On Saturday Becca and I set off to take Time Out New York’s “Cute Walk.” A 2.4 mile walk through the city that includes stops at puppy stores, toy stores, and candy stores? Sounded like a great time to us.

Before we began, we met at a Cuban restaurant for brunch that had free unlimited sangria with your meal.
Becca indulged while I took one sip and tried not to vomit as I nursed my hangover. The food was delicious though!

Then we started the cute walk. We started off a little shaky, getting lost for a while, but finally found our first destination: Papabubble candy shop. They make their own hard candy there, and we sampled some before moving onto our next destination.

Afterall, the candy was yummy, but puppies were waiting…

Then we went to Animal Haven. We looked at a bunch of adorable puppies and played with one that loved to bite us. It even bit me in the chin, which I wasn’t sure was possible, but apparently it is. But we forgave her for physically assaulting us, because SHE WAS SO CUTE.

Her sister also watched on as we played:

After we were done filling out the papers to adopt the puppy (just kidding!) we moved on to Pylones, a colorful gift shop that had toys, office supplies, books, and other cool gadgets and knick knacks. I picked up a wind up panda bear for my brother and we moved on to our next stop …

KIDROBOT. Here's a place that has lots of "designer" toys, it's pretty cool. Bec posed with a mustached stuffed animal before we moved on to...

LE PETIT PUPPY! Which contained, yep you guessed it, small puppies. There were a couple puppies out to play with, baby Jack Russell Terriers that were only 9 weeks old. They were roughly the size of gerbils which I found both weird and adorable at the same time. We also gave some shout out love to a cute weinerdog puppy who really just wanted to come out of his cage and say hello to us. But alas, time was of the essence. So we went down the street to Parrots & Pups and saw even more puppies. Our time was running low, however, since we had tickets to A CUTE MOVIE, so we skipped a few stops on our walk and headed right for the last stop…

Magnolia Bakery! The line stretched out the door, but it didn’t take too long for us to get inside and get our hands on yummy treats. Then we kind of had to book it to the movie theater, since our cute walk was taking a cute long time. So we hopped in a cab and Bec enjoyed her wonderful cupcake.

We arrived at the theater just in time to meet Amy D for the start of our cute movie - BABIES! Which was adorable and, dare I say it… cute. My favorite baby was the one from Nambia, but they were all pretty darn sweet.

After the movie, we got some mac and cheese at SMAC, and that concluded our day of cute.

If anyone else would like to indulge on the Cute Walk, you can find all the stops and their addresses here. It’s a great way to spend a summer afternoon!
