Tattoos, Tax March, and Easter Outfits - PICTURES!

I wanted to share some pics I took from my recent visit to the city. I spent Easter weekend down in NYC and it was busy, busy busy!

Friday I went to the New York Historical Society to check out the Tattooed New York exhibit.  It was very well done. They had a lot of ground to cover.  Tattooing as we know it has been around for over 300 years and it pretty much started in New York down in the Bowery.  There was even a live tattooing demonstration, it was kind of weird to watch - like I was invading on the person's privacy or something.

Saturday was the Tax March in protest of Trump not releasing his tax returns after he said he would before he was elected.  One of the many promises he has yet to keep or flip-flop on.  The Trump Chicken was there too! It was a very big turnout, probably the biggest turnout of all the Tax Marches that took place that day.

If people don't understand what the big deal is, it is a VERY big deal. It is about transparency, and not doing what you said you were going to do.  The President is clearly hiding something and is doing a very bad job convincing us otherwise.  He owes it to all Americans to disclose this information and prove once and for all that he is not in Russia's pocket (or vice versa).  His hands are in way too many cookie jars and he needs to come clean.

Sunday was Easter and one of the most fun things to do in New York is to check out the Easter Parade on 5th Avenue.  It's not exactly a parade, it just people hanging out on a closed off street showing off their crazy outfits and having their picture taken.  It's not just the hats anymore, it's the whole outfit! People get more and more creative every year and will also use this opportunity to make a political statement.

Always a good time!  It was over 80 degrees that day and Central Park was PACKED!  It was probably the most packed I've ever seen it.  

And what's a weekend trip without FOOD!  Shout out to Hold My Knots at the Gansevoort Market on 14th Street and The Meatball Shop which opened a location in Hell's Kitchen.  I had carb-overload!  I was not expecting to get this much food but it was so delicious. Next time I'll skip the pasta side and choose a veggie instead. Mike had the chicken meatballs with spicy meat sauce and it was really good, I'm getting that next time!
