Lots of Museums, Not That Much Food

All right, let's get caught up on some mid-March to mid-April stuff...

For starters, there was this one Saturday when the Homers were in town and we had a dang good time.


One Monday night my friend/bishop Jeff gave a tour of Grand Central because he was being certified as an official Grand Central tour guide. Thanks to this tour I can now point out 4 or 5 things you might not know about the terminal AND I know the way up to the tennis court. (Did you know there's a Grand Central tennis court?!)

There's this eighty year old Spanish restaurant in Chelsea called El Quijote that was being closed down to get turned into something a little more flashy and up to date, so I went to have lunch there to see what it was all about while I still could. Conclusion: Very extremely old school, and very charming in that sense. Food was fine, they gave me a gigantic pot of mussels for fifteen bucks. But, all in all, more of a place that you're glad exists than a place you go to very often. Or more often than once. Or I don't know, probably would've been a party to go there with a gang of homies.

After lunch I went up to the Met to visit Joan

Another day I found myself over by the Daily News building so I dipped in and had a look at the globe for the first time in a while


Easter morning walk through Inwood Hill Park (the part without a hill)

Then, on a Friday, a little West Village, a little Whitney Museum.

The next day, a little Soho time. There was a big crowd having their Nikes marbelized.

One night/day I decided to get out my 50mm f/1.1 and practice with it a little before taking it to Michael's birthday party

And at the end of the week I took my 50mm f/2.0 to work and Brooklyn Bridge Park (and also saw Patricia)

And then, Saturday April 14th, the sun came out and it was nice for the first time. Headed down to the Chelsea galleries from my neighborhood.

And that's a bunch of museums and barely any food, just like I told you it would be!
