Head to the Brooklyn Museum A$AP Rocky because this exhibit is an absolute must. I’m going to be honest here, I don’t really get art. Yes, I was in complete awe when I saw Monet’s water lillies at L’Orangerie, but I’m equally as intrigued by the artful endeavor of a warm, crusty, half-baked Levain chocolate chip cookie. Okay, maybe not equal, but…actually, I don’t know.

The intake didn’t occur simultaneously (bourbon and dumplings), but come to think of it, a whiskey sour with veggie dumplings sounds kind of…not too shabby.

Anyways, life had come to the point where I almost had to eat my phone if another Mimi Cheng’s dumpling surfaced on Instagram. No need, I went with Jilly and attacked these kale, zucchini, mushroom and egg mighty veggie dumplings. Boom, off the list.
