Also, I’m pretty sure we saw Al Roker (warning, silly plane SFX, turn audio down) at Blue Canal on Broadway, with a full entourage of about twenty folks. A photo was snapped in front of the (Thai?) bas-relief in the waiting area, but not of or by me. Maybe Al will update his journal.
If I had to guess, I’d say the Cheery One was hereabouts due to the annual conference of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Next week, it’s the College Art Association a-comin’ ter town. I’ll be hooking up with long-lost childhood drinking buddy Herb “Herbie” Reith.
He’s not been known as “Herbie,” actually, since he crossed the far side of the six-foot-plus construction-worker-physique line. But I knew him when he was but a wee sprat!
