yesterday mr.a and i finally got to go on a date--just the two of us! he woke me up saying that today we would do my two favorite things: eating and shopping! my mom took our girls for the afternoon, so we had lunch at miyabi 9 and browsed around east village.
after a couple stores, i had to bribe mr.a with a pint at the locust tap so he could keep going. when he takes me shopping, we have a system of one beer for every two stores. keeps us both happy.
the tap is this crusty old dive that has been open since 1930. every inch of the place is covered in rust or decay or graffiti. the bathroom floor is literally crumbling and the average patron...well, let's just say they blend well with the decor.
it was a great first date.
