we were all set to have some friends over from our baseball team for a little end of the year bbq (really grilling), but they cancelled last minute.
dw got an itchin' for a tourist trip into nyc, so we decided to go see the intrepid: The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
very cool place, and pretty reasonable for this town.
after the intrepid, we headed down to little italy to a place we stumbled upon and ended up loving this summer. it was paisanos on mulberry street
dinner was, hmm, just ok this time. we started with house salads, then dw had the lobster ravioli in vodka sauce (gack! but she said it was ok), my boy had the ny strip (also ok but fatty), and i had the steak pizzaola. again just ok.
dw had a coffee after dinner, and my boy and i had espressos; his decaf, mine full octane.
in the past, i've taught the boy that espresso is the foil for a cloyingly sweet dessert, but since it was late we skipped the desert.
that was a mistake. either the waiter gave my boy a full caffeine espresso, or without the dulce, even a decaf espresso has some rocket fuel in it.
either way, as i left for work tonight my boy was up and dw was growling at me since tomorrow is a school day.
we'll be back in little italy soon for the feast of san gennaro, so i think we need to try the place next door.
