Union Square, Chocolate and Nordstrom

Of all the great shopping in NYC, there has never been a Nordstrom. I always couldn't understand why not as they are such a great store. Their customer service is second to none and I would tell anyone to shop there. They totally stand behind their products, whether you bought it yesterday or a year ago. They are finally opening a store in the city, but best of all, it is a Nordstrom Rack. I always find great sales on their website and now they will be in NYC. This May 11(mark your calendars), location at 60 East 14th Street at Broadway, Union Square, there will be 3,000 pairs of premium jeans, 25,000 pairs of shoes (did you know Nordstrom started out as a shoe store?) and 8,000 handbags on sale at 50 to 60% off. God loves us.  
here is the sign in the park with all the rules....
the park is really nice and it can get very crowded on week-ends
they have the famous green market as well as vendors and performers 

they also have Max Brenner Chocolate by the Bald Man
really neat place, they do have food this was a chicken panini 
  the presentation is excellent and these onion rings had a cocoa dipping sauce  


               yes you read this correctly, what a great gift to bring home


these looked so tasty
     a thin french crepe stuffed with chocolate chunks and peanut butter. Served with Dulce de Leche ice creme, toffee banannas, warm toffee caramel


chocolate pizza is also available
