Railroad Earth and living solo

Quality weekend. In brief--we ate at Max's in alphabet city on Friday night. Check "M" off the list! Amazing meal... yummy prosciutto and the meatloaf was insane. Hard-boiled egg wrapped in ham wrapped in mozzarella cheese wrapped in meatloaf. Now THAT is a meal. Mmmmm...

Saturday I drove to New Jersey (Towaca) for cousin Rachel's triplets' first birthday. Zachary, Matthew and Jacob were as cute and sweet as can be. Good to see my folks and my grandmother. Drove back to the city to meet the crew at Chrissy and Kyle's place for a drink or two then went down to The Fillmore New York at Irving Plaza (yep, I just said that) for Railroad Earth. I always forget how amazing they are--just solid musicianship with great songwriting. Todd is the man, but you just can't beat Tim Carbone on the violin.

Tons of good people at the show and one long set hit the spot. We had a nightcap at Common Ground and then crashed. Sunday morning drove out to Livingston, NJ for cousin Lisa and new new hubby Joel's wedding party. More family time with a yummy brunch. Came back into the city that afternoon to find an empty apartment!

Lauren has fully moved out and Deanna will start moving in after her test (this Saturday! Wish her luck...). I cleaned the kitchen spic and span and will work on the extra bedroom later this week. We bought a couch for the new living room--an "L" shaped microfiber comfy full-size sleeper. It's long enough for me to lie across the long part with Deanna lying on the chaise side. Good stuff! Let's just hope they can fit it through my door or window :-)
