Saturday started at a very relaxed pace following Friday's activities. Around lunchtime Stefan and I walked around the neighbourhood. Our destination was called Bagel Pub. Specialising in Bagels. They also serve smoothies and salads. I opted for a Cinnamon & Raisin bagel, with Bacon Scallion Cream Cheese and an iced coffee. After brunch we watched Beasts of the Summer Wild. A film about a young girl living south of the levy in Louisiana. This had been recommend by Jen and was a good watch.
All too soon it was time to go out again. Still not sure if I was up to the evening I pressed on. Our first stop was to meet one of Emily's college friends Nath & his husband. They had chosen a bar/restaurant on 46th street. This meant we did have to negotiate Times Square. It's bad enough at he best of times but in the rain it was ridiculous. Everyone apart from me had an umbrella and I was lucky to escape without loosing an eye. We initially walked past the bar. This was part of the charm of the place. You have to know it's there. Set in an old first floor apartment, there are no signs for the place. Inside it was a great relaxed atmosphere, where we tried a bottle of New York wine.
Our dinner plans for tonight certainly lived up to the hype. We went to Komo Sushi on Bleecker street, that I have now been to at least three times on this trip. Directly opposite the Blind Tiger I went to with Barry. This establishment popular with the college crowd, plays loud music and offers unlimited drink. You pay $37 and receive as much food, beer/wine & sake you can get through in two hours. Capitalising on everyone desire to drop something in their drink. Sake bombs are encouraged. The food was unbelievably good. Emily & her friend soon gave up. This left Stefan and I with a full plate to finish. Which we almost completed. On the way home Stefan & I stopped in the union street bar. With its low level lighting it was a cool place. Showing both baseball and movies on its screens.
Back at home we watched a comedy accompanied by a Moscow Mule
