Red Hook, Brooklyn has some strange tropical moments.
• A few weeks ago, my cousin Paul was in town, so Jenn and I met up with he and two of his friends, Jane and Chrissy, to hang at Prospect Park, then Soda Bar over in Prospect Heights (good atmosphere, bad service) and then across the street to Zaytoons (great food and service, some of the best Mediterranean food in BK).
• Also a few weeks ago, I ended up meeting some friends of Mike Morarian’s at Katja’s going away party at the grossly-fratty, Spitzer’s, in my old neighborhood (the Lower), named Steve and Dave. We also checked out one of those dark, soul bars, and eventually wound up at the Parkside Lounge. Good times.
“Better red than dead.”
Earlier this year, upstate, NY.
I ended up getting some Mavic CXP22’s laced to Formula 32H hubs on my bike. While they look pretty similar to the stock wheels, they’re considered the strongest in their class.
South Slope/Sunset Park, Brooklyn. I moved a week and a half ago, and we’ve been getting adjusted to the new neighborhood daily. A big “thanks” goes out to D.Lish and Moses for aiding in the U-Haul move. Very cool.
• Jenn and I ended up running into F.Trainer over near the cemetery the other evening, and he had positive things to say about the area. He’s always doing good things (ie: the 1058 post).
• The Escape New York ride is right around the corner (Sept 20), but there’s still time to register. Could be good.
