This Sunday I had the pleasure of tagging along on a Sex and the City tour across Manhattan!

With the second movie hot the horizon, it was fabulous reliving moments from the series and first movie at various SATC hotspots, such as:

  • The Plaza (which the tour guide says has a very nice bathroom), where Big and Natasha held their engagement party.
  • Buddakan, where Big and Carrie had their BETTER engagement party
  • Where Samantha hit on a priest
  • The Soho House
  • The Pleasure Chest, where Charlotte purchased her first sex toy
  • Onieal's Grand Street Bar & Restaurant, AKA, Aiden’s bar Scout. You get out here and have a round of cosmos!
  • Where Samantha feel into a hole

The church where Samantha tried to seduce a priest. She failed.

While this 3 and 1/2 hour tour was a blast, I imagine it was a little more exciting for the non-NYC residents on the bus, which hailed from Ireland to Saudi Arabia (really?!). I mean, a Magnolia cupcake “on the bus” is fabulous, but I imagine it’s a more delicious and exotic if you’re from Scotland. There happens to be regular Magnolias around my office weekly (just sayin’).
