I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Me - Telltale Tours Flatiron, Food Architechture, and History Tour was fun. Most tours tell you that you should get there a little early, this tour you better get there a little early because if you get there exactly on time, the tour may be started already .I have never been on a tour that included architecture before. It was interesting learning about different styles of buildings.  The portions of food on this tour were a lot bigger than on most food tours. On most tours, you taste a bunch of tiny things. On this tour, we tasted a few big things.The first place we went to was Eataly. They had a lot of different areas with different foods. Some of them looked really good, and I would have liked to try them. We had this really good tasting bread. It had strawberries on top. Even though  I like strawberries, I don't like it on my bread, but the bread was delicious. Then, we went to a sandwich shop and had reuben sandwiches. I had never had a reuben sandwich before. It is not my favorite, but it was better than I expected. At a different restaurant, we got to try a couple cheeses and then had grilled cheese sandwiches. The cheese was good, but the sandwich was disappointing because I prefer regular American cheese on my grilled cheese sandwiches. At another place, we had chocolate ruggala and a little bit of chocolate chip cookie. I really liked the cookie. On the whole, this tour was interesting and informative.


Mom - Telltale Tours Flatiron, Food Architecture, and History Tour is a very unique tour. First of all. it is confined to a very specific area within about a ten block radius so although you will be doing a lot of walking you may not have to do as much walking as on some other tours. The guides are very knowledgable and informative. however, so you will learn quite a lot about that particular area. Also, although there are not that many food stops, the food portions are very generous. Also, at least half of the food stops are sit down stops so there is plenty of time to rest on the tour. You will visit Eataly. the Eisenberg sandwhich shop, Beechers, and Breads Bakery. You will get to sample bread,  cheese, a reuben sandwhich, a grilled cheese sandwhich and some delicious desserts. In addition to all the food stops, you will also visit and learn about a number of historic locations including the famous Flatiron Building, Madison Square Park,Union Square and more.  All in all, Telltale Tours Flatiron, Food, Architecture and History Tour  is a tour at that will both satisfy your quest for knowledge about the Flatiron area and fill your belly.
