Big Apple Lust


I'm back from my brief visit to the Big Apple. Though short, it was great fun.

Some time at the Metropolitan Museum. Sitting in St. Thomas', Fifth Avenue, while someone practiced on their magnificent pipe organ. And, importantly, a pilgrimage to Christopher St, where I visited a leather shop (oh, it smelled so good), drank and chatted with folk at Ty's, and danced with a new friend at the Monster.

I met the friends and colleagues for which I'd made the trip for supper on Wednesday at Osso Bucco. We had a great meal, talked, laughed, ate, drank, and then went for drinks at local bar.

And, another first: I had a Cosmo! One of my friends had to take a picture.

So: fun, friends, and at least two punches in my gay card. Oh, I want to go back!

Hey! Glad you had a great time :-) I've visited ... not sure I could handle living there full time. I'm too much small-town Southern, I think; need to see stars and hear frogs every now and then.

:-* hugs and kisses, handsome!

A bear drinking a Cosmo - the world is definitely coming to an end!

I'm glad you had a great time.

You sound very pumped up and that would be a good thing. Which night did you visit "The Monster" and what goodies did you purchase in the leather shop (do tell we want all of the details).

Punches in your gay card?

So glad to read you had a great time! I have always wanted to go to NYC...especially to see a musical.

Happy you had a good time Joe, sounds great. Maybe one day I will get there as well.

David said...

How much fun!! And so well-deserved. There is nothing like NYC.

Your first cosmo. First step on the road of the multitude of fruity gay drinks, few of which I can really drink but I always try. Beer, wine, gin, and vodka for me. Or a mimosa!

Glad you had fun!
