new year’s eve.

5 Jan 2012

December 31, 2011 was less about New Year’s Eve for me, and more about ending a pretty crazy year on a happy note, filled from beginning to end with good company, good food, and good cheer.  A success?  Methinks yes.  The day started at Mike and Justin’s place for some Premier League soccer watching and some glorious breakfast pizzas.  Yup: fried eggs over leftover bacon & sausage pizza.  Outstanding.  Later, my friend Jeremy and I wandered around Red Hook as the sun set, taking lots of photos and managing to get lost, before we finally found our way back to Court Street and Prime Meats for some cocktails.  Then!  Chinatown, for soup dumplings at two different (but perhaps related?) spots, Shanghai Asian Manor on Mott Street, and Shanghai Asian Cuisine on Elizabeth.  (The former’s xiao long bao are a tad better.)  Finally, it was off to a party at my pals Michael and Sara’s place, where we rang in the new year with maybe a wee bit too much Bulleitt Rye (excellent!) and Champagne.

So yes, indeed, a resoundingly successful end of the year and start of this new one.  Hope you all had equally wonderful days into nights.
