1 Year in New York City

Brooklyn Bridge 5

Lisa and I on the Brook­lyn Bridge, taken some time in 2004. (I real­ize that it was not taken in the past year, but it’s a great photo!)

I can’t let this pass with­out a men­tion – last Fri­day was the 1-year anniver­sary of our move from Cam­bridge to Brook­lyn. Since then, we’ve started new jobs, recon­nected with old friends and made new ones, and had an all-around great time.

I miss Boston from time to time, but couldn’t be hap­pier liv­ing and work­ing in New York City. Why would any­body live any­where else?

Blogging for 7 years?

I’m totally get­ting old! I just real­ized that I missed my “blog­ging” anniver­sary… On this past July 11, this site hit the 7 year mark.


FIrst Post? It was about that brick of a dig­i­tal cam­era (point-n-shoot) that I bought that summer.

My orig­i­nal weblog was on blog­ger, and then was migrated to a ned.suckahs.org, when we set up the suck­ahs domain in July 2001. (More on that here.) In Feb­ru­ary 2005, I decided to split it out into the domain I use today.

9 years

cardThe years are just fly­ing by, I can’t believe it… on mon­day, the girl and I cel­e­brated 9 years together, in the best way we know how: shar­ing a tasty meal.

And what bet­ter place to have a nice din­ner, than a 4-star restau­rant in a con­verted Burger King? Seri­ously.

Ren­dezvous just opened up in Cen­tral Square, in the old Burger King, and it is really really good. The Phoenix loves it. So does the Globe. And we do, too.

8-year Anniversary

Just a note of thanks to Stef & Nobuko for rec­om­mend­ing Dali’s for our anniver­sary dinner.

Pres­ley and I have been together now for 8 years, and I don’t think we’ve ever had a finer expe­ri­ence. Because of the bliz­zard, we had to delay one day, but it was worth the wait… (a cou­ple of pho­tos of us… gag!)

Tapas items that we ordered:

  • Mejil­lones con Agua­cate (Green-Lipped Mus­sels w/Avocado)
  • Queso de Cabra Montaña (Baked Goat Cheese w/Tomato & Basil)
  • Gam­bas al Ajillo (Gar­lic Shrimp)
  • Vieiras al Azafrán (Scal­lops in Saf­fron Cream)
  • Ravi­o­les de Mariscos (Lobster/Crabmeat Ravi­oli w/Langostino Sauce)
  • Solomillo en Tostada (Beef Ten­der­loin w/Pimento on Toast)

And, for dessert:

  • Fil­loa al Licor (Fruit-filled Dessert Crepe accented with Choco­late Sauce and Orange Liquor)

Anniversary with the Sabres

romantic night

A roman­tic night wouldn’t be com­plete with­out Cana­dian beer

On Jan­u­ary 23, Pres­ley and I marked our 7th anniver­sary, and I couldn’t think of a bet­ter way to spend it than at the Sabres-Bruins hockey game. Am I right?

Just so you don’t think I’m weird, our first “date” was a Sabres game (in Buf­falo) in Decem­ber of 1996. So, it was a nice reminder for us, and it was cool. Thanks to Craigslist, we got first-row, on-the-glass seats. Amazing.

6 Years <3

Pres­ley and I spent our 6th anniver­sary at Car­los, lit­tle Ital­ian restau­rant in the old neigh­bor­hood in All­ston. It’s a quiant lit­tle place with good wine and ter­rific food. She had an Riga­tone with Egg­plant roll, meat­balls, sausages and chicken, in a plum tomato sauce. I had the lob­ster ravi­oli with salmon, plum toma­toes, in a lemon vodka sauce. She gave me the new McSweeny’s pack­age of issues 1–3 (reprint) and the upcom­ing issue 10. I gave her… um, din­ner. I’m poor lately.
