NYC

Filed under: Winter @ 12:07 am and

In keeping with our recent road trip hobby, Nick, Jason and I hopped in the car at 3 p.m. on Saturday and drove to New York City. While nothing is close to Ithaca, nothing is too far away, including a bunch of fun cities. The reason we took the trip was that Jason’s parents were staying at the Carlton in Midtown for the night since in the morning they planned on going apartment shopping for Jason next year. And yes, that is buying an apartment for him to live in…

We had dinner with them at the hotel restaurant, exchanged some funny stories with his parents and Jason’s dad told us a few off color jokes. After that we went down to Soho to meet up with a Cornell alum who was in Nick and Jason’s fraternity. Spent some time there, then came back to the Greenwich Village and hit up a few more establishments. It was a pretty fun night; me and Nick stayed over at his parents’ apartment at NYU. They are actually faculty in residence at NYU Law School although I think they usually stay at home in Massachusetts. It’s all very confusing to me, but either way we had an empty apartment to stay in.

I had lunch with an old friend today which was a lot of fun and then me and Nick walked around Chinatown shopping for fake Louis Vuitton briefcases (we didn’t find any, unfortunately.) Met up with Jason and drove back home.

I’ve had a lot of fun this week in general – have been going out quite a bit with the guys I live with. We went to a place on Wednesday night called the Crooked Board. It is over in Slaterville Springs (15 min. drive) and is famous for all you can eat wings, best flavor – garbage (all the flavors at once.) Thursday night we headed down to Ithaca College stomping grounds where I saw a kid I went to high school with and we watched a great cover band. It has been nice not having too much work pile up yet. We will see if that continues through the semester…

This would be soooo much cooler to carry to class than my North Face back pack…
