Bestie Brunch: What A Mistake!

So my best friend, Nicole aka EmpressNic made an impromptu visit to New York.

If you follow her on IG: eventsbyempressnic or talkingwithempressnic you already know she is  #BronxBred so NYC is HOME for her.

So needless to say, I was elated to see her. 

She hoped the late night china bus from Charlotte to NYC.

My wheels were turning because I know our time was semi limited..

I headed out to meet her and guess what the F train was on some BS.

NO WEEKEND TRAINS!!!

So I hoped a cab to scoop her.

In the cab, I decided we going to a #BestieBrunch.

I know ya'll like that... #BestieBrunch

I had a place in mind but I said let me go to my 'Ole Faithful and flex.

I'm going to try somewhere different.

I came across a fairly decent review of Bubby's Tribeca.

When we arrived on Hudson Street..Nicole immediately looked at me like:

"Heffer, it's too cold out here to be lost"...lol

There was an boarded up building with the same address on it.

Right next door, Bubbly awaited us.

We walked in and was greeted by a super bubbly Host.

Mind you, I was  bundled up like I was about to rob the joint.

You know, Nic was fashionably cute..

She proceeded to sit us at this small table.

So small she had to pull it all the way out for me to sit down.

I'm not fat-well with all the layers and bags I had.

She may have thought I was a FATTY...

We were so cramped!!

The couple next to us close enough to hear me be me.

We ordered drinks...

Me, #BloodRedOrange #Mimosa

(no unlimited mimosa, either)

Nicole: Coffee

I asked the waiter could we MOVE?

He said let me see if that's ok?

**Blank Stare**

He immediately came back and said: We were APPROVED TO MOVE!

I also asked him "could he charge my phone?"

I know he hated me...

We begin to move our seat....

Across the way, right by a nice piece of art.

We got settled & sat down...

Our waiter flies over and says...Ummm, you can't sit here..

It's a table for 4.

Mind you, two chairs are full of our bags, jackets and such.

He said you have to move over there.....

Table for 2.

**MUSICAL CHAIRS***

We move and I'm annoyed as hell..

Now it's time to order..

Of course, Nicole keeps it cute and healthy.

She orders an OMELET.

#Greedyboots gets the ABE LINCOLN SPECIAL..

I dug Abraham Lincoln and felt it was only right.

Our food came in a timely fashion...

My food covered the whole table.

Nicole laughed cause I was like what's all this sh*t.

It came with Pancakes, grits, eggs and sausage.

Pancakes: Nasty

Eggs: Funny tasting

Sausage: didn't touch cause I don't eat PORK

Grits: ON POINT

Oh yeah I had caramelized bananas. YUMMY!

All of this came to about $82.

I told Nicole, "I could take you around the way to Papi and 'em.

They wouldn't of did us like this. 

Needless to say, Bestie Brunch was a MISTAKE!

Sorry for the lack of pictures-Bubby's Tribeca didn't win me ova..

We were actually rushed out after eating...SMH
