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.

wow.

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.
