My first slice, at Gothamist HQ. Do you know they don’t have pizza boxes there, so a take-out order you have to walk all the way back like this!
Waterfront Picnic 09.20.2009
I never take lunch breaks, so it was sort of nice to be able to when I worked on a Saturday. Picnic!
Bad Veins @ Work 08.06.2009
Bad Veins came to play some songs at my office today. Will have video shortly.
UPDATE: Video here.
Sign Sign Everywhere a Sign 07.22.2009
Apparently locals are upset that this cafe/bar put a sign out front indicating who they were, ruining the totally false “speakeasy” vibe that said locals were under the impression it had. Oh silly DUMBO-ites, it never had that vibe.
Music Driveby 07.16.2009
Say what you will about Third Eye Blind, this was a totally enjoyable lunch break at the office today. Stephan Jenkins really is one good looking man. Seriously. It is unfair how well men age. But sadly, he didn’t play Jumper for us. Why, you ask? Because our pal asked him to play some song called Motorcycle Driveby that totally doesn’t sound anything like Jumper at all. And he picked her song, leaving us wanting more. Always the way with those good looking men. Here’s what happened afterwards:
C: i saw him in the green triangle park outside of your office and was like, everyone hates me because you didn’t play jumper
me: what did he say?
C: “they didn’t like motorcycle driveby?????”
and then i tripped
it was all very embarrassing
he is so hot, i got nervous
Anyway, the ladies left with crushes are all fairly certain that he is the ’90s nostalgia pop version of George Clooney and will never settle down. Sigh.
UPDATE: Now with video (watch here)!
The Roof, The View 07.08.2009
Today there was a fire on the Manhattan Bridge, but it was just far enough towards Manhattan that I couldn’t see it. In fact, you’d look at this picture and never think there was a huge fire on a major NYC structure. Anyway, here’s the view from the roof at Gothamist HQ!
