I also like to say that title with a Canadian accent.
Anyway, my brother is back in town from LA for the week and my sister is home for the month as well, AND my parents have the daughter of a family friend (from Bath!) staying with them while she works as an intern with an architecture firm here in the city so the house is full again and my mother is brimming with ways to entertain us all and keep my mind busy, ha.
One day my parents and I went for a walk along the promenade and through the park just underneath the Brooklyn Bridge to show Marina, the daughter, the architecture of downtown Brooklyn and some views of the city:
G is helping my mind stay busy too. We went to see Sebadoh at Bowery Ballroom and they were just as kickin' as at the Cat's Cradle show.
Before the show, we went to High Heat, a newish burger/pizza/bar in the West Village that G had gotten a groupon-ish deal for. There looks to be one vegan pizza and one vegan burger on the menu, but their fries are also a big draw - you can pick for them to be tossed in one of four different flavorings.
More Brooklyn entertainment: my family and Marina went to a Cyclones game out in Coney Island. The Cyclones (named for the famed Coney Island amusment park rollercoaster) are a Mets farm team, so it was cool to see the young kids who will hopefully play for the Mets some day (and maybe then we can win?)
Since I've been running around after work, I've been relying on picking up food rather than making my own:
I think that's enough for tonight. I hope you all are enjoying yr weekend.
