Good Morning, Kittens! And Happy New Year! Hard to believe another year has come and gone, isn't it?
My New Year's Weekend was quite fun. On Thursday, I left work around 3 to board the Bolt Bus to NYC. The bus was full but traffic was light. We made really good time until we hit traffic at the Lincoln Tunnel. I disembarked around 9:30 or so and got to Jake's condo around 10. I was STARVING, so we went to a little Thai restaurant in his neighborhood. It was tasty. I had vegetarian crispy duck salad. I'm not normally a fan of fake meat made to taste like real meat, but this duck had the crispy texture it needed and a nice falvor. Hurrah.
Friday, Jake and I had lunch at Bread and, then, met David at Uni-Qlo. I was a little sad because Uni-Qlo had nothing for me. Waah. But, I perked up when we went to a bar for drinks. Yay. Drinks! David left, and Jake and I went back to his place to rest up for the crazy New Year's Eve party. We met up with David again around 8 at a yummy vegetarian restaurant (the name of which I can't remember). After dinner, we walked to David's friend's apartment and drank lots and lots and lots of champagne. Then, it was 2011. Yay.
Some of us may have been a little durnk. We got back to Jake's around 3, I think. Saturday consisted of blobbing around until we left to meet my friend, Min, for ramen noodles ... except the noodle restaurant was closed. Instead we went to a yummy Mexican restaurant, El Centro. Mmmm. Margaritas. After eating, we walked over to Posh for a quick cocktail. Then, back to Brooklyn for a little blobbing on the sofa.
Sunday, I got up early and packed my bag. Then, I said good-bye to Jake and left to meet David at the Market Cafe ... except it was closed (are you sensing a theme?). Instead we went to HK. Then, we went to the bus stop and waited for my bus. It was congested but the bus was close to on-time. I thought it would be packed, but I managed to get a seat to myself. Yay!
The bus got to DC around 5PM (a little behind schedule), I was home by 6:00 and in bed at 9.
And how was your New Year's? Chock full of fun and excitment?
Have a great day! *smooches*
