Little Italy, Night 1

 We had dinner the first night with our next door neighbors from home.  We've had a couple of near misses with them on vacations.  We were actually in Bermuda at the same time (them on a cruise) and didn't realize it until afterward.  This time Alana and Matt had talked about it.  On our ride home one day we all talked about it (Matt, Alana, and I) and decided it would be fun to see each other outside of our usual zone.
 Matt and Alana have grown up next to each other.  They are like brother and sister and we love Jerome and Colleen.  We met at Cafe' Napoli in Little Italy where we'd eaten before.
 After several texts back and forth with Ron at home, he remembered that it was Ferrara's that had the good cannoli.  Ron and I are kind of connoisseurs of cannoli.  Well, not kinda, we are professional cannoli tasters.  And Ferrara's came through-they were good.  I did have one at another place (no, didn't get the name, dur) the next day and it was even better.  It's a thang I gotta do in NY (or anywhere else).  
Ferrara's had the cutest and, I'm sure, the tastiest Easter baskets.  They were just fun to look at too.  It was a fun night.
