Dinosaurs vs. butterflies

My friend Renée was visiting yesterday from Indianapolis, so I took off work and we did the museum thing. We hit the Met and the Natural History Museum both in the same day, including the butterfly garden temporarily on view at Natural History. Renée is a dinosaur buff, so after seeing the dinos at Natural History we went uptown to Dinosaur BBQ for dinner with some friends.

To kill an hour between when the museum closed and when we had to be at Dinosaur, we stopped for tea at Alice’s Tea Room on W 73rd. The tea and scones were excellent, but the place takes the Alice-in-Wonderland thing a little too far. Renée called the glittery butterflies painted on the walls “too girly.”

Dinosaurs vs. butterflies: Dinosaurs win!
