We started out shopping for new ballroom shoes with only four of us. Then, because other dancers on the team live in the city area, our group grew to eight. It was great seeing everyone outside of campus! We grabbed lunch at this darling pizza joint then went shopping for some costumes for our upcoming competition in Boston. I found a statement making leopard print skirt with a simple black lacy top for the Latin dances. After shopping, we wandered into Little Korea and ate at a buffet styled restaurant. I was so excited because I have never eaten Korean food and it was a nice little change. I thought it was excellent; it kind of resembles Chinese food almost.

After dinner we went across the street and had some Pinkberry, which for those of you who are not familiar, is a frozen yogurt desert place with a million different types of toppings, almost like a Coldstone. The night didn't end at Pinkberry; we took the 6 train down to Soho and got some drinks at the fabulous bar on Mott and Spring Street. It was great because it was dimly lit and felt almost exclusive; we had our own little table in the corner and had a ton of laughs over some delicious drinks. It is hard to see my outfit but I am wearing Jeans (Levi); T-shirt (Charlotte Russe); Tank (Old Navy); Boots (Sister's); Jewelry (Mom's vintage collection); Jacket (The North Face); Bag (Juicy Couture).
Caramel Cherry Martini anyone?
The night finally ended and I waited for the Express Bus to take me back home. I left with some great new memories, closer friendships, and a great new Latin outfit for Competition.
There is just no place like New York City. None!
Check back tomorrow for Part 2!
