new years eve.

4 Jan 2011

I rang in the new year at the local, but the shenanigans started much earlier in the day.  After a trip to a Chelsea optometrist to get a new pair of glasses, I decided to stop into Co. for some pizza; after all, I’d ended 2009 with a great meal at Motorino — why not continue the trend in 2010?  One sausage, fennel, and mushroom pie and a glass of sparkling Gruner Veltliner later, I stuck around for a bit, to catch up on some reading.  Two gentlemen sat down next to me at the bar, in a jovial and generous mood, buying another glass of Gruner for me while they scarfed down three pies between the two of them.  “We needed a snack before our 8:30 reservations at Per Se!” they proclaimed.  They were hilarious (and, apparently, serious about their Per Se reservations — goodness, some people know how to live).  Then they proceeded to buy a round of the Gruner for the bar.  It was a most perfect, if unexpected, way to end the year.
