Crawfish and City Bakery

Last weekend we went to a delicious crawfish boil at the Boat Basin Cafe on the Upper West Side.  One of Mitch's good friends from Starkville, Jimmy, started an organization called Crawfish for Cancer after his dad was diagnosed with multiple myeloma cancer.  This was the third annual boil in NYC, and it was a blast.  We spent about five hours outside eating crawfish and talking with friends.  There were several people from Starkville that came up to help cook, and they can cook some mean crawfish.  All around, it was a lovely Saturday afternoon and the close to 700 people that showed up, helped raise a lot of money for a great cause.

On an unrelated note, I was introduced to a wonderful bakery/restaurant near Union Square, and I am slightly obsessed.  I met my discipleship group at City Bakery on Saturday morning, and it was delicious!  I got the bakers muffin, but there were so many other pastries I wanted to try.  And I hear their hot lunch buffet is pretty delicious too.  I can't wait to go back and try lunch sometime soon!  Also, their space has a great feel to it, and is huge by New York standards.

I hope everyone is having a great week!  We have been engulfed in baby registering around here; which has taken a little bit more time than I anticipated.  I couldn't resist buying a couple of cute little outfits and headbands for little Maybelle...they are just so darn cute!  I will post pictures of our purchases soon.

You and Jonah must go with us to the crawfish boil next year; it was delicious! Thanks for the City Bakery recommendation; it lived up to the hype!
