NYC - early August

The week started off Monday with Muse at Madison Square Garden. I've seen them about 5 times now and they actually get better and better (and bigger and bigger) with each and every show. Even though there are just 3 of them, they definitely know how to put on a show. Highlights included 'Unintended' (one of my oldest favorites being played for the first time in the U.S.) and 'Invincible'. We had seats just above the floor on the side so had a pretty good view of the pit...ah those young kids and their moshing.

Upside of big concerts in NY: No post-concert traffic jam...just walk home.
Downside of big concerts in NY: No pre-concert tailgating.

Tuesday: Tornado

Thursday was Brooklyn and the Beastie Boys...I've already written about that...good show. I'd definitely go see them again.

Friday: Richard Serra exhibit at MoMA. Really great museum and an interesting exhibit of huge steel sculptures. Boring up close, but pretty amazing when you stand back and take a look and try to comprehend 'scuplting' such a piece. MoMA also has one of my favorite paitings, Van Gogh's 'Starry Nights' as well as a cool wing on Design and Architecture. It was also 60 and rainy that day which was cool (and cold). And Friday nights are free at MoMA courtesy of Target. Damn just make me love you more and more.

Saturday: My first sample sale. Quite an interesting environment...a loft full of racks of jeans and blaring techno music. Not sure why we needed techno music but it worked...I bought a pair of Lucky Brand jeans...probably the cheapest ones they had. Tried on some Seven jeans for the first time...pretty damn comfortable.

Saturday Night: Had Ethiopian food for the first time...not bad. Taking family style to the next level sorta as you share the one big plate they bring it all out on. No utensils of course so you just scoop it up with your hands or with the crepe like bread they give you. Very flavorful. Wet naps were definitely appreciated.

Tomorrow night...Shakespeare in the Park's Mid-Summer Night's Dream @ Central Park.
