Day together

It was my husband's birthday recently. I planned a Saturday together in the city and gave him these drawings throughout the day to give him clues about each destination.


---> Breakfast at Shopsin's (slutty cakes = pumpkin pancakes with pistachios and peanut butter)


---> Baldessari exhibit at the Met (this is one of my favorite pieces)


---> Amazing sandwiches for lunch here. (My poor sketch is supposed to be a slice of salami. Abe thought we were eating pizza.)


---> Shopping for a new down jacket


--> Dinner and cocktails at Freeman's


--> A movie


--> Tea and dessert at Spot at St. Mark's Place

I am stealing your idea. Thank you very much. I can't stop drawing on my little cards. It's been so long since I drew something for him from scratch. I love it and can't stop doing it.
