A rainy day alone. As I was still avoiding Stephanie between 10am and 5pm, I spent an hour or two in the bagel place reading and taking advantage of the free wifi (Caroline's apartment was without since we got there).
As Lisa, Mirza and I didn't meet up yesterday we arranged to visit the 9/11 museum together. I stopped at Best Buy first to get a new power pack and then got the subway downtown. It was still raining but we found each other easily and then spent time in the museum paying our respects and catching up.
It was still raining when we came out but we walked to a local famous pizza restaurant which Lisa had looked up and Caroline recommended - Lombardis. The pizza was amazing, Lisa and I both got small but Mirza went Large and regretted it. By the time he had admitted defeat we were in the mood for a few drinks and it was great to hang out with more friends who happened to be in New York.
I took them to basically the only place I knew - Alligator Lounge. There was a DJ who had a class Spotify playlist on the go but after a round each we decided to head somewhere slightly fancier and quieter for a cocktail. After struggling to find it we arrived at Huckleberry. After one expensive drink and more chatting we called it a night as they had a new subway journey to navigate and I had to get back to Caroline's as I didn't have a key so she was waiting up.
We said our goodbyes at the L train station and headed to opposite platforms, it was so good to see them. Also had a nice chat with Caroline half cut when I got in.
