It has taken me two full days to recover from this weekend. Drinking, partying and other unmentionables in a four day span with some of the most beautiful weather we’ve seen in a good long while. It was a great weekend to be ‘stuck’ in the city. It was also nice that for the most part the neighborhood was quiet. The bars were full but not packed, the vibe was relaxed and all in all it was a kick-ass holiday.
We hit all the local spots and had a great time.
One of the highlights of the weekend was checking out Cody Utzman’s (formerly of Brooklyn Label) new joint just for the Summer. Papacito’s is his new Mexican venture on Huron right off Manhattan Ave in an outdoor space behind the laundromat. He had a Memorial Day BBQ complete with burgers, steak and rice and beans. Plus all Mexican beers which was a nice touch and Danny the bartender kicked ass. Cheap eats, outdoor space and beer. Pretty much all you need from Memorial to Labor Day.
