it is an absolutely gorgeous day in nyc today. all of the funny "doorways" that most restaurants put on to avoid wintery drafts are gone, and outdoor seating is laid out in full force! 

there is nothing better than happy hour in the sun. here's one of my favorite places to grab a cocktail and a quick bite:

the mermaid inn on amsterdam between 87th and 88th. 

this spot is the complete package: $1 oysters, great cocktails, adorable decor, cute touches - i love the bowls of goldfish crackers on the bar and the fortune teller fish with your check (remember those?)

my picks: 
spritz cocktail (so i can pretend i'm back in campo in venezia!)
$1 oysters
old bay fries
brussels sprouts with bacon and marcona almonds (DO IT. it will change your life!) 

best wishes for a glorious weekend - i hope you spend some time outside!
