so, i got 8 days away from the office to spend in NYC. i've been there once before but was working for most of it. My wife is not coming as she's leaving for Europe with her grandmother right after I leave. so...I have a camera, 80gb worth of SD cards, a good friend's pad to crash in, and pretty much nothing else on the agenda.
my interests are craft beer, photography, craft beer, the ocean/rivers/bays, craft beer, architecture, craft beer, hole in the wall amazing restaurants, and craft beer.
oh...and baseball. and craft beer.
any locals got recommendations for this lifelong chicagoan to see? btw, i grew up with a chip on my shoulder about NYC with all the second city talk about my town. then i went to NYC. it's no contest. while i live in an amazing city, it's like comparing apples and ferraris.
