Belated Week 5 Wrap Up

Celebrity sightings: None.

Lunches/Dinners on the firm:
1) Toastie's East (3rd Ave, btw 55th and 56th)
2) Haru (3rd Ave, btw 75th and 76th)
3) Nobu 57 (57th St, btw 5th and 6th)
4) Campbell Apartment (42nd & Vanderbilt)
5) Local open bar event (53rd & 2nd)

Village Restaurant of the Week (to avoid): Risotteria, Bleecker btw 6th and 7th. The place was a hotbox with forgettably small soupy portions.

Village Bar of the Week: Blind Tiger, Bleecker btw 6th and 7th. Amazing beer selection with the most interesting pub grub I've ever seen.

Work related revelations:
1) This job is great when there's less of it.
2) You can never have too many blue shirts. Especially when temperatures are sweltering...and when I still eat as neatly as a five year old.

Numbing statistic of the week: 400 minutes (or 13 innings) of 1 run Yankee baseball. But, at least I was seated in the shade and next to a never ending source of Persian entertainment.

"That costs how much?" moment: $11 for a movie ticket. I know that's a lot, but somehow it just doesn't seem like it any more.

Quote of the week: "We can confirm receipt of the $2.4 billion wire."

Aside: So she and I are squeezing five days in Buenos Aires in between New York and New Haven this August. In the rare event that anybody still reads this and the rarer event that s/he's been to Argentina, please drop me a line with any recommendations.

First, I've been reading haphazardly this summer, but I hope that your summer at Big Law Firm has been going well :) (It sounds like you're working far more than I did!) Enjoy the last few weeks... cause next summer will be spent cramming away, and the less said about the bar exam process, the better.

Second, I went to Buenos Aires for a long weekend about two years ago, and had such an amazing time -- I know this sounds kind of morbid, but the La Recoleta Cemetary (where Eva Peron is buried), is beautiful, and there are a tons of bars/restaurants in the neighborhood that are great for cheap beer (and people watching). We also did one of those touristy Tango shows which was really overrated, so I don't think you two will miss anything if you choose not to attend.

Ok, back to NY Civ Pro. If you're still around in August, let's grab a drink? (Assuming, of course, that my brain doesn't explode before then!)

Hi Rina,

Thanks for looking out! We'll be sure to check out the Peron grave, on your orders.

So, studying for the Bar is actually as miserable an experience as it sounds? At least there's an end in sight for you. The last institutional hurdle of them all. Good luck!

And, because this too will pass, lets plan on meeting up in August for sure. I'm more than happy to play things by ear given, well, all that's going on by you...
