Part II
Tisha had to go on a business trip, so I had find another NY residence.  Fortunately, I was able to get in contact with Kev's friend, Chuck.  He made me do manual labor out in strange parts of Jersey that no one's ever been, but it was a small price to pay for the accomodations and the good time I had.  I got some Adidas out of the deal as well, so I guess it all evened out.  Chuck's "place" was really incredible and served as a nice homebase for this leg of my NY trip.  Honestly, I didn't want to leave.  Oh well, I guess you have to leave something to come back to, right?  I also was able to get up with Kev's friend, Debbie.  She's definitely a heavy hitter, and I idolize her ambition and success.  Her restaurant is called the Speak Easy in Brooklyn, and if you're ever in the neighborhood, you should definitely drop by and eat--you wont be disappointed.
Standing in front of the financial center of the universe...
   My last night in town happened to coincide with the NBA draft, and a lot of the newly drafted players happened to wind up at the 40/40 club where I happened to be on Thursday night with Debbie.   It was like being in a National Geographic location with the following script (you have to read this next part in an English or Australian accent):  "Watch as the newly annointed heirs to the NBA throne are pursued by the wildly beautiful, but deadly creature called Goldus Diggus.   These helpless young men don't stand a change against her cunning, calculating pursuit and ultimately will pay most of their contracts out to her and other, frivolous endeavors..."  I'm heading back to DC for my final weekend on the East Coast...
