Well, our sneaky random trip to Queens was a success!
Emily’s friend, Jessie, who is an acrobat/anthropologist and lives all over the world, literally, wanted to hit up NYC while she was in town visiting her Mom in Baltimore. So we decided to pack our bags for Queens to stay with my cousin, Zack. We can’t ever turn down a road trip.
I sorta wanted to not have to go to Manhattan but we ended up going there one day, anyways. It was ok. I totally pretended like we were still in Queens. But the big bummer was that our favorite restaurant in Chinatown, the Sweet and Tart is gone. Gone for good. We’re sad. And the place we went instead was ok, the soups were great, but the waiter was a huge ass porcupine sucker.
All in all is was a nice trip and it’s always swell, not to mention educational, hanging with the Zack (and Jessie, too).
In Studio news, the electrical and low-voltage wiring passed the rough-in inspection today with the City. That means my wiring is ready to roll. No fire starters for me. And not bad for my first pro wiring job. The HVAC should be getting their inspection in the next day or two and the following day, after that, will be for the framing rough-in inspection. Hurrah! The next step is to install the insulation and the layered walls! More on that as it happens.
Oh and I totally just bought a Neumann U87 today from my friend Greg. I am in awe.
