In a bar in downtown hell

I spent Christmas Eve and Day with the sibs that live in NYC. It was a holiday of unexpected fun. We bought a hodgepodge of food and beer from Whole Paycheck, went to my brother’s apartment, ate, drank and watched I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. The food was surprisingly good, the beer unsurprisingly strong, and the movie surprisingly funny. In any case, a good old fashioned new age Jewish Christmas.

The next night, we went to dinner. On the way, my sister and her friend were discussing bars from Berlin. The bar names were all related to breakups. At which point we started talking about a future bar we would call “It’s Not You, It’s Me.” My brilliant addition? 2 for 1 drink specials for the recently dumped. The catch? You gotta give the second drink to someone else. Anyhow good times.

Also, good music? Paramore’s “Misery Business” and Boys Like Girls’ “Hero/Heroine.” Also, Bad Religion’s”Honest Goodbye.”
