Our usual early morning drop off of Fred at my parents went off without a hitch! Unfortunately, the drive to Brooklyn had us searching for a car wash because a car splashed mine with some roadkill.
We arrived at Five Points Fest and made our way inside without a wait. We checked out the outside area first. We watched some live painting, looked at merchandise, and enjoyed some lunch from Korilla food truck.
Inside we visited a variety of stalls including Martian Toys. Both Greg and I ended up coming home with a bunch of blank vinyl toys to customize.

Our next stop was to check into our usual spot in NYC the Millenium One UN by Hilton. Our 1 bedroom suite was large, clean, and offered a great view. This hotel is consistently good! We have never had a problem with the staff, valet, or rooms!
After our long car rides we wanted to get out and stretch our legs so we walked around a while and popped into Grand Central Terminal. We stopped at STK (a restaurant we previously enjoyed in Orlando) for some cocktails and small bites.
We knew going into the trip we wanted to keep things casual since we had been traveling so much. With that in mind we opted to go to Momosan for sake, crispy pig ears and ramen. I don't know if it was because it was a weekend, a bad batch or what but I wasn't thrilled that the noodles appeared to be shortened in length or cut. I missed being able to have a good slurp!
