+1 for Raine's Room for an intimate setting. Bathtub Gin and Blind Barber for a party scene.

the fact that it appears to still be open gives me hope that it didn't continue to suck.

Good reminder. I'll put it on my list when I'm in town again this fall. Want to see the oyster spot

I really like the cocktails at the Campbell Apartment, but admittedly, I am no cocktail aficionado.

So I got behind a pair of slowpokes (not old or infirm) going up the subway stairs. As they appeared to be deep in conversation I slowed my pace and fell in behind them - at least they weren't staring at their phones trying to text! When I got to the top I realized they were not talking to each other but rather on their phones (doing that hands-free thing that makes you look like a crazy person talking to themselves) engaged in separate earnest conversations about nothing...

I was driving upstate yesterday and stopped on a county road for a schoolbus. The bus, another car, me. As I wait I glance in my mirror to see a 20-year-old in an SUV hammering down the road toward us. She's looking at her phone and doesn't notice we're stopped. I hit my horn and she looks up and slams her brakes and turns the wheel. Her tires scream as she skids past me and the other car to come even with the rear of the bus - 15 feet from a couple of kids.

 

Fucking idiot.

No doubt the text she was checking included a few "that's awesome".

 

She would have flattened me and probably would have driven the fly rod I had in the back through my skull. Worse ways to die, I guess.

To this day it baffles me that people decided to switch over to texting and driving after the emphasis on don't talk and drive became a thing. Tesla however, just came out with it's new autopilot update, so........

I confess to having done this just to be a pita. For some reason, I am thoroughly offended by the sight of someone going along at 70 mph while looking down at their phone and, apparently, steering with their knees. I think it is the sheer sense of entitlement this represents that sets me off.

Anyway, I have gotten a lot of personal amusement out of contemplating the texter trying to explain the stain on the seat the next time they take their car in for detailing.
