But first, brunch.
Hungry from our travels, we followed our noses and wound up at Allswell.

You can't help but feel as though you've stepped into your grandpa's basement bar. That is, if your grandpa enjoys whiskey, is the best comfort food cook around and has an eye for vintage decor.

Promenading about can certainly leave a gal thirsty, nothing a bright and hoppy IPA can't fix!
Isn't that how the saying goes?

Crispy breaded chicken, hearty french fries, house made pickles and tangy barbecue sauce for dipping. 
A mighty fine welcome to the big apple, if I do say so myself.Beautyosaurus Lex-New York-Brooklyn-Photography-Travel-Pizza-Manhattan-Summer-lifestyleRefueled and eager to take on the unknown, we ventured off in pursuit of something sweet.Beautyosaurus Lex-New York-Brooklyn-Photography-Travel-Pizza-Manhattan-Summer-lifestyleBeautyosaurus Lex-New York-Brooklyn-Photography-Travel-Pizza-Manhattan-Summer-lifestyle
Winding and weaving led us astray, but we were all too mesmerized to care.
Art galleries have nothing on the streets of Brooklyn. Multitudes of style, artists and aesthetics. It's impossible to not fall in a trance when strutting the streets.
Beautyosaurus Lex-New York-Brooklyn-Photography-Travel-Pizza-Manhattan-Summer-lifestyleWould a trip to Brooklyn be complete without stopping into the famously divine Momofuku Milk Bar?
I'll answer that for you, no!
Opting for the Cornflake-Marshmallow-Chocolate-Chip-Cookie, it was gone eons before I realized that I had forgotten to snap a photo in all of its glory.
A cold brew for the road, and off we went...

Legging it through Brooklyn proved tiring.

Just in time to watch dusk sweep over the city.
Brooklyn you have my heart, my stomach loves what you're cooking up and my feet are still sore from eager adventuring.
I think it's love!
