date night

What a day….and night.

I had a meeting at ICM today that is located on 8th ave between 49/50th.  The lobby had really interesting art.  It was like a small show.  The artist above is Margaret Morrison.  I met with someone at ICM who I had an immediate connection with and for an added bonus had one degree of separation with on many levels.  When I left I bumped into someone I know from San Francisco in the main lobby.  Totally random considering I haven't been in that neck of the woods in over 20 years.

Last night I had a date night with my good friend Mo.  He came by around 730 and we walked over to Joseph Leonard for dinner ( we are both investors ).  En route we bumped into his good friend who I know too.  He told me that he had made my brisket last month and it was delicious.  Yay!

Gabe and Gina were there and we hung with them before getting a seat.  After dinner, which was delicious, we both saw that on foursquare someone we both knew had checked in. We found him at the bar with his friend having dinner.  His friend wanted to eat at Joseph Leonard because he read about it on my blog.  Another Yay!  As we were leaving someone introduced themselves to me who I have emailed with many times but had never met in person.  So psyched to finally meet her face to face and we are definitely going to have coffee.  Another Yay.

Mo and I grabbed a cab over to Webster Hall and met up with Michael from Aviary to see the Shout Out Louds. The show was good not great.  Live music is one of those things.  Sometimes it brings the music to another level and sometimes it all just sounds the same.  A little bit of the latter here.

Afterward, we left and went to a party where I bumped into a variety of people I knew.  I should get out more!  Spent some time talking to the founders of Venmo which was really interesting.  By midnight, I had my fill.

A great date night with Mo….and such a New York night.  I loved it!

    At your suggestion we are going to go to Joseph Leonard this week. It’s terrible we live in NY and get into total restaurant rut….same five places all the time!

    You live an extremely well curated life. I follow so many of your suggestions it almost feels stalkery. We enjoyed a late dinner last Saturday @ JL after having drinks @ the upholstery store. See what I mean? Anyway the meal was awesome – we sat at the kitchen counter and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Thanks for all the legwork!
