Here we are, at the end of a long, action-packed three-day weekend. Jen and I spent Friday through Sunday in New York City, running from party to party and park to park.

After waking up at 6:30am Friday morning, working full days, and traveling by auto and train to Grand Central, we met up with Karen and Joti in Brooklyn before cruising on over to Zach’s party, attended by a number of Vassar alums, including a few friends I hadn’t seen since graduation. We stayed out till about 2 or 3 or so.

Saturday some more friends came over and we had a picnic in Prospect Park before preparing for the party at Karen and Joti’s that night. Another night of fun and debauchery, with a special late-night appearance by Dan. (I’m glad we finally managed to hang out after so many failed attempts both in the city and here in Saratoga.)

Sunday after breakfast from Bergen’s Bagels, Jen and I boarded the 7th Ave. subway in Brooklyn and high-tailed it for the island of Manhattan. We emerged from the underground at the 14th St. stop at Union Square, where we rendezvoused with Heather and Saahil, jumped in a cab, and had some dim sum at the ridiculously good and shockingly cheap (less than $6 per person) Harmony Palace Restaurant in Chinatown (92 Mott St. at Canal). We relaxed the afternoon away in Washington Square Park (where a band played, one man swallowed fire, and another man gave out free hugs).

We capped off this banner Memorial Day Weekend by going furniture shopping today and putting a down payment on our first-ever grown-up furniture (the kind that we won’t have to build ourselves and is part of a big collection from which we can pick other pieces to add to our house over time). We’re very excited about our first three pieces.

    Dude, next time you’re in Brooklyn (especially Prospect Park!), let me know! Oh well, I’ll be seeing you this weekend anyway.
