Now that I have a few minutes, I can finally recap the weekends wild and fabulous events. Friday night, Jennifer and I rolled into the city with Dave and Ginny and hit the East Village for dinner and then drinks at the ever-popular Rivertown. The crazy dude with the white hair at the door even liked my scarf. 🙂 After a great night’s sleep and a nectar Broadway Diner breakfast, it was back into the city to 60 Thompson for the evening’s extravaganza. I have to say that while my road rage almost got the best of me while navigating the downtown Manhattan streets, I was in wonderful spirits by the time we began getting ready for the par-tay. I have to say that my date looked even more fabulous than myself (if anyone thought that possible), and the rest of the guests at the party looked pretty good too.
As per the party….Lo and Lorilo were both as beautiful as ever….great wine and mohjitos (I can never spell that drink) flowed like water….nectar eats were all around; salmon tar-tar…omg. Anyway….even though there were some slight music mishaps, Lo kept us entertained with his acapella Lionel and “Green Aligator” song. Schwartz impressed me with his touching speech, and Slerm and Nukes kept Jen and myself entertained with their hillarious selves. Overall, it was just great seeing everyone together all dressed up and in good spirits. I had a wonderful time.
Sunday was another fantastic day. Sleeping in at the awesome 60 Thompson…..one of the best night’s sleeps I have ever had. 😉 We had brunch at this crazy little place in Soho where the people seemed rude at first until we realized it was just the character of the joint. One dude rolled by the table, did a double take, looked over with a puzzled look and said, “you guys feel like ordering something, or something?” He then dug a pad and pencil out of one of his pockets and took it down. I had a Basque Omlette. Can you dig it? Then it was time for walking about and shopping in Soho. That neighborhood just rocks on a Sunday afternoon…especially with weather like that. By the time we got back to Bayonne, I was clobbered with exhaustion. A quick nap and it was back on the road to Washington….dinner at the Cactus Cantina and then bed.
It was the next morning that I noticed a wet spot on the rug and called maintenance to find out that the hot water heater had leaked in the apartment in Virginia. So…I was moved into another apartment for a couple days, although I can report that repairs have completed and I can go back there tonight. 🙂
Last night, Jennifer cooked an awesome dinner for her lovely roommate Rita’s birthday, and I was able to meet a bunch of their friends while taking in alot of great food and wine. All in all, an incredible beginning to a new week (or an awesome end to a great weekend). All I know is that there is no way that this little blog can do it justice.
Congratulations once more, Lo and Lori. The two of you deserve the best.
