Open bar x 2
Last night, it was the wrap party for the Forum for Urban Design's bike-sharing demonstration project. Tonight, it was MoMA's opening reception for Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling. Last night, there were cookies and hors d'oeuvres like mini BLTs on brioche rolls and some sort of tortilla filled with cheese and pumpkin that actually tided me over. Tonight, the light snacks that were promised in the invitation turned out to be heavy on the lightness: mostly breadsticks and nuts. Thus, I'm chowing down on some late-night mac 'n cheese as I read about how NYC is a drinker's paradise in the summer. Says the Times: "a certain extra layer of permissiveness seems to infuse the city in the summertime, along with a wellspring of opportunities to get sloshed, slightly or mightily."
