Just the bullet today.
Yesterday walked around Battery City Park with A. Discovered a decent espresso bar… dark though; so it will be a regular place when the weather turns colder. Anyway, walked down Broadway to Bowling Green Park and sat for a while until a pigeon crapped on her.
Came home to change, turned on the TV and saw the last two minutes of the first half of UW vs. USC. Tied at 10 a piece.
I went out to meet J and C at the Standard Hotel, up in the Meat Packing District, where there doesn’t seem to be much actual meat. E showed up later; we caught up. There was a marching band.
Walked around the Meat Packing district; Tortilla Flats (a nostalgic place for J and C) and Pastis (J’s favorite brunch). Dinner was at Barbuto. Afterwards, wandered around some more, trying to have a nice drink at on outdoor table…
J got a text early in the evening that the Huskies had won that game against #3 USC, after going winless last season. I’m pretty sure UW’s success is due to my return to the United States.
