I'm running off on a little adventure in a few days so I thought I'd drop this "Photos of Friends" July wrap-up a little early. Here are pictures of friends and things we did in July 2014.
There was this one night where I grabbed burgers with Allison. Clarke's Standard, really pretty decent and practically a bargain.
One Saturday I brunched at Frankies with Emily and Lyndi.
There's this hat store in the Village where they know Emily.
Dipped into Sockerbit and I finally had my first Doppade Floppy (that's Swedish for "chocolate covered strawberry marshmallow dolphin")
Looked at pictures at the Leica Gallery (an itinerary coincidence)
Headed over to Morgenstern's. I'm sorry. I take too many photos. I know.
Walking around a bit on my way to a barbecue at Claire and Evan's that night.
(this is what it's like outside my front door on the weekends)
Up on the roof the light was really friendly for taking pictures of friends. I should have taken a lot more pictures. Or at least have gotten a picture of our hosts.
Here's Jeff and Dakota.
Andrea and Elijah.
Uhm...Spencer, I think?
If you're ever at the Soho 16 Handles, check out the VIP room.
A few nights later saw Dawn of the Planet of the Apes with Jeff and Alpha. Alpha told us about this book she'd been reading, "Selected." Did I go home and read it? Stay tuned for my upcoming book reports to find out!
The other weekend roommate Charles's friend Katie was in town and I'm friends with Katie, so it was a real party. Part of which was held at the Break Room.
And another part was held at the new mega-Ample Hills in Gowanus.
Here I am with Charles's friend Amanda who is also my friend. The smiling photobomber behind us? Mr. Ample Hills.
This ice cream parlor has a roof deck with lounge chairs.
It's kind of the #1 chill-out spot for Summer 2014.
Lines all the time all night long for this ice cream.
Ample Hills is just down the block from Royal Palms, Brooklyn's throwback shuffleboard alley.
Ten lanes of shuffleboard excitement...and I know it's probably not right to use bowling words to describe shuffleboard, but how else am I supposed to describe it? I don't know what a biscuit or a pigeon is.
If you go: Don't miss the bathrooms.
