How did I survive Snowpocalypse 2010, you ask? At the risk of sounding complainy, things did not go well at all.
After a fantastic Christmas, my Sunday flight got canceled, rebooked, then canceled again. Unfortunately, Delta sort of... turned off their phones and their website went down. That's when the fun started.
I spent an hour on hold with Orbitz, then actually got through with Delta and spent another hour waiting for a human. Rebooked again, and then showed up at the airport to find out I wasn't on the flight. Spent a day and a half at the airport trying to fly standby. Finally got on a flight Wednesday by the skin of my... something. Got back to New York and almost kissed my stoop.
Since being back, I:
-Hilariously actually went to a warehouse party in "East" Williamsburg for NYE. Finished the night at Sweet Ups. Did The Robot a lot.
-Made waffles and snuggled on the couch listening to records like it was my job.
-Pub crawled the East Village with boyfriend and friends, making sure to hit Cake Shop. Had midnight dinner at Liquor Bar. Much like Peels, where I enjoyed a very long, cozy, boozy, pre-Christmas sendoff, it's at the top of my List.
-Got brunch at The Bedford and walked around Greenpoint.
-Spent a handful of terrified moments at The Thing before completely throwing in the towel and admitting defeat in the face of decades-forgotten vinyl.
-And finally, first taco of the year at Endless Summer.
An ideal start to the new year, I think.
