new york city
Last weekend I went to New York City for the Tribeca Film Festival. My friend Jennifer's brother, Dustin Thompson, is a filmmaker currently living in Los Angeles. His film, The Travelogues, was accepted into the Tribeca Film Festival (the only experimental film in the Festival), so we, of course, wanted to go to check it out and show our support! Thanks to Dustin, we got into the Filmmakers Lounge, after parties, and a couple films. We were able to really experience the Festival and all that it has to offer! THANK YOU, Dustin!
In addition to all the Tribeca happenings, we also ventured on our own to explore all the New York Highlights. It was Jennifer's first time to the city, and I used to live there, so I showed her all the ins and outs, including how to see the Statue of Liberty up close for FREE while enjoying a cruise on the water (How you ask? Staten Island Ferry.), where to find the best mango margarita and Mexican corn in town (Hint: Cuban), and why there is so much hype about New York manicures (Psst: They're surprisingly, extremely affordable!). It was an AMAZING trip full of good friends-new and old-great food, and beer, and awesome weather! Here are some photo highlights
