Treat Yo’ Self: #kidulting
October 10, 2017
Every once in a while invite your inner child to come out and play. We’ve rounded up five must-dos this month that will be sure to bring a sense of nostalgia and recreate childhood memories.
Creamline: Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup – $8.50
Melted cheese, grilled bread, and flavorful tomato soup come together to bring you right back to a simpler time before emails, DMs and annoying coworkers. This comforting staple is reimagined with the highest-quality ingredients used to make this delicious American classic. Dip the cheesy grilled cheese sandwich into the tomato soup for a taste of childhood!
The Lately: Wednesday Night Cabin Fever
What better way to merge your inner kid and your current adult life than with board games and alcohol? The weekly hangout at The Lately allows you to chill out, and play board games both old-school and new (like Shooters and Ladders), while enjoying draft beer pitchers, punch buckets and wine.
Ample Hills Ice Cream: Cones and cups – $2.75 to $8.25, depending size
Located just steps away from the Whitney Museum, there is ice cream that can rival Ben & Jerry’s and that is Ample Hills. The flavors are playful, creative, and always yummy. From homemade peppermint patties to honeycomb candy and marshmallow-infused ice cream to munchie mix and brownies; everything is made in-house with the best ingredients. Any flavor will make you feel like a kid again. Our favorite is the Snap Mallow Pop, which tastes exactly like a Rice Krispie treat.
Michael Angelo’s Wonderland Beauty Parlor: Manicure with Nail Art – Manicures starting at $22
Fun, crazy nail colors and art have gotten lost as we’ve grown up. Michael Angleo’s manicure’s brings back the fun of a delightful manicure allowing for artistic expressions ranging from airbrushed graffiti and the 40’s style “Moon” manicure to rhinestones and glittered parties on your nails. Extensions and adornments are created with nail-strengthening gels that last up to a month, which gives you plenty of time to show them off.
