So, I’ve been in NJ for yesterday and today. Originally was going to visit my Aunt again, but work schedule ended up being too tight. Thankfully, I managed to get out of having to be on a 7am flight this morning, but I’m now leaving around 8pm tonight most likely. Went to Manhattan for dinner last night with group…ate at a place called Dos Caminos, which did not have fajitas. 🙁 I had carne asada though with really good salsa as a dressing…very spicy. I also had quite a few Cosmo Des Diablo drinks (specialty of the restaurant): sugarfree sour mix (one good thing about NYC…the bars seem to be well stocked for the low carbers…yay for fad diet hubs!), pineapple juice, vodka, and a pepper. That’s right…a pepper. So it was sweet and spicy, like someone had dropped tabasco in it. Dee-lish! I had three of them, and was buzzy for the rest of the evening, needing no further drinkage when we went to this outdoor bar in a park. The weather was beautiful so walking around NYC at night was a treat, with the exception of the fact that NYC is no Chicago.
My hotel (Hampton Inn Chelsea) was spiffy. They had a snack in my room waiting for me, along with a lapdesk for working in bed. Breakfast this morning was sausage and eggs, and now I’m at the Plainfield office working until a meeting this afternoon, at which point I’ll limo to the airport at 4:45pm. Yay for the jetset JC!
