OKOK sometimes it's really easy to get caught under an overwhelming deluge of backlogged stuff. Here are three meals Out that have been building up in the background all MoFo month long. I am too lazy to make three separate posts.
G and I went to the new Loving Hut in Bushwick.
eggplant stir fry.
I've since heard that almost all the Loving Huts look like this inside. Lots of positivity, which always freaks me out. It was clean and minimalist but I think G was a little off-put by the design. Sorry to say the service was terrible. It was really stressful waiting around for someone to come by and kinda put me in a bad mood for the whole meal. The food was good, though. Cheap for portion size and generous. I doubt I'd return - it's not my kind of food in the first place, and it's just a pointless chain among other, more welcoming places to eat.
I took a Thursday off to go to the Columbia market. Thursdays are G's
usual days off, so we went to brunch on a quiet morning at the (fairly
new) Bliss on Grand Street. This place is more my speed than Loving Hut and only slightly farther from the subway than the original Bliss (at Bedford and N. 7th.)
Another Sunday, G helped his dad out at a weekly flea market in Chelsea. I met them afterward in the West Village.
We almost got Ethiopian food but went with Quantum Leap, where we'd all been before and knew we'd all find something we wanted to order.
Lifethyme and got some frozen ice cream/cookie sandwiches. G's was mint, mine was mocha flavored.
Yea, so, I'm working on a new zine and sorting my thoughts out for that, but I do eventually want to do a post about what I learned/enjoyed/whatever'd about the farmer's market month. In the meantime expect a couple more backtrack posts.
