AKA The First Time I Spent a Questionable Amount of Money on Drinks
cinematic film: Jimin Day in NYC
[ OCTOBER 13, 2020 ]
After debating for 24 hours, I ultimately made the decision to go cup sleeve hunting for Jimin’s birthday.
I planned on going to five cafes but ultimately ended up going to four cafes and this was the first time I have dedicated an entire day hunting for cup sleeves in NYC.
I had to make a quick stop at HMart on 32nd Street to find the BTS edition iced americanos.
LOVUE had a cool event for ARMY and had little tiny Jimin’s posted around the store.
I was super excited to go to Matcha n’ More. As a big fan of matcha, I considered it a rite of passage and this was the day I would get a drink from this cafe.
That was until I arrived in Lower Manhattan only to see the line for Matcha n’ More extend down the block. I heard from others that the wait was about 90 minutes, but after waiting that long at Caffe Bene I couldn’t do it again.
Drink: Orange Lemonade
Drink: Hot Tea
I waited about 90 minutes in line, but it was worth it because there were a couple of army giving out freebies and the cafe was playing BTS songs. The time went by fast. This was also my first time having a chocolate cafe drink. I had to do it for Jimin.
Oh and the fried dumplings? *chef’s kiss*
Drink: Iced Tea
Thank you to all of the people that organized each event. Your hard work made this day very memorable and fun!
