NYC we felt the tremors of 5.9 scale earthquake, it was like nothing I have ever experienced. I was sitting in my office when I felt my chair shaking, shaking hard. At first I though I was dizzy, next wondered if my office was possessed? Don't judge me this is NY, we don't have earthquakes! Then I look out my window and hear in the streets people just as confused as me going, what the hell was that an earthquake? Without a moment to spare I jumped on Facebook and Twitter (we all know that's where the real news happens), sure enough friends and fans we're experiencing the same thing! I though it was a coincidence yesterday post was about lobster tails and life's indulgences, I think we should indulge far more often because tomorrow is never promised.
After the dust had settled, I got to thinking- how many things did I put off because I 'm, too tired or I'll just do it tomorrow? How many places have I wanted to visit and just tossed it up to "one day" . Make today that "one day". Last night instead of lounging around because it's a weeknight and I have work in the a.m., I decided to take my mom and nephews to Coney Island for some rides and games just because!

Coney Island has really cleaned itself up and us Brooklynites are lucky to have a famous landmark in our own backyard. First stop, Nathan's for some hot dogs and cheese fries. Then off to Luna Park for a few games and some rides. To top off the night a long stroll on the boardwalk embracing the summer breeze. Carpe Diem, my friends.
