After a brief respite at the hotel, we went up to Grand Central for a "snack" at the Oyster Bar (no pix). Oysters (YUM!) and NE Clam Chowder (liked The Lobster Place's better).
Then, when wandering around looking for my subway entrance (we were parting ways -- I was heading to upper west side to visit with Kim Lewis + family, Severo had rehearsal in Jersey) we saw a sign for Magnolia Bakery. Cupcake alert!!
