Karen’s Birthday

Tuesday, March 28th, 2006 · 1 Comment

We hit Brooklyn over the weekend for a fun birthday dinner party at Karen and Joti’s place. The lasagne and other culinary delights were delicious, and the wine flowed a’plenty.

While driving around Brooklyn and into and out of the city, Jen and I were amazed by how terrible the roads are there. Driving down Flatbush is like a carnival ride, bumping from side to side, to and fro. On one bridge (the Triboro?), you can actually see portions of the steel grating of the bridge beneath where the road is literally falling apart. NYC has its own special tax. Where is that tax money going, if not into infrastructure? So it was really no surprise when I saw this story yesterday (thanks, Sarah, for the link):

In other news, it’s finally starting to feel like spring here in Saratoga Springs. Yesterday I rode my bike into town, drove with the windows down, and started the task of raking up all the leaves and branches and other winter debris (front yard only so far). It was 60 degrees at one point, as the dogs and I soaked up the sun in the back yard.

    Good food, what looks like good wine and a bevy of good looking women! Everything needed for the making of a great party. Oh! Good looking men too of course.
