Wild scoops 

It doesn’t matter what the temperature is outside Alaskans love their ice cream… it’s true.  I personally am having a torrid affair with Wild Scoops…. their scoop shop opened downtown this summer and it is less than 2 blocks from the Boardroom where kerry Quade creative’s Alaskan Outpost is located… yikes!  The scoop shop is on a little hiatus for November but they were sure to let us all know that the test kitchen is up and running and stocking the freezers around town. It looks like I’ll be making a stop at La Bodega ( like that wasn’t happening anyway… )

oh, that is the blueberry in the photo… the color, I know right?!


Jen arrived for a conference in NYC… and The Archer Hotel was the perfect place to catch up over a bite to eat and some bubbles!  The hotel was in a perfect midtown location and the rooms were well appointed.  The staff was welcoming but not in that fake I work in hospitality way and of course they were all super hip.  We stayed a couple of nights soaking up the view from their rooftop bar known as Spyglass and catching up before out next meet up in Alaska… all in all a great way to wind down my time in the city. Food, Drinks, Accomodations and time with a dear friend… all FIVE STARS.
