My First Guests!
My wonderful friends Ted & Dave are here from Dayton. My first guests in my lovely loft. It is so good to see them. We hit the ground running bigtime. Mikey C texted me early in the morning, “You up?”
“Am now bastard.”
“Just checking.” So I called him. He was supposed to be booked all day, but his plans changed and he asked of Ted and Dave—who were going to be taking a cab to Brooklyn from the airport— “Wanna go get them?” Hee hee hee! Armed with Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, we picked them up at the airport and we took advantage of a fairly nice day (bad weather on the way) to eat at a yummy Carroll Gardens diner, walk around Brooklyn Heights, walk the Promenade, walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, walk to Ground Zero, walk walk walk, laughing all the way. Later that night—after long naps for everyone—we ate my beloved Olive Vine (ohh...I dream about their babaganouj...), then went to the Village to the Zinc Bar for fantastic Brazilian music and people watching. Best mojitos. In. The. World. I swear! A fun day. As much as I’ve loved living here, I found I loved it on a new level when I got to show some of my favorite places to friends.
