Here’s all the July stuff that wasn’t Mom and Dad visiting.
July 10th: Went to hear one of the Central Park Summer Classic Concerts, except this summer the Central Park concerts aren’t in the park but in Temple Emanu-El, which is gigantic and beautiful. (Also I didn’t go to the park by accident, I walked through it to get to the show). OH and in this picture of the jogger tunnel I’m pretty sure that’s my friend Corrine jogging by in the green.
July 12: Jake and Natalie were in town and they helped me discover my new burger passion—the crispy cheese smashburger at the Usual. I’ve been 4 times since and I think I’m finally reaching satisfaction levels.
July 13: went down to midtown for Go Go Curry. The blackout happened. Walked to 116th street. Did not take enough photos. But check out these two at the end where you can see the line in the middle of the block between 71st and 72nd street where there was power and there wasn’t power.
July 16: Went out to El Cortez in Bushwick for a comedy show I had a good feeling about. This would be the second time this year that I went to a comedy show with nearly no audience at all, besides me.
July 21: Happy Birthday to Festus!
July 24: Went back to the Usual with Greg and Ned because I was fiending for those crispy cheese cheeseburgers and the madras mustard for the fries. Asked Ned to take a picture of Greg and I, had a lot of auto focus fails and tests. Was it human error? I’ll never say!
And now, for an unexpected grand finale, a day at the Delaware State Fair with Maggie and Carol (a.k.a. “Two Moms”!)—I’d never been to a state fair and would you believe these are only pics from the first couple hours because I totally drained my battery that quickly? (And, er, the backup battery wasn’t charged?) I’ll never make a mistake like this again! <—(referring to not charging batteries, NOT going to fairs).
