New York is known for its great food, so next time you are in the city check out some of these awesome places!

1. Jack's Wife Freda

I found Jack's Wife Freda on Instagram a few years ago and fell in love with it. The food they serve is delicious. I mean, look at that picture above. Isn't your stomach just rumbling at the sight of it? The website states, "Jack’s Wife Freda is a lively all-day bistro executing American-Mediterranean cooking & classic cocktails in understated digs. Serving breakfast, lunch & dinner, 7 days a week. Long hours, deep sense of hospitality, playful sense of humor and reasonable prices. Revising familiar twists on everyday food." I think that quote in itself describes Jack's Wife Freda perfectly. I definitely recommend you take a trip down and try it!

2. 10Below Ice Cream


You've probably heard of this place from one of those Foodie videos you watched on Facebook. This is the ice cream shop that rolls your ice cream, rather than scoop. I went here last week and fell in love. Who knew that ice cream would taste better rolled?

132 Allen St, New York, NY 10002

136-17 39th Ave, Flushing, NY 11354

3. Bar Pitti


I haven't been to Bar Pitti, but my friends recommended it to me. Upon looking for it on Google I found that a significant amount of celebrities have dined here. Including, but not limited to: Jim Carrey, Scott Disick, Heidi Klum, Kanye West and Beyonce. If you're in the mood to dine like a celeb and eat some incredible Italian food, Bar Pitti is the perfect spot to check out.

4. Black Tap


Black Tap is all the rage right now, but not for their burgers or their beers, but their milkshakes. I haven't been able to get their yet, considering every time I walk by the line is around the block, but I won't give up. These milkshakes are so over the top, but it seems that everyone is more than willing to gain a few pounds just to eat them.

529 Broome St, New York, NY 10013

5. Sugar Factory


Like Bar Pitti, Sugar Factory is another celebrity magnet. From Rupert Grint to Drake, celebrities seem to be attracted to these colorful drinks. Honestly, do me a favor and check out their celebrity gallery. Not only is the food good here, the atmosphere is so much fun! Also, this fishbowl type drinks are so cool to see them make.

835 Washington St, New York, NY 10014

6. Two Hands


This cafe is described as a "bright and airy cafe." Here you can order anything from juice to espresso and pastries, salads and sandwiches. My friends love this place and every time I pass it while the city I always wish I had the time to stop in and get a cup of coffee. Definitely on my list of places to hit up next time I'm in the area.

164 Mott St, New York, NY 10013

7. Serendipity 3


Serendipity 3 is an endearing little shop in the Upper East Side. The meals you can eat are delicious, but the best part is the dessert. The frozen hot chocolate is delectable and the sundaes are amazing. Also, if you have a spare $1,000 you can order the Golden Opulence Sundae. Not really sure what's in it, but they need a reservation 48 hours in advance if you want to get it.

225 E 60th St, New York, NY 10022

8. Little Cupcake Bakeshop


Little Cupcake Bakeshop is another great place to treat yourself. The treats that are made here are made from the freshest ingredients from farms in the Hudson Valley, Catskills, Vermont and New Jersey. As a plus, the Prince Street location always has really cool murals on the side. Perfect cupcake plus cool mural equals a perfect Instagram.

30 Prince Street, New York, NY 10012

598 Vanderbilt Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11238

9. Dos Caminos


One of the first things this restaurant's about page says is, "We've got over 100 kinds of tequila... Need we say more?" And honestly, they probably don't have to say more. If you're in the mood for Mexican, and some tequila, this place is just for you. Fortunately, there's more than one spot.

675 Hudson Street at 14th St, New York, NY 10014

475 West Broadway at Houston St, New York, NY 10012

W New York Times Square, 1567 Broadway, New York, NY 10036

373 Park Avenue South at 27th St, New York, NY 10016

825 Third Avenue at 50th St, New York, NY 10022

10. Holey Cream


One of the stand out treats from Holey Cream is the donut ice cream sandwich you see here. The amount of times I have seen this sweet treat come across my Instagram feed is too much to count and, yet, I haven't made it there yet. Holey Cream is open late, so no matter when you start craving something sweet, you can always pop by and get something from here.

To The Parent Who Chose Addiction

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

261751

When I was younger I resented you, I hated every ounce of you, and I used to question why God would give me a parent like you. Not now. Now I see the beauty and the blessings behind having an addict for a parent. If you're reading this, it isn't meant to hurt you, but rather to thank you.

