Indian food at Panna II

Tonight we went to an Indian restaurant in east village on 1st ave and 6th street called Panna II.  When we arrived, there were three other restaurants around it all with very similar names trying to capitalize off of the success of the original restaurant (the one we went to).  It was a really small and crowded restaurant on the second floor of the building.  The food was pretty good, each dish costing less than $10, and the service was prompt. The thing that set it apart from others was that it had tons of lights hanging from the ceiling,  literally thousands of lights.  It was like nothing I've ever seen before.

The coolest apple store ever

So after ice skating in central park, we decided to check out the nearby Apple store. This store, on 5th avenue and 59th street, is the flagship store, which I've wanted to visit since moving to new york for college. The entrance is a giant glass cube with their logo floating inside of if. Inside the cube is a giant glass staircase and glass elevator that takes you down to the store, which is huge. The store is also open 24 hours a day, never closing in the city that never sleeps. nbd.

Pictures really aren't able to capture how cool this store is.

Ice skating in central park

So last night, nyu rented out woolman rink in central park for it's students to use at night. We took a double decker bus from the nyu campus in greenwich village up 6th avenue to central park near midtown. When we got there we could see parts of the ny skyline from the rink, which was unreal. While we had to wait in a few lines to get there and then get skate rentals, it was definitley worth it.
