I had a chance to be a kid again with some friends at the Bronx Zoo’s night light show last night. We baked marshmallows, rode the Carousel and snuck off the beaten path with flashlight in hand to visit the Birds of Prey. The big white owl and the vulture scarred the heck out of me and it definitely felt like we invaded on their turf.
Afterward, we landed at Marios on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. The best Baked Ziti (with added Ricotta) I have ever tasted. The red cabernet savignon which was the suggested wine by the waiter “Giacomo” was so very delicious and tops my list thus far. Just have to get the name. The cappucino, which I was graciously given the service of having mine stirred personally by Giacomo, was served very fancy.