Thank you for choosing your addiction over me.

Throughout my life, you have always chosen the addiction over my programs, my swim meets or even a simple movie night. You joke about it now or act as if I never questioned if you would wake up the next morning from your pill and alcohol-induced sleep, but I thank you for this. I thank you because I gained a relationship with God. The amount of time I spent praying for you strengthened our relationship in ways I could never explain.

SEE ALSO: They're Not Junkies, You're Just Uneducated

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

The amount of hurt and disappointment our family has gone through has brought us closer together. I have a relationship with Nanny and Pop that would never be as strong as it is today if you had been in the picture from day one. That in itself is a blessing.

Thank you for showing me how to love.

From your absence, I have learned how to love unconditionally. I want you to know that even though you weren't here, I love you most of all. No matter the amount of heartbreak, tears, and pain I've felt, you will always be my greatest love.

Thank you for making me strong.

Thank you for leaving and for showing me how to be independent. From you, I have learned that I do not need anyone else to prove to me that I am worthy of being loved. From you, I have learned that life is always hard, but you shouldn't give into the things that make you feel good for a short while, but should search for the real happiness in life.

Most of all, thank you for showing me how to turn my hurt into motivation.

I have learned that the cycle of addiction is not something that will continue into my life. You have hurt me more than anyone, but through that hurt, I have pushed myself to become the best version of myself.

Thank you for choosing the addiction over me because you've made me stronger, wiser, and loving than I ever could've been before.

5 Songs to Add to Your Playlist This Month

Spring into finals week (and the summer) by "cleaning up" your playlist

838
views

Here are some fun, fresh new tracks to check out as you finish out the rest of the school year and help you get out of your "music comfort zone!"

“Patience” by Tame Impala 

Genre: Electronic/Alternative

Tame Impala FINALLY released new music (!!), and this track is absolutely stunning. With frontrunner Kevin Parker staying on brand with the band's psychedelic, seemingly ethereal style, it sounds like a combination of 70s soft rock and waves of modern-day electronica, with Parker's voice drifting in and out in a kind of otherworldly, mellowed-out manner.

“Harmony Hall” by Vampire Weekend 

Genre: Alternative/Indie Pop

Vampire Weekend is also releasing an album, entitled "Father of the Bride", on May 3rd. From the looks of it, this track relates to the theme of marriage/weddings present in the album's title, and it is a fun, upbeat song that I have been listening to a lot in the morning as I'm getting ready for class! Ezra Koenig's voice is so unique and can cover a broad range, and I highly recommend listening to some of the band's other work as well ("Step" from their 2013 release "Modern Vampires of the City" is one of my all-time favorite songs!).

“Ready to Let Go” by Cage the Elephant 

Genre: Alternative/Alternative Rock

So many great artists are (finally) releasing new albums this year, and Cage the Elephant falls into this category. This track is an absolute banger and doesn't stray much from the band's style in that it includes a lot of loud guitar and dynamic vocals. Like Vampire Weekend, Cage the Elephant has been around since the early 2000s, and I highly recommend checking out some of their earlier work as well (big fan of their most recent album, actually!)

“Apple Orchard” by Beach House 

Genre: Indie/Electronic

Beach House is one of my favorite bands of all time, as I find a kind of an ethereal, beautiful sadness in the dreamy style of instrumentalist Alex Scally and lucid vocals of singer Victoria Legrand. This track is from their 2006 self-titled debut and is probably one of my favorite songs they've ever released. The lyrics are poetic and perfect for the post-finals enjoyment of spring weather, in that they preach relaxation and restfulness, and the song's electronic rhythms echo the essence of spring as well. If you like this song, then I highly recommend checking out the band's other albums as well (Depression Cherry is one of my favorite albums of all time).

“April Come She Will” by Simon & Garfunkel 

Genre: 60s Pop

No spring playlist is complete without a little Simon & Garfunkel! This song is a classic, its timeless, poetic lyrics capturing the epitome of the coming of spring and all its glory. In fact, I consider the entire album (entitled Sound of Silence) to be perfect for the pleasantness and feelings of renewal/natural revitalization associated with the coming months, so be sure to give it a listen if you haven't heard it before!
