I spent my Thanksgiving holiday in New York City staying with the excellent Mr. Tim.
He lives in a blisteringly stylish studio in Brooklyn, and I spent much of my time there ogling his furniture.
None of the windows in San Francisco have panes like this, which something I didn’t even notice until I was looking out over Brooklyn.
I also really liked how this rug makes it look like my legs are being sucked into a cow shaped vortex.
We went to the Tim Burton exhibit at the MOMA.
The section of the museum with pink walls was my favorite.
I was totally enamored by the work of Matthias Megyeri, particularly his Sweet Dreams Security series.
This garland is actually barbed wire.
I was also really into this red cross medicine cabinet, and these giant pill lights.
The bauhaus exhibit was really great, too, but the guards were even more strict about photography. At least I got a picture in front of the sign.
We ate epic Chinese food and drank liquid cocaine.
We met up with Zoog, Xtian, and Jesse, and had dinner at a Chinese restaurant in the Bowery with amazingly tacky LED lighting.
They had a ridiculous drink menu that had lots of beverages with offensive names.
We got the liquid cocaine (151, cinnamon schnapps, and Jager- oh my!).
I had so much fun, I forgot to take any pictures. Gala took the cute shots above and below.
Panna II is my new favorite fire hazard.
On Gala’s recommendation, we went to this restaurant with totally out of control Christmas and chili pepper lights.
The menu actually says “Where Christmas lights meet chili pepper lights.”
There’s another restaurant next door with exactly the same shtick, and they yell at you from the doorway trying to convince you why you should eat there.
Nikki Cook joined us, and we talked comics and ate spicy things.
Then we went to Brooklyn and drank in a bar with rad wallpaper.
It was great to be back east even if it was only for a couple days.
I really miss my friends back there, so here’s hoping I’ll be able to spend more time in New York soon!
Tim accompanied me back west, and we have a ton of adventures left to go on that I’m excited to share with you.
Next stop: Vegas!
