Geez, time really flies. Only 2 more weeks left until I get to go home to my cats. (I go away and all I can think about is going back to my cats.)
Did I relay what happened after I went to wd-50? No?
After wd-50, we ended up walking around LES for a while until we managed to wander to St. Marks again. We wandered down the street, looking for a place to go to the bathroom at. I can’t remember where we finally were able to relieve ourselves, but somehow a couple tattoo parlors caught my eye. Next thing I know, I’m in the chair getting one. Then after that I find myself in the hookah bar next door sitting around smoking gauva and some other hookah flavor for a couple of hours.
I’ve never had this flavor of hookah before (whatever it was, and not that you can tell from the photo).
I want to say I was also sober the entire time for this – only in New York would this happened.
Afterwards I met up with Jina, her brother and a couple of other friends, who managed to get us to do quite a few shots in quick succession. We’re then joined by a bunch of other people and end up at Kenka for more drinks.
Another round for the table?
Okay, so maybe I’m the only one that finds the graffiti amusing. Anyways, I think I stayed in the bathroom at Kenka longer than I needed just to
stare atadmire the graffiti. There is a lot it around the area that I just find clever or interesting.
At some point around 3 AM, I decided I’ve had enough and am dying to go to sleep. I was offered a ride from someone else in the group. Oh boy! It was the scariest ride in my life, but I made it home alive. Boys and girls, don’t ever drink and drive!
Also, there were so many things that went wrong trying to get there. But, Brooklyn/Williamsburg is a really chill place. It seems like a big hipster scene, and there’s lots of graffiti there as well.
Wandering the streets of Williamsburg. Apparently, we were going the wrong way.
Still, it was pretty.
We didn’t end up at Smorgasbord until the last half hour before it closed. I was able to eat 1 people’s pop bar and that was it. (The cantaloupe and ginger bar was quite tasty, but I would have liked some more ginger in it.) Suffice it to say, I was really really hungry later on. However, from what was left of the food there, it was quite tasty looking.
Apparently you can get a whole pig’s head. I was staring at it and one of the guys behind the table asked if I was going to get it. As much as I like to eat, I doubt me and friends could have finished it off. I like the concept though. You can eat all parts of the animal here.
However, It was a little awkward because afterwards we went to a art fair and I was just walking around with a bunch of carrots in me hand. I got a couple stares and I did consider on munching on them while walking around, but did not.
Fortunately, we had a filling dinner in Chinatown, but I don’t have pictures from that because I was too hungry and too excited about the food to take pictures.
