Hey my friends! I've been so enjoying my time in New York City and last night's meet-up was amazing!

The first part of my day yesterday was spent exploring the shops and sights at the Winter Garden and inside The Oculus again. It's such a breathtaking area and then you can step out the doors to the waterfront and watch all of the boats.

We grabbed some brunch there before doing some shopping and then headed to the meet-up. The meet-up was such an amazing opportunity to hang out and get to know some of my virtual friends and meet new ones.

@trumpit, @mamaloves, @noboxes, and I had such a great time. We got to meet @wa7, @jimmylin, @r3mr3m, @seacactus (major shout out to them for setting it up!) I met @classicktv, @alphasteem, @waybeyondpadthai, and @paolajane. Oh and my friends @hansikhouse and @voronoi from @sndbox showed up, along with @andrarchy and so many more. So great to see and meet all of them.




After the meet-up we went out for a very late dinner and it was super delish! I can't wait to see what the next days of my trip bring, but it's hard to imagine anything beating this one. I know videos haven't been my forte but this event definitely helped inspire me to get more into them so I'll be working on including lots in the future.




As always, I can't wait to share my next post. Have an amazing weekend!


ALL CONTENT IS MINE AND ORIGINAL! All of these food photos were taken with my Nikon D750 and my favorite Lens, the Nikon AF-S FX NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G. You can find out more in my INTRO POST.

And, by the way, to all the minnows out there, my intro post did a huge $0.21. The key to success on Steemit is to be consistent and persistent. Click on the link below for some great tutorials on how you can also succeed on the steem blockchain:

it was awesome to meet you @waybeyondpadthai! You are so full of energy and excitement, so cool.

Wow so cool in New York @gringalicious ! You are definitely going places and I am so happy to see how far you have come here on Steemit, way to go, I wish I was there! some day I need to get a passport and more money Lol!! Never stop steeming on my friend!💕💕💕💁upped and resteemed, will do the same in my @momskitchen blog, I loved your post!💕💕💕
This year is going to be fabulous For Steemit!

as always, thanks so much for all of your support, Karen

Your welcome ! You might want to check out an awesome Whole Wheat Cranberry Loaf post I did earlier in @momskitchen , I know how much you love cranberries @gringalicious Thanks for your kind reply!💕✌

Glad to meet you and your family there!

I was so good to have met you as well and then to see you at the food fest, that was so cool

thanks you for sharing this

Awesome people having awesome time! Nice one!

Thank you @edgarsart!

Yes very cool! Thanks for using dlive! And glad to see your dlive upvote was the biggest one, your upvotes pretty much with just $113 in bidbots votes, so youre really showing it is possible to not have to totally rely on paid upvotes, and its really nice to see and THANK YOU for telling minnows how your first post only made 21 cents, maybe we should bring that up from the blockchain and make a little thumbnail image from it to make it a reoccuring thing toi show everyone at the end of your posts to show minnows :)

Duuuude you should keep Dliving and never stop and you may as well start making a Youtube show that can REALLY bring people in where you just go over your steem posts live on youtube and let people signup and make comments nd upvote them live , yoi uess you can do that on dlive as well, anyway, you will have a a whole Steem Travel NETWORK one day with multiple people making content to fill 24 hour time slot, think of it, you could have a whole direct TV channel!

Anyway youre blog is great keep it up and youll end up with your own Community when that hivemind thing comes out soon :)

wow, great commenting. Yeah, my own direct TV channel, who knows, the possibilities are endless

And yeah, a thumbnail of that $0.21 intro post would be great, thanks for the suggestion

You're in NYC too?! So cool you had this meet up. I actually am here in Manhattan for 8 days. I'm staying with a friend on W 43rd st. Is there any other meet up you all are doing? Please keep me in the loop. I'd love to meet fellow Steemians in person :)

Great work sir! As always. Thanks for your content.

Congrats, you made the #steemitminute for today!

I don't know of any other meetups, there probably are some. That would be a great project for someone, organizing meetup announcements on the steem blockchain. I travel home late tomorrow

Discord DM soon as you get a minute @gringalicious

Very cool and great pics! Thanks for sharing!!

Love the contrast in the photos

do whatever you can to make it to meetups, they are always worth it

Great advice! I read that it was about 1,500. A little out of my range for a night out right now.

Hey! @gringalicious. I would like to borrow one of your meet-up pictures...

Oh my gosh! This looks like a Great night and a Great group of people. Also, your pictures made me miss NYC!

there's nothing like NYC, that is for sure. It was a great night with great people. It is always so inspiring to attend meetups. As always, thanks so much for all of the support @susanne

Looks like a great meet-up! Shame we couldn't be there and there's no excuses as we know @waybeyondpadthai travelled all the way from Thailand to be at the meet-up. Still there will be another time 😊 Great to see all these lovely photos!

Guyssss if it really happens to be in BKK next time, I would scream out loud (yes, 'screaming' itself is already loud but I mean.. English is not my first language LOLOLOL hahah) Wish you guys made it together! The team was funny as f* LOL hahaha love them - Next time Sam / Becca ! ;)

Hahaha we are sure you would scream even louder than a scream (is that possible?)! Well, if it is in BKK next time we would definitely attend! Hopefully, we are still around LOL, these things usually happen to us hahaha. Enjoy your last days in NY and see you back in Bangkok soon :)

Great capture😜Thanks for your awesome photo gallery 😁

You are looking so gorgeous and nice place with delicious foods. Canada is beautiful place and victoria also looks neat and clean. I hope you enjoyed lots with your new virtual friends. Thank you so much for your article as well nice photos.

It must be amazing to meet all of these amazing steemians especially in New York.
Love the pictures since I have never been there.

It really is quite a place, although it's certainly different from the country. So busy at all times. Thanks for taking the time to comment @joalvarez!

Oh wow!!! You got to go!!!
I wish I got to make it out there!!

Hey @acromott, so good to hear from you! I wish you could have come too, but hopefully I'll see you at the next steemfest. Hope you're having a great weekend!

These tour pics are amazing and i love tourism and will go for my dream tour next month with my gf.

A very beautiful moment for a perfect journey.@gringalicious

Love the awesome photos <3 :)

It looks like you had a blast. I have still not had a meetup yet, but am hopeful. I am hoping when I am in London that I'll get to do a few.

NYC is great and in the Springtime is such a good time to go. I hope you walked central park with all the trees budding and flowers beginning to grow.

I was able to take a carriage ride through Central Park, it was a lot of fun. It was after sunset so my pics are not that great. Great commenting @donnadavisart

Very Funny and nice pictures ❤️

Lovely meet up, I am glad you enjoyed your time spent there... I would have liked to be there with you. Hugs for you!
