I was overdue for a haircut and a beard trim, so yesterday Wrenn and I hied downtown to take care of that. It was nice to get out and about. The same guy’s been doing my hair (and beard since I grew it) since I was 18 years old, and I’ve followed him to five different salons in Greenwich Village.
We started with lunch at Two Boots’s new location on 7th Avenue South, which is delightful (complete with a hilarious Baby Yoda painting on the window). Two Boots combines good New York pizza with a delightful New Orleans attitude, and as an added bonus they have fountain sodas that includes birch beer, plus they have Boylan’s bottled soda.
Then after the haircut, we went to McNulty’s for some good coffee and tea — that place hasn’t changed since I was a little kid, and I love it, and their coffees and teas are superb — and then to Grand Central Terminal’s market for some spices before heading home.
Today it’s back to the grind, working on To Hell and Regroup and watching and reviewing the latest Picard episode, as well as my usual Thursday teaching…..
